No Horsing Around

Yesterday the girls and I headed down to work on our pond/garden project. Because I’m waiting for the new harness to show up before really training the horses I didn’t put either to work but as you can see Shennen seemed to be willing. She didn’t leave our side all the while we were working.

Yesterday was a lighter day. We just picked up the loose dirt on the edge of the pond so I could till deeper yet. It doesn’t look like much and honestly we didn’t work as hard or long as the previous day’s but that’s about 20 loads in the sled and 6″ deeper in the middle 200sqft of the pond.

For dinner we had leftovers refurbished. I love having certain leftovers because it’s so easy and quick to make a meal when all you want to do is sit down and have a cold one.

This is a combination of leftover smoked ribs, baked beans and rice along with a fresh onion, anaheim, jalapeno, and corn. And because us girls have our own favorite way of doing things we literally had it 3 different ways.

My youngest had it on a tortilla with cheese and dessert.

My oldest went the wrap and lettuce rout sans the cheese and dessert.

And me? I don’t need the extra carbs so I skipped the wrap and went for the high protein and veggie route. I drank my carbs so it’s not like I’m on a carb free diet. I just pick my carb battles to fit the day. 😉

Leftovers are a busy mom’s best friend. I think today I’m going to smoke up some chicken pork just for the sake of quick and easy meals this week. It’s going to be a busy week.

Hope you’re all enjoying your weekend!

First campfire cooking of the year…

The teenager is back. An hour’s drive up into the mountains and we packed her up and brought her back.

Not before planning a stop at the grocery store for some BBQ worthy meat. Yep hotdogs and smores were on our list.

It’s not too often we eat store bought dogs but in the spirit of sunny weather we have to go old school. Dogs and smores over a campfire.

I managed to eat two dogs without taking a picture. Oops!

The marshmallows this year are smore ready.

Very square.

But I like eating marshmallows one burnt layer at a time and the new square marshmallows don’t come apart in layers. So annoying. But still yummy.

Well it’s almost 9pm and sunrise comes early nowadays so I have to crash.

Hope you had a great Friday and have a fun weekend!

Good night!
