I'm trying to be clever, is it working? Aanaarden is dutch for hill, my dad is dutch and I like to learn new words.
:: Payed $30 for 17kg of Pink Lady apples, washed them to remove residue and am using the dehydrator non-stop.
:: After waiting a week for donated lemons to juice up, I am busy squeezing and freezing the juice.
:: Making delicious grainy bread to feed the munchkins after school each day.
:: Cooking up yummy snacks to fill their lunchboxes.
:: Grateful for a warm cozy home that is filled with love.
:: Smiles on Sophie's beautiful face before and after her tap exam
:: Dreaming of a wood fired pizza oven.
:: Happy that the girls are all laying again.
:: Waiting for some sunshine so we can eat once again from our garden.
:: Hoping that Daniel's ear infection improves quickly.
:: Feeling so blessed to be able to stay at home for most of the week to take care of my family.
:: Trying really hard to work out a new plan that keeps us in fresh food from the garden all year round.

How was your week?


  1. Oh, you HAVE been busy! Love the photos... So nice to tuck those away for future eating :)

  2. You have had a busy week. I feel so lazy after reading this post.

  3. Ooh, I loved seeing your dehydrator all stacked up with apples, Sue! I do long for one..maybe one day. A lovely week for you, it's wonderful to be cosy and snug at home baking for the family, isn't it! :)

  4. Boring sickie week here. I like the look of that special apple wash. What is it? Would love to do some dried apples while their so cheap.
