These days I never really use a recipe for soup, I've made it enough times and it's such a forgiving meal that I just don't bother. Converse from say a white sauce, for which I always feel...

Re: Extra ingredients, or help I have buttermilk.

Chakalaka was traditionally a "black South African" dish but as we've (slowly, so very imperfectly) become a more integrated society, there's been a greater exchange of cultural elements like food. So your mom probably wouldn't have grown up with it. Good theory, but I asked her about it ...

Re: Extra ingredients, or help I have buttermilk.

I really like beans so maybe I'd prefer that? I dunno. I really need some kind of expert to make some for me. My mother is Afrikaans but I never had it growing up, to my recollection.

If I did ever cook it, I know what I'd have going around my head.

Re: Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

I have a vague recollection of some propaganda from the craft scene that there's evidence that having people drink craft reduces alcohol consumption. I think it was around craft beer but it really is the haziest of memories.

Makes sense though. I can't afford to drink all I'd like.
