Venison Stew

Thursday, October 28, 2010

The temperature is falling, so I'm in the mood for some good comfort food.  Tonight we are having venison stew, one of my favorite meals, because it's taste so good, and not to mention quick and easy to make.

1 LG. can of tomato sauce
1 SM can of tomato sauce
1 can of Rotel ( I use HOT b/c I like my stew spicy)
1/2 bag frozen green beans
1/2 bag frozen corn
6 large carrots
5-6 red potatoes
1/2 white onion or onion powder will work too
garlic powder
venison or beef medallions

Brown your venison or beef and put in crock pot.  Cut all veggies into bite size pieces and add them in the crock pot.  Add tomato sauce & Rotel.  Add garlic powder.  Cook on high for 5-6 hours or until veggies are tender.

**Note-you can add whatever veggies you & your family like.  There is no limit!  It also freezes well!


Good News!!!

For the past two mornings, I've gotten really dizzy and clammy, so I decided to head to the Dr. this morning to make sure everything is going on okay.  We just got back from the Dr. I don't have gestational diabetes, so I'm creating enough insulin, but my body gets rid of the sugars in my food really rapidly, which causes my blood sugar level to drop-I'm conditional hypoglycemic.  The Dr. says I need to eat more smaller meals throughout the day.

Now for the REALLY good due date has been moved!!! Baby Emma's new arrival date is now December 21st, the day after my birthday, and the day of the Moore Christmas party.  Ever since I found out I was having a December baby I told the mother-in-law that she would probably ruin the party, well not ruin, but interrupt it!  So here is a 31 week picture...

We are off to Crandall this weekend for Miss Emma's first shower!  I'm so excited about seeing all of my friends and family back at home.  It should be a great weekend!!! I hope you & yours have a wonderful one too!

29 weeks, Hunting, and Family-oh & the Bestie's 27th bday!

Miss Emma and I started 29 weeks today, only 11 more weeks until we see her pretty little face.  We went to the Dr. yesterday and she is doing great. I got two shots, 3 things of blood drawn, and my figure pricked, but I PASSED my glucose test, so it was a wonderful visit, despite all the needles.

Her room is finally finished-her rocker was delivered on Saturday and it is oh so comfortable!  I promise one of these days I will get pictures up.

I am so looking forward to the weekend and it's only Tuesday.  This weekend we are heading to my family's new ranch house in Doole, TX. They bought it back in May and finally finished the house, so the Mr and I are heading down there to move our furniture in our room.  The Mr is very excited about getting a little bow hunting in.  He wasn't very lucky opening weekend with his bow, so he's hoping this weekend is better.  I'm looking forward to getting out of the city for a little while and hang out with my family.  Some of our best memories are being at the ranch together.  Emma has ruined our hunting season, well that's what the men of the family say.  Since both of our ranches are so far from civilization we will only be going out there twice this deer season, because knowing my luck, I'd go into labor in the deer stand.  Needless to say Matt and I both are hoping to kill something each time we go, so we have enough venison to last us until next year. Here are a few of our favorite ranch pictures....

And last but not least, my best friend since 6th grade will be celebrating her 27th birthday this weekend! I cannot say enough about her-we have been through so much together, and sometimes I wonder how we lived through it all! :)  Abby, you are the greatest friend anyone could ever ask for!  Thanks for all of the fabulous memories thus far!  I hope you have a fabulous birthday!
