  1. I'm reluctant to eat bear but I always try something once and this turned out fab. A friend had given us a small bear roast which I sliced very thin and browned first, then removed so I could carmelize the onions then everything back into the pot and it simmered a few hours due to busy schedules. My girls don't like mushrooms but they enjoyed the meat and sauce. My hubby and I loved it and so did my husband's co-workers.


I’m over the hill and heading down the back side at a rapid rate it seems, single, and retired now. My loves? Good friends, most of all. After that I guess it would be wildlife and photographing it. In fact, I love anything that deals with wild animals and the outdoors. Then comes playing with my dog and making a mess trying to cook in the kitchen or around the fire pit, grill or smoker while enjoying a good tumbler of whiskey (whisky).
