Plumping Up, Perogie Preparing, Packing Postponed

Friday Jan 7th –

 

 

 

I spent some of that morning shopping from my sisters suitcases 😜

I haven’t really enjoyed my shopping options in Europe and I like much from the states but shipping is extortionately pricey so I stay wearing much from my teen years 😜
(Dunno if I should admit that? 😬)
Since I’ll be back home in April I decided to try some of Pro’s stuff on for reference and if it works I’ll ship things to her and she get it to Mom
πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‘—πŸ’Έ

Mom whipped up multiple thin pizzas for our lunch and they were delicious πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»β€οΈπŸ•

 

 

Alaina requested a face painting as Grams had given her one a previous day.
This time though Uncle Mike was around, and he or Al, or maybe both, decided it would be a good idea if he did the painting instead πŸ˜‹πŸŽ¨

He did well!
Besides listening to her color suggestions and grasping her head perhaps a tad aggressivelyπŸ™ˆ

 
She was supposed to be a purple kitty… and looked more like a red monster with a green nose, but with grams help the red turned more purple and the green, magically turned pink πŸ˜‰
The group effort paid off and Al was happy, annnd no I don’t have a photo 😬

Us kids (Pro, Mike, Al and Bryn) went downstairs to veg out in front of ‘Horton Hears A Who’ for awhile before everyone had to get ready to head over to The Naber’s for dinner😁

They had invited just Mike, Mom, Dad and I before anyone knew of Josh and Pro and the girls coming but they graciously extended the invitation to them as well so it was a houseful, one big happy family πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Supper was delicious and I ate like a thing that eats a lot.
I was going to say like a pig but do they really actually eat thaaaaat much??
Who knows.

It was a delicious meal of hash brown potatoes, corn, green bean casserole, salad and beef on a bun πŸ½πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ˜‹
I think I filled my plate four times 😬

 

 

This may not have been Mike and my’s most slimming holiday 😜

Our evening passed in a flurry of conversations and it was lovely ☺️❀️

 

 
Saturday Jan 8th –

 

 
The last day at home.
It’s always a nice one but the lingering dread of the next day lays upon everyone.
(Or almost everyone 😏)

I blogged, Bonnie made breakfast bagels and Bob and Mike took the garbage to the dump 😜

The bagel was delicious, as I think most everything of Mothers is 😁

I did some online shopping in anticipation of our April trip already πŸ™ˆ

Becca and Spencer came over since Nathin and Josh had kicked her out of the house so they could have boy time and Mike was supposed to go join them 😜

Dad and Mom had jokingly mentioned that I should make perogies while I was there and I had planned too but with Josh, Pro and the girls showing up it just hadn’t happened.

But I decided as a farewell gift I could do it and one batch of perogies began taking shape.

Until Mom told me we had no potatoes for filling 😜
Becca said she had some so Mike brought them back to the house for us but in the waiting time I decided to concoct some dessert style perogies, blueberry ones, my favourite πŸ˜πŸ’™

Once the potatoes were acquired I mixed up a triple batch of dough, Mom rolled it out and Becca, Pro, Mom and I got to work cutting, stuffing and pinching the cheesy potato filled pockets of goodness 😁

 

 

But not before we also realized we didn’t have any Cheese Wiz 😜
Something else Becca said she had back at her house πŸ™ˆ
Dad retrieved the missing ingredient that timeπŸ˜‰
 

 

Anyway, somehow or the other the other the perogies got made and taken to the truck so they could freeze out in the garage since the freezers were too full 😜

Mom made a super duper tasty supper with the partridges Nathin had shot this past fall.
Chicken Kiev… chicken breaded in crumbs and seasonings, stuffed with onion soup mix, rolled and fried πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

 
Perogies were made along with it and Pro and I got to share the three cabbage rolls Mom had left in the freezer.

We may not have lots of Ukrainian in us… but so far as I can tell we are rather pleased with their food πŸ˜‹

Nephew and nieces were hung out with, writing worked on… packing avoided.
