Well, it is that time of year again. The time of year that men go crazy with an illness called, "Buck Fever". If you've never experienced this disease, it can be deadly.
Especially if the men don't come home with an antlered deer.
Last year, my Mister decided that he couldn't live without his beloved and took me along. (I don't know who this "beloved" character is, but I think her plans for a romantic get-away were thwarted by freezing temperatures and layers upon layers of long-john's.) I ended up being the camp cook. And camp photographer. And morning fire-builder.
That last one is only because my behind froze to the camper bed and I needed to thaw quickly before any permanent damage was done.
But I'm not complaining. My Mister took me to my own personal Shangri-la. A place where I can enjoy the beauty that is creation without the hustle and bustle of real life.
If you don't hear from me again, it's because I ain't comin' back.
Unless of course, I'm caught. And forcibly brought back to reality.
Since hunting season officially begins on Saturday, we'll be heading out mid-week. If you're a criminal hoping to score big at an empty farm, think again. The house is full of angry people and we're not taking all of the guns.
You've been warned.
Here's what's cookin' for the first part of the week...
This is what happens when your daughter turns 17 and has a bunch of giggling teenage girls over. And since it's a birthday celebration, it's all calorie-free. Honest.
Venison Stir-fry (with broccoli, ginger, snow peas, mushrooms, water chestnuts, and a stir-fry sauce that I have to make-up as I go!)
Potato Corn Chowder, green salad
Chicken Marsala (Seeds of Change sauce), brown rice, steamed broccoli
But just in case, I'll have a back-up plan of chili, stew, chowder, and hamburgers...but only if we need it boys! ☺
