Is LJ stable yet? Just in case it's not, I'm going to try crossposting this. (I'm also on DW so feel free to friend me or circle me or what the fuck ever over there, and I will do you back).

I wanted to thank [personal profile] spike7451 and Demicus for the lovely e-cards! And [personal profile] felaine and [personal profile] amethyst_hunter and [personal profile] isisanubis for the Christmas cards! Isis, yours was so *sparkly* I keep staring at it, haha. And [personal profile] amethyst_hunter , yours really made me laugh. :) Oh, and thank you to [personal profile] fairyniamh , [personal profile] carolinelamb  and darkladyvamp for the yummy cookies! :D

I got something unexpected for Christmas; just as I was leaving the family gathering my father shouted for me (I was standing about a foot away, but he thought I'd left and panicked) and then followed me outside so he could cram a two-foot sausage in my trunk, ha ha. Actually, he gave me about six pounds of ground elk, and then, like I said, this massive summer sausage. Which I accidentally left in my trunk until the next day--I must have overlooked it when I was taking stuff out. On the plus side, it was fucking freezing out, so my sausage remained an ice block the entire time. The ground elk though--I don't know what to do with it all. Any recipes? Ground beef recipes I could substitute elk into? Keeping in mind I'm trying to be healthy.

Anyway, I don't know exactly how big that sausage is, but it's BIG. Here is a picture of it passing inspection:

Heifer seems dubious, doesn't he?

Anyway! I'm still alive, just suffering massive allergies these days. Expect a couple more posts from me about Yuletide and year end stuff. :)

Elk, like bison, is less fatty than beef. I had a friend who used to make pasties with elk meat because she could use veg and the gravy finish to keep them from being too dry. Boy, I just remembered those. Yum.
