Most people think that living on the homestead we just eat vegetables and nothing store bought at all. But that is far from reality.
However, I do make quick meals with a mixture of wild meats that are home canned and store bought foods.
Here is am example of a fast “I have worked all day” meal.
I will open the jar of deer meat, drain and reserve the juice, roll in flour, then fry in canola oil.
While the meat is browning I make mashed potatoes with instant potatoes, while not the healthiest option its still not a bad option. For me the best side dish is sweet peas! I just drain the juice and add a chunk of real butter.
Then for a change I did make gravy, I used the grease I cooked the deer meat in, tossed in a few spoons of flour, cooked the flour till light brown and added the deer broth I reserved.
And that is my dinner from the homestead.
How do you do a homestead dinner?
