Long weekend rugby, movies and pulled-pork/bacon poppers

How do you improve on what’s already wonderful as it’s a long weekend? With chilli poppers, of course. And if they’re wrapped in bacon and stuffed with pulled pork and cream cheese, all the better.

That’s one of my highlights from last (long) weekend – see more below…

Saturday, 25 April 2015: Best chilli poppers, supporting the Stormers

It was really chilly last weekend - feel it, Winter is here. And so, a chai latte was in order when we went to the Riverway Cafe to try their famed 'piggy poppers' - R58 buys you 6 extremely hot chillis stuffed with a pulled pork/cream cheese mix and wrapped in bacon. My goodness they were amazing.

The piggy poppers, in all their glory. Well worth the trip to Hout Bay.

Oh, just hanging with the team, you know. Pip pip, old chap. We were lucky enough to sit in the Ogilvy box for the Stormers/Blue Bulls rugby match and squealed with delight when our team won!

And then! On our way out the bellows of the building we saw these cardboard cutouts and could not resist. Spot Husband at the back right. Teehee.

Sunday, 26 April 2015: Bakery breakfasts, afternoon movies and doggie Milo

Sunday breakfast - one of the nicest French toast croissant efforts ever. This was at Ou Meul Bakkery at Willowbridge Shopping Centre, opposite the main Tygervalley Mall. Scrumptious with their homemade berry compote and fresh slices of banana.

Husband's choice was just as tasty, with avo, poached egg, bacon and more.

Tummies purring we headed to Grandwest casino where we spent our winnings on movie things - here I am with the Minions poster (movie not out yet, we watched the Avengers instead).

We then spent a few hours on housework, which sent my nose into a tizz, I was sneezing all day long, hence looking a bit sleepy in this photo - loved my Horlicks milkshake at Cubana, complete with a cherry in the glass.
