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!
