Sunday Dec 11th –
We took ‘the day of rest’ literally 😒
Sick in bed we stayed for much of the morning and once we left the comfort of the room it was mainly a relocation to the couch 🙄
Mike went to the nearby co-op once it opened at noon and got strawberries and bananas to top the French toast casserole he’d got me to make the night before 😏
Brunch was served 🍓🍌🍞🍴
A nap was taken 😴❤️
I did complete the days verse later on in the day and was rather pleased with the results pounding head pushed aside momentarily🌵💕
Supper was good though 😋👌🏻
Monday Dec 12th –
I awoke feeling better, if one can call coughing dryly and constantly, better 😏
But things had to be done! Canada Awaits! 😁❤️
First thing, finish the mini marshmallows my sis sent me so they didn’t go stale while we were gone… it was purely for practicalities sake, I’m not saying I enjoyed it 🙄😏
Next, prepare some little packages to leave with the family we wouldn’t be spending holidays with.
My first time making caramels began and in the end of the long process, I think I can say the result was pretty pleasing 😊
I haven’t been able to find corn syrup here anywhere so I had to find a recipe that used honey and it gave the caramels a little bit of a different flavour but hopefully the recipients consider it a good difference 😉🙈
After the boiling, stirring, boiling more, pouring, semi cooling, salt sprinkling and cutting up was finished, the wrapping began😬
I did a fair bit of them and then supper had to get started on, so I put the caramels aside and decided Mike could try his hand at candy wrapping later that evening 😏😜🍬
Supper was Greek style.
Greek fried burgers with toast, fried potatoes, tzatziki sauce, citrus cucumbers, and my attempt at phylo baked feta.
It was tasty but the feta here tasted a bit more sour then I’m used too but if we hadn’t eaten the real thing in Greece and had that to compare it too, I would have said it was a pretty nice turn out 😋
After supper Mike and I wrapped up the rest of the caramels and got a few things ready for the next days plans, including finishing the paperwork required for me to stay here, until we can go to Canada.
Adulthood equals paperwork I think 🙄📑
