As Boing pointed out in her comment on yesterday's Heritage Day post, today is also Braai Day. A braai (or barbeque) is a traditional South African pastime. It is so part of South Africans that some group decided to celebrate Braai Day on Heritage Day as it is a intricate part of our heritage. So to celebrate Braai Day, we braai'd this afternoon. And went all out. Hey, whats the use celebrating something half hearted?
So from left to right: Boerewors (farmer style sausage), Skilpaatjies (or Karoo Oysters, which is minced lamb's liver wrapped in fat), Sirloin steak, Lamb chops, Lamb ribs and pieces of Lamb flank. The Braai broodjie (toasted sandwich made on the coals with tomato, onion, cheese and chutney) followed as soon as the meat came off. I am stuffed with left overs for tomorrow.
