Quick Social Media Rant

Before we get to the Venison Kabobs I just have to say one thing. It seems like a day can’t go by without one social media network changing things for the better. Every time I think I have one figured out, poof.

Facebook makes it harder to see ‘pages’ feeds, google weren’t all timeline on me, Pinterest changed something (though, I can’t remember what, so it really must not have been that important) and Twitter gave us three more characters. Well, #%!…

I’m pretty sure our phones can flirt with people on Christian Farmer Mingle without us knowing it and my personal photos can be viewed by all on Picasa.

If you are still wandering the interwebs lost and alone, looking for more places to get up to date news about how I tried to get changed in a used porta-potty with a tick crawling dangerously close to the seat cover and a spider dangling near the exit handle and me pretty sure I was going to end up falling out, half-naked, in front of a hundred strangers screaming random obscenities at nature, make sure to check out all the links below the recipe and follow me.

No, let’s get on to the venison kabobs.

I know you’re here for the food. And these venison kabobs are going to make your day. I know my mouth is watering.

Why Eat Venison?

If you are lucky enough to know someone that provides you with venison, give them a big hug. Venison is the ultimate in lean red meat. Even cornfed deer have a much lower percentage of fat than cows do, so your meat will be super lean.

Selected for you :   Chicken, Bacon, and Cheddar Sandwiches

For some recipes this may not work as well, and you are going to have a hard time getting your venison burgers to hold their shape. But for anything where you are looking to have a lean tender piece of meat in the mix, venison is the perfect fit.

Venison Kabobs on the Grill

If you are going to make kabobs, and use some of your dear deer venison to do it, light up that grill. There is no better way to import a smokey outdoor flavor to your meat than live fire.

Grab some lump charcoal, and even some smoker chips if you really want to heap that flavor on. Grilling your venison is the way to go.

And no, I didn’t forget about those social links

“Break it down for me, Kita!” Sure thing, I am all about shameless self-promotion. 😉


If you want the daily post, pic of the recipe and link – follow me here. I occasionally post random stuff that I find amusing too (and maybe took the cat joke a little too far last Christmas), but it’s the most filtered and easy access to what’s happening. PS. This post from TidyMom is great if you are wondering why you no longer see all the pages you follow in your news feed (because facebook is trying to make us ‘pages’ pay for your attention…).


Unfiltered, unedited, inappropriate random thoughts and things I probably shouldn’t share on the internet if I am ‘building a brand’ (thank God I threw that dream out the window). Sometimes its comics, sometimes its biking, and if I remember, a daily link back to the site.


my inner girl, nerd, geek, dreamer, and fat kid all combine on pinterest. Everything from rocking high heels to bacon slathered in gravy. I have boards on office spaces, puppies, clothes, and barbecue. So, if you are looking for random crap to pin forward – follow me here. (I often wonder what my family thinks of my random pins).


the social network I am destined to share an adult rated photograph on some day. Not on purpose – never on purpose. But with all these darn buttons on my phone it’s bound to happen. Be gentle when it does.
