Christmas Is Upon Us

Christmas really is the best time of year. There’s nothing better than celebrating the birth of our Saviour.

Thanksgiving was great. Quentin worked until 3:30, so me and my kids had all day to prepare dinner. Anyone else work retail? You just learn to roll with it. 🙂

Quentin has harvested 7 deer already. We are enjoying the meat for sure. Our venison favorites have been corned venison and a new venison summer sausage recipe. I will be back to share more about what we do with all that meat!

There have been some really cold nights already, and we even woke to ice coming down yesterday morning. We used it as an excuse to skip church and curled up on the couch together to listen to A Christmas Carol audio book.

We got a Great Pyrenees puppy back in October. He’s not only the most beautiful dog I’ve ever seen, but he’s gentle and calm and makes our days a little brighter. Yep, I love that crazy puppy. 🙂

Our garden is still producing! I am picking lettuce, kale, and radishes. We are also starting to get eggs! I think about half of our chickens have started laying. We had to start all over mid May after a predator wiped out our entire flock. We currently have 6 Americaunas and 6 Buff Brahmas.

I am going to share some pictures from the last little bit but will be back more often to share with you some of our Christmas season.

And in case you’re interested and have missed seeing my menu, this week we’re having:

Spaghetti & Meatballs, Baked Potatoes, & Broccoli & Cheese

Hamburger Steaks, Oven Fries with Fry Sauce

BBQ Sandwiches, Baked Beans, & Peas

Stroganoff & Mashed Potatoes

Take care and check back soon!



I almost forgot, Stormy is a first-time mommy!

Venison meatballs with our homemade apple BBQ sauce.


Today’s lunch straight from the yard. Kale, radishes, and eggs. Dessert was leftover apples from last night that had been frozen from our trees. So good!
