Chef’s trio special at Eat at Perdeberg

This past week has been busier than usual as I’ve been in Durban covering the Loeries Awards for work since Wednesday. But lots happened before then…

Friday,ย  16 August 2019: Bus station walkies

When I got off the bus from work last Friday, all the male members of the household were there to greet me. Bertie was a very good boy on his walkies.

He stopped to sniff at things and rustle in the shrubbery along the walkway, but didn't bark at anyone or anything - a different doggie to the shouter on car trips!

Saturday, 17 August 2019: Roadtrip to Paarl, to Eat at Perdeberg

We breakfasted at Reload, Flamingo Vlei on Saturday and sampled their 'breakfast bun' special. Husband had a flat white with his, I went for the peppermint-choc latte.

It was perfect weather for sitting outside, so sit outside we did. See the main Perdeberg Cellar building, as well as their grape juice bottles, my strawberry shake and the wines Husband sampled.

Some of the deliciousness of Eat at Perdeberg - see the bobotie springrolls, served samoosa-style with the most delicious homemade chilli, tomato, coriander and ginger jam; the braai boxes for two; their strawberry shake, the chef's trio special of oxtail, venson pie and chicken curry with veg and chips on the side, and Husband's glass of red.

We passed such pretty scenery on our way home from Eat at Perdeberg - field of sunny yellow canola, cows grazing and more.

We called these pics 'calm before the storm' - see the waves crashing on the rocks in the background! Husband also had his customary weekend dip in the sea.
Later that afternoon we visited the beach. We called these pics ‘calm before the storm’ – see the waves crashing on the rocks in the background! Husband also had his customary weekend dip in the sea.
By Saturday evening we were a little peckish again so see the Otomi (chilli con carne, coriander, spiced yoghurt) pizza we shared at Col'cacchio, Seaside Village. Also see the sunset over the sea.

Sunday, 18 August 2019: Bica brekkie, Burger King lupper and sleepy dogs

Breakfast is served! This is what we ordered from Cafe Bica in Bayside Mall on Sunday morning. See Hubcaps chorizo-egg croissant, as well as my banana pancakes and one of our flat whites.

Mum was a little under-the-weather on Sunday, so we opted for Burger King takeaways for lupper. See our extra-long chilli cheese burgers and cans of 'coffee Coke'.

Tuesday, 20 August 2019: Tribe coffee break, family dinner at Rocomama’s

I met Husband for a quick coffee at Tribe, across the road from my offices on Tuesday. See our nice strong flat whites.

Cloudy Malmsbury scenery, OJ for breakfast and new spectacles

Another admin-filled week as we’ve had to present affidavits to replace most of my bank cards, my prescription glasses and even spent the bulk of a day at home affairs applying for a new ID. That said, there were still highlights, as you’ll see below…

Friday, 30 September 2016: #AspirationsReport event and home braai

Sport Sciences Institute in Newlands
I spent most of the day at the Sport Science Institute in Newlands, right by the sweet smelling South African Breweries, taking in the findings of the UCT Unilever Institute of Strategic Marketing’s #AspirationsReport 2016 – click here to find out more.
Braai
The weather was delightful that evening, so Husband braaied some cheese wors for our dins.

Saturday, 1 October 2016: Malmsbury scenery

Cloudy road to Malmsbury
Our first stop on Saturday was home affairs in town… only to find they’d already taken their 100 ID applications for the day. We decided to also try the department in Malmsbury, +-120km away as it was also a bucket list location for us to tick off. You can just see the mountains and roads in this photo dominated by clouds.
Lavender
Lots of pretty lavender, rosemary and other assorted plants add a splash of colour to the countryside.
Palm tree frame
This window frames the natural beauty of this scenery perfectly. This was on our way back home on finding the Malmsbury office just as crowded. We ticked off Malmsbury and decided to try again in town during the week.
Enchiladas at the Village Place Cafe
By then quite tired and hungry, we stopped in at the Village Place Cafe and noticed they had a new menu with intriguing items like enchiladas. Husband tried them, with a filling side salad.
S'mores waffle at Village Place Cafe
For me… well I couldn’t pass up the S’mores Belgian waffle, could I? Delicious. Look at all that ice cream and gooey marshmallow. Yum.
Milkshakes at Wimpy, Canal Walk
After even more admin of replacing loyalty cards and buying a new handbag we treated ourselves to large milkshakes at the Wimpy in Canal Walk. Husband had the banana, I had the coffee.
Dog watching eat
Much later that evening, I noticed a pair of eyes watching me munch some crisps.

Sunday, 2 October 2016: Beachy mornings and cocktail afternoons

Flapjack stack at Bread & Butter
For breakfast on Sunday we found ourselves at Bread & Butter again. This flapjack stack with bacon, cinnamon-fried banana and syrup was truly delicious. Note my cheapie non-prescription sunnies.
Orange juice
Husband, being healthy, opted for an orange juice instead of his usual breakfast Cola. Lol at his face after ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s my cappuccino you can see, Husband had the same Banting breakfast as last week (click here for a reminder).
Blouberg beach
It was beach weather, so we went to the beach. That’s Husband running ahead of me, desperate to dip his feet in the water.
Book at the beach
I was happy to soak up some sun, doze off and read a bit while Husband splashed about.
Rocks at sea
Here is Husband exploring the rocks after his dip.
Pina colada at Eden Cafe.
We stopped in at Eden Cafe in Big Bay a little later in the day. I finally got to have the pina colada I’d been waiting for all week.
Long Island Ice Tea at Eden Cafe
Husband went for his standard Long Island Ice Tea.
Pincushion flowers
Such a pretty floral centre piece at mum’s that evening.

Wednesday, 5 October 2016: Burger Kingย ad premier

Burger King whopper meal
On Wednesday evening, Husband and I were invited to the premier of Burger King’s first ad, fittingly at the newly opened Burger King at Canal Walk (where Joe’s Easy Diner used to be). We were treated to a Whopper meal each. I’ll be writing about the ad for Bizcommunity next week!
Canal Walk palm tree
We had a bit of time to spare between eating and watching the ad (as well as the new Masterminds movie), so wandered around the mall and its perimeter.

Thursday, 6 October 2016: Home Affairs morning,ย Doodles evening

Toast and cappuccino at On the Corner
We had ย a very early start to queue at Home Affairs again, and despite a few system crashes – I had to have my photo digitally taken three separate times – all was sorted and we had confirmation that the new IDs will be ready in a few weeks. To celebrate we decided to eat at On the Corner in Paarden Island. Here’s my peri peri sauce-drenched double-toasted chicken mayo and handcut chips, with cappuccino is handle-less glass cup.
Full on breakfast
Husband went for the ‘Full on’ breakfast – all this and the cappuccino in the above photo for R45!
Milkshake at Doodles
Following a nap and collection of my last few replacement cards we went to Doodles for a late-afternoon treat. Look at my Bar-One milkshake, almost bigger than Husband! Lol.
Nachos at Doodles
We shared the nachos. Just right for both of us and one of the most popular orders.

Friday, 7 October 2016: Fat Cactus family and new spectacles

Drinks at Fat Cactus
Husband met my parents at the Fat Cactus just up the road from work so he could save me some travel time home. Mum is holding up a rib, dad a margarita, Husband a beer.
Specsavers sunglasses
We stopped off at Specsavers in Bayside on the way home to collect my new glasses. Prescription sunnies, too. Silly poser, me ๐Ÿ˜‰

That’s all, folks! Looking forward to a relaxing weekend, hope you are, too.
