Homemade Cranberry Sauce:
In the winter, how can we not to have cranberry sauce for the roast meat dish... Homemade cranberry sauce. Paired with orange or kiwi would be the best!
自己做的蔓越果酱:
说来烤肉,这么能没有蔓越果酱!自己家做的蔓越果酱配上猕猴桃或者橘子都无可挑剔。。。


The homemade cranberry sauce gives the tangy taste and brings the full flavor of the roast meat, especially for venison, or Elk. It is a must have if you cook venison...
Make it individual dish for the cranberry sauce is our favorite.
自己做的蔓越果酱果香带甜,微带酸会让烤肉味道更浓,西方人的这项发明非常棒,蔓越果酱做成小份的非常合适


Elk Roast:
My husband got a Elk in 2018. It is first time for me to cook the Elk roast in my life. I was nervous about it because I know how much my husband loved Elk. Don't want to ruin it. I did some research on the internet and followed the warning sign not to cook too long. It came out of oven with 130F inside gave the whole family joy. Kids loved them as well which hard to believe. I guess the gene is there...
烤无骨驼鹿腿
今年先生打到一只驼鹿,这是我第一次烤驼鹿腿,别说还真有些紧张,很怕烤太干,糟蹋了辛辛苦苦的打猎战利品,查了很多资料


Homemade Buttery dinner rolls.
Our traditional butter rolls tasted so buttery even without butter. Please see my blog for the recipe.



Dessert: Homemade Venison minced meat pie and Coconut cream pie
Time is precious for me as a full time working woman and three kids mom at home. I didn't get chance to make to the grocery early enough and didn't have enough time to find minced meat pie stuffing.  The only option is to make it by myself and simplify the ingredients on hands. I made it with deer meat this year. It was unbelievable

Ingredients:
a cup of raisins and dry cranberries,
1/2 cup candied citric fruit peels,
2 cups of apples,
1 cup brown sugar, 
1 cup of apple juice,
1 cup water,
1 tsp all spices, clover, cinnamon, pinch of salt,
1 lb ground deer meat.
Use a heavy bottom pot and bring all above to boil. Simmer for 1 hr with cover. Cool and make pie filling.


It is classic dessert in the wild west America. In the old days, this dessert melted cowboy's heart.....




I also made a coconut cream pie to delight the kids. The dinner is completed.










Kids opened the last little window on the Christmas calendar and told me that tomorrow is the Christmas. Merry Christmas!



I don't have special photo studio. I take photos on our dinner table, just for fun. Enjoy dinner together as family is far more important than anything else. Wish everyone had a happy holiday.
