Dark

Here is a "dark" photo in honor of PhotoHunt's "dark" theme today. Potjiekos cooking over the coals last month - one of Daddy's favorite dishes and part of his South African heritage.
What you don't see (because it's too dark) is the people sitting around watching the food cook.

Great photo! What were you cooking?
I have been catching up on your last few posts. I tend to get behind in the summertime. You do such wonderful crafts with your daughter, how do you come up with such good ideas. I love the frog and will do that with my grand kids some day next week! That was quite a list of things to 'miss'! I would have thought the produce would be in abundance where you live. Shows you how little I know! How long will you be living there? I think we take so much for granted here in the good old US! I would miss so many of those things too. You always have such interesting posts, I always enjoy them!!

I enjoyed your postings as I have gone back through quite a few of them. I am curious as to how you found me in Tulsa, Oklahoma? I hope to visit with you more in the near future.

potjiekos sounds a lot like burgoo, which is a thick soup/stew we make here in kentucky. we cook i all day over a fire in an iron pot using wood to fuel the fire. it gives it a bit of a smokey flavor. the meat in ours is beef roast and deboned chicken. what kind of meat do you use??? vegetables??? (we use corn, carrots, limas, onion, celery, tomatoes, and potatoes (as the starch and thickener)).
your photo is perfect for the "dark" theme:D

A burning charcoal give an impressive effect to this photo. Great shot :)

Baker Watson said...

Cool take on the theme. Or perhaps I should say 'hot' take. There's nothing like gathering around a fire to cook and socialize. Good choice.

Ooo, sitting by some cozy hot coals watching food cook...that sounds like a good time to me!

Nothing better than cooking over a fire with friends sitting around talking -- no tv's, stereos or other distractions -- just good conversation!

Cheers.
