I picked up some fast fry pork chops on my Sunday trip to the butcher. He always saves the remnants from cutting roasts to sell cheap. Often I use them for stir fry or sweet and sour, but I think I am going to double them and stuff with goat cheese, spinach and roasted garlic. I will add a garden salad and brown rice to round out the meal!

Not sure what it will be here. I had originally planned for chicken nuggets but that is out the window now. DH will be working late, the yungun has band rehearsal early, I'm spending the afternoon visiting reception sites with my oldest. I took some shredded beef out of the freezer yesterday. I'll see if there's enough to make burritos. That way we can each make our own whenever we have time to eat. If there's not enough for that, I may sub chicken for the beef.

It's an old term. Just reaching for a third term in the series, I guess lol

We call maize meal pap. If we eat it for breakfast we make it soft like a porridge but as a savoury dish it is cooked to a firmer consistency like this.......



Hope this helps

Tonight we're having Chicken Balti. For those who don't know (and I didn't know until I visited there), Balti is a style of curry that originated in Birmingham, UK. The name comes from the Hindi word for "bucket", and refers to the double-handled wok-type pan the dish is both cooked and served in.

That sounds a lot like our grits (corn porridge) and polenta. Do you know if pap is made from hominy (lye-treated white corn) or yellow corn? It looks white in the picture.

It is made from white corn (we call it maize or mealies), not from sweetcorn. The texture is the same as polenta. I think white polenta is almost exactly the same. I've had polenta and it's very close.

Grits I believe has a coarser texture. We do have a coarse maize meal that we call "braai pap". We make this as a side dish for Bbq's. We cook it to a more crumbly texture like this.....




Hope I've explained well enough.
At the end of the day, white polenta, grits and pap are all pretty much the same thing.

We eat it with many things. Usually stew or relish,morogo or chakalaka.

Chakalaka is a relish made with tomato, onion, carrots and peppers and it's spicy ( the recipe is on my chakalaka eggs thread)

Morogo is african wild spinach that we cook with onion, tomato and stock. Relish is a sauce made from tomatoes, onions and spices including chillies.

Sometimes we have it with butter, milk and sugar for breakfast.

Wild spinach is not always available so we make morogo with swiss chard or beetroot leaves too
