Its cold and I aint going out there

It is cold out side and we still have snow flurries. But the snow we got the other night is melting. The ground is still warm for this time of year I think. So naturally it is mud where the snow is gone. I did get a few pics today to let ya see some of the things I have been talking about.
First off is Luna and her new bed that she loves now. I figured by now she would have it dragged into the yard.

I'm sure she likes this better than the rug she chose before.
And here is what snow we had left when I finally got up this morning. OK so I was lazy and slept in.

We are still having those flurries as I type and the temps have dipped low enough that the thawed snow has turned to ice everywhere. So I may as well hibernate till later this week when it warms to above freezing. My hurty body don't need to get out and fall down and go boom.
Tonight for dinner I made some venison pot roast. I do it the quick way and it alas turns out nice and tender.
 So here are the instructions.

2 1/2 lb venison roast trimmed
1 cup celery chopped
1 cup onion chopped
1 teas salt
1/2 teas black pepper
1 quart whole tomatoes
1 small can tomato paste
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teas garlic

In pressure cooker place chopped onion and celery on bottom. Lay roast on top of onions. Mix remaining ingredients with 1 pint of water and pour over roast. Put on the lid and bring up to pressure for 25 to 30 minutes. After pressure drops remove the meat and use a stick blender to puree the sauce that is left. You may add some cornstarch to thicken as desired. Serve gravy over mashed taters and any side you like. A quick meal that is really good and tender.
Till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.

Stelly, do you have any leftovers? That meal sounds real good.

The pillow looks great and Luna is beautiful.

Love the pics. I know it must look prettier in person. I hope to see it someday. ~ 'Jenny'

I think you have an awesome view but I don't blame you for not going out there, it does look cold!

Thanks for sharing the deer roast recipe! I've never done one in the pressure canner but would like to.

Stay warm!

lol jenny the guys ate ALL of the 2 1/2 lb deer roast with sides. Dang they eat hearty. I sure hope you can get up this way in the near future. It would be so fun.
Di I use a pressure cooker a lot with deer, from stew to roast. It guarantees it tender and it really dont take long to get it done either. The 2 plus lb roast was great jus in 30 minutes. Saves a lot of time and energy.
