My Photo
Location: Katoomba, NSW, Australia

here I am in a little cottage that evokes the energies of my ancestral lands - a cottage on the moors of Cornwall, or on the cliff tops of Ireland or Scotland. It has a hearth. I am a hedge witch {of sorts}. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. I am a gypsy; an eccentric and a mystic [I often live with a foot in two worlds]. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. Star watcher and Moon gazer. story cloth weaver. keeper of family dreams and wishes. good friend and creator of life. herbal tea drinker and potion maker.

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

just life stuff

do you plan your week's menu? Gina patra's other place does......... which got me thinking. You see, I don't have a huge freezer, I have a two door fridge/freezer which is fine for most things but I can't fit a cow in there, so I buy my meat/chicken/fish almost daily. And it works for me. I usually plan my menu and always have the staples in my pantry. But I also don't have a microwave (I don't want one) nor do I have a cappucino machine, which in my book is an absolute necessity and is on my must have before I die list......

Oh heavens no! I am a wing it kind of girl. However there are only two of us. I think that you should go with what you are used to and makes you feel good. I sure wouldn't mind being invited over for dinner.

Hugs, Connie

When William is home or there are others here to eat besides me I have menus planned for every meal. When I am here alone I just decide at the last minute

Hi Robyn,just stopping by to say hi! Hope all is going well,by the way Sophie is just gorgeous!
I don't plan a weekly menu,we just sort of use up what we have around.

Yes a cappuccino machine would be awesome, my dad has one and it makes the most divine drinks. I must say that I also plan my meals, it's easier for when I go shopping so that I know what to get.

You must have read my response at Gina's blog yeah? I really don't plan well - I like to get lots of fresh vegies and salad stuff so I'm more of a 'decide on the day and go to the shops when I do' kind of gal!

Sophie is gorgeous, and the smile was worth it - I just had braces off for the *second* time (had them in my teens too) before we left the UK - next stop is gettin them bleached...

Great idea Robyn, linking to my blog on this subject! I am finding it great fun to read everybody's thoughts about their meals planning (or lack of it!).
We don't have a dedicated freezer either - just a two door fridge, and I can only fit a couple of weeks worth of icecream, frozen peas, and meat in there. I know most people do it these days, but personally I abhor the idea of having a whole animal carved up and frozen in a huge freezer. I know once it's cooked you can't tell how long it was frozen for, but just the thought...
I do have a microwave, but not a dishwasher. But eat your heart out, ducky - we do have a cappucino machine - lol!

I wish I did plan more often than I normal do. The weeks that I do I feel so much better.

Wow! no microwave...I use mine SO much, and love it. No, I don't plan ahead much, and I love meals that go together quickly. We try to eat lots of fresh vegetables. My husband is wonderful...not a picky eater at at all, and he is very good at stuffing a chicken or turkey. Aren't I blessed..lol!

I'm with Dolly on this one - right down to recipezaar! It's one of my fave sites for inspiration on my dinner planning. My grocery bill is so much cheaper when I plan my menus for the week.
