We also picked up our ceres fruit and vegetable box so between that and the garden we had a really nice salad with fresh baby cos, shredded red cabbage, tomatoes and capsicum.
I fried up some homemade chips from locally grown dutch cream potatoes as our duaghter asked for them.
Then the crème de le crème the haloumi fried up with some sliced pear.

Now onto another day of the corporate world owning my ….
