Mini Malva puddings are giving me the heads up for these last few days ahead before we head home for vacation in South Africa. I am beyond excited even though staying home in France where all is easier (toddler wise) I don’ t care about all of the nitty gritty stuff when it comes to traveling and moving around for a whole month, I just want to dive into all South Africa has to offer. The means for a night off, me not cooking and occupying my son with his niece and nephews.

Mini Malva puddings are giving me the heads up for these last few days ahead before we head home for vacation in South Africa.

The means for a night off, me not cooking and occupying my son with his niece and nephews. Oh, and me giddily enjoying a braai…

It has been a long month, especially since spring has been welcomed by heaps of rain and my cherry tree has drowned under it all. My son and his dad have been pretty under the weather and that means I’m pretty much under the weather. So a change of scenery and conversation is much anticipated!

I am sorry for me posting so many SA recipe lately…My husband is getting the hint that I am on the verge of getting on a plane and heading home without him. I was pretty close to that venture…but I could not leave him alone and who am I kidding, flying alone with my munchkin is a nightmare. I have dared that the last time I went to visit right before Christmas and I was so put off traveling/flying for a really long time. There is just a thing with traveling and kids, they always get sick and that was pretty much the case the whole time I went to visit. So fingers crossed it goes well this time.

I always come back with souvenirs and that mostly includes Milo (a malty chocolate drink) multi packs of rooibos tea, peppermint chocolate slabs, custard powder, mushroom soup (for most stews and sauces) and chutney (can’t go without). We believe Rooibos can cure quite a couple things. Like when you’re sick, when you can’t go to bed and when you need something to calm you down. There are a few healing properties and most importantly it makes me think of home and my mom.

Eeek so just a couple days to go until I get to have a decent breakfast, drink rooibos cappuccino and have a full body glass or glasses of red wine. I will be taking a break from blogging, but I will tell you all about my vacation when I come back! But for all other purposes, I leave you with these caramel like desserts with the most refreshing, but soothing rooibos ice cream.
