I’m linking up for another fun week of peeking in each other’s kitchens! You can check out the rest of the great blog hop over at Beauty That Moves.
:: another spin on the superfood salad. J’s family is here visiting us (hurrah!) and they brought a little americana with them… N is loving it! ::
:: grilled salmon with a maple tamari glaze, adapted from here. try it, I think you’ll love it as much as we do ::
:: found ourselves with an abundance of milk and decided to have a go at making yogurt. seriously easy and tasted great! we’ve changed our milk order to have an extra 2 liters delivered each week so we can keep up the practice, yum! and yep, we have a milkman… isn’t that fantastic?! ::
:: chocolate pavlova with strawberries, whipped cream and nutella. you can find the recipe here. ::
It has been a busy few weeks getting ready for guests, wrapping up the end of term activities with N, and catching up with friends before we all head in various directions over the summer. Good, full days that leave you tired out in the best ways. J’s parents and brother and sister-in-law arrived this past weekend for a two week visit. It is such a blessing to have family that will travel all this way to spend time with us. And little N is beside himself to have so many loving adults at his beck and call. They’ve all flown over because tomorrow J officially graduates with his PhD in Ethics and Practical Theology. He earned his degree last fall, but put off the actual ceremony until this summer because his family all wanted to be here to celebrate, and July is a much nicer time to visit Edinburgh than November. This is such a big day in the life of our family. We’ve been working our way to this moment for over ten years now, in three different countries, on two continents. Pretty surreal to officially no longer be students, as one or the other of us has been working on graduate degrees since we got married! I, for one, could not be a prouder wife. It’s really something to get to walk along side your best friend on such a long, and sometimes difficult journey, and to now be on the other side together. This is a milestone that I want to savour, and having family here to add to the festivities makes it all that much sweeter. Little N (who is not the biggest fan of doctors) proudly walks around cheering for ‘Dada Doctor Teacher’. He’s worked out that J isn’t the kind of doctor you visit when you’re sick, but is still trying to sort out, what, exactly, it is that Papa does all day. To quote a friends’ precocious little one whose father is also a theologian, “He’s a doctor, but not the kind that helps people.”
