From some random source I cant remember:
Crockpot Venison Apple Cider Stew
1 pound beef or venison stew meat -- (up to 2) 8 carrots -- sliced thin 6 potatoes -- sliced thin 2 apples -- chopped 2 teaspoons salt 1/2 teaspoon thyme 2 tablespoons minced onion 2 cups apple cider (I used spiced cider)
Place carrots, potatoes, and apples in crock pot. Add meat and sprinkle with salt, thyme, and onion. Pour cider over meat and cover. Cook in crock pot on low heat 10-12 hours. Thicken gravy.
And not to forget about my painting, I sat down and flipped a little paint to paper to come up with this version of the "Egg Sucking Prince Nymph". I saw it in a recent edition of Fly Tyer magazine and figured what the heck. I would love to tie this up but searching my supplies I found no hot orange beads. I guess that is mainly due to my ignorant reluctance to use egg patterns for fishing. I am beginning to loose this 'high minded' attitude but I guess this fly still will have to wait till my next trip to the fly shop.
