    Rec'd a phone call at noon from the guy that dh brought up to the moose camp for the weekend to see if they are interested in paying to hunt with dh & FIL - anyways dh is staying another day and will be home tomorrow as he wanted to get some stuff done.

    Well I picked the rhubarb all 5 1/2 cups of it and make rhubarb crisp it was yummers, tart yet sweet a lovely mixture and a light dessert. Since the oven was going made a batch of muffins for lunches, will put 1/2 in the freezer for another day.

    I have a whole chicken pulled from the freezer for tomorrows dinner

    Going to pull the turkey from the freezer tomorrow and cook when thawed, I've looking on pinterest for some recipes to make something different.

    Well back to pinterest, see you all later
    2019 is the year that we continue to save before we buy!!!

    Oh, MrsS - that's awful treatment of your dad. Make sure you register a complaint there!

    J&C - I'm SO jealous of you having rhubarb! I love rhubarb crisps and squares!

    Sent husband shopping, so what we have for supper depends upon what meats he comes home with - and what the timing is by then - so for now it's up in the air.

    Hope y'all are having a great aft!

    Dinner is totally prepped and ready to turn on bbq! Kitchen is clean and dinner dishes will go right in dishwasher. Was hoping to go for a bike ride after dinner if it doesn't rain.
