I am a very impulsive person, but only when it comes to doing things. Let met clarify, I don’t normally say things without thinking about it twice, but I will volunteer to do things on the spur of the moment. Usually, about two minutes later I wish I didn’t.
First, let met give you some background on me. I am not a very good cook. I tend to over think and then, as a result, over complicate things all the time. I start out following a recipe, but somewhere down the line I tend to loose interest (or get confused) and then just start adding things all over the place. The result, more often than not, is disaster.
I love having people over for dinner etc. but we usually just end up making a braai or if inspiration hits, a potjie. I don’t normally do the whole “Sunday lunch” thing, except for my parents because they will always say how wonderful the food is. Bless them!
So why oh why, I ask you, did I invite friends of ours (who we haven’t seen for ages) over for Sunday lunch??? Don’t get me wrong, I’m so looking forward to seeing them again, but why did I say I’m making Sunday lunch? Why not just a braai or potjie?
I have been having sleepless nights, driving my husband up the wall deciding what I should make for this looming lunch. Should I try something new, or stick with what I know? Deon very democratically steered me away from unexplored territory and instead suggested that I keep to what I know.
So, Heather and Rudi, gear yourselves up for some old fashioned boerekos. Oh, and mom, prepare yourself for some few phone calls regarding said boerekos.
