Tonight's dinner was back to the CSA box.  We had venison stir fry (the venison is from a friend - thanks!).  We used the same stir fry recipe from last week, with the venison, stir fry greens, julienned carrots, and bean sprouts.  We had the stir fry over brown rice (the pre-cooked kind from… MORE
