We are having the most miserable, cold and wet weather in Joburg at the moment. I hope this doesn't mean an early winter for us this year, even though I know that all my northern hemisphere friends are more than ready for an early spring:) Last night we had a power failure, no electricity from 6.00pm until after midnight. That meant takeouts for supper. Also our local supplier had already run out of gas by the time I got there, so my hubby made a fire in the fireplace in the lounge and we spent the evening reading our books by candlelight. Luckily no power problems tonight and I managed to get gas for the gas heaters, so we're nice and cozy....and I'm on the computer.

In this picture, you can see my clay tajine. This is a Moroccan, North African kind of casserole dish. I got it for my birthday about two years ago, and I'm embarressed to admit that I still haven't used it. I am determined to use it this winter, a nice North African dish with couscous will be perfect on a cold winter day. From Wikepedia, "Tajine dishes are slow-cooked at low temperatures, resulting in tender, falling-off-the-bone meat with aromatic vegetables and sauce." Mmmm...that does sound tempting.
