::Dinner Plans #4::

This weekend has flown on by...we have been so busy!

We started the weekend with a high school basketball game, where we met up with a bunch of the hubs' coworkers. On Saturday, we went to shoot sporting clays.

Never had I shot sporting clays before, but wow, it is interesting! Bright orange clay "pigeons" are thrown into the air by a launcher. The goal is to shoot them before they come down and hit the ground. So weird. I didn't think I would like it, you know, because it's guns and all. But it was surprisingly fun and exciting. Although, I only hit one of the "pigeons" (don't worry they aren't real birds).

Saturday night, my hubs' grandma took all of her adult grandchildren out to dinner. The prerequisite is an age of 21+. It was a delightful dinner, and a tradition we have enjoyed for three years.

And today. Today, is a day of rest. A day of laundry, and the grocery store, and hanging out with cousins (Kid's cousins, that is). I wrote my meal plan this morning, and am excited that it features 3 days of a soup or stew. I cannot wait! One of my favorite parts of winter. Soups and stews.

Sunday: dinner with Mootzie & Pa (my parents--don't you love their grandparent name?!)
Monday: Pork Tacos with Avocado Pepper Spread
Tuesday: Chicken Soup
Wednesday: Venison Steaks with Steamed Broccoli

Friday: Venison Soup
Saturday: Beef Stew

So, there's the plan my friends.

Linking up with Jessica at jessica lynn writes.


  1. Do you have a recipe for the avocado pepper spread? Is it similar to guac? Sounds yum!

    1. I do have a recipe, although I am working on making a new one. This is one I found as part of a go-to can find it at

      It is absolutely delicious (as is the steak hash from the recipe!).
