Default Taking a break from it.

I have a bunch of Saturns.

Consequently - I work on a bunch of Satu rns.


Except from mid November till sometime in the spring.


November 15 is deer firearm season opening day. So I am usually hunting (got 4 this year) or butchering deer (my 4 and my SO's one and sister's one) and filling the freezer. After the first of the year I generally am busy with some project - and getting ready for maple syrup season. This year the project is a new syurp arch (what you use to boil it). This year I'm doing a redesign and supercharging it.

If a car breaks down - we'll just have to drive a different car....


...

Sounds like fun actually.
You can have all our deer if you like, be my guest.
They are nothing but four-legged rodents and road hazards as far as we are concerned.
We hit one a few years ago and have had many, many near-misses since then.
The best deer is one slow-cooked with a dry rub IMHO (yum).

My favorite is backstraps oven baked in a covered glass dish in sweet red wine, garlic, onion and black pepoer. 3-4 hours at 350f.

Cut with fork.

Default Re: Taking a break from it.

We are in the midst of a weekend heat wave here in Connecticut. Temps in the mid sixties instead of in the 30s. I changed the oil in my Saturn and 07 Pacifica. Tried to start installing lower control arms but a little grease fitting hole defect in the new part slowed me down to the point I had to stop and clean up. -Looks like this’ll have to wait.

I will be sensitive to your dilemma and keep an award winning Chocolate Eclair Cake recipe and a favorite Cheesecake recipe to myself and refuse to share how my father would cook deer meat.

Keeping in harmony with this forum's topic, I will let you know that both deserts have been transported by my '98 Saturn often for family gatherings.

If it wasn't for a good portion of salmon steak and asparagus just a few minutes ago, the open invite is still torture.......spending hours to drive from NYC to Michigan non stop.

Home made food seems to be the best food when the cook adds their personal touch to a recipe. If I could lie to my doctor I would in a heartbeat but she will see my sudden weight gain and blood pressure skyrocketing.......... Someone will always have a better meal as some of us must watch from afar.

A ski vacation in Colorado (Vail) two winters ago allowed me to try a buffalo steak on our last night as reward for not breaking an arm or a leg while skiing Vail four days. I have short term memory loss (mostly selective) but it had to be delicious since I don't remember anything negative about it. That means the next time I'm out west for big mountain skiing, I'll have to refresh my faltering memory and try it again. High cholesterol or not.

LOL!

OK, one more thing and I will stop.
A few years ago I had bear ribs at my brother-in-law's cabin in northern Minnesota.
I helped dress it after he bagged it (with a long bow no less).
They were slow cooked for about eight hours, smothered in barbeque sauce.
A tiny bit gamy, but otherwise delicious and like onlinebiker said- Cut with a fork.
Oh, and we drove the 97' SC2 all the way to Minnesota that trip (to stay on topic).

Speaking of personal recipes-
My wife and I do a chicken salad that is easy to make and utterly delicious.
It is a meal in itself that we do at least once a week.
We had it for dinner last night in fact.

Now I'm getting hungry........

lol, first-world problems.

I don't have nearly as many saturns, so if mine breaks down, I scavenge the others for parts. That's why my poor '97 has a defective MAP sensor and is missing the passenger side axle.
