Vehemently And Pathetically Appealing

Tuesday Oct 31st –

After some morning coffee and contemplations I headed to our house so I could use the wifi and drop off some more boxes.


Day three of the ’14’ day fix.

Still feeling hungry.

Feeling very sore.

Not seeing any abs.


Beginning to question this program 😏😜


Not really, it’s just when evening hits and I want sweets or popcorn or just anything very vehemently, that it feels hardest 😫

Or when I don’t have a morning cookie with my coffee πŸ˜’


I shouldn’t even be blogging right now cause I’m making myself hungry 😜


Anyways, I hung out there to work out and do a few internet requiring things, before going back to my other home, to make supper.


Roasted veggies, leftover rice, pita bread and some grilled, chicken and bacon souvlaki things Mike had bought to test.



I did not like them.

So much so, that I did not eat them and I usually don’t NOT eat so πŸ’πŸ»πŸ˜œ


A new shipment of cookies had arrived for Mike, so we had to go unload them at our place after dinner.

Meaning many a trip up and down the stairs, carrying not the lightest ever cookies, but after doing so I didn’t feel bad about eating some πŸ˜‹

Wednesday Nov 1st –

So, as I lay in bed one night, when I should have been sleeping but instead my brain wouldn’t shut up, I had an idea.

Potentially very scary I know 😏

The next night I told my husband about this ‘idea’ and his response was that when he was out and about and told people where his house was, many had responded that they used to buy pies there.

During the NEXT day’s unpacking of home items, my mother pulled out pie plates and a rolling pin my papa (her dad) had used and she said how good he had been at baking pies.

Hang on, the point is coming πŸ˜‰

Now, the idea I had, was to perhaps try making some pies and putting up a sign at our small post office to advertise them,  just to see what would happen and if you ask me, hearing those two responses right after, seemed like a good enough reason to try it out for me! πŸ˜‰



All of that said was to tell you what I did Wednesday morning/afternoon, which was sketch out menu ideas and illustrations ☺️😜


Breakfast was as follows, as I’m staying with the 14 day fix eating plan and I actually really like this as a filling breakfast.


Though I prefer the cottage cheese cooked in with the egg rather than just beside.

(It’s especially easy when you make extra veggies for supper the night before πŸ‘ŒπŸ»)



Supper was Italian spiced burgers and salad and then the husband left me to go play pickle ball and I passed the evening by reading 😏



Note that most food pictures will be from Mikes plate now, as my portions look more pathetic than appealing  πŸ˜œ

(Way to tell if it is Mike or Jess’s plate? If it is mine, the foods won’t be touching 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 😊

  1. That pie selling idea sounds super nice! You should definitely give it a try! πŸ™‚

    Funny how your posts seem to contain extra food pictures at times that you’re trying to eat extra healthy..😏😏
