Winter Escape

This week was spent down at Basecamp in Irwin. Highlight of the week has been the FOOD! I guess after so much travel I was in the cooking and baking mood. A yummy week! Takes about an hour from our place to drive down. Left after the funeral Monday. Dinner was a little later than normal but the BYU vs. Pepperdine game was late as well so it worked out. Pork chops, mashed potatoes and peas. Fresh baked chocolate chip cookies at halftime during the 🏀 game. The cookies were warm, the milk was cold and BYU won so it was a perfect night.

Tuesday spent the morning snowshoeing and the afternoon snowmobiling. Some fresh snow, sleet and rain. Braved it all out there on a cold 🥶 day. Taco Tuesday with crushed pineapple and for dessert cherry jello. BYU vs Gonzaga tonight in the conference championship. Thought the Cougars were going to pull off the upset but Gonzaga finished strong. I hope our Cougars do well in the Tournament. March Madness Baby!

Wednesday cold but the weather has been nice. Snowshoeing and several hours of a new show on AppleTV+ called For All Mankind. Ron Moore who produced The reimagined Battlestar Galactica is the guy behind this show as well. A fun twist on the space race. I don’t want to give it away but I highly recommend it. Great story telling with a historical background. Tonight homemade chicken noodle soup and rolls. Scotcharoos for dessert.

Thursday another day out on the sleds and after a nap read for a couple hours before dinner. T-bones, baked potato, corn on the cob and apple pie. Keith was in charge tonight I just helped prepare. The Grill Jedi did a great job. The corn on the cob had butter, garlic salt, Mrs. Dash seasoning and pepper wrapped in tinfoil. Just insanely delicious. Tonight the game of Risk. Played the fast version of World Domination. I did not win.

Friday another beautiful sunny day and the weather is warming up a bit. Cross country skiing after lunch. I am a little sore. 😂. Homemade personal pan pizzas and chicken wings for dinner and watching the Jazz game. Haven’t watched them this year but caught a game. Those uniforms were really bad! Glad they beat Houston.

Saturday slept in till 7:30 and stayed in bed till 8. No sexy just being lazy. Friends came down from Idaho Falls for a day in the outdoors. Keith played guide and took them out snowmobiling. Pancakes, sausage, bacon and OJ for breakfast. Magnolia chili to warm up for lunch. Ribs for dinner. Hot chocolate all day long. Went snowshoeing with my friend to show her around after lunch. Played Spades ♠️ this afternoon before dinner. Hit 45 today and it was perfect out there. Cleaned up and currently headed back to Idaho Falls.

Time to cook and bake is sometimes a luxury. I really enjoyed myself this week. Glad for a lot of activity to balance the eating cause there was a lot of food. Sometimes you just need a break to slow down, reflect, meditate, nap, talk. Took advantage of that time every day this week. Bubble baths every night. Both with Keith and without Keith. I am a happy girl.
