ThanksGiving Round 2 (posted a couple weeks later)

We had Thanksgiving dinner at Tony's Aunt and Uncle's house yesterday. There we about 22 of us in all. It was a good time, and we came home with some leftover pie, but no turkey or sides.

Instead we decided to go pick up our own turkey today (on sale) and made our own feast.
Turkey, stuffing, brussel sprouts, squash, garlic potatoes, and cranberry sauce. It was pretty good, but the turkey popup thing went off an hour early, which in turn made me end up rushing to do the sides, only to find out that in fact the turkey was not done. We had to put it back in the oven. At some point grease spalshed in the oven and started filling our house with smoke. Oh, and I forgot to saute the garlic and onions for the stuffing before I cooked it, so it came out pretty bad. Anyways, we tried.......

Bumper Meat?!?!

Tony has been out hunting a few times this season with no luck. He did however stumble upon what he calls "bumper meat". Yes, thats right, I am married to a hillbilly. One who picks up road kill ("it was still warm!") off the side of the road and brings it home to butcher. Well, not our home, cause I wouldn't let him do it here. Regardless we now have lots of venison in the freezer. As long as I don't think about what I am eating, it is actually very good. Its also going to save us some money this winter on our grocery bills. Dinner tonight was venison stew.

Waiting to Hibernate

I've been super sleepy for the past week. Think it has to do with working so much. My last few afternoons have been spent laying on the couch being lazy or napping. Luckily there is no school tomorrow so I can sleep in.

We had wood delivered last week. Now all we have to do it get it all stacked before the snow flies. Its a lot of wood to stack............

New Ride

Okay, okay......
A real post will come soon. I've been busy between weekends in connecticut and working nonstop to help make up for the loss of income from Tony being layed off last week (the good time keep coming!) I haven't gotten around to my poor old blog.
In the meantime, one good thing going on right now is my new car. It an 03 Honda CRV and I love it. Finally a reliable vehicle.
Monkey likes it too.
