On to our regularly scheduled program…
some random photos, some hilarity, some conversation, and some cookin’
Saturday evening, before the hurricane hit West Michigan, the TexasNorth Mulders attended Abbi’s ballet recital. Curt watched from the seats while Rylie (aka: Crazy Horse that evening) and I quickly found ourselves banished to the hallway watching through the rectangular glass on the doors. She simply could not contain herself amongst the costumes, the music, the dancing. Peanut worked her way onto my shoulders and began a game of peek-a-boo… leaning way over and looking into my eyes upside down. With lightening speed, she then stuck her finger so far up my nose that it started to bleed. And that’s why we missed Abbi’s scene. Thank you for understanding.
Boy says: Ya know, Girl, I saw this goo in the skillet tonight and pasta in the pot and I was all like, Eh… boooooring. But, man… this is GOOD!
Girl gives Boy a sideways glance and wonders how in the world she ever fell in love with someone who doesn’t dig pasta or dream about stroganoff… I’m sorry, goo.
Girl studies Boy a moment and remembers that he is extrememly hot.
1# ground venison or beef
2 white onions, chopped
1 cup sliced mushrooms (if it won’t cause an extra session of marital counseling)
3-5 T butter
2 cups of beef broth
3 T tomato paste
2/3 sour cream
pasta of choice
Start your pasta water. Salt and pepper your meat. In a large skillet, saute mushrooms and onions in the garlic and butter until tender. Add meat and continue until meat is browned. Remove from skillet and set aside. Add beef broth and tomato paste to skillet. Stir to make gravy, adding a little flour if necessary to thicken. Add meat mixture back to skillet and simmer until your pasta in finished. Add sour cream in just before serving… or heavy cream if, like me, you happened to be out.
Happy weekend, Friends. We love you here at TexasNorth! We reeeeeeeally do.
