My mom and I decided to start some travel food posts Many years ago my mother traveled around Europe and loved it. We both have a love for food and for traveling and because I love to cook my mom is always encouraging me to try and create new dishes or to try dishes I have not made or had before.While the first few dishes are going to be simple and easy one’s because my mom had a very limited budget but always we needed to look at what was on special. We were able to get 7kgs of potato for really cheap at the pick n pay which is our local supermarket.
The first country we decided to start with is England.This country is very dear to us as we have lots of family there some of which we have not met yet and some we have.
So welcome today to our first travel food blog. When my mom went to England she was eighteen years old and she went with her older sister. They were blessed with a trip oversees by my grandfather as they had not had an opportunity to travel as much as there brothers had. They decided to do a contiki tour which started in London and ended in Athens. At the time my mom was Three months pregnant with me.They spent about a month traveling.
We have decided to do the following dishes because they are traditional dishes in England.
Bubble and Squeak
Fish and Chips
Bangers and Mash
A pie dish
Bread and butter pudding
The dish we decided to do first is Bubble and Squeak. It is traditionally a leftovers dish were you can just throw all remaining cooked vegetables from a roast together. This bubble and squeak you can make from scratch.The main ingredients in bubble and squeak are potatoes and cabbage but you can add any other vegetable
Bubble and Squeak Recipe
500g chopped and peeled potatoes
Two tablespoons butter
Cook the potatoes in boiling water until soft. Once it is done put it in the mixing bowl with the butter, cabbage, vegetables and cheese then mash until smooth. Once mashed shape them in flat circles until all are finished. Heat oil in a frying pan and add as many as much bubble and squeek as you can. Then turn every five minutes until golden brown. Once done serve as a side dish.
Us South Africans we love to braai and we braai any chance that we get. We braai on public holidays, days off, weekends, if there is no power. You name it we will braai and we don’t really need an excuse to do it. It is a great way to socialise or spend time with family. I also find it very relaxing.
Yesterday was my moms day off work. We woke up fairly late, discussed what food we were going to cook this week and what we were going to do the whole day. We went to the shops with my landlords 3 year old grandson and his mom. I spent the time at the shops on WiFi downloading videos while my mom and the others went and bought groceries for a change we got home from the shops early.This never happens as my mother loves to abuse the WiFi at the shops.
My mom, my landlords grandson and I then braaied. I then started an awesome braai. I braaied boerewors that my mom bought with cheese and then I made Roast vegetables.
Ruby Roast Vegetables
Mild Chilli Spice
Chop up all the veg and add mild chilli spice. Put it in tin foil with a little bit of oil and either put it in an oven or on a braai or you can put it in a pot like we did because we had no tin foil and put the pot on the braai.
It was an awesome end to an amazing day.

So on Wednesday I decided to buy a braai.It was very spur of the moment but we often have power outages and so it will help. I bought boerewors and my son braaied it and added cheese on top to make it like a cheese griller.
So this week I decided to make my most favorite dish in the world and the result was once again amazing
Cook the macaroni as per instructions on the packet.While the macaroni is cooking. brown the mince and add the veg with the mince. Once mince,veg and macaroni is done. pour both into a casserole dish and cover with cheese and put in a preheated oven and bake for half an hour. Once done serve hot.
So we have had a rather hectic last couple of weeks.My mom got flu again and had to go to the doctor to be put on Antibiotics.She got better and then we think she had food poisoning boy was she not well. We had decided to try out a new restaurant at woolworths called the woolworths cafe and she was sick that night.
We also finally managed to get my SASSA grant approved after trying for a year and a half. I was accepted into hospitality college and then to our surprise offered a full scholarship. I am on my way to becoming a chef.Then to top it all of my best friends Dad suddenly passed away so i spent a few days being a really good friend.
