You know, there's only one bad thing about long weekends... it's that Friday comes round again WAY faster than usual... though, that's not such a bad thing when it means the weekend is fast approaching!
Nevertheless, I have heaps to share with you so let's jump right into it!
Here's what's been happening in our world recently >>
Recent Frustration: Trixie and her ball... as always...
Think I'm kidding? This is the scene that happens 30420340230420 times a day in our house.
Seriously, she's pathetic :P
Recent Throwbacks: Luckily we still have photos of when she was cute and not obsessed with balls to reminisce over :P LOOK AT THE CUTE LITTLE BABY PUPPY WUPPY! <3
Recent Successes: CHECK THIS BREAD OUTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT, yo! I have finally mastered crusty homemade gluten free bread - and I went one up on that and made this batch vegan too.
I'll have to share the recipe with you soon as we are OBSESSED. It's kind of like a sourdough/market style bread and it's seriously delicious!
My Dad and I built a camera rig on the weekend and it is seriously ridiculously awesome. Stay tuned for what I'm going to do with it ;)
Recent Laughs: Twister! Jesse and I busted out Twister on Friday to kick the long weekend off with a bang. Why? Because Jesse told me I'd lose and I wasn't about to let him believe that.
Ummmmmm... guess who won, friends?
I was beast moding twister whilst Jesse's legs were shaking like a leaf in a hurricane :P
Pick your battles, friends.
Recent Joy: Shopping for Operation Christmas Child! Jesse slept in on Sunday (we'd babysat on Friday until really late and daylight savings started so we lost an hour too) and we missed church so we headed to the shops to fill out OCC boxes! This year we went for all boys (last year we did all girls) and it was so much fun!
Recent Laughs: This True Blue Aussie Mate ;) Apparently I confused some of you in the US as you had no idea what I was talking about here - but this, my friends is a magpie defence device.
Or so I'm told...
You see, in Spring, magpies (a bird) getting UBER protective of their little babies and viciously swoop down and peck anyone they think is a threat. Apparently if you wear a helmet with spikes (or cable ties) they won't swoop you but I can't attest to that :P
I just know that I've only ever been swooped once in my life (and you watch me write to you next week with my head cut open from 34020302340 magpie attacks :P)
Recent Obsession: PUMPKIN SPICE PEANUT BUTTER! It arrived on Friday and the first thing I did was stick my spoon in it and oh mama is it good ;)
It's got just the right amount of spice - not too much that it's overwhelming but not too little that you can't tell what it is. You can't taste the "real pumpkin" it highlights on the packaging but you can taste the deliciousness ;)
Buy it, my friends!
Recent Posts: This week on the blog I shared our favourite Healthy Creamy Asparagus Pasta Sauce Recipe as well as the best Healthy Paleo Pumpkin Bread Recipe. On Wednesday I also got down to the nitty gritty of palm oil and talked about Good vs Bad Palm Oil: Is there a Difference? It may feel like a buzz word but it's actually important to learn about the facts - and there's some awesome news in that post too!
But tell me, how has your week been?
Have you had any recipe successes this week?
And what's your favourite board game?
We love scrabble and I don't think Jesse will ever be busting out the Twister again, haha!
