Beau Gowan, Crazy Vizsla Hey everyone! Good morning and happy weekend! I had to post this picture of Beau since it cracks me up. He’s got quite the personality on him. 

It’s a super full weekend involving about one million errands for us. I also have a ton of cookies to bake for the 12 Days of Christmas Cookies. 

I wanted to share this week’s meal plan with you since there’s some delicious dinners coming up for us. This weekend is all about eating some of the venison that we just got. Trevor got a deer a couple weeks ago so we’re going to start incorporating that into our meal plans. If you don’t have (or like) venison and are interested in either of these recipes or the whole meal plan, then just substitute beef. 

Meal Plan: 

  • Saturday: Rosemary Crusted Venison Tenderloin with Sweet Potatoes
  • Sunday: Venison Stout Chili with Cheddar Cornbread
  • Monday: Homemade Panko-Crusted Chicken Tenders with Sweet Potato Wedges (again, I have a lot leftover!)
  • Tuesday: Lasagna Soup
  • Wednesday: Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken with Rice and frozen Trader Joe’s Succotash
  • Thursday: Something out of the freezer 

Giveaway Winner!

And now for the fun stuff. So the winner of the Chemex, filters and coffee is…..
