Back in October, when I did the Eat Local Challenge, I made one of my favorite meals, open-faced roast beef sandwiches. Well, open-faced roast venison sandwiches. They remind me of when I was little. It was one of my favorite recipes of my mom’s. Mostly, I don’t think it was the recipe, but how she placed them on the plate, just perfect. Last week, after making a deer roast in the crockpot for venison stroganoff (which was beyond fabulous, by the way, but not quite local enough for a dark days submission as I used store-bought egg noodles and regular sour cream) I had some leftover deer roast. Just enough for two sandwiches. And, I had some frozen hamburger buns that aren’t really good for making anything except these sandwiches, since freezing the buns gives them a weird texture. Voila! Quick comfort food.
