Went out to lunch on Sunday past.  What a pleasure to see another oldie deftly using her iPad to show another oldie some photographs.

Oldies and iPad

Just shows an old dog can be taught new tricks.

Lunch was a set menu – roast beef, Yorkshire pudding and a selection of vegetables – and was most delicious.  Quantity wise it stopped short of over stuffing oneself.

The wine was a delicious bouquet rich Merlot.

Enjoy a super evening.

Sunday past was a winter’s day to book and called for roast beef and Yorkshire pudding.  My wife decided to try a Jamie Oliver recipe for the Yorkshire pudding instead of her traditional one.

Yorkshire 3

The end result according to my taste was these world famous chefs are not necessarily better, the wife’s traditional Yorkshire pudding outshines that of Jamie’s by a thousand meals.

Have a super Friday.

With winter upon us a braai (BBQ) will now almost become the exception weather permitting, so it is back to kitchen cooking, or as we say we will eat out – out of the kitchen.  So Sunday past was the first fully prepared inside meal of the season

And all this was washed down with a delicious fruity Cabernet.

Looks like rain on its way over here.  Have a super evening.

As usual on a Sunday morning I went to buy oven fresh croissants for breakfast.  Today’s trip brought along a little excitement and appreciation for the character of the inhabitants of our suburb.  Close to home I noticed this rabbit on a sidewalk.

I did come to an abrupt stop, grabbed my camera and flew, yes flew, out of the car as if it was on fire.  Managed to get some shots in when around the corner came this pet.

When the cat saw the rabbit, or it could have been me, it became all puffed up.  In my mind’s eye I saw me saving a rabbit from a vicious cat.  My fears were energy wasted.  The cat rushed up to the rabbit and tightly next to one another they dashed through the gate into the garden of the house where they obviously belong.  Could not get a pic of that move as they were too fast and my shutter speed was set far to slow for fast moving objects.

The old Volkswagen Beetle is becoming a rarity seldom seen now a days.  However I was treated to this guy at the bakery.  Left hand drive and a German  license plate.  According to the owner its clock has turned over a few times, but that VW is in impeccable condition with an engine purring as a healthy VW engine should purr.

The day started very promising and at six this morning as the darkness of the night gave way to a gentle daybreak I decided it will be a nice roast beef on the Weber kettle and we will have our first end of Spring braai (BBQ) in style.  Yes, you guessed it,  shortly after nine the weather changed my mind for me and again we will eat out – out of the kitchen.  Anyway, MBH promised that it will be roast beef and Yorkshire pudding so I won’t complain too loudly.  Have a super day of rest.
