Homemade and Homegrown Breakfast

So I can finally say that we had an entire meal of homemade and homegrown goodness!!!

Fresh Eggs:

Can't beat free range fresh eggs!

New Potatoes:

Yesterday when I got home from my trip to College Station I made my usual rounds to water plants and chickens.  

Something had gotten a hold of my potato plants, they were wilted and not healthy looking at all.  

So I started pulling the dying plants up and found these beauties.  

Luckily there are still plenty of plants to produce more of these delicious spuds!

I saw this recipe on my favorite blogger's website. The Pioneer Woman, if you haven't been here you must!

They were YUMMY!

Biscuits from scratch: 

I may have a slight addiction to the Food Network but it produces such good food and info.  

These are my sourdough biscuits but I added a stick of shredded frozen butter to the flour before I added my wet ingredients.  

Then I only mixed everything together for a split second until it started to form a ball of dough. 

Then I plopped the dough out on my floured cutting board and started rolling and folding.  

I saw this butter,  roll and fold technique on an episode of Diners, Drive In's and Dives Friday so I had to give them a try.  

Man were they ever flaky and tasty! We all know butter makes everything better!

Venison Breakfast Sausage:

During Christmas my parents, Sam and myself butchered and processed 3 Axis Deer and 2 Whitetail into to hamburger, chili meat, roast, steaks, and breakfast sausage.

The sausage I fixed today is one of my father's recipes.  It is brown sugar sweet with a good kick of red pepper flakes.

We made several different batches of breakfast sausage, we would mix one batch cook a little and add another ingredient.

It was a lot of fun and the end results are finger licking good.

After I cooked all this I was so excited to eat it that I totally forgot to take a picture of my plate.  But let me just say it was pretty and delicious!!!
