    I have been living in Thailand for the past 5-years never been back to SA once, however we are packing up and leaving for home next month!
    The thing I have been missing the most was bier, braai, mutton, potjies, biltong and rugby.
    This potjie looks delicious and ill definitely give it a try backhome.
    You can check out my blog for some rugby info to go along with your potjie.
