Since I’ve got a lot of wild friends, I figured I’d have wild game night. This is pretty big in Canada, though not so much Toronto specifically. There are a lot of people who go out West and live on the land, quite well actually. They sell a lot of what they catch back to butchers in the city. An elk or a moose is a huge amount of meet.
I was thinking of going mixed game, but I don’t know too much about the different types. I went to my favorite local butcher and he said he’s getting some good elk this season. I’ve heard that’s gamey kind of like venison but a little more robust like maybe buffalo. So that’s what we’ll do.
I bought some large elk steaks and marinated them heavily in a dark sauce with a rather heavy amount of Burgundy. I figured I’d serve Burgundy with the meal as well. Since elk is kind of manly, I also served Guinness. I sprung for a keg because Guinness just isn’t the same if it’s not draft.
I invited all the usual suspects, but this was kind of a guy’s meal so it was a sausage party. The steaks were huge but the guys loved them and we had no leftovers. The guys liked the burgundy too, but we all like Guinness and enjoyed that. I have to say for just a few guys we drank the better part of a keg!
Without the ladies, we decided to break out some cigars. Ted had a few Cuban Coronas and we played some poker too. Without the feminine distractions, I did pretty well, making enough to cover the evening’s cuisine.
My only regret was I went to bed alone tonight and played some online casino games, i’m happy that you can pay and betaal met ideal bij online casinos, but this was without Maya. Hopefully she thinks of me!
