Ice Fishing Contest…Blue Gill Chowder

Perfect day for ice fishing. We didn't catch anything other than a tan! Actually, my son Lee, tried to pull a huge northern up out of the hole. It broke the line before he was able to get it out of the water. Oh well, we had a fabulous time any way. Good friends came… Continue reading Ice Fishing Contest…Blue Gill Chowder

Cooking Pheasant 101: Do Not Over Cook

I don't like to be  awakened in the middle of the night. After giving birth to 4 children I figured I've put in my time in -in the sleepless nights department.

Good-bye Pheasant, Hello Fish! Blueberry Pheasant Pie

I’m pulling the last pheasant out of the freezer today. One of the odd signs that spring is here is the depleting meat supply in my freezer. Because Hunting occurs in the fall, wild game takes up half the freezer.  The 4H kids winning cattle entry- meat makes up the other half after the local… Continue reading Good-bye Pheasant, Hello Fish!

Road kill for dinner?

My husband has not had the best luck with his new car. We have only had for 2 years and he has left a trail of road kill in his wake. Before that he drove a white 1993 Ford conversion van and yes we bought it new in 1993. Not once during those 16 years… Continue reading Road kill for dinner?
