Many travelers have been reunited with loved ones during the past few weeks following severe Covid19 lockdowns in countries all over the world.
I am soooo happy to report that our son is finally back home after a month long wait for a repatriation flight back to African soil from Russia; miracles do happen indeed as it looked like he and around 90 other South Africans would have had to wait till early July for a flight back home but our SA Embassy really came to the party and arranged this flight that nearly got hijacked but I told that story last week!
He did a short stint in a very nice quarantine hotel and after being tested could fly back home to self-quarantine here at home in separate quarters.
Our Lily's Cottage is open again and we have some good bookings for early July from regular business guests, so we should recover our losses soon as we are small; I cannot begin to imagine how difficult it's going to be for large concerns with big overheads!
We have to abide by a strict Covid19 Safety Pledge, but that's no problem as our units are well apart from each other so it is easy to practice safe distancing.
A quick update on Recycling Left-over Vegetable off-cuts with some pics of some of the little shoots showing their heads; obviously some have been in the ground a little longer than others, but I will soon have spring onions, leeks and carrot tops to add to my cooking. Sweet Basil and Mint shoots that's been standing in water is rooting nicely and will be planted out soon! The Rosemary seems to be a tad stubborn to root, but I will be patient;
All good things come to those who wait, not so!
Our son's homecoming also meant a ton of washing as everything had to be sanitized...just in case some of those pesky viruses decided to jump onto his apparel and travel across to Africa;)
The quickest breakfast I could think of this Monday morning was one of my favourites - Banana & Peanut Butter on Homemade Artisan Bread Toast.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF PEANUT BUTTER & BANANAS
This sandwich keeps me going for quite some time, and I believe it's as both Peanut Butter and Bananas are loaded with nutrients.
Peanut butter has Potassium, Protein, monounsaturated Fat, Fibre, Magnesium, Vitamin E as well as Antioxidants.
Some amazing health benefits are:
- Aids in weight loss
- Improves blood circulation
- Excellent for heart health
- Great option for diabetics
- Reduces risk of breast cancer
We live in a subtropical climate with many Banana farms on the lower south coast so no wonder our provincial rugby team used to be called The Banana Boys, but their name was changed a couple of years ago to The Sharks; sounds much more menacing not so:)
Banana plantations on the lower South Coast of Kwazulu Natal
Bananas are rich in carbohydrates, fibre, vitamins B6, and minerals like potassium and manganese and has the following benefits:
- Provides instant energy
- Fights muscle cramps
- Maintains good blood pressure
- It is a great antacid as it coats the lining of the stomach and suppresses acid secretion
- Helps you recover faster after diarrhea
- It is a natural probiotic
Anyone for the last slice?
I really hope things are starting to improve in your part of the world with regards to this pesky virus; just keep on building up your immune system by exercising, getting enough sun and good nutrients as we should be doing at all times!
Hope you enjoyed my quick and easy breakfast sandwich today!
