A HAT-TRICK OR TWO!!!!
June 10, 2010 in Uncategorized
I just could not wait to sneak these two recipes in ………. Nando’s is trying to bribe the Mexicans into losing ….. HAIBO!!! I am gonna slaan hulle toe – quietly with my Mexican Shoot-ou t!!!!! We won’t even NEEED a penalty shoot-out brothers and sista’s – we won’t need to bribe my brothers and sista’s – they won’t stand a cha-ans!
This partay is gonna rock the socks of the world off people !!! They say that timing is EVERYTHING – and this is one of those impossible “moments in time” when everything is just as it should be. We are totally on course with our destiny here in Africa. I would say that we were due a hat-trick or two here down south of the equator.
I would say that the 1st Golden Goal of this celestial hatrick was scored on 11 February 1999 when our beloved Nelson Mandela was released from jail. Have a look at the father of our Nation walking free at last here. I still get tears in my eyes when I watch this – “Ngiyabonga kakhulu Baba!”.
The “freedom” game was well and truly on now and after much whistle blowing we got another shot at the goal from an off-side penalty – and we ALL voted in the very first ever democratic election in South Africa. Eish – ’twas a loooong time coming – considering we are the “cradle of humankind” – click here to witness the magic!!! Golden Goal Number 2!!
So we settled down the the business of building a new nation and democracy – no one ever said that this huge task would be easy! – Then out of the blue the whistle blew loud and clear – and it could be heard above the roar of the nation. We took our place in history – “with pride and dignity” and our beloved Mandela was there – to lift us up again…… and here is Golden Goal Number 3!
Who knows – when the next Golden Goal will be – soon I think! I hear that Mr Mandela is attending the opening – bless him!!!! But one thing is fo sho people – we are ALL AFRICANS and we have the ability to rise up holding hands together and singing joyous songs of praise …… and dancing – dancing the DISKI DANCE!!!! Grab your vuvu’s people and VU – up a storm!!!

This is a wiiiiiiiiiiiiiner – it tastes like no other ice cream you have ever tasted before!
True’s Nonnies Kapela – try this people – Mnandi kakhulu!!!
2 cups of icing sugar
2 vanilla pods
100ml lime juice
the juice of 1 lemon
2 tbl spoons of tequila
4 tbl spoons of Cointreau (orange liquere)
500ml of fresh cream
This is all done in a flash – it takes less than 10 minutes and requires no fancy ice cream making
In a large bowl add the:
icing sugar, lime juice, lemon juice, tequila, cointreau and mix.
Using a sharp knife – cut the vanilla bean into 2 halfves and using the back of a knife, scrape out the
beans and add them to the bowl.
Give this magic potion a good stir and add the fresh cream.
Beat this mixture with an electric beater for about 5 minutes until it is
nice and thick – thicken to the point of making folds when
you lift the mixture out – NOT STIFF – soft folds!!!!
Your mixture should look like this.
Pour the ice cream into a container that has a lid – like a
lock-lock and leave in the fridge for about 5 hours.
It is not going to set to a rock hard consistency – a nice creamy soft limey – vanillary
Serve in glasses – with lime rind grated over and decorate as you wish
I could not resist using my porcupine quills and sparklers!!
Love a bit of sparkle!!!
