A slow week

We've been super busy with a few new inspiring concepts the past two weeks, hopefully all will come together very soon!  We are truly excited about it all...

On the blogging side its been slow!!

And I guess it is going to get much worse in the next couple of weeks as we are off to fetch our baby boy! Hooray! Unless I convince hubby to start blogging too...

Bare with us, as we will be sharing all the news and excitement as we figure out the ropes - 

In the meantime I leave you on a high with something Nikah said...

Ek vra haar nou die oggend of sy "A bugs life" wil kyk.
Sy sĂȘ: "Nee mamma, Nikah nie "A bugs lice" kyk nie, Nikah wil miere kyk..."

(Ons laat haar movie kyk terwyl sy haar Rooibos tee drink in die oggend tot 8 uur, daarna is dit speeltyd, so nie sal sy die heledag voor die tv sit.)

Ooh, how we adore that extra bit of afro, and a warm cuddling body early in the morning!

Ode aan die Sandveld - Rooibos White Chocolate Fudge

You'll need

2 cups of sugar
1 1/2 cups of cream
1 Tbs Rooibos Espresso (you could use less if prefer)
2 Tbs syrup (we used Maple Syrup)
1 Tbs butter
80g white chocolate

A candy thermometer

Place all the ingredients in a large saucepan, bring to boil, stirring often to let the ingredients combine.  Leave to boil on medium heat, stirring occasionally for about 40 min - 60 min, or until the temperature reaches 118 degrees Celsius on the thermometer.  (In the meantime prepare a 20cm x 20cm tin or baking dish with spray and cook as well as wax paper.)

This is the fudge stage, remove form heat stir continuously 
until luke warm then beat well until a pale colour is achieved, pour the fudge mixture into the prepared tin, place in fridge to cool and set.  Cut into squares.

Serve with a cuppa RED Cappacino!
It has a very creamy texture, pure indulgence for any
tea lover...

As a gift

Re-use a old coffee container, crochet a thin ribbon with chain stitches, wrap it around the lid, finish it off with a printed tag...
