Sunday Night Supper by the Fire

Last night DH and I were out tending to evening chores. I was cleaning out the chicken coop and he was setting a live trap to capture yet another critter. So far we have confiscated a pack rat and a couple of skunks. We walked by the fire pit and DH piped up, "How about supper by the fire tonight?" Have I mentioned that I am married to a brilliant man? :)

Who knows how to build a great fire:


Another glorious New Mexico sky at sunset:


Our big meal is at noon so at night we pretty much eat light...leftovers or something in a tortilla. At noon we had elk tenderloin...perfection and it was even better at night, by the fire. Add a bottle of Cabernet, some cheese, and crackers and soak in the good life.


Winding down:


Perfect way to end the weekend:

What a perfect way to cap off a day!! I'm guessing marshmallows, graham crackers and a bit of Hershey's Bar wouldn't have been the right compliment to the Cabernet?! :)

Gorgeous sunset photo! One to blow up for a frame I think. We get a lot of beautiful sunsets where I live in rural South Australia, possibly because we have a very similar climate to New Mexico.
