Breakfast: some say the most important meal of the day. Not many people would consider salad for breakfast, but how about this cereal salad? Not sure what to have, I decided on a little of everything in the pantry … Weet-Bix, Corn-Flakes, Granola and All-Bran, top with some honey (instead of sugar) and soy milk, because variety is the spice of life!
Big Breakfast or late brunch: how about scrambled eggs on hashbrown?
Lunch or dinner: fresh flat-head fillets in beer-batter with chips and salad! Oh, now I’m hungry 😛
If you’re offended by the sight of cooked meat, politely look away now …
Dinner: Venison thinly sliced, rubbed with Tasmanian native herbs then marinated in Bourbon for about an hour, before being smoked at 130 degrees C in a Webber BBQ. Served with salad and corn chips and Stubbs BBQ sauce. And a home-brew stout 😛
OK, you’ve been warned …
Deer are a big threat to Tasmania’s National Parks and World Heritage Areas – I personally have no problem eating venison, it tastes delicious and I think it should be as staple in every pub and restaurant to encourage reducing the feral population in a less wasteful manner than how they are currently managed.
Ironically, (or moronically), Fallow deer are recognised as a game resource and as such listed as ‘partly protected wildlife’ in Tasmania, despite estimates the current feral deer population in Tasmania at 100,000 and climbing!
Fellow Deer were first introduced into Tasmania in the 1830’s. They are a medium size deer which originated in Turkey and are herbivores that browse on grasses, herbs and shrubs. Fallow deer are often found in cleared or open grassy areas, open woodlands, forests and scattered timber farmland. They may be seen in mountainous areas through to cleared open farmland.
A growing pest problem, they can cause significant damage to native vegetation and ecologically fragile areas, and can spread weeds. Fallow deer can form large herds and their total grazing pressure can be significant. [Source]
