AW- sorry I didn't pop in yesterday- Bunny sent her bad sinus headache MY way so she could go out- She did I tell you-lol. I crashed on the bed yesterday afternoon with some pain pills, but feel better again today! SPRING is not good for my poor nose! And the wind doesn't help me any either-. We are having gale force winds here today and today is actually a public holiday here- It's our National Heritage Day- but somehow it's been re-nick named to *South African BRAAI day*- lol. It's today the we are all supposed to braai to celebrate our heritage- UHUM_ I DON'T THINK SO- BWHAHAHAHAHA, not if we want to fetch our chops and wors in Durban at this stage! Actually if I stand outside today you might find ME in Durban too- HAHAHAHA.
A Braai is what Americans call a BBQ- yet it's an integral part of our culture- we braai sometimes 3x a week, it's a tasty, healthy fun way of cooking and socializing.
Chops and Sosaties, YUM! all cooked over an open fire on a grid.
And the sausage on there is called WORS - (vors). A braai is just not a braai without it-lol
And another traditional way of cooking on the fire is in the *tri-legged* pot.
Stews, Curry's and just about anything gets cooked in these and this usually takes a whole days socializing around the fire while it cooks SLOWLY -
OBVIOUSLY you have to have a good SA wine to sip while waiting for all this to get done- LOL. I got these pics from a South African tour and travel site- as well I have a ton of Braai pics- but NONE of the food side-just a lot of friends parting and having fun- LOL. You can click on the link if you are interested to see some more- they even have some recipe links too ;-)
