Share a tender evening for two with your partner and say goodbye to the sun with a romantic sundowner.

Serve a tasty flambéed fillet with black pepper cream or, for the vegetarians an avocado and roast vegetable pasta with feta pesto. And for dessert, this decadent double chocolate mousse.

For breakfast try these mealie meal porridge vetkoekies with your morning cup of coffee.

It’s the Bulls vs the Crusaders semi-final this weekend, call the gang over for a braai and some laughter while you scream at the television.

Instead of the usual braai why not surprise your friends with this seafood braai of chilli prawns and fish of your choice. Serve your fish with a potato and onion bake and an avocado and ruby grapefruit salad.

For another surprise and to warm them up, give your guests soup as they arrive. Our clever blogger Nina’s Kitchen suggests that we pour soup into espresso cups, something a little different and eye-catching.

Start the Sunday off with a healthy Thai orange shake and a big bowl of Bircher's muesli.

For lunch whip up this heart – and tummy-warming Autumn lamb stew with some homemade whole-wheat bread.

To end the weekend off spoil yourself with a delicious mug of hot chocolate .
