Disaster has struck! I am planning a braai tonight (never mind that it is already cold here in Switzerland) and I went all the way across town to the butcher I know who lived in Cape Town for a few years and knows how to make boerewors - only to find out he is sold out! His only saving grace was that he had biltong!
In addition to making all the braai meat classics (lamb sosaties, steak, peri peri chicken and mielies) I found great recipes on The Pretty Blog for salads (this one and this one) and for the first time I am making "melktart". I have already made three mistakes in the recipe (so you most likely you won't be seeing any photos of the tart) and I am thinking my plan B will be ice cream chocolate sauce aka the Spur Classic we all grew up with!
Needless to say, I want to wish you all a very proudly South Africa Heritage Day and I am going give up on cooking and to stick with cool crafts like this awesome welcome banner I made for our door for my SA braai I hosted earlier this year in our summer.
