- Storage: They have a huge amount of storage space underneath. We store practically everything there; bedding, cooking supplies, tools and paint, toys and so much more.
- Sitting: Since the shabin is only 8 feet wide, the side-by-side daybeds are ideal living room seating. We can even fit a folding table between the benches, perfect for playing a board game.
- Sleeping: Our shabin is so tiny, the daybeds aren’t exactly single-bed sized. However, they are fine for anyone sleeping in a sleeping bag, particularly if you’re a child.
We love going to our little shabin in the winter. However, at 100 sq. ft. there’s really not a lot of space to hang out inside. So it’s really important for us to have a fire going outside for most of the day in order to stay warm.
When my food blog Fermenting For Foodies became popular, I was approached by two different publishers interested in doing a cookbook with me. One of them primarily published ebooks, the other was a major international publisher with over 20 imprints. Obviously, I was excited about the opportunity to work with the major publisher.
I’ll admit that this pie isn’t so much Tex-Mex as 1980’s Canadiana comfort food that my mom would serve as a week-night meal.
