Re: British EU referendum in June [update: Leave wins 52% - 48%, politics ensue]

It’s a song she wrote herself, “for the true patriots”, although she admits she hasn’t performed it in public since the days she “wore ...

Re: The (Sub)Urban Farmer

That's a nice looking fig. We have a very fruitful pomegranate tree that appears to be fairly safe from the local birds - this year I harvested all the fruit, ended up with about 50 nice pomegranates. Had to give most of them away, I never got around to making molasses like I planned.

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 ...

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.
