day twenty-one: thanksgiving braai

Instead of a traditional turkey dinner, we had a Thanksgiving braai! (The word means "grilled meat" in Afrikaans, so it's how South Africans refer to a cookout or bbq.) And since it was summer there, it was the perfect time for a cookout. It included many South African traditional staple dishes such as pap and boerewors (in my opinion, very similar to grits and sausage). It was delicious, and a very fun, unconventional way to celebrate Thanksgiving. I've definitely never had a birthday dinner like this before! I would do it again any day...

boerowers and grilled chicken

There were so many people there to celebrate our "American holiday", there weren't enough seats. Good problem to have!
