Our gardener pointed out an enormous beehive in a corner of the garden, which we had removed. The bees and taken to safety, and we were left with lots of honeycomb!

Breakfast is much more satisfying if you've worked - made that walked - for it! See the lovely sun-dappled path, and our breakfast at Reload, Flamingo Vlei. Husband had the Turkish eggs and a double flat white, I had a peppermint-choc latte and the chicken-mayo bacon bagel. Just right, before the walk back home.

Husband had a work meeting in town first thing on Wednesday, so dropped me off at work on the way. But first, coffee! We love the blend at Tribe, which is over the road from work, and all coffees are R15 if ordered before 9am. See our tall flat whites, the wall mural outside and some literal spilt milk on the steps outside. We didn't cry over it.

We just managed to finish these between the two of us.

Karma chameleons and healthy weekend breakfasts at Kauai

You’ll note I said breakfasts, plural – that’s no typo. In a rare occurrence, we had breakfast at Kauai both days last weekend, and felt surprisingly healthy as a result! Lol. See proof of this and other meals below…

Thursday, 4 April 2019: Mid-workday flapjack treats

I worked from home last Thursday, so joined my parents when they had a teatime treat at Mugg & Bean. See our shared flapjack stack and assorted coffees.

Kauai breakfast, take 2. We'd enjoyed the previous day's breakfast so much that we repeated the experience on Sunday, with slight variations - we stuck with the flat whites but the boys tried the protein-egg bowl this time, and I had the choc-protein smoothie bowl. Yum! We'll be back, for sure.

Seafood and steak at Belthazar and Tabasco’s 12th birthday

Last weekend we lunched at Belthazar at the V&A Waterfront. We also celebrated little Bassie’s 12th birthday on Monday, as you’ll see from the pics below…

Saturday, 30 March 2019: Succulent steak lunch at Belthazar

Breakfast at Pulp Kitchen
Mmm. It was a Pulp Kitchen breakfast kind of morning on Saturday as we were in Willowbridge Centre. See our flat whites as well as my coffee-dipped French toast and Husband’s ‘Mexican standoff’ mince on toast, with a poached egg rather than the scrambled standard.
Wine at Belthazar
Next stop, Belthazar at the V&A Waterfront for lunch. See Husband’s wine with a handy tag explaining exactly what he was imbibing, as this is the largest ‘by-the-glass’ wine bar in the world, offering 250 options. Also see the lovely view across to a cloud-covered Table Mountain.
Belthazar-style avocado ritz
Husband opted for the Belthazar-style avocado Ritz starter. See the bright pops of colour. He said it tasted just as good as it looked.
Lunch at Belthazar
Husband starting on that starter. Also see the lovely ‘bread board’ complete with sausage in Napoletana sauce, Husband’s Madagascan green peppercorn-topped saucy flambeed steak, his side of baked potato and creamed spinach, and my steak roll with hand-cut chips. All lip-smackingly good!
Kahlua dom pedro at Belthazar
See Husband’s glass of red book-ended by my delicious Kahlua dom pedro. Highly recommended as a drink or dessert!
Waterfront hospital
A Waterfront view not often seen: Eye-catching staircase up to the castle-like Somerset Hospital.
Cupcakes
Cupcakes galore! We popped in at my Uncle Al’s house that evening, just up the road in West Beach, to celebrate his retirement. There were yummy cupcakes everywhere we looked!

Breakfast at Cup & Cake
We started our Sunday with breakfast at Cup & Cake in Eden on the Bay. See my three cinnamon-sugar pancakes and butterscotch latte, as well as Husband’s Eggs-purtly done (bread with Marmite, avo spread and poached egg). Yum!
