Wknd Grub

Had a fantastic weekend outside. Yard time, play time, good grilled grub.

On Saturday hubs grilled burgers. We only had venison in the freezer, so I took that and added some randoms to make it wow.

1 lb ground venison
1/2 of an onion, minced, sautéed in a little butter
1 tbsp of minced garlic
1 tsp or so of horseradish
1 tsp or so of Worcestershire
1 egg
sprinkle some fresh parmesan
salt to taste
pepper to taste

Mix it all up and patty. Grill. Don't do well done, venison is better slightly pink. A couple of burgers had american cheese on them. "Best burgers ever mom," Rory, 4 years old.

Mom and Dad had a burger topped with herbed goat cheese, spinach and sundried tomato tapenade on a bakery bun. Fantastic! Recipe keeper for sure. "You outdid yourself on this one, honey," Klint, 35 years old. :)

Sunday salad day. Marinated chicken, hubs grilled and I threw this salad together. YUM! Also boiled corn on the cob. Perfect combo. Recipe is now saved and will be great for summer parties. Took a little prep time, but so fresh and good! I used organic chicken and it was so moist and flavorful. I also substituted Sesame Teriyaki marinade for the hoisin sauce because I was out of that. I only used white sesames as well. Fresh ginger is everything! And the smell is so amazing!

Please ignore my horrible picture here and my teak table. It needs something! I'm trying to decide what to do with it. Suggestions? Done treating it. Paint perhaps? New patio furniture next year. For now, teak has to do. Grill season is upon us. Must act soon. Happy these recipes!

Market Recap

If you follow me on Instagram you saw that I made a last minute High Point Market trip with work. Thankful I was able to go. We had some clients to see and a couple of inspirational places to hit. We saw some cool stuff along the way.

Top fave was maybe Gus or Moe's many, I don't even know! Pretty products everywhere and Currey & Company's space was beautiful and their lights and treats were fantastic! I could have stayed another day to explore, but my feet were tired and we had to get home. Just a few snapshots...

LOVE this patio chair!

Could buy everything in this store! Outdoor heaven!

More pics on Instagram. Hope to head back next year!

Sunday Funday

Took a little time this past weekend to do a little bit of nothing! Picture taking, cousin time, some Frozen, outside playing, grilling... and just now finding time to post this little gem.


And right now it's 71 degrees and we're going to do more of this! Could it be? Is it Spring? Finally!

Friday Find

Happy Friday bitches! I missed out on this danish piece today. Booo. Go antiquing. You can find what you want! For a lot less sometimes. (I would have changed the knobs on cool!)

I've been eyeballing this one. For $600 more. ARGH! Who got it???

I was too slow. Oh well, saving for that beach trip! Peace out.

Vintage Find

I'm into vintage. I wonder into antique stores often. Mostly do a quick browse in and out, but often find a good thing. These were a fun find! LOVE them! 2 for $12 a piece. Score! Will substitute in kitchen for now. The chairs I really want are pricey and these might do. Now onto getting a bench built in the corner, swag a light, add a new table and we will be on our way to a cozy nook.
