This was our breakfast this morning...
Mark cooked us poached eggs for breakfast this morning using produce from the garden. Eggs from our hens, tatsoi leaves, tomatoes and basil on top of our own sour dough bread. A very satisfying feeling.We often joke about what our meals would cost if we ate them in a restaurant. At home they cost us very little and we are always more pleased with the home cooked version. Not that we are great cooks but probably because of the ingredients. Mostly home grown, freshly picked and grown with love. Not to mention the love that goes into cooking the meals. Oh and we really do enjoy simple food or peasant food as we call it.
We have been on a bit of a break from everything. Not the farm of course as it needs constant attention. All the animals need to be checked throughout the day to make sure that they are coping with the heat. Our live in helper has moved on to be with the love of her life and we have had to take up the slack.We've enjoyed a quiet Christmas and New Year, stopped the food boxes for a week and relaxed. I read books and Mark has watched the cricket. It's been a struggle to get back here and write wondering what I want to write and how I want this space to look this year. I have some thoughts and we'll see how it pans out.
I have managed to read my favourite blogs but don't seem to have had the energy to even comment there. Sorry to all my dear friends out there in blogger land. I will get back to my usual self shortly.
I will leave you with a link to a blog that I have just discovered. http://meadoworchard.blogspot.com.au/
I've enjoyed her musings on simple living and where she's at with the whole concept.
Good to be back and we'll talk again soon.
