Delicious Proportions And Peculiar Partings

Thursday Dec 28th –



The sister and nieces came over for the day, so that pretty much tells you the amount of stuff I got done 😏

One thing…😜

That ‘thing’ was one of delicious proportions though because it was making caramel popcorn.
The gooey kind, not the kind that hardens and gets crunchy 🀀🍿



I wanted to make some to try sending with the husband for my father-in-law and ended up having a β€˜little’ extra for us here 😜


It was overly sweet and overly addicting so I call that a success though I won’t know how it traveled πŸ™ˆ


I made poutine with three types of cheese and bacon for Mike and my dinner and then he rushed out to go play soccer, not wanting to be totally out of practice pre-Europe 😏😜



That evening my niece returned to visit me* Β while the others played pickle ball πŸ˜πŸ’•

Friday Dec 29th –


A scurrying to pack up the last needed items occurred that morning before heading off to the city with Mom and my sister and her husband.

It was -50 with the windchill, so even the shortest of walks from vehicle to store, produced a literally bone chilling cold πŸ˜΅β„οΈ

We stopped for lunch at Bon Temps Cafe.

A interestingly decorated restaurant with brick walls, accent tile ceilings and a couple black and white murals of musicians, making the music being played, seem all the more realistic πŸ˜‰



Mike and I shared The Fire Bird and the others tried some kind of chicken burgers.


Ours was deliciously crispy chicken strips with spicy seasonings served on a waffle, topped with dill pickles.
Mike and I really liked it πŸ˜„πŸ‘ŒπŸ»


The others said their burgers were tasty but nothing fabulous and all of the menu items have some heat to them, so if you go, don’t say I didn’t warn you πŸ˜‰


Post lunch it was time to drop the husband at the airport, a situation neither of us were very used too, as there have been very few flights we haven’t taken together since being married 😜

He was long past due a visit home though and I held no grudge about him going alone πŸ˜‰
(See if I still say that after he sends me some meal photos 😜)

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 😊
