That does stink. I think at 4, that’s the first birthday they actually remember. Tell her she can plan an unbirthday party for when this is over! Make it as silly as possible, with uncake, unpresents, etc.
I’ve been seeing some businesses in my area doing “Zoom Birthday Parties” - I know it’s not the same, and I’m sure cost wise it’s probably stupid [or hey, maybe not] but I could see some things at least making things fun. I think the last thing I saw was a Zumba studio doing a dance party.

Sadly, all the hunters I know donate their kills to local food banks, so I have to buy venison like a sucker. I suppose I could learn to hunt myself (phrasing), just add it to the list of all the other things I need to learn.
Always appreciate a good venison recipe! I agree that you can’t just treat it like beef, but I find it odd that people assume that you could/should. With lamb or goat we wouldn’t treat it the same as beef and we wouldn’t expect it to have the same flavor. Venison and other wild game deserve the same level of… Read more
