If you've been reading here for any length of time, you can probably guess by that title that we're gearing up for our fall cow works. Between mowing and making preparations, it's been a busy week. I've been pouring over recipes and making my grocery list and menu for a couple of days:
We had a horse sale at the sale barn on Saturday and I had planned on getting groceries after work, but I was just too pooped. It was after 6 when I left work and I knew that would put me home after 9, not to mention getting over $300 worth of groceries put up. However, that meant an early morning trip into town on Sunday morning:
I would have been in town earlier, but DH was worried about me being in town in the pre-dawn hours by myself. Thankfully, by the time I got to the market, I just about had the entire place to myself:
I never have understood the need for a grocery store to stay open 24 hours, but I laughed when I ran into a good friend there who works the night shift in a sleep clinic and had just gotten off of work. She has always been a night owl and often goes to bed as I am getting up.
My fridge is filled to overflowing for the week ahead:
As is the bunkhouse fridge:
That is what $7500 of medicine looks like. And I thought groceries were expensive!
I'm headed over to scrub down the bunkhouse and then make it an early night, as 4 a.m. will be here before I know it. If anyone needs me this week, you'll find me elbow deep in bread dough and soap suds:
