Our Family Braai

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

Ingredients

Sweet Potato

Beetroot

Butternut

Red Onion

Mild Chilli Spice
Method

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.
