Dry Rub Goose Poppers

Got a goose lurking in your freezer?  Or three? Try these dry rub goose poppers? I know they’re not our favorite to eat.  But they are fun to hunt. Fun to watch them circle a field, the oldest old goose craning her neck like an upside down periscope to check out the safety of the […]

Dijon Balsamic Vinegar Marinade for Kabobs

Warm days, then WHOP!!  Hot day. Take the hubs out or plant your garden in mid-May and you’re just asking for […]
