A Week-end Of Food, Nothing Fancy!



Since we had pizza Thursday, a simple scrambled egg, ham , mushroom, and cheese concoction sounded about right.. too messy to call an omelette! Saturday was even simpler- toasted cheese sammiches on rye- good cheddar though.. Sat. night I took the last of my venison, ground it- along with three pork steaks, to make either meatloaf or meatballs for Sunday.. Seasoned the night before eating, but added oatmeal and egg as a binder Sunday morning, it became meatloaf! Venison can be a bit stronger than beef, but is dead lean! Texture was firm and good- flavor was pronounced, nothing a little catsup and mustard couldn't cure! Had egg noodles on the side- we're kind of potato and riced out around here...
I'll probably make some treat later today, as I have all afternoon- wife went to a play!

Can't wait to hear what you came up with later! :)

Chef E said...

Sounds good to me...no cooking here for now, just tuna fish on lettuce salad, and banana peppers! I have been too tired to cook the past few days, I am kind of glad we are going out to dinner Monday, then again a rest day...

Chef E said...

Oh, duh, I bet your venison-sausage is orgasmic...at least I think so!

buffalodick said...

Ake- Just something a little sweet..
Chef- Haven't felt much like cooking either!

doggybloggy said...

I could go for some of that meatloaf on toast with a slice of tomato....

CDB said...

You ground your own venison? You could have a regular cooking shows out there, huh?

Thanks for the tips on the meatloaf.. I have never heard of adding oatmeal (though, my husband was once making meatballs and added steel-cut oats mistakenly thinking they were breadcrumbs. He was probably trying to watch sports at the same time.)

buffalodick said...

DogB- Meatloaf was tasty and firm- but flavor was indeed stronger than I would have liked!
CDB- Truth be told, I was out of bread crumbs, and oatmeal works fine as a filler/binder...

K said...

I love scrambled eggs with stuff thrown in - simple, but wonderful.

Kate said...

I have a thing with texture. I want to try it, but if it doesn't have a good mouth feel, I can't get into it. It's a horrible thing.

Belle said...

I bought some fresh pork mince and steak mince this weekend. I made the kids hamburgers - mince, worcester sauce, american mustard and herbs. I made a meatloaf with half the pork and half the steak mince and also make some baby meatballs with the steak mince. The kids love them.

Jeanne said...

I always use oatmeal in my meatloaf -- and I make a killer meatloaf!

G-Man said...

Ya know...I've been dyan for a good grilled cheese. Served with a side of Campbell's Tomato soup.
Have a Great Week Buff....G

buffalodick said...

K- I've been practicing with a griddle instead of my omelette pan.. oops!
Kate- Texure matings and blends make a big difference!
Belle- ground meat can be very versitile! I ground my own, because I was out!
Jeanne- It certainly works!
G-man- When you don't know what you want- have a grilled cheese sandwich!

Bina said...

That sounds really, really good. I LOVE meat loaf! But I'm assuming you have a meat grinder, huh? Must be nice, mister!

buffalodick said...

Bina- Kitchen-Aid Mixer has attachment- works great!

Mona said...

My weekend was great too. I went 'sightseeing' at malls and had an eyeful of cartiers and versace and burberry etc. Got some designer shoes and some unmentionables and some beauty products and perfumes.

buffalodick said...

Mona- You even saying unmentionables is pretty exciting! Hope you're having some fun time during a tough time...

starbender said...

venison is okay. I like it in chili, but right now I could go for a thick, melt in your mouth Prime Rib, with lobster on the side. Damn, now I'm hungry!

Sbender- Who the heck wouldn't? I would kill a beloved family member for lobster...

MarmiteToasty said...

I wish I lived near you :) I would invite myself over for supper LMFAO..... well, you would have to lay off the pork though... lol

Heff said...

I've still got me a good 50+ lbs of deer meat in the deepfreeze. Venison burgers all summer !

Scarlet said...

Oatmeal and deer meat, huh? I've yet to try venison and I'd probably prefer it mixed with beef in meatloaf for starters (since you say it has a strong taste). A nice glass (or two) of red would help.

I'm curious about your afternoon treat. What'd you make??

Beth said...

I could go for some of them eggs! YUM! the meatloaf you can keep! ;)

Helene (the Artist Formerly Known as Kate) said...

even your nothing fancy looks fab!

Kate said...

Grilled cheese..... Ummmm.....

buffalodick said...

Marmy- Pork has been such a bargain here, and it is flexible.. I know- you are allergic!
Heff- Lucky guy!
Scarlet- mixes well with beef- but it is super lean, so go with a high fat content of beef-80/20 works.. Skipped the treat until Monday- then had three bananas ripe enough for bread!
Beth- I like eggs too!
Helene- Thanks! Sometimes I run out of ideas..
Kate- Comfort food at it's simplest!

TavoLini said...

Potatoed out? No way!! :)

Looks good, comfort and taste!

buffalodick said...

I think I'm going to attempt a potato kugel soon!

miss amy said...

yummmmm...you are making me hungry!
