Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Venison (or Beef) and Squash Casserole.

This casserole, cooked in a slow cooker, is very healthy due to the squash and venison.  No venison on hand?  Get a lean ground beef.

  2 1/4 Tsp dried thyme                               3/4 Lb Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into 1 inch pieces
  2 Tsp kosher salt                                      14.5 Ounce Diced Tomatoes, Undrained                  
  3/4 Tsp ground black pepper                     14.5 Ounce Diced Tomatoes, Drained
  5 Tbl cornstarch                                       1 Small small butternut squash,               
  1 1/2 Lb Venison, Ground                          1 Tsp olive oil               
  1 Stalk Celery, Sliced                                                               
  1/2 Tsp Anise Seed                                                                  

Combine thyme, salt, and pepper.  Set aside 1 teaspoon of the mixture and stir cornstarch into the remainder. Toss the Venison, celery, anise and potato in the cornstarch mixture and place in a 6-quart slow cooker, pressing down.  Top with tomatoes.  Peel, seed and slice the squash into 1/8 inch pieces.  Toss squash with oil and remaining thyme mixture. Arrange the squash on top of the tomatoes, making two layers.  Cover and cook 4  hours on high or 8 hours on low
