We are fortunate to have an abundance of Avocados in SA.  I know several people who have two or more trees absolutely laden with fruit.   One is my opposite neighbour and I can have as many as I want simply by collecting 3 or 4 for her when she needs them.

But I suppose you can also have too much of a good thing, and moderation in all things is the ideal

A Tanzanian fellow I know has 2 wives.  He admits that was a mistake but now is saddled with both of them.   That is where moderation should be applied

This thread needs more vegetarian converts. Drink more beer. Weißbier will get you there quicker.

All this transpired from a local oktoberfest, I've thrown on the hob and fried up some fatty back bacon in lard and eggs in the glorious bacon fat. Things are a bit slow this morning.

I caught my local butcher out that they started blending in soya into their mince. They deny it, but I now buy elsewhere. I feel it in my ankles. When one specialises on one kind of sustenance one becomes very attuned with the nature of what one eats.

Avo flesh has great fat. Stable and moderate in PUFA. Fruit fats (olive too) are a far healthier option than seed oils.

Difficult to get good meat in this country, which makes no sense at all. We used to buy from Braeside butchery, but they also started slipping. Their shop in Greenside has now closed down. I guess you can't fool all the people all the time. Now we buy from Culinary which is always great, but a schlep to get to Lanseria. Also from Farm Table in Linden, but not cheap.

Woolies Free Range is an OK compromise in terms of quality/price/convenience, but I'm pretty sure their beef is finished on grain not grass. I couldn't get a straight answer from them.

Checkers have nice lamb in their Natural range.

We used to buy from Braeside Butchery m-a-n-y years ago, surprised to hear they still existed until recently. I was a snotty-nosed kid in Parkhurst back in those days!

Their meat was always very good and reasonably priced. Then they moved from Parkhurst to Greenside and started concentrating on supplying the catering industry I think. The quality took a dramatic turn for the worse and we stopped buying from them. They shut the shop down a few weeks back. I suspect the supply business is still going.

Hmmm, I have fond memories of arriving home with a few mates (all of us on bikes) at around 02h00 from an Oktoberfest & us all agreeing that was the perfect time to grill some anchovies as we were starving.

Being too lazy to light the braai we used the oven. It took 2 days for the aroma to leave the house.

I have it on good authority that that evening (morning) contributed to my divorce.

To prevent such circumstance ever reoccurring I now no longer ride the bike to any Oktoberfest. After all, everyone over 40 knows that bottle & throttle don't mix!
