Food (meat) discussion and pics - I was cooking a local dish with some indigenous stuff today :) 

The green things in the tub are waterblommetjies - 'water flowers'. They're a local pondweed native to this area - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aponoget - the indigenous Khoikhoi people taught settlers how to use it in stews and for medicine. The herbs are wild sage and an unknown (I get a bag of random herbs from local growers every week), and the third is the stew, called 'bredie', with lamb and potatoes.

Oh, and if you're in a few other parts of the world - Australia, France, England, southern and western California - waterblommetjies are apparently widely naturalised there, so you, too, can make a waterblommetjiebredie :)
