Here is what I have been up to!
The joys of seasonal eating! Pears baked in a caramel sauce for dessert. Cost next to nothing and tasted soooooo good!
I have been menu planning for a long time and just recently have started scheduling a meatless meal. So far no one has commented so I don't know if that's because they haven't noticed or because they don't care cause its so yummy! Part of this is about me wanting to increase the quantities of vegetables and slightly decrease the meat portion and really decrease the white carbs (pasta, bread) in our evening meals.
While increasing the vege consumption, I'm also trying to buy my all these veges as ethically as I can. I am ordering from Food Connect and buying from Farmers Markets when I can.
I got told about an organic farm not far from me a little while ago and today I was practically driving past it so I popped in to see what it was all about. Imagine my surprise to find my Landlord from over fifteen years ago was the Farmer!!! Great to catch up with her, great to bring home local organic veges!
My new baby chookies are what's growing this month! These are Brahma chickens, about 4-5 month old. They are almost the same size as my fully grown chooks and still have some growing to do! They are a large soft feather breed. I got them from a local breeder who was selling off his colour rejects as pets. I thought they were just beautiful!
I have been enjoying playing with my new camera down at the dam... Creating images, just for me!
I'm reading lots of vegetarian and vegan cookbooks in order to find interesting recipes so I can increase the amount of vegetable in our diet. Lots of interesting ideas and some fun meals!
This hasn't been a good month for community, I cant think of a single thing for this category...
This one is my addition to the 9. I have been setting myself wee challenges that improve my life over the month. I have gone carless one day a week, stopped buying anything but petrol from a petrol station, paid out my credit card, and tried to exercise more.
As always I enjoy popping over to see what other slow livers are up to. Sometimes I can't get past the security things (You know, put in the letters or numbers thingos) but even if you cant see my comment, know I have been and enjoyed!
Thanks for the opportunity to share again Christine!!! Have a great month everyone! - Kxx
