48 Is Great!

Well, another successful bear hunt completed and now I'm back home and it's my birthday!!  We had to drive the boat all night so I am operating on about 3 hours of sleep feeling very groggy. 

God has blessed me with such great family and friends!  Evonne Beiler arrived last night.  She is going to cook on the next trip and I am going to stay home to tend to the garden and Levi.  Everyone says we look like sisters!

It was a long day of boat work, but we came home to a stellar dinner that Connie made for us!  Lasagna...

...and pineapple upside down cake....

Both recipes are from The Pioneer Woman's cookbook.

Every recipe in this cook book is excellent!

It was a great day. 


  1. Happy Birthday Lori! You 2 do look exactly like sisters and that birthday meal looks AMAZING!!

  2. Hey, that's my mom! Have fun cooking while we hold down the fort. Happy Birthday "Aunt" Lori!
