In my previous post I lamented the total lack of a Cape Town autumn this year as I’m heading for London on Sunday. But we did get a few cooler days this past month and let’s be honest, the Great British Summer doesn’t actually begin until mid-July so I will have a little reprieve from the heat and the opportunity to wear layered clothes and beloved boots.

Down at the Southern tip of Africa we’ve been having an extended Summer. Not the quaint kind, but more like the “ok knock it off now this isn’t funny anymore” kind. Exhibit A- the hottest month of the “summer season” appeared to be April, aka the 2nd month of Autumn. Exhibit B- We are now half way through May, technically supposed to be Winter and it was 30C degrees on Sunday, 28 on Monday. I’m probably going to go to the beach this weekend. Global Warming is real, fam (I wish I could show that to a certain foreign president, in addition to my middle finger). Autumn and the cool, mild weather it brings is usually my favourite season, I’m heading straight to a second round of Summer in the UK soon and Cape Town is suffering a severe drought & water shortage. All this is making me irritable AF every time I step out into another sweaty, baking day. But I may as well accept the fact that I’ll just have to continue donning skirts and dresses and carry on shaving my legs for the rest of 2017 and make the most of endless Summer fashion…

Have you ever set out to cook something that seemed really simple, so you decided to forgo any recipe or research, chucked a bunch of ingredients together with a large cup of optimism, put it into the oven/pot/fryer on a wing & a prayer and it turned out utterly amazing?! So much so that you decided you must be an undiscovered culinary savant and started yelling at the TV “No you’re rubbish, Gordon Ramsey!”
It’s happened to me exactly three times; with crab cakes, potato bake, and chicken wings. Today, I’m spilling the feathers on the latter.
We’re taking it waaaay back today to my Hong Kong trip at the end of last year. Roaming the streets of Causeway Bay in my new “Engrish” sweater and synthetic pink wig that I would give anything to be my real hair. Sigh… New posts coming soon, was dealing with some work & internet issues. Ah life! [Read more…]
