Much Ado About Muffin

Wednesday Sept 21st –



Much sitting, laying, writing and picture sorting for that mornings activities.

Ingredients for banana chocolate chip muffins had been picked up the previous day, so those got baked up.
I don’t like banana as a fruit to just eat plain or in ice cream or most desserts, but give me a banana chocolate chip (heavy on the chocolate chip ๐Ÿ˜‰) muffin and I’d happily live off them for days.
Also, I’m not a big breakfast eater and only a few things don’t upset my stomach first thing in the day and those muffins are on that list๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป
A muffin warmed and slathered with butter?
For breakfast, brunch and everything between?
I’m in!

Unfortunately only one muffin tin was at my disposal soo baking any more than a double batch would have taken to much time ๐Ÿ™„

Oh well, fresh is probably best so more shall have to be made ๐Ÿ˜‹

Besides the usual laundry, straightening up etc. I also worked on an idea I’ve been contemplating.
Designing and sketching up some plans more for fun then actual use in the future but you just never know ๐Ÿ˜

Thursday Sept 22nd –



Mike was working from home and I’m almost always awake before him anyways so I figured it was my turn to be the nice spouse and warm up some muffins, make coffee and deliver it to our room in the upmost part of the house ๐Ÿ˜

I then retreated back down to work on the blog and give him space to work from bed for a while, we then swapped work areas and I settled in to the unpleasant task of hair curling ๐Ÿ˜‹

It’s time consuming so I rarely do it but Mike asked and we were heading to a wedding reception later that afternoon meaning I had the time to do it and it wasn’t something I had to wake up early to accomplish ๐Ÿ˜

But still, it mainly just reminded me why I never do it ๐Ÿ˜œ

We got ourselves together and after a quick salad for lunch (no worries we haven’t constricted some kind of obnoxious disease ๐Ÿ˜œ) we began the two hour drive to the reception.

We got there moments before the food was served and our seats saved by dear cousins were still open, so it was a happily timed arrival ๐Ÿ˜‹

It was an Italian appetizer style meal and it was good and a change from the usual!
Mozza filled salad atop thinly sliced chicken, cheesy baked tomatoes, light salads, grilled strips of steak, breads, spreads and more made up our meal and we regained strength which we hadย previously lost by eating our salad lunch ๐Ÿ˜

Typical wedding style the slide shows and speeches followed as did an ice cream buffet and the ever available drink menu.
(Fizzy iced tea, cappuccinos, whipped cream topped hot chocolate, mint tea with actual mint leaves/stems, etc.)
It’s much more restaurant style at the weddings I’ve attended here.
The food is laid out by staff and the same staff are checkingย on and clearing tables all evening as well as constantly refilling and bringing new drinks.

The evening passed by and time came to light the paper lanterns to send off with the happily married couple ๐Ÿ’‘


(Don’t forget it’s the last day to enter the Beach Towel Giveaway !)

Hello humans ๐Ÿ˜Š 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 ๐Ÿ˜Š

  1. Nice post! I don’t like banana’s either as a fruit, better in a cake (with some chocolate drops)
    We were unfortunate we couldn’t attend the wedding. I would have loved to since the groom is one of my friends from church where I went to. I just streamed the sermon (doesn’t feel the same though) I hope you enjoyed it. The food really did sound nice!

    Keep on posting!
