Our Botswanan cuisine night

This is going to be our last cuisine night before baby arrives. Thankfully, I think it was one of our best – and definitely my favourite of the African cuisines we’ve tried.

 

Entree

Seswaa with bulgur wheat pilaf

I didn’t have huge hopes for this one, but I was pleasantly surprised. The meat ended up very tender and juicy and the pilaf had loads of flavour. Technically it was supposed to be millet, but we substituted bulgur wheat instead and I think that worked fine.

 

 

Main

Chicken and peanut stew

This one’s right up there with my top cuisine dishes of all time! A rich peanut and tomato sauce with just a hint of warming spice. It was possibly too rich considering my pregnancy heartburn, but it was worth it.

 

 

Dessert

Lemon and condensed milk biscuits

I don’t know how authentic these are. The recipe said they were Botswanan so I’ll just have to go with that. I love how the consistency of these turned out – crispy on the outside and soft inside. I would add even more lemon next time, because they were absolutely beautiful with a whole lot of lemon juice squeezed on top.

 

Well, we’ve come to the end of our pre-baby cuisine nights. I have no promises when our cuisine nights will return. It just depends on what our baby’s like and how much energy we have. But, I promise you that the cuisine nights will be back eventually in some form. They’re too much fun to give up completely!

  1. I’ve been thinking of you and was wondering if baby had made her entrance into the world. I’m pleased you were able to squeeze in one more cuisine night – everything looks so delicious. The closest we got to Botswana was South Africa and the food there was amazing!
