This is the day 5 post, a little late but better than never. The day 6 post is likely to be late also, as I am off to braai and drink sjampajne (Afrikaans for champagne, I have learnt all the essential nouns as you can see).

So you have an audio blog from me today, on how to make Afrikaans Bobotie. It’s very tasty. Click the link below to receive the knowledge!

      Oh Martine you are such a terrible enabler! :o) Thanks for the encouragement, I will give it some thought. Probably over a glass of Blue Nun!

  3. PODCAST, PODCAST, PODCAST!!!! Was a wonderful surprise to hear your voice, we really should do a skype stitch and bitch sometime. The joys of not working when I’m at home is anytime is wine o’clock so time difference is irrelevant.
