Today I am going with Chloe for her wedding dress fitting. What a day! I am so excited!
Andy is much better. He had a very sick week but is doing well now. So I didn't get heaps of extras done it was more a matter of keeping up.
These are some of the ways I saved and got ahead this week:
I found some great bargains in the supermarket. I found half priced steak and we had some for dinner and I froze two lots for other nights.
I used bananas from the freezer and left over yoghurt to make muffins for the girls.
I bought the ballerinas from an Etsy shop called The Dream Peddlery. She really does peddle dreams I thought with her creations.... I make a lot of things. But if I buy something I love to get it from a small home business. If you like paper crafts take a look at her shop too.
I worked on using the figs Chloe gave me. We had them baked with cream cheese and prosciutto
one night. This is before baking...
I served them with rocket, a simple salad, and sticky balsamic vinegar.
Another night I did them baked with cream cheese and honey and served them with ice-cream.
Also I made jam with figs and almonds. This is so good! The colour turned out quite a deep burgundy...
I made yoghurt.
Every spare moment I worked on my craft room and craft cupboard.
During the week I got this photo sent to me by Luke...
This is my fruitcake he is eating. I interpret this to mean "this is good please feel free to send more" and this is all the encouragement I need 😊 (you can see he is on the tractor and the dry paddock)
Chloe rang and she had just saved her chickens from a Wedge Tailed Eagle! I told her to try and take a photo at the same time as flapping her arms if it should come back! These are HUGE and can easily carry off a chicken. But she has never had this happen before!
I hope you had a good week! How did you build up your nest, get ahead, add to your pantry?
I am off to get ready for this wedding dress fitting. Days like these are very special! xxx
