My Life Today ……………………………….. in pictures! Can’t chat!

Spring Cleaning ……… RESPECT!

My reality!

‘Moi’ at the end of the day ………….

So it’s a quickie post today!

When I was in Cape Town for the shooting of the Dinner Divas Show Daniele invited a few friends over for drinks and a light dinner.  I really didn’t have much time to spare to prepare the usual two course meal and all I could muster, from his sparse cupboards and fridge was a dressed Camembert, a piece of beef fillet to make some  Beef Carpaccio which was served with crusty breads, salads and some fabulous wine that I bought at a wine tasting in Kloof Street on a previous visit.

With so many friends popping in for drinks this Christmas, a dressed Camembert can literally be on the table in all its ‘gooey’ glory in a matter of minutes!

  3. I am going on holiday now, so do you think when i get back we can arrange a time suitable to both of us for a “Spring Clean”. This looks divine and my sons love chamambert so this could be a good idea but without the pancetta

  4. Love the honey that is dripping on the side!

    • Thanks Pinks – I am suuuch a little honey-bee! It’s a far healthier option to the traditional sugar glaze! and much tastier! Have an awesoem week xxxx
