Summer Soup

After the thick rich soups and stews of winter our bodies need to attune themselves to the heat of summer and the activities that sunshine brings. The following soup is aimed to bring a sense of lightness and energy back into our bodies.

What Is Your Favourite Pudding?

There is a question in a book called ‘The Artist’s Way’ by Julia Cameron that asks – What is your favourite pudding? When I first began addressing my own healing process that question threw me completely. It took me three days of much rumination, going down memory lane into my childhood and back up again to decide that anything made with milk or cream was the best and most comforting taste in the world for me.

Frozen Grapes

The craziest pudding I have ever received was frozen grapes. It happened one hot late summer evening when those giant rose-pink seedless grapes were presenting themselves at the local supermarkets, fresh fruit and vegetable outlets and along the roadside farm kiosks.

Augrabies Special

When my children were young we went on a trip that meandered up the West Coast of South Africa and across to the Orange River.
We found ourselves camping at the Augrabies Falls. We were running low on food but our supplies revealed some tins of fish, rice and a bottle of you-know-who’s famous chutney. That night sitting at the edge of these falls, watching multi-coloured geckos catching the last rays of the sun, we ate what became known in our family to this day as ‘Augrabies Special’. Here is a more jazzed up version of this meal that compliments our ‘Something Fishy’ theme.

Stuffing Fit for a Fowl

I’m not sure when this stuffing came into my life but it probably was because we had a supply of oats on the shelf. What is great about this stuffing is that it is slightly sweet. It also expands. It can be cooked inside the bird or if the cavity is too small the rest can bake along side in a pottery bowl covered with foil.
