OK, so tomorrow is Heritage Day … aka Braai Day.
But my sons and I are all natural blondes (and sometimes slow), so we’ve decided to have our Braai Day on Sunday.
We’re also all more-than-slightly genetically challenged in the braai department.
I don’t admit to this lightly … our recent first-attempt at using the built-in braai at our new house was slightly less than successful. We were advised (after the fact) that using up the anthracite from our old house wasn’t the brightest idea we’d had this century.
You don’t say? Hell, even the cheese on the ‘braai-broodtjies’ my friend insisted on making didn’t melt & the wors was still raw after 30 minutes … we eventually resorted to using the kitchen facilities, which were so much more effective.
Younger Teen (14) and I enjoyed a more impressive braai 2 weeks ago.
Briquettes are clearly a much better idea than anthracite!
But we’ve never been a real braai-family & are all in the mood to change this un-heritagelike attitude.
So, as I said, we’re having a braai on Sunday … and the boys have suggested inviting Sue Chef & Himself to join us.
Does anyone have any braai’t suggestions for what we should serve?
The Teens & I will go through any (oh, please let there be some, otherwise our guests will starve) suggestions here & I’ll post the results, regardless of what they look like!
