Epic show

My Love Affair with Cape Town...

Just for the record, I’m going to state this upfront:  Noooo, I am not a little monster. 🙂  BUT I did suspect that someone as weird & wonderful as Lady Gaga would be the kind of artist to put on one hell of a live show.  And boy was I right.  This was an experience worth every single cent I paid for my ticket.

On the day, I was running late because of work & the nightmare traffic and all that (I do work all the way out in the Northerns after all), but this seemed to give my Bjorn some extra time to really get into that Monster’s Ball vibe.  I will admit that his look startled me at first and also totally creeped out quite a few people on our walk from Sea Point to the stadium, but by the time we got to the concert, he was…

Anyone who pours more chocolate goodness over a gooey brownie is a hero in my books.

We’re off to see the Wizard!

It was a very, very early morning as we left for Porterville  A slow start with the crack of dawn crowd on the way to work, but very well worth it when we finally closed in on the small town.

A cup of coffee down we started taking photo’s of Steve’s setup

There must be very few chefs in the Cape who don’t know about Steve and his produce.  Awesome micro herbs and a variety of vegetables and more covers the plots and provided us with plenty of photo opportunies.

I’ve been meaning to go and have a look at what Steve does for quite some time and I’m glad I gave up my usual off day sleep-in to do just that.

Sunday mornings

I love my Sundays. After a awesome (sometimes wrecking) week I love a good lie in.

With everything I need around me fighting for a spot, its pretty damn comfortable. Stacks of magazines, my laptop perched, the cup of coffee that I pretend magically appeared by itself. This is my time to check out whats new and happening. Wouldn’t give it up for anything and anyone.
Admittedly, the only things missing is cinnabuns fresh out of the oven.

Note to self: Don’t forget about the pastries for next time.


My happy place

Life and times baby, life and times.  There are very few things in this world that I care more about than food.  I love everything about it.  The sheer enjoyment that comes from a dish prepared with love and passion, the blood, sweat and tears that often forms part of a bad service, the way a good service just lifts you up and makes you feel good about the whole world again.  The way it brings people together no matter how far apart they are. The kitchen is my happy place and to me, it is exactly where I should be.
