We spent our Christmas Money ( Christmas Shopping)

We were given some money as part of our Christmas presents. We decided to go shopping in town where the stores often sell clothes for cheap. We went to two clothing Stores called Ackerman and Pep. We decided to Vlog it so that we could bring you along.

Why did you start Blogging?.

We started blogging a few years back as it was something we both wanted to learn but also as a way to keep a portfolio of the foods that Tristan Cooks so that one day when he is qualifed as a chef and is lookinh for a job he has an online portfolio to show his potential employees.

It is also something we enjoy doing and we both find it a bit therapeutic.

We love being able to share recipes and food experiences with people but we find it difficult to find the time to blog.Over time our love for blogging is slowly growing and we plan on blogging more.

WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING. PLEASE COMMENT BELOW.

A day in our lives

Our day starts pretty early I wake up at 4 and get dressed for work. I walk up to catch the taxi to the taxi rank where I catch another taxi close to work. I then get off and walk about 500m to work. I normally start work at 07:30 but get there by Six. I leave work at 05:30 where I walk up to the taxi rank and wait for a taxi to Alexandra taxi rank where I get on another taxi to go home I normally get home by seven. At that time Tristan will either have dinner cooked or will cook dinner sometimes he just makes a toasted sandwich. I watch T.V and go to bed by 09:30 to start again. Our weekends are different we wake up late go and buy food and really try to relax.

A Day in Tristan’s life is different. He wakes up to help me to get ready, then gets ready himself for college, once he is ready he walks to college where he sometimes spends most of his day, after college he walks home to do some chores and start preparing dinner, whilst dinner is cooking he studies for the next day of college, once dinner is cooked and he is done studying he waits for me to get home while he waits for me to get home he normally continues studying once i am home we have dinner and watch our favourite tv shows then go to bed.

The most divine Fridge Cake

So for my mom’s birthday I came up with the most divine Fridge Cake. I got the idea from a recipe book we were given but adapted it to suite us and It really turned out well. The recipe is very easy and simple to make. It was a real hit with my mom. I made it to go with the braai we were having.

Peach Fridge Cake

Ingredients

1 can of Peaches

1 cup of Orley Whip Cream

2 Packs of Biscuits ( We used Tennis Biscuit.)

1 Can of Nestle Caramel Treat

500 ml Fruit Yoghurt

Method

Place the first layer of biscuits in a baking dish, Once done in a bowl mix the yoghurt, caramel treat and cream together and then pour a thin layer over the biscuits and spread it a little bit. Then put another layer of biscuits and continue until dish is full. Once it is full pour the last bit of Caramel treats mixture and then top with Peaches and then put in the fridge for about an hour. Then serve.

I promise if you serve this dish to your family and friends they will love you forever.
