I had pretty much the perfect day today.
Now, prepare to laugh at what a simple girl I am, that the following constitutes my perfect day:
1. Slept in (of course).
2. Rode the 4-wheeler.
3. Did a little stocking-stuffer shopping.
4. Rode the 4-wheeler a little more.
5. Made spaghetti with ground venison meatballs for dinner.
6. Baked cookies. A lot of cookies.
7. Enjoyed a lovely fire in my fire pit.
8. Watched a movie with my love.
9. Now Elayna and I are painting each others’ nails. (including toenails. Those who know me well will understand – that is a BIG DEAL.)
Yep – that’s it, y’all. A perfect day in this girl’s life! Of course, the fine company of the girls and the hubby contributed to the perfect-ness.
It was my first time making meatballs with the ground venison; the only thing I’d made before with it was chili. Hubby told me that they usually tend to be bland, but mine were ‘perfect’. I seasoned them well and maybe even went a littttle heavy on the red pepper flakes. But they were delicious! I love cooking with meat that has never been shot up with chemicals or fed weird food or eaten pesticide-covered food. They also lived a peaceful, natural life until it was humanely ended for my dinner. I don’t remember the last time we’ve bought meat for the house; we use venison and wild hog almost exclusively at home.
I love living out in the woods on dirt roads so that we can ride around on the four-wheeler and not disturb anyone.
We made peanut butter cookies with Hugs AND Kisses. After we put the candy on top, we popped them back in the oven for a minute to melt the chocolate, and the Hugs melted way faster, FYI, in case you decide to try them. They look a little like striped nipples. I’m just saying.
But they taste very good!
While sitting by the fire pit, I blasted Christmas songs from the truck radio. Wearing a t-shirt. It was 70 degrees out.
Elayna is currently painting my toenails purple, and we are watching Chopped. She’s also making me laugh till I cry.
Life is good!
