|On an unrelated note: Can you believe this was taken with my cellphone?|
Sometimes I am at my happiest when I am at my busiest! This is not to be confused with my happiness while on holiday (relaxing and reading in a sunny spot in a foreign place)- that is THE ULTIMATE.
But when we have to do normal life with work during non-holiday times then I love being busy. It makes time fly. It also makes for easy writing and inspiration. BUT it also doesn't allow for much baking or photographing which = no recipe posts!!! Darn and sorry.
This month I am working on and looking forward to:
Judging: Being a food judge, this is a first for me but I am enjoying it thoroughly. Being asked to eat food at the V & A Waterfront in the Masters of the Trade Route Culinary Challenge in which their restaurants are partaking to be the winner of the signature dish and title. The fact that I get to eat at some of the restaurants and say what I think is even more fun than I thought it would be.
Advertising: I am so SUPER excited to have my first blog advertiser! I have been hoping for this day for so very long and now that it is here I am even more chuffed than I thought I would be. Please welcome yuppiechef to my side bar. Click the ad - they have yummy kitchen equipment and I love their website so it was a natural choice to say yes to them.
Tasting a Legend: I finally got to eat some of the legendary Chef Luke Dale Roberts food at The Potluck Club on Wednesday night all thanks to The Big Green Egg - a ceramic braai of sorts. All the food was cooked on their ceramic braai's and everything tastes so very yummy! Which was very cool! I hope to own one - one day! To take a look at some of the food that I ate click here. (I chose the vegetarian option)
Farmers Market: My favorite market that I shop at weekly in Tokai every Saturday - The Earth Fair market opens in Noordhoek on a Thursday night (from 4pm onwards). Yay, I am looking forward to seeing how it will be - I am sure it will be the best of all their markets yet!
Instagram: I am loving Instagram and post photos on there most days. I never thought that a cellphone app would be as fun as this! search for me on Instagram @bettybake :) or you can look on your computer using an online website called webstagram or Statigram
I still check on my blog everyday and love reading the comments. So how are you? What are you looking forward to?
