News on Sunday

The men of the house are planning and scheming.  They have a hunting trip planned for this fall, out west.  Maps are being perused, routes are being planned, and equipment is being purchased.  




They will be driving out west, hiking into their assigned area, and setting up camp.  This makes me a little bit nervous, but they are excited about their upcoming adventure.  Not to be outdone, the ladies of the house, (me and the girl), will be taking our own adventurous trip next spring.  More details will be upcoming.  




We have a plethora of pears.  We use some ourselves, some go to the deer feed plot, and then we have an opossum visiting each night to eat the fallen pears.  


I came home from the grocery with a new box of dog biscuits.  After I passed them out, I found my Jack Russell behind our recliner with her biscuit.  Not where she usually sleeps, so I am guessing she was hiding....and protecting her treat.   





This is on the menu for tonight and making the house smell great.  This has been the music for the weekend, and even the husband enjoyed it.  


Make today a good one, won't you?

  1. Where out west are the guys going on their hunting trip? You're a good woman to have that roast in the oven for dinner. I bet it smells great! Where might you two girls go on your special trip? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. My husband hunts every year. Deer and turkey. It is, hands down, his favorite thing to do in his life.

  9. I never have to worry about my doxies hiding their treats...they gobble them up as soon as I pass them out! I do remember our dearly departed Hunter doing this though...he was a JR mix. My son has gone out to Wyoming a couple of different times on one of these hunting escapades. It was totally led by a guide and was with a group of about 5-6 friends. He was in hunter's heaven...I am sure they will have the time of their lives! Your pears look amazing too. :)

  15. I hope the guys have a good and safe trip...can't wait to hear what you girls are doing. That recipe sounds delicious...but then anything with onions is good.

    I don't know if you have ever tried this, but we take Italian bread, if you can get it...fresh baked. (Not the frozen stuff, though some of that might be good.) Or a good homemade hoagie bun if Italian bread is not available. If we are eating it with spaghetti, we slice it about half an inch thick, butter on both sides and sprinkle with garlic salt, and fry on both sides till browned. For a snack, use an electric knife and slice as thing as you can...the best we could ever do was between an eighth and a quarter inch and do the same with butter and garlic salt. It is delicious.
