Pork belly-bacon benedict at Steenberg’s Bistro Sixteen82 and posing with Just Nuisance

Wowee. Second work week of the year done and dusted, and it feels like two months rather than two weeks since we were on leave. It’s a combination of intense heat, slow internet and sheer hard work. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have any highlights to share – view our latest batch below…

Saturday, 16 January 2016: Panama Jacks lunch, swimming in the icy Atlantic

Rolls at Panama Jacks
We do love lunching at Panama Jacks in the harbour. Always a treat to be served rolls before the food arrives…
Pasta at Panama Jacks
We each went with the fettuccini mains. Mine is the verde (green, R40) – asparagus, parmesan cheese, thin slivers of baby marrow. Husband had the marinara, (R50) with a mussel chowder starter (R25). He finished his, I had to bring mine home for dins!
Fettuccini at Panama Jacks
You’re not to admire my shiny forehead in this photo but just how well I twirled the fettuccini on my fork. Teehee.
Table Mountain seen from Blouberg
On the lazy ride home we had to stop at the beach. T’was like a postcard!
Swimming in the sea
And of course, Husband wasn’t content just to look at it. Here he is, frollicking in the waves.
Dog in plants
Much, much later, once the temperature had dropped a little, we took the doggies for a walk around the suburb. Bertie loves chasing things in the shrubs.

Sunday, 17 January 2016: Brunch at Steenberg’s Bistro Sixteen82

Bistro Sixteen82 at Steenberg Estate
On Sunday we woke late and couldn’t decide on a suitable spot to break our 12-hour fast. We eventually ended up at Steenberg Wine Estate and decided to treat ourselves to brunch at Bistro Sixteen82, known for its pork belly-bacon.
Bistro Sixteen82 chandelier
This colourful chandelier is quite something to see in person.
Flat white at Bistro Sixteen82.
Of course I started with a flat white. T’was delicious. Look at the gorgeous scenery behind me – all that green was very soothing on the eyes.
Honey brioche at Steenberg Estate's Bistro Sixteen82
What a lovely surprise. While waiting for our pork belly-bacon eggs benedicts, we were served hot, fresh honey brioche.
Oyster starter at Bistro Sixteen82
Of course Husband had an oyster starter. For breakfast…
Eggs benedict with pork belly-bacon
And then, the eggs benedict arrived. Oh. My. Goodness, was it delicious. The pork belly-bacon is amazing, the little tomatoes were steamy and the Hollandaise was just right. Plus they’re served on potato rosti instead of stodgy English muffins. At R72, that’s not bad at all!
Little boats in Simon's Town harbour
As we were already pretty far from home we decided to revisit Simon’s Town. These are some of the dinky little boats right at the harbour’s edge.
Just Nuisance statue in Simon's Town
Can’t visit Simon’s Town and miss taking a photo with the statue of Just Nuisance. Though he seems to have been moved somewhat since the last time we were there
Ice cream on the beach
Husband is one of the little ‘people dots’ floating in the sea. I sat on the beach with my book and a sugar cone instead.
Dog on chair
Bassie insisted on sitting on her Granny’s lap when we visited for lupper. Both grinned.
Onions on burger
As it was so hot, we had Do-It-Yourself burgers for dins. Husband placed his onion slices in pleasingly concentric circles on his patty.

Wednesday, 20 January 2016: Midweek sunset

Sunset
I caught the very end of the sunset – much more spectacular in real life!

That’s all, folks. Sounds like we’re in for a spot of rain this weekend, will bring welcome relief from the incessant heat!

September SEO studies, walks along the Cape coastline and lots of lattes

I’m now into the third week of my 10-week part-time course and my brain is positively overflowing with information that you may well see filtering across into this very blog’s design soon. Exciting! πŸ™‚

Other highlights from the past week include the first true glimpse of Spring 2015 for Cape Town – always a few weeks behind those of y’all upcountry, alas. See below…

Breakfast at Ilha, Woodbridge.
Some pre-brekkie grins at Ilha, Woodbridge Island on Saturday.
English breakfast at Ilha
Husband about to tuck in to his full English.
French toast breakfast at Ilha
You know I love French Toast! This is a stack with bacon and grilled banana, and a cafe latte on the side.
Long Island Ice Tea at Rockstar Diner, Cape Town
Much, much later that day, after Husband had done lots of cleaning and clearing (we visited the local dump twice and that final box that had sat in the garage since we first moved to Cape Town is gone).. plus after I finished my last assignment for the week, we treated ourselves to fancy drinks and burgers at the Rockstar Diner. This is Husband’s Long Island Ice Tea…
Burgers at Rockstar Diner, Cape Town
There we are with our burgers and big grins adorning our faces. You can just see my ‘strawberries and cream’ milkshake, as well as my cheese burger topped with a crumbed onion ring and Husband’s ‘magic mushroom’ burger.

Sunday, 13 September 2015: Breakfast and long walks along the West Coast

Cappuccino at Captain's Kitchen, Eden on the Bay.
First thing on Sunday, we headed to Eden on the Bay and dithered over where to eat. We started out at Captain’s Kitchen, where I had a strong cappuccino.
Coke at Captain's Kitchen, Table Mountain in the background
Husband had a Cola, of course. We then decided to walk “a little up the road” to see what else was on offer.
Blouberg rocks and a red ship
Walk and walk we did! All the way past the Blue Peter, Ons Huisie and the incoming sea. There’s a ship in the top left of the shot.
Walking on rocks by Table Mountain
See? As close as close can be to the sea. Actually I lie. We were walking in the sea later, and I very nearly got swept away when I stepped into a hole in the sand – luckily Husband was right there to rescue me and I only got soaked up to my knees.
Breakfast at Petit Fours, Blouberg
We ended up having breakfast at Petit Fours. Husband had this lovely poached egg concoction.
Tabasco sauce for breakfast
My favourite Boy and his favourite sauce.
Chai latte and mini cheese cake at Petit Fours
For me? This rather delightful mini cheesecake filled with salted caramel and sliced almonds, washed down with a Chai latte.
Sushi on Marine Circle, Blouberg
Later that afternoon we were back in the area and stopped off for a spot of sushi at Best of Asia on Marine Circle

Wednesday, 16 September: Dins at Fat Cactus, Woodstock

Fat Cactus, Woodstock post-work drinks
To celebrate my first assignment results, Husband met me down the road from work on Wednesday at the Fat Cactus
Espresso milkshake at Fat Cactus
For me? A super large espresso milkshake. There was enough in there to fill two glasses.
Pulled pork tacos at Fat Cactus, Woodstock
For Husband, the pulled pork, crispy tacos. He loves them
Rib basket at Fact Cactus, Woodstock
For me? The ‘starter’ rib basket. Husband helped me finish and we brought the rib bones home for the doggies.
Dog sitting on couch with teddybear
Later that night we gave Bertie the teddybear we’d rescued from the side of the road a while ago and cleaned first. He loves it.

Friday, 18 September 2015: SEO studies and delicious tea breaks

Poptarts and cappuccino and SEO study notes
I took the day off from work, so my Friday started like this – chocolate Poptarts and cappuccino breakfast while cluing myself up on the design aspects of SEO.
Chai latte and custart croissant at Carluccis, Blouberg
I had this for a brunch break later with the parents – custard-filled croissant and a large Chai latte. Yum!

That’s all, folks! The weekend ahead is set to be sunny yet windy, so who knows what my next blog update will have in store for you?

Charly’s Bakery, Argus cyclists and the many faces of Bassie Andrews

This past week? Whoosh. A blur. Can’t believe (but thanking my lucky stars) that it’s Friday again. To get you and me in the mood for the next weekend that’s just inches away, let’s have a quick recap of what I’ve been up to in the past week…

Saturday, 7 March 2015: Mugg n Bean coffee, Charly’s Bakery, parental beach visit, Catch22 dins

The easy cappuccino at Mugg n Bean always goes down a treat for me as it's extra milky. That side biscuit was a treat.

Rockstar Diner burgers and Design Indaba deliciousness

It’s been a long but lovely week, as I covered all three days of the Design Indaba conference, which meant the start of the week was a mad rush of getting a week’s worth of work done in two days, followed by three days of non-stop tweeting, scribbling and interacting. And, um, eating. We weren’t allowed to take photos in the auditorium so I took lots of photos of the food. Lots and lots. But first, of course, was the weekend…

Saturday, 20 February 2015: Bread & Butter breakfast, Wimpy shakes, Rockstar Diner burgers

Total bill was just on R200 for my 180g and Husband's 250g burger, as well as his draught and my fancy shake. Only problem is they're closed on Sundays and only open after 2pm the rest of the time. But we'll be back!

Look at this ridiculousness! Only on the final day of the conference did I discover a Woolworths flavour combination table, where you could choose all sorts of seemingly strange tastes to mingle together. I tried the 70% dark chocolate with crispy onion bits (yum) the white chocolate with dill gherkins (bit odd) and the milk chocolate with bacon nibs (best ever. Bacon goes with everything, obvs)

Two braais in a week, tongue-disrupted doggy walk and the ‘no photos of Bassie’ fail

And so, 2014 came to an end and 2015 began. How did we celebrate? As all South Africans do of course, with a braai. And another braai. And a doggie walk that was just so long Bertie decided to sit and smile and loll his tongue halfway through. See this unprecedented behaviour from the world’s most energetic doggie below…

Wednesday, 31 January 2014: Braai-ing out the old year

Look how lovely and relaxed Husband is here - the coals are lit and ready to go. The vest he's wearing has since been lost in the sea, alas...  long story.
