Venison for breakfast

I had my first taste of venison this morning for breakfast over at Beau and Blake's. Beau said this particular sausage came from "Ashley's first deer" --something I didn't want to think about too much! That does mean it's fresh and homemade. I liked it... it has a slightly lamb-y taste, but the texture of beef. The spices gave it some kick, but didn't take over and Beau squeezed most of the oil out of patties while he was cooking them, making them nice and lean with a crunchy outside.

I brought banana pancakes, made from scratch, of course. Personal triumph: Got Blake --the boy who only likes macaroni in tomato juice-- to eat them :-)
