Somewhat productive

Our tidy front garden

Coconut Macaroons

Pistachio Biscotti

This weekend has been somewhat productive in the Off the Peg household. I haven't done any sewing but hubby and I have tackled (some of) the unruly garden, and I have been baking up a storm today.
Yesterday we braved the cold and wet to finish clearing out our front garden and lay down a heap of organic mulch to hopefully keep the weeds at bay. Its the first time in about 4 years that our front garden is looking a bit tidy and cared for (terrible I know!). Now to tackle the backyard!
And today I felt like a spot of baking, so I made some yummy coconut macaroons and a batch of pistachio biscotti. It's the first time I have made either of these recipes so they need a little bit more perfecting but the results are quite delicious.


  1. mmmm, looks good! Productivity must be contagious, I managed to get a fair bit done today too. No sewing...though I did cut out 12 squares. Yay me!

  2. Mmmmmmmm yum two of my favourite things...coconut and pistachio!

  3. Those coconut macaroons look delicious. Just what I need to go with my cup of tea!!
