Hi foodie friends. Anyone else feeling slightly panicked at how quickly this month is going? The kids have just started their final term of school for the year, and it’s always jam packed so I’m bracing myself for that.

They will be returning this week though, and that means that lunch boxes will be added back onto the daily to-do list!

It’s week three of self isolation for my family not to mention one week into South Africa’s lockdown, and it felt wrong to just put out another recipe without acknowledging the strange and unsettling situation that we all find ourselves in right now. So for this post I’m doing something a little different and sharing not only some recipe inspiration but some thoughts on how we’re managing at home, and our new routine. Please feel free to add your own thoughts in the comments, I’d love to hear how you’re doing!
