From honest-food.net

This is a dish I am adapting from that most famous of cookbooks from Ancient Rome: Apicius. The translation I am using oddly includes corn starch (!), which was not discovered until long after the discovery of the New World, so I am omitting it here.

This venison roast is typical of Roman meats: Sweet, salty, herby. Since this dish is essentially a roast with sauce, I’d serve it with polenta or mashed potatoes. Too New World for you? Then eat it with farro. Just substitute farro for rice in your favorite risotto recipe.

Ingredients:

2 pounds venison roast (as usual, elk, moose, caribou, etc will substitute. If you have no game available, use lamb.)
1 teaspoon rue, minced (If you can’t find rue, use rosemary, but it will not be the same.)
1 tablespoon lovage, minced (If you can’t find lovage, use celery leaves from the top of the stalks.)
1 tablespoon oregano, minced
1 tablespoon mint, minced
1 tablespoon, parsley, minced
2 cloves of garlic
1 minced medium white or yellow onion
1 teaspoon Thai fish sauce (the closest modern equivalent to garum)
1 teaspoon honey
1 cup sweet wine (I’d use angelica, but you could use white port or muscat)
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons flour
salt and pepper

Duck DecoysSometimes when I buy hunting gear I want the best.  That usually means a quality name brand that is known, rated well, and I know I can trust.  Other times, name brands just mean more money and that’s all.  I shop at Cabela’s a lot because of the selection and the brands.  But what’s my second favorite place to shop for hunting gear?  It’s a place where I know I will get a great deal and won’t spend very much.  It’s Walmart.

I have found some absolutely amazing deals on hunting supplies at WalMart.  After hunting season, I bought a treestand that normally sells for $179 for $49.  It was such a great deal I bought 2 of them.  Some of my favorite hunting t-shirts come from Walmart.

Here’s the deal.  Walmart has great prices every day.  The $179 treestand I bought is normally $99 there.  That’s a great deal to start with.  And then when they mark it down after the season… well that’s just a steal!  You can shop at Walmart online and you can see their deals, called “rollbacks”.  Shop by category, camo pattern or species you want to hunt.  They have a great selection at great prices.

Last night I got out my Cabela’s Big Game Hunter for the Wii and started playing it.  I started with some target practice.  It starts you out with easier targets and they get harder and harder.  You can shoot all kinds of geese and ducks and then it moves you to rabbits and deer before you start getting attacked by mountain lions and bear!  It’s very addictive and fun!

Finally, once I had the controls down and was confident about my shooting abilities, I moved on to the hunts.  Again… the first hunt is simple and walks you though all of the controls which it actually does a very nice job of.  Each hunt consists of hunting for several animals.  And then there are a dozen different hunts that get more and more difficult.

I’m don’t play video games very often.  I’d rather spend my time doing something a bit more useful.  But I will have to admit that Cabela’s Big Game Hunter is a surprisingly fun game and a bit addictive.  If you like hunting you’re going to like this game.  I had a great time playing it and highly recommend it.

Happy Hunting!
