Sometimes It’s the Little Things – New Projects, Pantry Re-organization & Coffee Table-scapes

Coffee Tablescape

Hello friends. Yesterday, I had the most lovely Sunday that I've had in a long time. No over-ambitious meal prep for the week (well, I made my lunches, but that was it!), no rushing around trying to squeeze a week's worth of housework into 2 hours, just a "it'll get done when it gets done" attitude … Continue reading Sometimes It’s the Little Things – New Projects, Pantry Re-organization & Coffee Table-scapes

My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

HellOooo. I hope you've all had a wonderful week. It's been raining a lot here, but the temperatures have been 10 deg. C above what we normally get here. We've even had some double digits! I can live with that. I lost the 3 lbs that I put on over the the Christmas holidays - … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Hi everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. I had the nicest time off. It's wonderful to spend time at home and just mooch around and enjoy. It's back to work for me today after 10 lovely days. I must admit, I'm having a little trouble getting back into it. Typing, spelling and, … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Cheesy Enchiladas, Rattatouille and More

My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

HellOoo Vegetarian lovers (and some meat lovers too). I hope you've all had a good start to the week. Are you all ready for Christmas? I can finally say that I am. Christmas is a pretty low-key event in our house focused around food, drink and relaxing. This weekend I finished off my Christmas shopping … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Cheesy Enchiladas, Rattatouille and More

Christmas Decorations are Finally Up!

Christmas tree

Hello all. I hope you've all had a good start to the week. I finally got my Christmas tree up and a few decorations. My house is tiny (I may have mentioned that before - LOL), so it's a bit of squeeze. But, it's only for a few weeks. This year's theme is blue white … Continue reading Christmas Decorations are Finally Up!

December in Our Garden – More Porch Love & a Recycling Solution (at last!)

Christmas fir trees

HellOoooo, how are you all? Is everyone ready for Christmas? Me neither. I'm very late putting up my Christmas tree and decorations. We were going to do it last weekend, but ended up doing all sorts of running around and, to be quite honest, I just ran out of steam. Soooo, I vow to do … Continue reading December in Our Garden – More Porch Love & a Recycling Solution (at last!)

HellOooo vegetable lovers (and the occasional meat lover)! I must admit that this week's menu has more meat in it than I'd like, but my Jamie Oliver cookbook showed up on Friday - Jamie Cooks Italy and I just had to incorporate some of his meals into the menu. I just luuurve Jamie Oliver's food … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

A Little Bit More Organization and a Fridge Clean Out

I know I've said it before, but organizing never really ends, does it? Just when I think I have it all figured out ... I never really do. I was doing a bit of a mini spring clean in my kitchen last weekend and saw a few things I could improve upon. The cupboard under … Continue reading A Little Bit More Organization and a Fridge Clean Out

December (already!) In Our Garden – Operation Clean Up – Porch-appeal

Hello everyone, Well, all we managed to do this weekend (actually, I should say hubby did all the work) was put the stone slabs in front of the porch to finish it off. We found these lovely little slabs underneath an old bath tub in the garden that had all the soil in it. I … Continue reading December (already!) In Our Garden – Operation Clean Up – Porch-appeal
