Stanford, a place to call home

“And all at once, Summer collapsed into Autumn.”

Oscar Wilde
It is said that Autumn is the second Spring when it comes to flower and foliage varieties and no where is it more beautifully noticeable than when you are strolling along our Wandelpad. This had me thinking about how privileged we are to live in our beautiful village.

Not only are rural neighbourhoods quieter and more picturesque, but they’re also known for being safer, with less crime, pollution, litter and traffic.
This makes them ideal for older people, parents raising young families, or simply those who want to live a more secure and health-conscious life, away from the hustle and bustle of the urban centres.
What we love most is the Stanford Lifestyle, walks with your dogs on the Wandelpad next to the river, sundowners with friends, meeting up at one of our cosy coffee shops, growing vegetable gardens and building community.
Stay safe, keep smiling under your mask and make the most of every day.

Autumn fun recipe of the month

The days may still be warm, but the nights certainly have a chill to them, and what better way to celebrate the chilliness of autumn than with a mouthwatering pumpkin, leek and spinach quiche...

Pumpkin, leek and spinach quiche

  • 700g butternut pumpkin, peeled, cut into
  • 2cm pieces
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1 leek, pale section only, halved lengthways, washed, dried, thinly sliced crossways
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 100g baby spinach leaves
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) skim milk
  • 80g (1/3 cup) fresh low-fat ricotta
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil leaves
  • Mixed salad leaves (optional), to serve
Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a large baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Place the pumpkin on the lined tray and drizzle with olive oil. Season with pepper. Bake in oven for 25 minutes or until golden.

Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Spray lightly with olive oil spray to grease. Add the leek and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until soft. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until soft. Add the spinach and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until the spinach just wilts.

Line a 26 x 16cm (base measurement) pan with non-stick baking paper. Spread the pumpkin and leek mixture evenly over the base of the pan.
Whisk together the eggs, egg whites and milk in a jug. Pour egg mixture evenly over pumpkin and leek mixture. Sprinkle evenly with ricotta. Bake for 20 minutes or until puffed and golden. Sprinkle with the basil. Serve with mixed salad leaves, if desired.
