Monday mornings are usually a bit of trying time for me (and most others). I think it has somehting to do with the fact that I allow my weekday routine to slip into lengthy breakfasts of crispy bacon and patisserie. It seems that this miniscule hiatus makes my body forget that the week ever existed!
This week, I got up early and went for a run. Summer has just started to make its way to Cape Town and the promenade was great! I also had Neil Armstrong congratulate me on my fastest time – I use a Nike+ attachments on my iPod.
Whilst making coffee, reception buzzed to tell me that a package had arrived. I had actually forgotten that I’d chatted with Paul from Yuppiechef last week and that my pre-released copy of Jamie’s 30 Minute Meals was en route.
|I just love the attention to detail.|
To say that I was excited is the understatement of the century! The Monsieur will tell you of the day that Yuppiechef sent the gifts from our registry through – I called him gasping and screaming with excitement and it’s probably not the best reason to call a person out of a meeting, but I had to share. Gifts from Yuppie Chef are just THAT good. They always arrive wrapped, with a hand written card and with a badge or magnet. I might have a couple…
Over the next couple of days I will be cooking a few of the meals featured in this book. I took a quick squizz through and besides the tasty images this book is a step-by-step guide to help busy people cook a 3 course meal in 30 minutes. I can’t wait to tuck in!
