Its been a while that is for sure….. and with this year nearly over and Food24 having done this lekker move to WordPress, it was time for me to finally get my act together again and see wahts cooking out there!
2011 has been a busy year and wonderful year. I finally moved back from Stellenbosch to Hout Bay which is where I hail from and told the tenants in my house to .. go Sadly after 2 years away house and garden were a total mess and its taken lots of elbow grease and tlc to get everything back into shape again.
After house and garden were back to normal my friend Monique from Belgium organised for 2 industrial Belgian Waffle making machines to be sent to Cape Town. After much experimenting with different kinds of recipes, I found the perfect ones for the Brussel’s waffle maker and then also for the other machine which makes waffles on a stick !!. Never having “done” any market before, it was with quite a bit of nerves that I took this step and started off at the Hout Bay Lions market which is taking palce every Sunday for the past 25 years. Despite the chilly weather I was thrilled to survive the first day and yay! even doing very well….
During this past year I also held quite a number of “home dinner parties” for American tourists… ranging from 8 to 24 people. I love doing this as one meets the most diverse sort of folks and well its just so nice to see how thrilled these total strangers always are to be welcomed into a SA home with kids, dogs and cats and be treated really just like friends….
So all this is probably my lame excuse for not having taken the time to sit down and write on my blog for the past couple of months. However exiting things in the line of food are about to happen in the new year which I will be sharing with you again.
I am also so thrilled that all my “old blogger friends” are still around producing the most amazing delicious dishes and blogs .
have a great weekend all and definitely see you again next week !!!!!
