Pheasant and Wild Mushroom Carbonara

Todays dinner with wild ingredients; one pheasant, some spagheti, a jar of carbonara sauce and about 750grams of blewits and horse mushrooms fed the whole family. We've got plenty more mushroons left to cook in the camp kitchen tomorrow as well 😋

A Typical Sunday Dinner in Pheasant Season

Roast pheasant for Sunday lunch was delicious.
I'm glad my children appreciate where their food come from and understand the work that goes into putting food on the table. Celophane wrapped, battery farmed chicken can't compete with this.

Mushroom Stroganoff

It's that time of year again, todays haul included Oysters, shaggy parasols a single wood blewit and a shaggy ink cap. I got enough to feed the whole family so we made a really simple stroganoff. 😋

Bambi pie

Venison, courgete, carrot and onion in a pie for dinner today. A delicious end to a long day teaching students about deer farming and safe firearms handling.

I hadn't found all that much black nightshade (also known as huckleberry) this year since moving to a new area but I've had my fill today, and I've got enough to make some chutney too
