This is a harty stew like pie, with carrots, potatos, rutabaga, celery, peas, beans and beans.
First pic is venison browned in caramalized onions and fresh garlic

My semi-dyslectic brain read this first as "vegetarian ragu" and I thought WAAAAA?????????

Butt serially, I think that this stretches the definition of "ragu". Not to be dogmatic or pedantic or anything..........

Not sure about stretching the definition, but it sure as heck stretched the old belt line! It was really good!

That looks great! I like the idea of a sweet pastry on top. Did you make the gravy from the pan drippings?

All you need now is a big glass of red wine...

Yes the gravy is from pan drippings, and a nice glass of merlot chased it down! :D

Temps here this week are right around freezing, about 25 to 38 F depending on time of day.
