It’s been a long weekend here, extending into tomorrow. We’re going to brave the possible nature congestion and take the family to a state park, maybe hike a little, stop at a drive-in and play some mini golf. So, if you’re headed to that same state park, I’ll be there with a pack full of […]

It’s going to be a long week waiting for the holiday weekend that’s coming. Like waiting for water to boil, watching it will make it seem longer, and I don’t know that I can help myself from counting the seconds. This weekend went by altogether too quickly, and I’m anxious to get a new one […]

I’m looking to get back into a routine with meals this week. Last week was anything but routine; therefore, the “menu” was revised slightly drastically.

Ole’s gone this week until Thursday at a conference for work, so I’ll be utilizing a few make-ahead meals that I’ve been stockpiling. Our local supermarket also has a great deal on grillables (read: steak, steak and more steak in the form of a whole beef tenderloin). So, right before he comes back, I’ll be […]

Easter’s over, and I’m still full. Hopefully some of the sugar wears off my kids by morning. We’re going to use our Easter spoils in two of our meals. Our freezer emptying from last week led to Ole smoking a brisket this weekend. We also had a holdover from last week. Costco was out of […]
