Hotdogs, Hodgepodge and …Happy Birthday!

Now that’s a Maritimer’s Feast and Andrew’s request for dinner tonight.

“Mom can you guys all come up for dinner and a campfire tonight…and can you make hodgepodge?”

SURE! But with the weather unpredictable we ended up having dinner at our house and postponing our camp fire plans.

New potatoes, green and yellow beans, sweet peas and new carrots with butter and cream…YUM!!!! This time of year everyone wants a little taste of what we maritimers call hodge podge! A visit to the market and I had lots of veggies.

And because this was the first night everyone was off and could be here, we waited and had James’ Happy Birthday cake tonight. A special cake this year for a boy who says he NEVER gets a cake!

What a great evening with family 🙂

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
