Now that Nikita has moved clear across the world we try to video chat at least once a week.
Oddly (or maybe not) we usually chat while she is shopping. So Friday shopping with Nikita has become a thing.
This week she was hunting down the ingredients for pancakes (flat waffles)
No easy task when everything is Bulgarian (no rest for the English speakers) and they have several different types of flour.
She found classic flour. according to her. Not quite all purpose but did the job.
Here are the results of her Friday afternoon shopping trip!
Oh.. Sliced bacon is a novelty there. So finding it was a victory!
What a fun food challenge. Waffles.. Four different ways and pancakes all the way from Bulgaria.
Can't wait to see what next week has in store for us.

This week was my week so I chose Summer's last hurrah.. Mostly because I will be thankful for autumn and the cooler weather.
But I also thought it would be a great opportunity to celebrate the last week of summer in the Northern Hemisphere.
So I celebrated by keeping it simple and made sliders. Caramelized some onions and sliced an avocado and a slice of baby swiss cheese and slapped all that on a barbie doll sized beef burger. Add a side to tots and it made for a pretty tasty dinner.. You can eat two and not feel so guilty..
I have been reading a lot about Julia Child lately. Recently rewatched Julie and Julia. Her book My Life in France is due to arrive in the mail today. Not sure where it’s all coming from but we’re going with it. So, I took Mastering the Art of French Cooking off the shelf and made Tomates à la Provençale. I know its not very “Hurrah” but we have so many tomatoes. We grow them and people keep giving them to us. It’s crazy. This recipe is a very easy way to use a lot of tomatoes at one time. Also, it’s a great side dish to serve with pretty much anything and it’s filling. Bon appétit!
Nikita is just a few short weeks away from moving into their new apartment in Sofia.
She and I had an emotional filled face time the other day. Me because I got to see her face and hear her voice. Her.. Because they are living their dreams.
God is so good..
Monday is the first day of fall.. So we ended the hottest month with a bang.
Until next week,
Georgia, Amanda, Jen, Amy and Nikita
(Not surprisingly I poured in a little extra wine)
Nikita is still getting used to her temporary new home (they move into their apartment next month) in Sofia Bulgaria
I made this Ratatouille chicken in great hopes the husband would maybe eat it.
He ate the chicken and pasta.. He claims to like pretty much everything when it comes to food.
With the exception of, squash, zucchini, tomatoes...
You get the picture.
As for me. I really enjoyed it. I'm like Amy.. This is a great way to serve up summers last veggies.
Love, love, love how we are always trying new things..
Kudos to Amy for a fun new challenge.
Until next week,
Amy, Nikita, Georgia, Amanda and Jen
Nikita & Christopher are currently on a plane (plane 1) heading to their new home in Sofia Bulgaria. I pray for safe travels and am looking forward to seeing what new adventures she takes. And also I can't wait to see how this move changes her cooking.
Well. There you have it/ 4 very different meat pies.. But all are oh so delicious.
Until next week.
Jen, Amy, Nikita, Georgia and Amanda
