Apple and sqaush bake- Thank you Mennonite Girls!

You might know about Meat Free Mondays. If not, you can read about it here

I was in search of a vegetarian recipe for Monday night's supper and decided to have a look on the Mennonite Girls can cook blog. I found a recipe for a lovely recipe veggie curry which you can find here
I made a curry, but used the veg I had in my fridge.

And I found a lovely side dish for Tuesday night's roast chicken. Apple and Squash bake. I used a butternut. I could not get hold of any peacans, but I decided to add some ground cinnamon and nutmeg. It was absolutely delicious and I will definitely be making it again! I even had an urge to eat it with vanilla custard!
You can find the recipe here

Thank you to the Mennonite girls! I love your blog (and your individual blogs) and will be trying many more of your recipes in the future!

Bloggers block

I will attempt to blog on a more regular basis from now on, although I am a little unsure of content at times. I am still waiting for my light bulb moment. I'm not really sure I know where this blog is going. I have been told by more experienced bloggers, that the more I write, the more things will come to me, and the more my content will improve and that I should not think about things too hard.

I find reading other people's blogs very inspiring, but when I sit down and begin a new post, I tend to lose my mojo and wonder why I am doing this! Who could possibly be interested in what I have to say?! How can my blog I make a difference in someone else's life?

I have been thinking about it a bit, and some of the things I would like to achieve are to improve my descriptive writing. I often have all these creative thoughts and have no idea how to put them into words. I would like to showcase our beautiful country and perhaps make a positive difference in someone else's life, some how. These goals may change over time, but this is where I am at this point.

So, please bear with me on this journey. I hope that my content improves over time and that I do not bore you too much.

Back to normal

Greetings! Sorry for the long silence! It has been rather busy lately. I got married last month, and the months leading up to the wedding were quite busy and I could not focus on much else. Anyway, I am back now and am enjoying my life as a missus. The wedding was wonderful and our honeymoon was very relaxing. It took us about five days to come back down to Earth.

Summer is now in full swing and we have had some regular rain and some lovely thunder showers. Johannesburg is looking lovely, with a beautiful sea of green trees as far as the eye can see!

I am enjoying settling into our home and doing homey stuff. It's nice to be able to get back to doing the things I was doing before all the wedding planning. Hopefully I can finish one of my many projects before the end of the year.

That's all for now.
