Last weekend The Flirt and I went on a road trip to Fargo, and it was a much needed outing.
A few weekends before, The Flirt and his nephew went deer hunting, and he was able to fill his buck tag. Since we don’t have a garage, or anywhere else to process game, his nephew volunteered to process the deer. He, his girl friend, and best friend broke down the meat, ground it up, made sausage, and smoked it for us.
I am profoundly grateful as I have no idea how to do any of that.
I have plans to learn these skills this coming year, in hopes of being able to process a deer next year. I’m even toying with the idea of getting my hunter’s safety so that I can go hunting too.
So, now we have 25 pounds of extra meat in the freezer. It’s a just little freezer, and it’s not full yet, but that’s ok. It’s just the two of us here in this little house.
Not only did we bring home some really amazing deer sausage, but it was a great drive. The weather was good, and we got to go somewhere else. Due to COVID we haven’t gone on many road trips at all this year. The last time I was out of town was July. We are used to taking lots of small trips in the summer, and we missed them terribly.
We couldn’t have asked for a better start to this trip. The sunrise was so lovely, we had to take a few shots of it.
Here’s hoping that you all have, or make, opportunities to get out when and where you can. Get some fresh air, watch the sun rise, take a drive. Hang in there… better times are coming. Blessings all!
