I am eating a deerburger. Yep, ground Bambi.

That is all.
OMNOMNOM venison. I had a stir-fry consisting mainly of carrots and rice.

Bambiburgers! I love those!!! Especially with sauteed onions and mushrooms in a red wine reduction...

The first time I had venison I thought I had tasted the most delicious food in my life.

I've eaten Bambi before. and gator and buffalo, and frog, too. Lots of God's creatures taste delicious.

Mmmm, tasty adorable creatures.

I had duck last night. I was going to order the salad, but my mother first put on a display of mock shock ("Salad?!? But they have duck!") and then applied the persuasive tactics ("But you can have salad at home! I'm having the [*] --- keep me company!")

And I was all, "Oh, if I must, NOM NOM NOM."

And over dinner we talked briefly about snails and frog's legs and snake and gator and all the "exotic meats" I used to order when I was a child, which is rich considering that otherwise, I was the world's pickiest eater.

And we talked about how hard it is to get snails at any of the restaurants in our disproportionately restaurant-heavy town.

*I dunno, something rich and expensive: lobster-stuffed gold brick or some such.

Mmmm, venison. I haven't had the opportunity to have it often, but I do enjoy it when I do.

I love duck. I've come across a great duck recipe that I've made a couple of times. Hmm. Maybe I'll make it again this week!

My favorite thing to do with venison is make spicy breakfast sausage - plenty of sage and pepper flakes. It's so lean and flavorful - man, is that good.

Down in Sarasota I had an alligator sammich a couple of times. A little chewy-like chicken flavored clam strips. But it was good.

mmm venison indeed. I lived by a deer farm in NZ - we ate it often.

My first wife came from a Pennsylvania redneck farming family so we usually got a lot of venison after hunting season. It makes really good chili, especially with black beans. I haven't had any since then, I'd like to find a good source.

Several years ago, I was at a big, raucous house party in the inner suburbs. I wandered down to the basement, where the host's roommate was grinding venison sausage at midnight. Bizarre scene, that--the sounds of music and dancing upstairs, occassional bursts of laughter, and Jay at the sausage grinder in the basement. I did get his leftovers, and they were packed with Bambi goodness.

I haven't had venison (don't know if I could) but have had Elk. Didn't like it at all - weird flavour (gamey?) and texture.

Makes an awesome meat sauce for spaghetti, too. Especially with some crumbled pork sausage in it -- it's so lean it needs some additional fat to bring it all together.
