Your long weekend menu

28 Mar 2013

Yippeee, bring on the chocolate covered Easter weekend.

The vital question is, what will you be eating?

I don't know about you, but the nip in the air has got my appetite brewing and I feel like going big in the kitchen.

So here's my long weekend menu wish...

Good Friday

Friday is braai day, so light that fire and try some of these fantabulous recipes for a day in the South African sun.

Braai toasties
Thick sirloin steaks on the braai
Snoek on the braai
Garlic bread
Amazing salads
Marshmallows with Bar One sauce


Here I'm looking at a kick-ass brunchy-style thing.

Pear and honey smoothie
Cinnamon buns with lemon icing
Pea and ham potato cakes with poached eggs and Gypsy ham
Eggs Benedict
Huevos Rancheros
Avocado and bacon frittata


Ah, Easter Sunday! Bring on the amazing roast.

Easter breakfast buns
Tomato and goats cheese tart
Lamb Kleftico
The best roast potatoes
Roasted butternut, beetroot and avocado salad
Chocolate shots with mint crisp crumble


It's left-overs day and a mishmash of things that I love and of course, lots and lots of chocolate.

Braai quiche
Left-over lamb sandwich
Ultimate Caesar salad
Charcuterie platter
Spicy calamari salad

Enjoy it all my lovely foodies with some great wine from the Weekend wine box.

With a pitter-patter of Easter bunny paws,
