This Little Piggy Went To Market…

09/12/21

 

After the late bedtime, he did sleep in until 10:30, so it wasn’t too terrible in the end 😅

Our hostess had a tasty spread of homemade bread, seasoned scrambled eggs, bacon and a sundry of other choices waiting for us ☺️

The kids were in school until early afternoon, so not long after we’d eaten, we headed to the nearby ‘Globus ’ grocery store. 
We’d been in it before, but it’s one of the largest grocery stores around, being known for its ‘American style’  in grand size and variety. 
It truly is a big store, Canadian, American or German 🤪

Having a huge grocery selection as well as all the other superstore style sections, baby, home, etc. 
Judith needed a few things, pork for supper being one such item on the list, but we also went specifically for a container she had shown me the previous day. A nifty little base with a detachable  top compartment, which would be perfect for the yogurt & granola Mike takes every day to work. 

We took our time there, having lots to look at and prices and selection to be in awe over, once more 😉 These aisles alone, being some cheese selections…

Euros to dollars mean things aren’t quite as cheap as they first appear, but not enough so to change the fact that SO many of the groceries are insanely affordable compared to what we’ve gotten used to back home. 
Lake got himself a free wurst at the meat counter, and he as well as we, were pretty thrilled with it 😜👌🏻

Once we left there, the kids were back from school and got to see Lake for a moment before it was his nap time and their homework time 😉

It was a beautiful day out and after a little sitting to enjoy it, I went and joined Lake in his nap, wanting to catch up on some of the sleep we’d been missing out on. 
When we awoke, Mike was hedge trimming, which is seriously something he really enjoys doing 😂👍🏻

Lake was entertained and lugged around via his cousins and Aunty for the following chunk of afternoon, pre-dinner 😉

We enjoyed a dinner of chicken, bread, oven baked rosemary potatoes, a couscous salad and pork belly.

A cut of meat my brother-in-law had been excited to try out and we, the willing and approving recipients 👌🏻😎

We kept Lake up late with us, trying to stretch the bedtime as long as we could, since we were up visiting anyway.

In the end, that backfired on us… big time 🥴

* I ask that you do your best to ignore any spelling mistakes, as on my iPad the set up is different and I can’t find an easy way to do a spelling / grammar check. Thank you for your understanding 🤪

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 😊
