The Family Table

We've recently had a few occasions to enjoy some good food and good conversation with family and friends. A few weeks ago we created a Tapas menu with our friends Greg and Sue. It was a great success.

Here's the menu:

Our good friends Greg and Sue.

Sara and Stephen decided to experiment and make Catalan Creme for Alan's 40th dinner.
Stirring... stirring... took forever!

And when you need a blow torch... just call your trusty sparkie! Stephen doing his 'chef' thing!

Frans making sure it's all good!

I had a little help with icing the birthday cake. Amelie doing her bit for her Daddy's cake.

Ami, Sara, Stephen, Alan, Amelie & Sonja

Happy 40th Alan! Do you feel old??? Nah... you're only getting started!

And then we had Father's Day last Sunday.
Happy Father's Day my Love. You're a great Dad!

We had 14 people for breakfast. A great way to entertain.
We ate and drank:
Pancakes with all the trimmings
Baked Eggs
Banana Bread
Orange flourless Cake
Carrot Cake
Orange Juice
Pink Grapefruit Juice
Coffe & Tea

This banana cake recipe came to us from our guest house host in Cape Town on a recent trip. It's delish!

The Giuanguilio and Hillege Clans!
