"Hey, Wifey! Guess what I have in the trunk?!?!"
Clueless as to where he was going with this line of questioning I shake my head and say,
"I don't know?"
How does my DEAR husband answer?
"This guy who does some work for me said he hunted and has some DEER meat for me! Yeah! I got a LEG of a DEER! It's all wrapped up. He even told me how to drain the blood out of it but you'll have look up how to cook venison!"
Okay. I'm black and I did not grow up eating DEER meat. My Jamaican grandmother cooks some sweet lamb and goat but... DEER? I don't know nuthin' 'bout it! How does a wife who wants to encourage her husband respond?
"That is blog-worthy, William!"
Oh, I also said, "What?! Deer? I don't eat deer?" Look, I've grown much in homemaking but this will certain stretch me. Yes, many people eat deer but... I'm having a bit of a time with it. I struggle as it is getting my kids to eat chicken on the bone, hamburgers, and any meat that doesn't resemble chicken nuggets!
Now, to all you deer-eating folks out in cyberspace, got any suggestions? Oh, and let me know if you'd like to come over for dinner anytime soon. Sounds like we'll be having lots of meat!
So, to my Vanilla Shake, you crack me up! I don't know how this is gonna turn out but know that I'm doing some online searching to prepare a venison feast for you. That is after you "drain the blood from it" (whatever that means!). I love you and yo' crazy style!
