This past week has been busy but filled with delicious moments, as you’ll see from the pics below…

Tuesday, 4 June 2019: Terroir lunch at Kleine Zalze

Perfect way to prep for a media roadtrip - takeaway cappuccino from Tasha's, then onto the shuttle!
On Tuesday, 4 June I was invited to celebrate Kleine Zalze’s second straight win as best New World Producer. Perfect way to prep for a media roadtrip – takeaway cappuccino from Tasha’s, then onto the shuttle!

Delicious desserts! A selection of petit fours, cheese board platters and a cappuccino just before the rain started up again.

Gords was in town for a few days of business so stayed with us on Thursday night. We treated him to dins at our nearest Rocomama's.

Two milkshake slurpers in action! Gords had strawberry, I went for espresso. Yum.

Saturday, 8 June 2019: Woolworth’s breakfast repeat, lamb roast

We started our weekend with a dose of mall admin, soo W Cafe in Woolworth's, Table Bay Mall was our first stop. See my vanilla-cinnamon latte and croissant French toast, as well as Husband's chilli-egg omelette. Yes, this is a carbon copy of last Saturday's breakfast!

That’s all, folks! We hope you have a lovely long weekend and Father’s Day with your family.

Elephants in my coffee, Terroir’s Winter Plate 2016 lunches and Gordon’s Bay sunsets

What a wonderful weekend the last one was, mainly because we went to places we’d not been before. See a few of our favourite moments below…

Saturday, 21 May 2016: News Cafe Blouberg breakfast and Terroir Stellenbosch lunch

Kleine Zalze
The pretty view that greets you once you turn off the R44 into Kleine Zalze, where Terroir is located.
MCC at Terroir, Kleine Zalze
Cheers to Husband! We started off with complimentary water and a flute of MCC each, as you can see…
Bread board and amuse bouche at Terroir.
Before we’d even take a sip we were presented with that day’s bread board and amuse bouche selection! We advise that you take your time over your meal or you’ll be too full to sample it all.And that would be a disaster as you definitely do want to sample as much as you can.
Prawn risotto
Husband went for the most popular item on the menu – the prawn risotto with sauce Americaine – for his starter (that’s the yellow sunny section of his plate).
Smoked tomato tart.
There were so many delicious-sounding things to choose from but I’m glad I went for the smoked tomato tart. It tasted even better than it looked.
Linefish Winter Plate at Terroir
Husband opted for the linefish version of the Winter Plate special. It was dorado on the day.
Winter Plate 2016 at Terroir
More of the food. That’s the bread board top left, the amuse bouche middle left and my seed-crusted fillet Winter Plate in the bottom right, with our shared dark chocolate bar dessert on the right. All even more delicious than they looked.
Kleine Zalze fountain
We had to go for a walk after we’d eaten as it was a gorgeous day and the grounds at Kleine Zalze are quite something. I even blended in with all the natural purpleness!
Kleine Zalze golf course
Just look at the gorgeous golf course. Membership comes at a pricy R25,000 per year for non-residents. Gulp.
Gordon's Bay
We were in sightseeing mode after lunch, so headed on past Strand to Gordon’s Bay and walked along the pier. This pic is funny as we were standing on rocks and I was initially facing the wrong way. Lol.
Pringle Bay beach
Taking in the view a little later on the beach in Pringle Bay.
Pringle Bay sunset
Sun slowly sinking over the sea in Pringle Bay.
Gordon's Bay road
Beautiful views along the road that hugs the coast back to Gordon’s Bay.
Cappuccino at the Thirsty Oyster
We stopped in at the Thirsty Oyster in Gordon’s Bay harbour for a sunset cappuccino. Lovely way to end the day.
Sunset in Gordon's Bay
Coffee downed, we took a brief walk along the pier. Here is Husband gazing at the setting sun.
Sunset in Gordon's Bay
I am the queen of cheesy pics. Look at me just grasping the sun!
Gordon's Bay pier
Of course we also took a selfie from the Gordon’s Bay pier.
Fishermen in Gordon's Bay
Such a peaceful pier, with fishermen dotted along the outskirts.

Sunday, 22 May 2016: News Cafe breakfast and doggy beach walks

20160522_092009
Having not eaten since lunch at Terroir the day before, we decided to start our Sunday with the News Cafe early bird English breakfast. Love pouring the espresso into the frothed milk myself for a latte.
Elephant in cappuccino
Be careful what you wish for – you may just end up with an elephant in your coffee! This is the work of the skilled News Cafe baristas.
Dachshund in the sea
The doggies demanded a beach walk later that day, and it is was the perfect weather for it as the wind disappeared for a while. Bassie was even brave enough for a quick paddle in the icy sea.
Dogs at the beach
Ha! The doggies pull you every which way when they go for walkies as there’s just so much to see/smell/hear! This is at Kreeftebaai, about halfway between Blouberg and Melkbosstrand.
Dog walking beach Table Mountain
Bertie really loves his beach walkies.
Dog and coffee cup
Later that afternoon Bassie insisted on sitting on her Granny’s lap after lupper.

Thursday, 26 May 2016: Content training at work and doggy father/daughter love

Taking notes in office training
Our team had a training session on Thursday afternoon – that’s my ‘paying attention’ ponytail as I take notes.
Dog and dad
What a wonderful Husband I have! The doggies love him dearly and spend at least 10 minutes fighting for his attention when he gets home from work. Even after the toughest day he takes the time to listen to my troubles and soon has a smile back on my face. ❀

That’s all, folks! If you’d like a more detailed description of all we ate at Terroir, click through to my official review on Bizcommunity.

May your weekend be relaxing and filled with everything you love. πŸ™‚
