We've been experimenting with our wild turkey. We have several packages in the freezer since the blacksmith got two birds this season.
For this meal, I ground the turkey using the meat grinder attachment on my Kitchenaid mixer. I then browned it and added a package of taco seasoning. Oh My Gosh, were they good. No way could you tell it was wild game. As for the beans, they are my home canned pinto beans, thank you Judy for the recipe!
Later in the week, I ground another package for burgers. I added bread crumbs, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, onions, and salt and pepper. The blacksmith then grilled them and added some BBQ sauce.
They were excellent!
Today I tried Judy's recipe for Pork n' beans. Same link as above.
The taste was as good as Van Camp's. I ended up with 6 1/2 pints. Since I haven't opened a jar since they were canned, I can't give you a full review. I will say, they looked a little over cooked and dry. Perhaps, I should have added more broth as they cooked. Time will tell.
Sewing has been high on my priority list. I found this clothes pin bag pattern in a quilt magazine given to me by my friend Tom. I made 3 of these cute little bags. Do I have a real clothes line? No, but that won't stop me. Oh well, they will just look cute hanging in the laundry room. I bet Margie, that I gave the purple pansy one to, will find a use for it.
The first part of May, I won a give away from Dar, a fellow Missourian. Her generous package included a charm pack, a big spool of thread, a package of quilting needles, and some fat quarters. I immediately pulled out my charm pack book and found this pattern. It will make a great table cover come fall. I love the colors.
I've also been blogging over at O B Blacksmith.
