Yes, we are back!!!!!
Back to WWII wartime rationing, not that we fully left it but we have been having too much "black market" and convenience food due to a hectic shedule and not having the time for all the cooking etc, a lot of time spent away from home etc.......
But I am going to make the time.
Over here in Kiwiland, it has been a cold winter so I have been making lots of pots of warming vege soup which is a meal in itself. Served with either toast or crunchy croutons.
|Yummy vege soup.|
|Eggs from our lovely ladies.|
Our lovely ladies of the backyard, our chickens, have been laying lots of lovely eggs for us. I've got some serious baking to do over the next few days.
Also keeping us occupied on our many train rides and any spare time in the evening, is our poppy making.
We are helping our local libraries with making 2,721 poppies for a display next year commemorating the 2,721 New Zealanders from Kapiti (Paraparaumu, Waikanae and Otaki) who died in WWI.
So far Salem and I have made 900 and we are still going.
I came up with a nice easy crochet pattern which I will post soon, so keep an eye out for it.
Not bad for our first blog post for a while, nice to be back.
