With SWMBO dieting, and adamantly refusing to eat Bambi, I have been largely left to my own devices for dinner. I've been happily munching my way through 1/3 of an elk and 2/3 of a good-sized whitetail for over a year. Thawing frozen packages of meat takes all day, especially in thin winter sunshine. Just this week I happened to put a package of deer steaks in a black frying pan, and it thawed in three hours. I guessed the black pan absorbed more sun heat than a white plate, so tried again with a two lb. package of deerburger. Same thing!
