trying new things

Elk. David went hunting and we have a lot of elk meat. It was processed and shipped from Colorado frozen. Ground elk, elk loin, elk roast, we have some of it all. I've never prepared or eaten elk.

For dinner tonight we had elk meat spaghetti sauce over zucchini noodles. How's that for healthy?

We have used zucchini "twirls" for pasta a couple of times prior to tonight with store bought sauces. Once combined with regular ground beef and the other as a simple marinara sauce.  Both were "ok," they were missing something. We went back to homemade sauce, did some tweaking of the zucchini prep and tonight's attempt was much better.

I was prepared not to like it, but I actually did. I can see the ground elk making delicious chili, more spaghetti sauce or vegetable "beef" soup.

Tonight's dinner was definitely a keeper.
