So here I am obeying the Spiritual Head of the House’s command…
Let’s see, what did the weekend have in store for us? Oh yes…it started on Friday night when we had a few people over for dinner. I prepared marinated pork ribs which I cooked under the grill and stir-fried some chinese veges with garlic. It was very, very yummy. We finished off the night with a bit of Mario Kart and Guitar Hero 3, chocolate and chocolate cake.
Saturday started early – swimming lessons for the girls at 7:30am. Scott went to Laserforce for a friend’s birthday and was very happy about all the primary aged kids running around (or should I say, huddling around?!) giving him target practice. That night we had an old friend of mine from Uni come over with her fiance and mum for dinner, as well as Scott’s parents. It was a novel thing, having everyone leave by 9:30pm!
Sunday was a very nice day. We had lunch with Scott’s brother and his girlfriend and a couple of other friends. As she is South African, we were treated to a potjie. The one we ate had oxtail, potatoes, veges and other flavours. It was very, very good – served with rice There were also some koeksisters and biltong. Biltong is addictive. Very addictive. Ah, and then we had Amarula in little chocolate cups to finish things off. What a meal!
We went from there to church and after that to Malaya Corner (for dinner) with Fifi and Haywee EggEgg (see link to side to Bloggin Bros – although they haven’t updated in years ) and another couple from church.
Scott has tried to convince me that we don’t need a potjie pot but he hasn’t been very successful thus far. I figure that if we get one, we can have more people over to eat than if I just cooked in our little slow cooker. I’ve found a place that sells them…and the other South African goodies that we consumed – Springbok Foods.
