Oh Deer, Oh Deer

Today was Venison Day at Arby's Restaurants around the country. Each store got a small supply (Fernley's store said two boxes) of venison steaks, and they went on sale at 10 AM local time. When I came at 11:30, they still had some, so I was able to have venison for the first time in quite a while.

Oh, Deer

Okay, it's a fast food steak sandwich. And venison is difficult to prepare. (My grandmother did some excellent things with the deer my family hunted, some of which she'd brought down herself. My family never hunted for trophies; if we killed it, we ate it.) So this wasn't the best meal I've ever had, but I was glad to have it nonetheless.

From the people at the local store, I understand that they may have elk next year when they do a similar promotion. If I'm around, I'll have that. I like elk, too, and it's been a while since I last had it. When Lisa was in Mehama, the meat market across the highway had ground elk available, and the burger shack in Mehama would serve elkburgers. I think our last trip through Mehama was the last time I had elk.
