serene sundays...

Sundays are a time for sleeping in, having late, long and wholesome breakfasts, sipping tea, reading the paper, planning the meals for the week, trips to the market, mending, cleaning, reorganizing, recharging, spending time with family and friends, reading books, playing in parks, taking naps in the sun, baking bread or any of the above in combination.
In light of this, I will categorize my Sunday entries as “serene sundays” and put up photos that describe my mood, thoughts, ideas, inspiration or general weekend goings-on, instead of writing an entire entry.

After a few budgeting tips (thank you!) today was all about
homemade preparation for the week...

pasta sauce, hummus and beetroot dip


bread

soft cheese- in the process


A lot of brow wiping going on in this kitchen today. I would have liked to whip up something sweet for the week, but I think it's time to put my feet up. Hope you had a beautiful weekend with those you love.

What is on top of your cheese?

You were busy! My daughter and I do a similar thing on Mondays. We try and bake meals for the next few days and prepare all our snack foods such as hommus and crackers. I also bake a huge pile of veges - and use them in sandwiches and salad over the next few days.

Isn't home made beetroot dip yummy!

Fruit is loaded on top of the cheese so that there is added weight and the whey comes out of the yogurt.

Thanks! I thought it looked like fruit... I've just never seen it used to weight anything down before!! When I made labna, for the first time the other day, I didn't weigh it down at all, so just trying to find out how others do it! I love labna, but next time, I will only put a tiny amount of garlic in!
