Once again this week, Pensitivity100, is asking the questions. Here are my answers.

  1. Do you prefer tea, coffee or juice first thing in the morning?

Definitely coffee. Hot, strong, black without sugar.

2.  When it comes to food, what is your favourite smell?

Braai – no other cooking smells as good.

3.  Do you prefer a take-out or dining in a restaurant?

I prefer to go to a restaurant. If we don’t cook ourselves we don’t want to clean up either. You need to wait for take-out anyway so why not just wait at the table and eat hot food straight away. On a road trip, stopping to eat at a diner or coffee shop means you will take a decent break from driving.

4.  If you are hosting a party, do you prepare the food yourself, get caterers in or ask everyone to bring something for the table?

Before we retired my husband and I would cater dinner parties for up to twelve people ourselves. We still enjoy entertaining small dinner parties but now we tend to limit the numbers. When it’s a braai or a fish dish, the Earl does the cooking with me helping with side dishes. When Greek Lamb is on the menu then I am totally in charge!

For a big part of more than twelve, we would definitely get caterers.

One of those wonderful dinner parties when we had a big enough table!


What has been the highlight of your week over the last seven days?

We are really lucky that without having to drive too far we have some good restaurants that serve excellent food at reasonable prices. Last week we enjoyed a great lunch at “Agulhas Seafoods” with our friend Carl.

Good wine, awesome company
And superb ushi

    Yes I love eating out. No cooking, no cleaning up afterwards. Now we getting older it’s not important to cook so much most shops do lovely meals and soups so we buy…
    Enjoy your braais one thing we miss very much in the apartment.

      We will enjoy the braai for as long as possible, Mary. I do tend to buy ready made soups but sometimes make my own. Other ready meals not so easily available here.
