My husband and some of his friends, his brother and my son and daughter go hunting every fall. We decided to have a 'game dinner' this year and invite all the hunt participants to come for dinner and eat game. My husband and I went out for coffee about a week ago and sat down and made a calendar so we would get all the prep organized and set in motion. We planned everything from counting glasses to setting the table and what food prep and shopping would be done on what day. We planned this so it would keep us on track and well organized to reduce stress and anxiety. Everything went well. Later that evening my husband says to me," I think I will cook pheasant and serve it with rice!" My jaw dropped. "Is it on the list?" I asked him. He looked at me like he didn't understand. I said,"We made a calendar and list to make sure everything went smoothly. If it is not on the list, it isn't happening." "Oh, ya, right," he says.
So one day I made venison bourguignon, another venison meatballs with mustard sauce, venison and garlic sausage meatloaf with raisin sauce. Yesterday my daughter in law helped me to make a lemon dessert and we finished prepping the broccoli and boiled raisin cake. It has been a very busy week. Last night my husband says," I think I will make a pineapple upsidedown cake in the morning." OMG!!!!
Anyway, 12 people came for dinner. We have enough leftovers to feed another 12 people! I am very tired and ready for bed.
Yesterday I worked out at the gym with my trainer. I felt really well and had lots of energy for a change. She asked me how I was doing with the leg exercises we did the last time. I foolishly told her that I was doing well. My legs weren't sore at all. Well didn't she find a way to remedy that situation! I am sore all over today. And I had a blast, too!
