It's time to push your winter warmers to the back of the cupboard, and hang up your umbrellas. The sun has arrived and it looks like it's here to stay. So shake out your beach towels and lather yourself in suntan lotion, this weekend menu is themed around having fun in the sun.

Relax on your deck and pop open a bottle of your favourite wine – the Waverley Hills organic range is perfect for summer sipping. Pair it with a crispy Thai beef and glass noodle salad.

Throw together a big bowl of juicy, summer fruit with yoghurt and homemade muesli.

Apricots, mulberries, bananas, oranges, lemons, grapefruit, naartjies, guava, paw-paw, pineapples, kiwi, and strawberries are all in season now, so take your pick.

Invite family and friends over for an evening braai. Put big jugs of refreshing lemonade on the table and serve a gorgeous pork neck, with fillet and blue cheese stuffing, My easy cooking’s gourmet Braai broodjies, and a colourful Italian tomato summer salad.

Round off the meal with a decadent lemon mousse with confit of lemon .

Drag the family out of bed, get your hiking boots on or go to the beach for a relaxing day under the South African sun.

Fill your cooler box with avo-licious wraps, this quick and simple fettucini delight and for the carnivores, mince ciabattas.

And you can’t celebrate summer without lollipops – these morello cherry lollies or frozen yoghurt lollies will make anyone smile, big or small.

After a busy day of having fun in the sun, put your feet up and relax. Order in or pop into your favourite neighbourhood restaurant.
