Vegetable Braai Sprinkle

Here is a vegetable sprinkle to take your braai veggies from token to moreish!  Your vegetarian and vegan friends will really appreciate your effort and this is a really simple mix to have at hand.  Mix in a shaker if you have one or a small bowl and your fingers work will work just as well.

Use it on any vegetables but it is especially great on squash and sweet potatoes.

Sage One Small Business Awards

  It was so fun being a finalist in Sage One  Small Business Awards. Here I am being chummy with Cape Talk's Breakfast host, Kieno Kammies. (he had his picture taken with everyone) Sivo Mongo of Ziyahlanjwa Laundry Services in Khayelitsha was the winner. A truly inspirational story and a heartwarming result. Ziyahlanjwa means "they are being washed" in Xhosa.  I will definitely call on her for Spaza laundry jobs in the future.  If you need a reason to smile today, listen to her story or read Cape Talk's article below. http://sba.capetalk.co.za/articles/4929/inspirational-once-tiny-township-laundry-service-scoops-small-business-awards
