Super 14 Final today: Stormers vs Blue Bulls in Soweto! By far a historic game!

I’m going to share my secret snack dip recipe with you. It never flops, and everyone loves it.

imageYou need:

  • Tub of smooth cottage cheese
  • Your favourite flavour potato bake

Mix half a packet of potato bake with a tub of cottage cheese. More potato bake will make it too stiff to dip, then it’s a spread ūüėČ

That’s it! Grab some chips, crackers and pretzels and enjoy! This recipe is quick enough to slap together during half time.

#49.    Make Christmas Lunch from scratch

And it came out Fabulous!

We planned on a cold lunch. Mom in law made leg of lamb (it’s a given and there’s no getting out of it). Oh, and she made a noodle-curry salad that Dad in law wanted. The rest was all my cooking ūüėČ

Made stuffed chicken breasts that I sliced into ‘wheels’ when it cooled and set a bit. Made little meatballs (Henk’s order); filled eggs and ‘groen balletjies’ – recipes in Kook en Geniet; Maryke’s potato salad; and found a new trifle recipe in Huisgenoot. Couldn’t find any meringue in Spar, so I made my own – nearly burned out my hand mixer in the process. Who knew 4 egg whites can fluff up so much! We’re still munching on leftover meringues. (Will post the trifle recipe soon.)

Splurged a bit with the decorations – theme colours were silver, grey and blue. See my¬†DIY napkin rings here. Hung¬†some silver and blue¬†balls from the ceiling, silver crackers on the table, silver chocolate balls and silver candles formed the a little¬†centrepiece. And I actually had to rent the napkins from the events planner since I couldn’t find any in our shops o_O

You know people are enjoying your food when silence dawns on your table.

Next year it’s a Mar√© Christmas.
