Pack, Unpack, Repeat … The Story Of My Married Life Thus Far

Tuesday 8th –

Mike had a customer he had to visit close to his parents house, thus why we had spent the night there.
He went to work while I stayed back and re-packed up all our things from the weekend and a few items that had stayed behind previously.

Mike came by to pick up me, our belongings and Fiji and take us back to the cottage.
He had picked up sandwiches for us and some extremely tasty cheese bread, filled with poppy-seeds and sesame seeds.
I WILL have that bread again.

Fiji and I got dropped off at the house and Mike went on to visit another customer.
I had the unpacking to do now, along with laundry and straightening everything up.
We kind of over did the food shopping …  

I took creamy leek soup out from the freezer and heated that up for supper along with some melted cheese bread.  


Wednesday 9th –

Not a whole lot happened during the day other than laundry, hanging laundry and waiting for it to feel as close to dry as hung laundry ever feels 😜

Mike and I had bought some sauce mixes at the store in Germany, so I chose a carbonara sauce to enjoy over bacon, oven roasted cherry tomatoes, chicken and colourful pasta shells.
It turned out pretty good and I’m all for easy, though ready mixed stuff kind of feels like cheating sometimes😬

That meal had sauce from Germany, pasta from Paris, bread from Holland and a Canadian chef… it was a meal created with foods from abroad but all hand picked by Mike or I.
The chef though, priceless πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ˜‹

We had to go out for groceries.
The fridge was in a pretty sad, empty state after us being gone for over a week.
So off to the grocery store we went.
I didn’t get annoyed at Mike for choosing things that were not on the list and he didn’t try and buy every single thing that was β€˜his very favourite ever and soo good’ 😏
Stores were closing so I was actually pretty quick, we are both getting better at the grocery store experience πŸ˜‰

I arranged our new goodies a little more presentably too 😏🍫🍭🍬  


Thursday 10th –

It was a bit of a busier day.
Got caught up on writing, or tried at least.
My system of keeping up with myself hasn’t been perfected yet 😁

Prepped some fruit for smoothies and the first mango we bought was a serious score, it was ridiculously tasty.  

Mike likes apple pastries/ desserts, so I figured I’d try concocting something for him. I don’t really like apple stuff thaaaat much.
I cut the apple up small and fried it was brown sugar, butter, cinnamon and corn starch before putting a spoonful of the filling onto rolled out biscuit dough.
Folded those up and baked them in muffin tins with a dollop of butter on top.
Drizzled with icing sugar icing to finish them off.
Mike liked them 😊

Wild rice casserole was made to accompany lemon salmon, mushrooms and toasted bread for supper and supper was eaten quickly as we had to make it back into town in time to look at some cars.

To the Audi dealership 😎
Mike may get a car as part of his job so we decided to browse a little and check out some different makes and prices. 

He said no to my pick… πŸ™„πŸ˜”

From there it was a simple evening of over indulging in snacks probably. Fairly big possibility that we were catching up on watching ‘White collar’ and also a good chance I perused Mike to practice his foot rubs skills πŸ˜„

Hello humans 😊 This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life 😊
