Mule Deer Taco Mac and Cheese Bake
Comfort food? Ahh yeahhh, gimme that comfort food. It's my favorite "category" if it should ever be considered one on its own. While usually I would post a harvest picture of the animal being used in the recipe, I don't have one because this mule deer was tagged by someone on one of my dad's elk hunts. Picture or not, this was dang delicious. And once again, family providing for family.
