Things in life do not always work out according to plan, but I strongly believe that God’s plan is always better. I was planning to attend the Eat-Out produce awards at the Old Biscuit Mill on Friday night where it was announced that the very talented Anel Potgieter from the blog “Life is a Zoo biscuit” is the Food Blogger of the year.
BlondieGirl was however writing a test on Friday morning and asked me to fetch her at 13:00 in Stellenbosch. I left earlier since I first wanted to go to an Antique shop in Stellenbosch and arrived at 12:30. Just after one BG phoned me to say that there was a terrible fire the previous night in Kayamandi that left 600 families (about 3000 people) homeless. She is on the Student Committee and her portfolio is Community Service and she had to do some things to arrange for volunteers, etc to assist the people affected by the fire. She asked whether I would be prepared to wait and help her with the arrangements for approximately 2 hours. Of course I said yes. In the end she only finished just before 18:00, which meant we could not attend the awards. I was admittedly not too upset as it felt good to be able to assist some fellow South Africans – albeit in a small, minute way.
This afternoon was mostly spent on preparing the weekly menu – I am so grateful that I am able to do this! I have a house, food and many luxuries that loads of people in South Africa does not have!
The weekly menu:
Monday: Onion, Cheese and Thyme Quiche
Dessert of the week: Chocolate swissroll with orange mousse filling
Treat of the week: Unbaked brownies
