Weekending







Fine weather and the whole family at home for the official start of New Zealand's summer.
  • Pottering around in the vegetable garden, I picked my first handful of green beans - my favourite variety,  that I grow each year is Shiny Fardenlosa
  • Warmer evenings are leading to more lighter salad type meals -couscous with broad beans and my freshly picked beans, carrot salad, tomatoes and pita breads
  • Baking sweet treats for school lunchboxes - a new caramel slice recipe with chopped hazelnuts.
  • Christmas card making (lots of pinspired ideas here)
  • A sewing finish of sorts - 80 four patch blocks have been sewn up for this quilt in progress
What did you do this weekend?
Have you started to decorate forChristmas yet?

  2. Beautiful beans! I've only just tried growing things this year with a little success but a lot of failure. Hoping the next growing season goes better.
    The chocolate frosted banana cake from one of your previous posts looks yummy! Now searching for a recipe :)
