Peanut Butter Chips

When I came back from summer break, I brought many types of chocolate chips with me. I have been trying to figure out how to use the peanut butter ones in a new way for a while. Being on Easter Break, while almost everyone else is still in school, I have a lot of spare time on my hands. Today, I decided to bake a little and found a recipe for eggless chocolate chip and cinnamon bread.

Here is how it turned out:

I think they taste pretty good.

I am trying to think of what else to make this week, I am making the trip to the market tomorrow.

Canada Hungary

Today was a day for me to teach about Canada. I think it went well. I tried to cover as much information as possible while still trying to make it interesting and fun for the kids. We made some flags and tomorrow we will make antlers.

Also, you know you live in a village when there are chickens running around the school yard. ( this has happened twice this week, I find it amusing when the chickens try to go back on the other side of the gate )

This weekend was quite a way to start spring. The weather was amazing, a big change from last week, about an 18 degree difference. It finally felt nice to be outside when the sun was shining and there was no ice and snow.

Ice cream has also returned. The real acknowledgment that Spring is here.

Go outside. Enjoy the sun. Smile.

March 15th weekend

This is the 2nd year I have been outside of Hungary for March the 15th. I was able to attend our school ceremony this year, so I did get a feel for the day. It was a nice ceremony, lots of poems, songs and acting.

I went to Krakow again, this time with a Hungarian group. I was really looking forward to being back in Krakow because I loved being there for Easter last year. This year, it really just wasn't the same. The weather was either rainy or snowy and freezing cold. Jamie wasn't with me, and I was with a bunch of people who didn;t try talking to me because they though I didn't know any Hungarian. Joke is on them because I understood most of what they were saying, especially when it was about me. The time sitting on a bus is what really got to me. We left at 6am on Saturday and spent the next 10.5 hours driving. Sunday, luckily we got a break from sitting on the bus. Monday, I dreaded the most. We had to drive back to Auschwitz, the opposite direction of our way home, drive back close to the city and then start the way home. All in all, we were probably sitting on the bus for 14 or 15 hours. It was crazy, I don't want to sit on a bus again.

This week it really started settling in that I only have 3 more months here. I can't imagine leaving and going back to life at home. I will miss everyone here, but most of all, my 2a kids. I don't know what I will do when I won't be going into school everyday and seeing them.

I know this seems like a sad post, but hopefully after this weekends langos and palacsinta party, it will be a much happier blog.

Random sighting of the day

Today, while I was waiting for the bus, I saw a man on his way to the town hall. This was really something. He was riding a horse, and talking on his phone.

I don't know why it was so weird to see this, but I guess I just don't associate riding a horse and talking on a cell with each other.

I wasn't the only one who found it weird. Everyone else waiting for the bus watched too, with confused looks on their face.

Canada is Golden

The past couple weeks, I was really grateful to have my TV with cable. I was able to watch many of the events, even with the time difference.

The past weekend, I was up very watching two important Gold medal events for Canada. We won both. The curling game definitely was not as exciting as the hockey game, but in both events, the teams played very well.

I have been really missing my winter sports since coming to Hungary, but I was able to get my fill for a while.

Every athlete deserves congratulations and I am really looking forward to being back in Canada for the next winter season.
