    Potato and Leek soup.
    or
    Autumn stew
    It ain't about the # of pounds of meat we bring back, nor about how much we spent to go do it. Its about seeing what no one else sees.

    How about a nice greasy, messy moose burger hot off the grill on top of hot sourdough bread fresh from the oven. Top with a bit of cheese and a few slices of homemade green tomato pickles from last years garden...and oh yes, forget the store bought ketchup go with a spoonful of highbush cranberry meat sauce. For a side dish boil up some of those spuds that you harvested from the garden.

    OK add a homebrew beer or two and there you go!

    Sounds good to me.

    Moose season starts here in 7 days and counting down.
    I have been enjoying all the varieties of the fish we have caught this summer...
    but meat sounds sooooo good right about now.

    Three Bears has these chocolate covered coffee beans that are
    so wonderful. My cousin had a gallon bag of 'em when I moved to
    Alaska this past Febuary. We ran out a few months ago and now
    I'm wanting to stock up on 'em for this coming winter! (These are just
    as good if not better than peanut M&Ms!)

    It is as greasy, messy and juicy as you want it... All depends on how much of that glorious white kidney fat you grind up with the meat.

    I couldn't imagine wasing a fine winter day just sitting in front of a fire. Snowshoeing, cross country skiing, small game hunting, it's a shame not to go out and enjoy such activities.

    But I'd say at the end of a fine winter day, with your cheeks tingling from the cold, few things warm you up better than a hot buttered rum. Don't need any fancy mix, just 1T brown sugar, dash of cinamon, bit of cloves, pinch of ginger, a pad of butter and 1 or 2 shots of captain morgans rum, filled to the top with boiling water. A close second is mexican hot chocolate with some Kahlua.

    Winter is definately the time of year for hearty stews and soups. Snowshoe hare makes for a fine stew. Tough to top a french onion soup, especially if you bake it to melt that thick layer of cheese on top of the bowl.
