I have got something easy and fun for you today! We have a little tradition in our house called “Pizza Fridays”. It’s a treat to look forward to at the end of the school and work week and, depending on what is on the schedule that day, I tend to whip up a quick pizza for the kids to have for supper. Occasionally I will make a proper yeast dough and tomato sauce from scratch for the whole family to enjoy, but it is usually something I can put together pronto like this tortilla pizza or today’s recipe which uses scone dough as its base.

It’s a new month and time to get back to normal after all of the school and public holidays which have had many of us wandering around much of the time scratching our heads and trying to work out what day it is! (Or maybe that was just me?) Last week I took a little break and the family headed to beautiful Knysna for a couple of wonderfully chilled days. Well, as chilled as you can be with two small children running about. We had a brilliant time and I so enjoyed being out of the normal routine, free from the usual daily chores and away from my laptop screen! Just what the doctor ordered.

September the 24th is a very special day in South Africa. It marks National Heritage Day, a holiday on which we as South Africans celebrate our rich, cultural diversity. More recently the day has also been termed (unofficially) as “National Braai Day” – a day for all of us to unite around the fire and indulge in a pastime we all enjoy, having a good old braai! On the eve of this wonderful celebration I could not think of a better time to share this recipe with you.

This week we got back to basics with a new challenge in the Freshly Blogged campaign. Round 7 saw us presented with a list of some of my favourite kitchen staples – butternut, leeks, tinned tomatoes, fresh thyme, rice and a baguette. I almost always have these ingredients on hand, they are the building blocks of many of my favourite meals. The challenge here would be to combine them in an interesting and creative way. And including rice, baguette and butternut in one delicious carbo-loaded dish was going to require some thought!
