I’ve come to the conclusion that everything that I enjoy doing revolves around the acquisition, preparation, and consumption of food. I like to hunt, fish, forage, garden, cook, and eat good food. You can’t purchase food of the same quality as that which is collected from nature’s plentiful bounty. I believe that after God created us, he placed us in a garden. That garden is the world around us, even if we have to know how to navigate a few pitfalls before we can determine what is best to eat. This blog is a collection of a few of my family and friends’ mischievous adventures along the way.
