these days

We are so eager to be out of doors that we bring out snacks our whenever we can.

Are so happy to see a bit of virgin green peaking out of the dead branches of our thyme.

Were surprised when winter came to visit us for one last time....I think.

Are spending countless hours feeding grain to our ewe, Miss Ella, who will give birth in a few short weeks. I can hardly wait!

Are so, so happy that the sap is running over from our few, plump maple trees. Maple syrup may very well be one of my favorite things!

bread spoons

I adore these five measuring spoons which give a baker the correct quantities of flour, water, yeast, sugar and oil to bake a loaf of bread. They were created by Niels Datema while studying at the Design Academy Eindhoven. Perfect.

baked oats

In my on going quest to find new oat recipes for breakfast I stumbled upon this one for baked oats. Of course, I ended up getting the cookbook from which it is from and it is full of many more dishes for me to try (It's been added to my cookbook list in the sidebar). We used chopped almonds instead of walnuts which was very nice. I can imagine eating the oats with a dollop of thick greek yogurt or fancy creme fraiche and yesterday I brought home some coconut milk and thought I might just try baking the oats in it. When I make it for a weekday breakfast I find it helpful to have all of the dry ingredients mixed together the night before so I can rather quickly assemble the whole dish. It is so easy but needs to bake for about 35 minutes which can feel like a long wait for hungry bellies!

Wallpaper taking on a whole new meaning. I think it is wonderful. Do you have wallpaper in your house?

oatmeal pancakes

Delicious oatmeal pancakes made from all of the extra cooked oatmeal we have some days (or from times when we have soaked oats overnight and then wake craving something else for breakfast!) They were, of course, really good with maple syrup and nice with a dab of blackberry jam too. The recipe is from this wonderful cook book. 

Hope this finds you all well!
