Pretty straightforward dish this time around. For the sweet potato puree we baked two taters at 400 for 90 minutes. Meanwhile, She brought 1/2 c. of milk to a simmer with some brown sugar, chipotle puree, and -my favorite- rendered pancetta fat! Holy lord that puree was awesome - and all the work of She.

As for the venison loin, I simply crusted it with a blend of freshly ground coffee beans, cumin, and a skoch of brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. From there, I just put put a quick sear on that while whipping up a simple Cab Demi Sauce with a little rosemary, balsamic, and garlic - just enough to round out the sauce.
Oh yeah, and then there was the Pantry Upside-Down Cake - ahhh yes!
