[I think we did ok...] So another Sunday Supper under the belt. The small world we live in, never ceases to astound. Our diner's sister and I, notwithstanding a 10 year age difference, discovered things in common. Like living in Yeoville. Remembering the bad good old days.

[Voting for South Africa’s Sixth Parliament] It’s 25 years since I first voted, and I have voted in each election since.  I have missed only one local government election because I was travelling on business and there was no possibility of a special vote. Yesterday, I ventured to the polling station mid-morning, and earlier in the day than I had planned as my schedule had gone somewhat awry.  I drove on because there was a queue out the door, I had things to do, figuring that as they would only shut up shop at 9pm, I had plenty of time. So, late afternoon, having done what I needed to do, I headed out into the setting sun, under a gloomy sky.  Not only was the polling station virtually empty, but there were happy party supporters - some from different parties - partying together.  That would **not** have happened 25 years ago. Nor would the cheerful greeting of the mandatory police members at the gates. Yes, there seem to have been some glitches, like the disappearing indelible ink that reappears and the inevitability of folk bucking the system, but by and large, the election seems to have gone well.  We will still have the same ruling party, but it will not have a two thirds majority, and with 40+ other parties on the ballot, the final outcome will be interesting. While I am concerned about the rise of the lunatic left and the reactionary right - not specific to South Africa - it makes my heart sing that South Africa’s democracy seems to be maturing.

[Easter 2019 - Sunday Supper] Well, Sunday Supper and the menu were all planned and we had a couple, no three, bookings. Then it dawned on me that somehow, one of the main ingredients for the dessert had missed the shopping list. Mea culpa. There was no way I (or The Husband) were heading into town. Just for that. Plan B. Happily everything else went according to plan and we ended up with five diners. So what? Well, the late bookers ended up wanting to connect with, and hadn't been able to, find our neighbour who was already booked. She often books just for herself, and I don’t like, and sometimes it’s awkward to have lone diners so she’s always invited to dine with us - but much later.  So her supper was re-scheduled and she had a happy re-connection with friends of friends. Happy happenstance. But wait, there’s more:  The other folk who joined us were staying at a local winery which regularly recommends Sunday Supper @ The Sandbag House, but in this instance, the suggestion had not come from them, but from previous diners - about whom I wrote here https://steemit.com/steempress/@fionasfavourites/heritagefoodmytake-uyjlloezbb.  Their note in our book touched us.  Thank you. The connections that happen in McGregor, and especially over Sunday Supper @ The Sandbag House never cease to amaze use.

[Koeksisters and Pickled fish] Koeksisters and pickled fish are traditional South African food. The former is a standard part of my offering at the market. The pickled fish not so much. In our part of South Africa it is traditionally eaten at Easter (with hot cross buns in some households, but not this one, I hasten to add). It's been a long kitchen day with not just the koeksisters, but also cheese cutting, hummus, chicken liver paté and, finally, potting the fish which has already pickled for a week. Now I am looking forward to an evening of wine and song. More of that tomorrow.

[Good Company] This week’s Sunday Supper deviated from the usual, not only because we had no bookings which is not exactly unusual, but what made it special was the opportunity to catch up with a good friend - one of the first we made when we arrived in the village.  He and his partner have a holiday home here which means that over weekends, we’re all often a little like ships provervial in the night. No diners: perfect opportunity for a long overdue catch-up. The main course was perfect for the first really cold, wet evening of the year:  Cape Malay style curry. I am slightly embarrassed to say that virtually the entire meal was closely supervised by Princess Pearli who decided to make a dramatic addition to the table decor (which included more from our autumnal blooming roses) for most of the evening.  Thankfully our guest is an animal lover knows the Smith Street Strumpet relatively well and was very tolerant. Until The Cat’s Mother decided that enough was enough.

[A pear in a bottle] The great thing about certain desserts is that they keep well and can become products to sell at the market.  So these pears, in bottles, poached in chardonnay and spices will be available at tomorrow’s pop-up market.

This Sunday, according to the Weather Channel is likely to be cold and wet. This week’s Sunday Supper menu – Broccoli Soup followed by Malay lamb / Chickpea curry(v) both served with fragrant rice. This week’s dessert is mini apple crumble and cream. Please advise if you require a vegetarian main when you book Remember: Bring your own drinks Cash only Reservations essential and close by noon Saturday or when we are fully booked, which ever happens first. DM to book. I have been asked if we would do supper on Easter Monday (22 April). We will, if there is sufficient demand, i.e. a minimum of four diners.

[Sunday Supper on a Wednesday] Yesterday I shared pictures of my first ever puff pastry and vol au vents.  This main course was a special request (ahem...challenge…) from a Swiss swallow.  Filled with a dish made with among other things, offal (often sweetbreads and brains), they are very popular in Switzerland as both a main course and, in miniature, as canapes. So, rising to the challenge, I agreed to give them a bash - on two conditions.  One from me, that the filling would not be offal and the other, from his wife, that the filling would not be pork to which she is allergic.  The filling I selected was based on what I thought was a made-up dish of mine, usually made with leftover chicken, mushrooms, white wine and cream.  As it turns out, it’s a proper dish…Chicken a la Creme. Who would have thought? Pretty table set, including with Mum & Dad’s Roland Ward crystal, which I love finding reasons to use... (I always think that if the table is pretty, the guests will forgive the food…). I was ready and waiting. Anyhow, I’m sure you’re wondering about the verdict on the vol au vent?  My opinion, and it’s shared by our expert guest is that they could have been lighter.  His word was that they needed more “fluff”! I need some practise. The dinner ended with pears poached in chardonnay spiced with star anise, cardamom and cinnamon.  Served in a beautiful Millstone pottery bowl and garnished with roses which, after the rain, are producing an autumn flush That said, it was an evening of good wine, laughter and conversation which ended with, not a good bye, but “Until next time…” They will probably return to the village in November.

[Rising to the occasion] Early in summer, Swiss swallows returned to the village. As they do.  Anyhow, over a glass or two of wine, he asks: “Haff you ever made vol au vents?  Do you know vot they arr? I luff vol au vents” Yes, I know what they are.  No, I’ve never made them. “Vill you make them for Sunday Supperrr?” Well, guess what?  I did. For Sunday Supper on a Tuesday.  Hope they enjoy them.

[Barley - better than rice?] It was quite a weird weekend - no diners for Sunday Supper. A mixed blessing, but not just because it gave us a night off, but also because the box of ripening tomatoes - destined for the fresh tomato soup - was pinched off our veranda.  Because my kitchen is rather small, I have an outside prep area and the tomatoes were stashed (or so I thought) where they’d be missed. Not. The gap was discovered on Sunday morning and had we had bookings, instant panic would have ensued. Anyhow, no bookings always means a much more simple supper and, if I’ve the inclination, some experimenting in the kitchen.  This Sunday ratatouille was on the menu and I went ahead with that but in the absence of fresh tomatoes used a tin of chopped tomatoes.  A whole one. That was a mistake - we ended up with Mediterranean vegetables in tomato. Not ratatouille. That was somewhat rescued by my deciding that we’d eat it with barley instead of rice.  I cooked in some newly-made chicken stock and with mozzarella, the supper was more than acceptable, even if the ratatouille could not be redeemed!

[Sunday Supper and special notes from diners] Last evening we had our first taste of what winter will bring. Cold (by comparison) and blustery. Diners arrived all bundled up and eating alfresco was not even a consideration. The menu reflected the weather, and clearing diners' plates suggests, as do their lovely notes, that it was just what the doctor ordered. The butternut - specifically mentioned - was roasted with olive oil and a local herb and Himalayan salt product. The gravy - made the way my Mum taught me, and dessert, a traditional South African favourite. Seems my baking skills are improving. Desserts and baking have been my biggest challenge of the Sunday Supper journey.

[Beans - another bucket of bounty] A couple of weeks ago, The Husband declared the beans spent. After presenting me with a measly picking. No point in watering them any more. Waste. Then we had about 50mm of rain. Yesterday, he presented me with another bucket of bean bounty. They became part of a salad supper on a day when the weather belied autumn. Along with the tomatoes - more garden loot.
