Well a new tradition was started this year for thanksgiving. Our friend Ed invited us over to share in a feast centering around wild game that was taken over the course of the year. This gave us a great time to share the Dove that we were blessed with this year during our first dove hunt. Though I don’t personally eat meat, I always enjoy getting together with this crew and watching them enjoy the fruits of our (yes I do help clean and cook the game) labor. It was a great night full of wonderful company and tasty food (or so I heard)
Here are some highlights.
Anytime there is a fire involved I am in… we had a lovely hobo fire to keep us warm while we waited for the food.
I had fun playing around with the camera while we waited too.
First to be done was the bacon wrapped dove breasts. Even the non game lovers Loved these… they didn’t last long.
Next up was the bacon wrapped venison tenderloin bites.
Even the veggies were not safe from the bacon wrapping…. our chefs are obviously bacon fans.
And our friend’s HWV is a huge fan of “Uncle Chris”
Venison tenderloin served with goat cheese and balsamic reduction. Seriously this was like a top chef wild game cook off.
Ed has quite a few pictures of food that I didn’t capture as well as a great (as always) write up of the event. Check it out on his great blog. I also made a new mac and cheese recipe featuring Brie, Havarti, Sharp Cheddar and Fontina cheese, all topped with a garlic butter ritz cracker crumb on top… that was my main course and it was quite delish too.
Bourbon pecan pie and pumpkin rolls was dessert… I did not try the pie but I did have 3 slices of the pumpkin roll. Apparently I was too busy eating it to take a pic of it. Next time ;-)
