I love visiting my brother and his wonderful family. My niece and nephews are delightful and I spend as much time as I can with them. On Friday evening we went to the local evening market. I love walking around and visiting each vendor and seeing the amazing talent people have. I without a doubt stood behind the door when talent was handed out. Except for the talent of bitch, I own that. My brother and his wife have a store/coffee shop in Hoekwil. Their breakfast is amazing and very reasonably priced. They are very supportive of local, organic produce and the repertoire they have with the clients is great. Such a wonderful tight knit community.

My brother is a phenomenal cook. He makes the most incredible prawns in the very typical Portuguese style. Lots of garlic, olive oil and peri-peri. Whenever I go home my brother always makes his prawns, it has become a tradition and one I don't mind at all. My sister in law makes a mean salad, there is never any left. There is nothing better than sitting around the braai, glass of excellent South African red in your hand, waiting for the coals to get to the perfect temperature. I love this time as my brother and I get to catch up and as he turns the farmers sausage a little stab of guilt flows through you as you look over the fence at the cows gazing back at you. The moment of guilt becomes a distant memory when you take that first bite.
