I had a wonderful weekend again!!
We were fortunate enough to go to the Cheese Festival at Bien Donne on Saturday, the 25th. Although the weather was not very nice (it rained almost the whole day) we have enjoyed the day tremendously. We all wore our rain boots and with the help of umbrellas we survived the rain and cold. We looked at a cooking demonstration of the delightful Nataniël, which, as always, was highly entertaining. He made the most beautiful tartlets, which seemed very easy to make and I am definitely going to make his Leek and Cheddar Tortilla for breakfast this coming weekend. After this session we all were very hungry, and unfortunately, since we were a large group, and the festival was packed and very crowded, it took forever to get something to eat (that suited everyone), so we missed Jenny Morris’s cooking demo. We sampled lots of cheese, wines and other delicacies and it was a most enjoyable outing!!
I cooked a nice stew for lunch on Sunday. My Sister-in-law and her family that live inDelftinHollandarrived on Sunday night and we welcomed them with cinnamon sugar pancakes.
On Monday, after breakfast, that consisted of Bacon, eggs, fried tomato and toast, we drove via Seapoint, Clifton, etc to Houtbay and from there via Constantia to Simonstown. We had lunch at Bertha’s in Simonstown. After lunch we went to Boulders Beach and their children was thrilled to see so many penguins. It was a wonderful drive.
This whole week will be spending showing them all the nice places inCape Townand surrounds. It is very nice to do the tourist-thing again and I feel very, very blessed and fortunate to be able to do so many wonderful things!!
