Seasonsational weekend menu

Head on down to the nearest veggie store and buy some fresh, seasonal products to brighten up your weekend.

Food24 has planned a weekend menu around the fruit and vegetables that are in season this August. This is a great way to minimise the impact of food on your wallet and a healthy alternative to all that greasy, cheap fast-food.

Our lovely blogger My easy cooking makes her own, flavoured salt. Rub this on a juicy steak and grill on the braai for an easy dinner tonight.

Serve with fluffy baked sweet potatoes dripping with sour cream and a tasty fresh garden salad and why not save some money and make your own Asian-style salad dressing.

Start the day off with a rejuvenating pawpaw smoothie.

For lunch warm yourself up with a bowl of creamy mushroom soup served with pumpernickel bread.

Dinner is a zesty lime and ginger chicken paired with a vibrant avocado and grapefruit salad.

Munch on these deliciously sweet pumpkin fritters with your morning coffee.

For lunch make a crusty spinach and mushroom pie, oozing with ricotta and feta cheese.

Sole fillets with a splash of garlic and lemon sauce and a glass of crisp white wine will be the perfect ending to a relaxed weekend.

And for dessert try a gooseberry and pineapple tart.
