Yesterday was Heritage Day in South Africa.
It was also National Braai Day. A day on which most South Africans celebrate this holiday by braai-ing something…
Braai is the South African word for barbecue, but it’s not like barbecue at all. A braai takes time!
We make a fire with wood, we kuier (meaning chatting-laughing-drinking-laughing-chatting) around it until the wood has turned to coals and are perfectly hot for the meat (or whatever you fancy braai-ing). Then the meat is braai-ed perfectly until done (or ready to eat, sometimes not so done…), and THEN… the braai-broodjies come. Braai-broodjies are so special, it needs a post all on its own!
So on this day David and I braai-ed our breakfast, hence the photo, and later we braai-ed dinner, which were chops, wors and braai-broodjies.
Oops… I see our table needs paint hahaha!
