WIAW - Back at home

Wow, I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've been home and enjoying the weather and sunshine and doing as little as possible. You see, unlike the rest of the world in Winter, except for other countries close to the Equator, my little home town does not have a season that resembles winter. It actually hit 30 degrees the other day. In winter. Don't get me wrong, the mornings are cold, but by 10 o'clock, you are back to wearing shorts and t-shirts and avoiding the sun. I have sunburn. Seriously.

So here is this week's WIAW. A big thanks as usual to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting this lovely event. This is my day on Sunday.

At 6 o'clock I had a lovely piece of toast with plum preserves, as I was going to play tennis with my Dad and I wanted to have eaten something. This was unpictured.

We played tennis from about 8 - 10 and came back. We made banana and pineapple pancakes for breakfast and ate these around 10:30. The recipe will be coming soon - you won't believe how healthy and filling these are! I was so sore from playing tennis - it was the first bit of exercise I had done in weeks and it certainly was a workout. I couldn't walk for two days, my shins were killing me.

Lunch was a simple ham and cheese sandwich on white bread. This is not my usual lunch - I am usually more creative. But since coming home this has been on the lunch menu every day - usually with freshly squeezed orange juice (oranges from our backyard) or milo. I know, I know, healthy, right? Makes me feel like a kid again.

Dinner was fajitas. On this baby was beef, onion, capsicum, fajita sauce, sour cream, tomato sauce and cheese. It was amazing.

And there was, surprise, a bowl of Weetbix (unpictured).

I hope you are all having a lovely week! I'm off to write a chapter of a story I'm working on. It's about time I got back into it.


  1. Weetbix reminds me of my dad because he used to always eat it, it was his favorite. Sounds like a wonderful day!

  2. Can't wait for the pancake recipe. Banana and pineapple sounds like a winning combination :)

  3. The pancake recipe sounds awesome....I am always looking for good ones! I can't wait to see it!

  4. Happy WIAW to you! :)

  5. I've never had pineapple in pancakes before but it sounds really good! :)

  6. fajitas for dinner always make me so happy :)

  7. I'm glad that you're having a great time back at home. Those pancakes look amazing and decadent!


    When you come back, we should go for coffee some time! Always good to meet new Brisvegas people :P

  8. White bread sandwiches remind me of childhood as well!
    My mom always used to pack one piece of bologna on white bread.
    Definitely not my favorite lunch, but it sure does remind me of elementary camp!

  9. It's so odd to think that you have winter when we have summer! My mom always preferred half-whole wheat homemade bread, so a cheddar cheese sandwich on her homemade bread reminds me of my youth :) Good for you for getting back into writing! I hadn't properly written in a few months and just picked it up again a few days ago. It's slow starting, but at least it's starting!


  10. Love bananas and pineapples in pancakes! It reminds me of all those fun (and terribly unhealthy) syrups at IHOP:)
