...and got to peruse this beautiful view..
Well, I didn’t really look at it that much to be honest, because I was either reading a book, or checking K wasn’t getting into trouble, or getting pestered by this friendly face...
(the reason half his nose isn't in the picture is because he'd stuffed it so close I couldn't get it in! He'd be on my lap if he was allowed!)
He has a one-track mind “throw the ball, throw the ball, throw the ball”
Nice shot of a trike begging to be ridden on.
I will post the answer in my next post!
Hope you had a grand weekend too!!
p.s. and I even washed my car yay!

(ok to start with, for some reason this post is all underlined, I can't be bothered figuring out how to fix it - so let's just call it a great design addition!)
I keep seeing yummy recipes that use frozen berries lately, so I decided I’d grab some when I did groceries last time.
Of course, when I came to look for a recipe they were hard to come by for some reason?! Lots of berry smoothies, berry icecream, berry slushies – but no warm, winter-loving berry anything! Until I found a little gem of a recipe here! (I did embellish it a little, adding a handful of chocolate buttons with the berries) (FYI - 2oz butter = 50g)
Mmmmm and it tasted GOOD! After I served it up with a (large) dollop of icecream, I was going to take a photo. But then I couldn’t be bothered because I just wanted to eat it!
So this is what your plate would look like AFTER you’ve eaten it - tehe.
And this is what it looks like in the dish.
So there you have it. A DELISH pudding full of chocolate berry goodness! Great for a winters evening (or a summers evening, or any evening for that matter haha!)
p.s. just as an aside - check out the size of this garlic!! Ok, so the onion IS small, but still - it's HUGE!! I think they call this 'elephant garlic', which is usually a lot milder, but this sucker was potent as well as huge! YIKES!

Luckily for me I’m a bit of a frugal person and will only buy stuff I really need and would have bought anyway! Mostly.
A friend introduced me to this wonderous site a while back and it has become a regular habit to check what’s on sale every day. Living where I do (in the middle of nowhere)
