My Favorite Dill Pickle Recipe

Dill pickles are important stuff in this house. We go through a lot of them.

I realize now that all that time I spent complaining about the absolute on slot of cucumbers we had this summer was quite ridiculous. I should have been thanking my lucky stars.

Meal Plan 12.4.16

This is a meal plan based on the typical meals that I serve at home every day. Each week I make a meal plan very similar to the one you see here after checking the grocery store sales and our back stock. I post these meal plans in an effort to show you guys a little of our daily life as well as help you come up with your own meal plans. [Read more…]

Remember when I said I felt like big things were about to happen for us? Well, they are happening, people.


Of course, it’s nothing that I can talk about yet, but let me tell you there’s going to be a lot of change in this household in the next couple months. Sit tight I promise I’ll let you in on the haps (yes I totally just used haps in a sentence) soon.

In the meantime let’s talk November.

In November we talked a lot of holiday planning. Scratch that I talked a lot of holiday planning while Chuck did a lot of hunting. It’s always the case, isn’t it?

I didn’t get out to hike at all this month, but I’m cool with that because I did a lot of working out and walking instead. I did get to put the garden to bed and have quite a few fall fires. I love our fire place.

I got the opportunity to attend a number of get-togethers and see people that I never get the chance to which was awesome. It’s true what they say, that holidays really bring people together. And there’s only more to come in December!

Next up is December which is always a crazy month for us (and everyone else), And then we are on to the new year. How does it always happen so fast?



Spent on Groceries in August: $210.58

Total for the year: $2,630.41

Cost of Garden Supplies 2016: $221 (nothing again this month or for the rest of the year)

Venison Barely Stew

Venison Barely Stew

The cold weather has begun to settle over us here in the north east. We have gotten a few snow fall (though not much has stuck), a few freezing rains, and plenty of below freezing weather. I find myself reaching for wool socks and cozy sweaters as I get ready for work, and stuffing the pocket of all my coats with spare gloves just in case. It’s officially that time of year.
