Birthday food
To celebrate Paul's birthday yesterday, we started our day with breakfast at Pastis Brasserie in Constantia. In addition to our pain au chocolat and coffee, I had a croque madame (toasted baguette with cheese, ham and egg) and Paul had pain perdu (French toast with banana, bacon and syrup).

Pastis is lovely and laid-back, surrounded by plenty of trees and filled with all things French. They also have free wi-fi, so I think I'll be heading there to do some work on a few of the hot afternoons we're expecting in January and February. :)

Although we didn't have a camera with us last night (very unusual behaviour!), and consequently don't have a photo to show you, I have to mention the outstanding dinner we had at Yum in Vredehoek. I had a beef rump risotto and Paul had a Jagermeister rump - and we both agreed that this was the best restaurant dinner we've had in a very long time. If you're in Cape Town now or some time in the future, put Yum on your list of places to visit. And we weren't paid, bribed or offered free food to say this. (Although that would be nice, of course. ;-) )
