Deer and Apple Sausage with Salad and Sweet Potato Fries


If this is what happens when we haven't done groceries, well, I think I may have to stop shopping for a while.

When I left my friend Zoya's this weekend, she sent me home with 2 deer and apple sausages. Yumm! On Thursday last week, Marysol left me some delicious micro greens from Bryson Farms, something I'm now addicted to (it's made it in pretty much every salad, sandwich and soup since). A stop in at Les Folies Bergères on our way home from Tremblant left us with a smooth and creamy coulée douce de pur brebis as a plate garnish. And of course some sweet potato fries.

Everything on my plate was magical. The distinct, moist texture of the deer meat covered in fried onions, the earthy taste of micro greens mixed with mâche and drizzled in balsamic. And to top it off, we ate dinner outside. The perfect evening if I do say so myself. Thanks to all who made this dinner possible and for all your lovely gifts. As for Les Folies Bergères, if you haven't gone, it's an experience in itself to just speak with such passionate people on what they do best – making heavenly cheeses. We got to try just about every kind and left not only with some cheese, but also some meat!

How do you make your sweet potato fries?

When my husband makes them he cuts the sweet potatoes into thin strips and puts them in the oven sprinkled with olive oil, salt and pepper. However, on many occasions, including this one, we buy the Rideau Farms sweet potato fries from Giant Tiger. They're perfect to have in the freezer and are REALLY good!
