Idiot Driver Can’t Park

I went to the mall on Wednesday to do some final grocery shopping for Christmas and when I got back to my car (that’s it on the left) I had to get in through the passenger door (we have right hand drive cars in South Africa) because some idiot had come along and tried to park in the same bay as I was.

Summer Holidays

It’s been far too long since I posted anything, so here is an image that I took a few days ago that describes the season nicely.

Here’s what I made for supper tonight.

It was an experiment, not from a recipe but here is roughly what I did.

Chopped a red and a green pepper roughly and chucked them in the pot to soften with some chopped onion, stirred in a little cider vinegar and a teaspoon each of curry powder and masala. Added a can of chopped Italian tomatoes and left that to cook while I cubed the chicken. Once the chicken was in and had cooked for about five minutes I drained a can of red kidney beans and chucked them in before putting the lid on and leaving it to simmer on a low heat.
