    • Very summery squares!

    • Wow!!!! 

    • Love these Patricia bright and cheerful. 

    • These are GORGEOUS!! With just two colours it really highlights the pattern (for me) as I'm not distracted with a splash of multiple colours. LOVE them!!

    • These are so bright and cheerful.  Well done.

  • Foodie fun fact, thought, ideas about food in South Africa.

    Some of the most popular spices:

    Peri-Peri - You will see peri-peri spelled piri piri or even peli peli in other parts of Africa. Derived from the Swahili term pilipili, it means pepper pepper and refers to bird’s eye chiles. These tiny peppers are used to bring heat to various African cuisines including South Africa’s cooking. 


    Peri-peri peppers are moderately hot with a savory and slightly grassy flavor. They may be served as a condiment at a braai, which is a South African barbecue. They may also be chopped up and used to season the spicy beef dish known as trinchado that was brought to South Africa by Portuguese settlers.

    Durban Curry Powder - Durban curry powder comes from the city of Durban in the KwaZulu-Natal province. It is considered one of the best curry powders in the world. Durban is the home of the majority of South Africa’s Indian immigrants which is why many of the city’s dishes have such a heavy Indian influence. Most of these immigrants are from the states of Gujarat and Tamil Nadu, so the food from Durban tends to be on the spicy side.

    Braai salt-Braai is one of the culinary traditions that all of South Africa’s ethnicities have in common. Braai salt is a dry rub that can include ingredients such as mustard, coriander, and cumin. These spices may be used to cook meats ranging from beef and lamb to more exotic proteins like ostrich and kudu.


    Something Sweet...

    Koeksister - A koeksister  is a traditional Afrikaner confectionery made of fried dough infused in syrup or honey. There is also a Cape Malay version of the dish, which is a fried ball of dough that is rolled in desiccated coconut called a koesister.



    • Oh yes Amy we love  all of those...smiled at the Braai Salt we all seem to use it. 

      • Now I have to go order some from Amazon...

  • I fancied making some bobble squares. The top one is a bunny rabbit and, although I feel the nose/mouth area looks a bit confused, I hope the ears will be enough to give it away!


    • GREAT squares, Patricia....I LOVE a bobble square (when someone else makes it) My fave is the star.
