Cricket Lovers

One of South Africa’s favorite past times is watching cricket. It is the second most popular sport and is the only sport in South Africa to feature in the top two sports of all race groups.

Yesterday, I was very lucky to be able to attend the first day of the last test between South Africa and Australia. Our boys did so well, and bowled the Ozzies out for just 209. Seeing lots of wickets fall (against the another team) is much more fun than watching them bat all day!

As promised here is the recipe for the Spicy Pilchard Fishcakes, which we took on our last hike. They are perfect for picnics and would go down very well at the cricket too.

Spicy Pilchard Fishcakes.

1 410g Tin Chili Pilchards

52g Packet of Smash (Instant mash potato)

1 grated Onion

2 Chopped chilies (Optional)

Oil to fry

Empty the pilchards into a bowl, with all of the sauce.

Mash the pilchards and then add the onion, the Smash and the chilies (if using).

Leave to chill in the fridge for about an hour (this makes it easier to work with).

Form into cakes and fry on medium hot heat until browned.

Serve hot or even better chilled.

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
