Back from Missouri

Updated with photos, right here.
Curt and I headed to Missouri for the weekend and the opening of deer season.
The weather wasn't good for hunting and Curt didn't have the opportunity to get a deer. And he had a new rifle and all. Oh well.
Curt and I flew in Friday night. Ed and Marilyn picked us up at the airport and we headed to St. Joe for dinner at the Ground Round. Yum to fried food!
Saturday morning Curt and Ed headed to the farm. Eventually Marilyn and I headed to Poppa's for breakfast. The guys met us there. We headed home and soon after that Grandma Phyllis came for a visit. We had yummy fried venison tenderloin sandwiches (a fave of Curt's).
Eventually the guys went back out to the farm. Marilyn and I hung out. She also made a homemade pumpkin pie--including the crust. So good!
We had a delicious venison loin for dinner. (The loin was from the deer Curt got last year.) Grandma P. came back for dinner. After dinner the Humphreys came over for a visit and some pumpkin pie.
Sunday morning the guys went back out to the farm. Marilyn and I hung out at the house knitting, watching movies, etc. Marilyn made a homemade apple crisp. That woman is amazing. It was so good! (I am going to get the recipe from her for Thanksgiving dessert.) Grandma P. came back out for lunch--leftovers.
Curt and Ed went back out to the farm that afternoon. Early that evening they called saying they were at Tightends--new sports bar in town. Marilyn and I met the guys and Howard and Myrna for a drink. The bar looks pretty good.
After the bar Marilyn and I picked up Grandma P. and took her to the house for dinner and, of course, another visit with Katie--her adorable little dog. We had enchiladas for dinner--Marilyn's own recipe, which was super good. And then apple crisp for dessert, which was made with Splenda/brown sugar mix. Another Humphrey visit after that.
Then we relaxed and watched Up.
This morning Ed took us to the airport. Man, it was some wild weather. Lots of rain, then a little sleet, then full on snow. Our plane left a little late because of the deicing. But we still came in a little early.
Ed and Marilyn are always great hosts. And the homemade food is always amazing.
Oh, I forgot to mention Ed bought me a Snuggie--a blue one. But the deal is it has to stay in Albany, which is perfect. A pink one for home and a blue one when visiting Ed and Marilyn.

Curt needs to take me along for good luck.

Heya, Ann -- are you doing the soldier hats again this year?

I know it's probably too late, but someone contacted me on Ravelry saying she was in the Bay area and would like to drop them off to you if you were sending a shipment off ... you can email me on Ravelry if you'd like.

You've been invited, Sasaki. If you'd just quit your globetrotting for a week.

what is: "yummy friend venison tenderloin sandwiches"?

if it is the "friend" of the venison, does that mean you had cooked Thumper?

No more friends. Just fried! See, this is what happens when I am fried while blogging--not a good combo.
Good catch Kate.

Are you, or Marilyn, willing to share the apple crisp recipe? I love apple crisp and it is the time of year for it. Thanks.
