happy days

Today’s post is dedicated to…LOVE!


At the weekend, a very dear friend of mine became a bride-to-be. This called for a celebratory mid-week luncheon. (What’s not to love about eating yummy food in the sun while most peeps are slaving away at work?…Made everything taste so much sweeter.)

Bride-to-be is not only a pretty gal:

…she also makes very delicious food and treats:

BBQ babe made a delectable carrot cake; so delectable, i forgot to take a photo of it (sozza).

No photo of me (thank God), but I will give you a recipe for this salad:

I was very excited to get my hands on to some candy-striped beets & heirloom carrots at the Mondo’s Market (check them out! cnr 6th Ave & Beaufort St, every Sat from 8am – 12ish. You can get AMAZING fruit & veg there, M&M’s DELICIOUS empanadas, Jerry’s Oysters, good coffee and some sweet treats).

Anyways… I sliced the beets superfine with a mandoline (don’t have one? buy one! or…try to slice very thin with a very, very sharp knife). I cut the carrots into long strips. I blanched some asparagus and halved the stalks.

Then i added the following: danish fetta, heaps of chopped mint, heaps and heaps of chopped coriander, about 100g of raspberries, about 1/4 cup chopped pistachios and 2 segmented blood oranges. For a dressing, I made a vinaigrette with 1tsp mustard, some olive oil and raspberry vinegar. It was yummy.

That’s all for today….so, for my newly-engaged friends – congratulations! Here’s to the happy days that lie ahead.
