If you look  carefully you can see the table is wet ;-) We usually eat on place-mats, but we removed them for this photo to show the lovely table.

Braai-broodjies (braaied toasted sandwich) The traditional braaibroodjie is done by making a sandwich with cheese (I prefer aged cheddar), tomato, onion, chutney, salt and pepper with butter on the outside. Braai this sandwich in a closed grid over very mild coals until the outsides are golden brown and the cheese is melted.” – Getaway Blog

We also bought some Chutney, rusks, curry, mielie-pap, etc.
