Deer and laundry

You read that right. Deer and laundry. I was looking on facebook a while ago and discovered a very disturbing trend. I have laundry issues. Now, I know already that laundry is not my favorite household chore. I put it off as long as possible and always have. That is not the issue though. What is, is that I must really think that everyone wants to know about my dirty laundry. Nearly every status update has the word laundry in it. Why is that? What do you or the rest of the world care about my whites and towels? Now if I had some real dirty laundry- that would be interesting. People might actually want to know that. If I dug deep enough I know I know I could come up with something. But wait. I do have something for you who are interested in the darker side of my life. We eat deer, venison, Bambi-we do. And we love it. It tastes good. And it's cheap because we get it from a family member who hunts. He's gonna shoot a wild boar for us if he sees one(we'll pay for the processing of course). My mouth waters at the thought. Tonight we are having stuffed bell peppers made with ground deer. It's going to be good. Delicious even. So don't hate me because I'm beautiful, hate me because I am a proponent of managing and using our natural resources wisely. By the way I do not agree with the cutting down of old growth forests or clearcutting, leasing national forests to loggers or the eradication of the North American Grey Wolf.
So there. I have more but I need to get off my soapbox and start cooking!

Venison rocks and don't let anyone else tell you otherwise. I miss hunting or having a source like you have. Wild boar would be exciting too. My favorite was venison tenderloin sandwiches, grilled with cheese.

Yeah, we get the deer because the wife of the "hunter" can't stand the thought of eating poor bambi. I say "bambi good eats". And last year he shot a wild boar and gave it to the processer because he thought no one would want it. What a silly man. We quickly disabused him of that notion. My country roots come out with deer cause my favorite is chicken fried cutlets with biscuits and gravy. Yum Yum Yum
