This weekend was the best– the type when you do exactly what you feel like doing without feeling rushed or stressed. From a run with Ben to Camps bay and a delicious Greek dinner at Maria’s to exploring the Hout Bay market (LOVE this place), doing odd bits of decorating/cleaning out at home and being pampered at Petticoat Parlour!
I am having a dinner party tomorrow night and trying out the whole healthy yet delicious thing – I love making salads bit am renowned for over-catering when it comes to dinner parties. Even though I have no doubt that I will over cater – I am going to be sure it is with healthy treats – so far this is my menu:
Roast chickens with ciabatta breads and plenty of greens…
Salad 1: quinoa, chickpeas, bulgur wheat, chilli, red onion and coriander with a lemon zest and Tahiti dressing
Salad 2: Cherry tomato salsa salad with basil, red and yellow peppers, red onion and croutons (with a red wine vinegar dressing)
Salad 3: baby potatoes partially squashed with butter (teensy bit), chives and a bit of garlic
The recipes will follow if they taste good… Holding thumbs!
Hope your weekend was good xxx
