South African Dinner.

Do you remember when I told you about the dinner party idea that my friends came up with? One Irish meal, one Australian and one South African?

Well last month we had the Irish meal here at my house. The rules for the other two families were to just turn up and we would supply everything. They didn't listen. Although I cooked all the different Irish courses they came laden down with Irish Whiskey, Irish cream liqueur and Irish beers.

Tonight is the South African family's meal. We had no idea what to bring with us so we went shopping. We found South African wine and beer easily enough at a local bottle shop. I had another idea for something that the kids could share.

Here are a few clues...


Have you guessed yet?
Are you thinking sugar rush?
Are you thinking edible flag?


How long do you think it will take for the kids to demolish this lot!
I better go get ready. I have no idea what to expect from this traditional South African meal. I don't know that I have ever actually eaten half the delicacies my friend Lucy has spent the last few weeks preparing. She has mentioned slowly drying out meat and making her own rusks. I'm intruiged....
I'll be reporting back.
