I've had some interesting foods lately! Banana and bacon pizza is delicious, butternut soup (thick and tasty), bobotie, which is kind of like shepherds pie, and lots of pudding. Here in the Timbavati, I have spent some time learning some new recipes with the family I stayed with in the bush camp. Now i'm on the hunt for a South African cookbook, hopefully I can find it in Pretoria or Joburg!
Malva pudding is quite popular, its a vanilla sponge cake type pudding, then there's milk pudding which is also delicious. You can either make a milktart, or just make the filling and have it by itself.
I am now right outside Pretoria on a farm with an Afrikaans family helping them. When the milk comes in the morning and afternoons from the cows, i pour it into bottles for sale. People come by the farm throughout the day so I sell it to them. In the afternoon, one of the calves walked over to the kitchen, so i hung out with him in the kitchen for a while The family has a 51/2 month old son who talks alot, so its nice to have dinner with grandmas and grandpas and all that. I can understand Afrikaans (if its spoken slowly), and they speak english as well anyways. It's nice and relaxed here at the farmhouse. Maybe tomorrow I will learn some more cooking/recipes from one of the women here!
