One of the things that I have realized over the years is that I really like to cook and try new things. Tonight was no exception. I had a venison leg in my freezer (thanks to some hunting friends in Alingsås) and so I roasted that in the crock pot. Then I made garlic mash potatoes and to top it all off, I tried my hand at ratatouille. Yes, the ratatouille recipe from the Disney movie about the rat.
Amazingly enough it looked and tasted great. My eight year old (who hates vegetables) even came back for seconds! I would make it again for that reason alone. It wasn't that hard (because I have a machine that can cut the slices and then you just put it together. Not to mention it made from fresh vegetables and herbs that are really good for you. I have heard a lot of people give different ideas for how to eat it and even for breakfast with an egg on top...Sounds good to me.
|This was before it was cooked, sorry no pics of after...but it looked almost the same.|
To top it all off, I made a carrot cake in the double American layer style...after all it was a birthday party! (sorry no pic). So dinner was a success and really fun to make...win, win.
