A Sufficient Form Of Fuel

Sunday 29th –



A Lazy German pancake was made for breakfast.
(Take no offence from the dishes name my German acquaintances 😜)

I’d never made the pancake dish before, so I was a little worried about it not turning out well, with two guys and myself needing fuel to get us through till late afternoon. But it proved to be a sufficient form of fuel indeed! 😊

It poofed up like crazy when it was baking but once you take it out of the oven it shrinks back to a more normal ish size 😜

Recipe here : Lazy German Pancakes from Girl Inspired πŸ΄

(I just hand mixed mine rather then use the blender as she suggests)

It wasn’t the most glorious breakfast ever eaten but for how easy it was to prepare, it was tasty.
Especially with the fruit Mike had cut up as his part in the breakfast making πŸ˜πŸ“

Church time and then an afternoon spent napping (which Mikes cousin Mathieu informed us was a very old person thing of us to enjoy doing 😜).

Pizzas were made for dinner and by the time those were prepared, eaten and cleaned up our day way done.




Monday 30th –



Internet was still out πŸ™„

I had a drawing requested so I spent a good portion of the day working on that and searching for a car to paint.

Since Mathieu had been to our house and seen the lack of displayed paintings, he told me he didn’t believe me that that’s what I did and he wanted to see some proof 😏
And proof he would have.

I had a peanut butter and jam sandwich for lunch and I loved it ❀️
The evening before, it had come to mind that I hadn’t had one in a very long time and it was decided then and there that the next day I would remedy such a problem.
Yes, we think of our next days meal options often times while eating a present meal😁                                                 I’m glad I remembered the perfect sandwich combo and it shall be enjoyed more often with some of the remaining homemade raspberry jam mom sent me .

Supper was farmers sausage and tortellini pasta with a spinach and cream cheese sauce. 

Mike ordered a new wifi router and he also printed a larger image of the car I had chosen to  paint for Mathieu so I could use it as a size reference the next day.

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 😊
