  • Jana says:

    How do you do your venison roast? Does it come out tender?

    • Brigette Shevy says:

      I use the crockpot and just dump ingredients in and let it cook for 6-8hrs on low. And YES! It comes out tender! I always add several tablespoons of fat (butter or olive oil), several tablespoons of soy sauce or bragg’s liquid aminos, garlic, a little water, a squirt of Dijon mustard, and any other seasonings I feel inspired to throw in. Sounds kind of weird, but it tastes really great, and not “venison-y” at all!

  • Sweet! Hope you enjoy the Creamy Chicken and Rice Casserole!

  • Joanne Peterson says:

    The chicken and rice stovetop casserole is similar to mine, and we really like it, but I add frozen peas that I’ve thawed into the casserole, and more herbs. Sometimes I add leftover cooked broccoli to the carrots instead. If I want something a little more exotic, I add canned coconut milk instead of the cream, and grated ginger, and fold in unsweetened toasted coconut flakes.

    • Brigette Shevy says:

      Oh yum – that sounds amazing! My husband and I LOVE Thai food, so I know we would really enjoy your variation. Thanks for sharing!

  • Ruth Daniels says:

    I am easily stressed weekly with healthy meal planning. Therefore I am really enjoying and learning from the posted weekly shopping trip and coordinating 7 day mostly healthy meal plans. We don’t have refrigeration and heating options for lunches 5 out of 7 days a week but all else is clearly & easily planned and organized. Thank you for sharing this weekly!!
