What's for Breakfast

My day cannot begin without yoghurt and muesli for breakfast.  I add banana bread and fresh bananas to it to vary it up a little bit like I did here but blueberry muffins and fresh strawberries are also a delicious variation.

Midnight in Paris

Last night I watched the new Woody Allen film, Midnight in Paris.  The opening scenes to this movie would convert anyone to love Paris.  I'm lucky enough to have visited the magical city twice.  The backdrop of this film had me pulling out pictures of my last visit to Versailles in particular where the characters visited.  While roaming around here you can most certainly feel the air or royalty.

Clouding over

A while ago I spent the day looking for good tea shops as I'm always looking for an interesting take on the age old tradition.  My search ended with the suggestion to stop at the Birdcage on Jan Smuts.  The tea room itself is quite small but the spa next door has a wonderful garden I went walking through.  The desserts were delightful.  What a great way to spend an overcast day.

Only a day away

I was surprised with a day in Dullstroom by my lovely boyfriend.  We went for pancakes at Harry's Pancakes and we had delicious fillings - milktart and strawberries with cream.  These are by far the best pancakes I've ever eaten.  The day was spent looking, admiring and tasting the culture around us.
