With kids and summer camp and vacation and work travel, it’s easy for the grown-up birthdays in our home to go unmarked.
And so for Dave’s birthday, I invited some close friends round for dinner and decided to do a South-African braai — something we never do.
Our local supplier of all things South African provided the wors and the pap, and the good people of the Internets provided the wisdom:
- Stywe pap with bredie
- Not overcooking the wors
- Hummingbird birthday cake — not at all South African but very much delicious
Rather sad that I’ve been out of South Africa so long that I need directions on cooking mielie meal and making bredie!
We enjoyed Dave’s birthday out under the stars, with a bottle of sparkling wine to toast him, followed by something from our German vino stash. And a good time was had by all.
