The hashtag for the day was #braaiday… so much for Heritage Day and true to form, we had a braai (or barbecue for those readers not in SA). Our friends Madelein and Pierre came over armed with strawberries and cream, and my parents came armed with homemade chocolate eclairs (which are the bomb!)
It was the perfect summer’s day if you look at the photos… except in reality there was a really chilly wind blowing. That didn’t deter the kids though, and they were insistent on having their first summer swim!
If you’re wondering what we braai’ed… it was lamb boerewors, lamb chops and chicken kebabs… served with warm ciabatta bread, roasted potatoes and onion and an enormous salad.
… with the kids braai’ing marshmallows on the embers right at the end
… before dessert was served… my mom’s chocolate eclairs with yummy strawberries
… and a game of cricket
The only thing missing, was a happy Bradley… he spent most of the day in bed with a headache, which is very unlike him, and I’m about to go and check on him to see whether he’s got a fever again (he had quite a fever last night)
