2 posts in one day!
A blog that I’ve read for many years, Down to Earth by Rhonda Hetzel is featuring our favourite places and spaces. Today, I’m lucky enough to be included. This place, here in beautiful Georgian Bay is where my family and I choose to live a simple, off the grid life for as long as the season will allow. One day when the children have grown, we hope to live here for half of each year. There is lots of knitting, reading. Lego, swimming and family time that we are able to fill our summers with. I’m lucky enough to have a flexible job that allows me to work remotely during the summer and different work during the school year when we return to our home in the city.
Since it can take three hours for a round trip to town for groceries, we try to plan accordingly. I stock baking supplies and pantry staples and I or my husband cook or bake every meal. There is no take out option!
In honour of possible new readers from the d2e blog, and also to use up a bit of the zucchini crop my MIL planted, I tried a new recipe for our coffee time today. Chocolate Zucchini bread – I used the recipe from here – and it turned out beautifully. Mine was not a double chocolate version as I omitted the chocolate chips. I don’t think anyone will miss them if I don’t say anything.
