When in Montana, eat like a Montanan

What's for dinner? In the last week or so, we've had:

Pheasant Noodle Soup
Elk Pot Pie
Stromboli with Elk Italian Sausage
Roast Beast and Gravy with Mashed Potatoes
Chili con Wild Carne
Minestrone with Elk Garlic Sausage
Pepper-Cheese Elk Steak Sandwiches

Feeling adventurous? Drop in anytime for dinner. We've got Pheasant Enchiladas and Cabbage Casserole with Elk Meatballs coming up on the menu!

Those of you who know my vegetarian tendencies may be shocked. But those of you who know my frugal tendencies won't. Aaron's brother who lives up here is the Great White Hunter; he got a HUGE elk this season and told us we were welcome to as much as we could eat. Thanks, Bill! When you're trying to keep your grocery budget down in a small town where groceries are pricier, you can't beat free! And don't knock it 'til you try it--it's all gotten rave reviews from this crowd!

Monette, you are awesome. That menu sounds great....especially if you like meat! Tyler wants to come visit.

It's been so long--I have no idea how I'd cook all of that. Reminds me of when we were newlyweds and we got our share of the Fillore butchered cows. Way to use what's available.

I Love your posts! I have a vegetarian tendency myself. I am so happy that things are working out well for you guys. Congrats on your little Hazel, and I am glad that you are enjoying the Montana winter. Thank you for keeping us updated! You sure are awesome friends and examples to us!

I almost thought you copied my menu from this week, except for we also have Bear-Sausage & Rice Casserole.
