Gevulde hoenderborsies met pikante aartappels

Huisgenoot resep

800 g aartappels, in blokkies gesny
60 ml (¼ k) olie
5 ml (1 t) mosterdsaad
2 knoffelhuisies, fyn gekap
5 cm vars gemmer, fyn gekap
15 ml (1 e) matige kerriepoeier
2 ml (½ t) borrie
30 g botter
6 sprietuie, in fyn skywe gesny
1 groen brandrissie, fyn gekap
sout en peper

GEVULDE HOENDER
6 hoenderborsies, oopgevlek
150 g camembertkaas
6 repe spekvleis
5 vars salieblare
125 ml (½ k) tamatiesous
45 ml (3 e) balsemieke asyn
15 ml (1 e) esdoringstroop
1 knoffelhuisie, fyngedruk

  1. Voorverhit die oondrooster op hoog.
  2. Kook die aartappels oor matige hitte 8 minute of tot amper sag. Dreineer in ’n gaatjiesbak.
  3. Verhit die olie in ’n pan oor matige hitte, voeg die mosterdsaad by en rooster tot dit begin skiet. Voeg die knoffel, gemmer, kerriepoeier en borrie by en braai ’n paar sekondes terwyl jy roer.
  4. Voeg die botter en aartappels by en braai 5 minute. Voeg die sprietuie, brandrissie, sout en peper by. Verwyder van die stoof en hou warm.
  5. Gevulde hoender: Sny die kaas in 6 stukke en draai elkeen in spekvleis toe. Plaas elke kaaspakkie in die middel van ’n oopgevlekte hoenderborsie, vou toe en steek met skemerkelkiestokkies vas.
  6. Meng die salie, tamatiesous, asyn, stroop en knoffel. Verf oor die hoender. Verplaas na ’n bakplaat en rooster 10 minute. Draai om en bedruip met die oorblywende sousmengsel. Rooster nog 10 minute of tot die hoender se sappe deursigtig is.
  7. Haal die skemerkelkiestokkies uit en sit die hoender voor met die aartappels en ’n tamatiesambal.

Mosterd en SuurdeegMatteus 13:31-35

 

  

Kyk, as jy nou ‘n groot boom wil hê, dan plant jy ‘n groot pit. Vat nou maar ‘n kokosneutpalm: daar is darem maar vir jou ‘n menéér van ‘n pit! In die tropiese eilande waar hulle natuurlik voorkom, staan die bome dikwels reg op die strand. As die kokosneut ryp word, dan val hy af en beland gewoonlik in die see, en so word hy dikwels baie ver daarvandaan op ‘n ander eiland uitgespoel, waar hy wortel skiet en groeI. Baie romanties!

 

Maar die mosterdsaad - dis nou ‘n héél ander storie. Sy pitte is piepklein swart korreltjies, sowat 1mm in deursnee, wat lyk of hulle vir niks anders nut het as om mosterd van te maak nie. Dis mos net bossies wat sulke klein saadjies het. Maar as daardie ou korreltjie eers ontkiem, dan begin hy te groei en groei, totdat hy naderhand ‘n groot struik is, en voor jy weet waar jy is, dan sit jy met ‘n 3 meter hoë boom, en jy slaan jou hande saam in verbasing, want wie sou nou kon dink dat so ‘n boom uit so ‘n klein saadjie sou kon groei.

 

Jesus gebruik die mosterdsaadjie en suurdeeg om die Koninkryk van God voor te stel. Suurdeeg is natuurlik ‘n ander baie handige ding. Het jy al probeer brood bak sonder suurdeeg? Ek bedoel nou regte brood - nie die soort wat jy met bruismeel bak nie. Ek belowe jou: hy kom soos ‘n baksteen daar uit die oond uit - totaal oneetbaar.  Maar meng jy nou suurdeeg in jou meel in, en jy laat hom staan en broei vir so ‘n rukkie, dan sien jy hoe daardie degie al groter en groter word, totdat hy naderhand oor die kante van jou skottel wil loop. En Mamma! hoe smaak so ‘n ou varsgebakte potbroodjie! Hoe water ‘n mens se mond dan nou so vroeg in die môre!

 

Wanneer Jesus hierdie twee beelde gebruik, dan verduidelik Hy iets van die geheim van God se Koninkryk wat ‘n mens na jou asem laat snak. Vir die Jode was dit wat Hy wou tuisbring so totaal anders as wat hulle dit voorgestel het, en selfs vandag nog sukkel ons om die konsep te verwerk. Vir ‘n Jood was die gedagte van grootsheid en heerlikheid diep ingegraveer as hulle aan die Koninkryk van God gedink het, want alles omtrent God het rondom Israel gedraai. Hulle begrip van die Koninkryk van Israel en God se ryk was so verweef, dat wanneer hulle in glorieryke taal van Israel sing, dan is God se Koninkryk terselfdertyd in hulle gedagte.

 

Nou kom Jesus en Hy beskryf God se Koninkryk as ‘n piepklein mosterdsaadjie, en dit skok die Jode uit hulle sokkies uit. Maar die groot geheim daaragter is dat dit nie gering geskat moet word nie, want al was daar aanvanklik net ‘n ou klein handjievol mense wat Jesus aanvaar het, het die evangelie skielik op pinksterdag ontplof, en gegroei en gegroei teen ‘n oorweldigende tempo, totdat dit uiteindelik oor die ganse aarde versprei is. Die ander voorbeeld wat Jesus gebruik - suurdeeg - is ook maar ‘n ou paar niksseggende grys korreltjies wat jy in ‘n skottel meel inmeng, en kyk net watter verrykende invloed het dit op die meel! Soos suurdeegkorreltjies het die eerste Christene die heidenwêreld geïnfiltreer, en die gevolge was absoluut fenominaal.

 

Vandag voel ek en jy as Christene soos klein mosterdsaadjies of grys korreltjies suurdeeg in ‘n oorweldigende wêreld van Goddeloosheid en selfs God-loosheid. As ons sien hoe misdaad in al sy vorms nie alleen in Suid Afrika nie, maar oor die ganse wêreld oor ons spoel, dan voel ons so magteloos. Maar ons moet verby die massas kyk en God se krag en almag raaksien, want in my as klein mosterdsaadjie is ‘n dinamiese groeikrag opgesluit wat net wag om tot uitbarsting te kom. Dankie tog dat dit nie ons eie krag is nie, maar die onmeetbare krag van die Heilige Gees wat in ons opgesluit lê - ons moet maar net toelaat dat Hy daardie Krag in ons kan ontsluit. Die probleem is egter dat ons bang is vir die gevolge, of as ons uiteindelik toegee, dan raak ons moedeloos omdat daar so min gebeur aan die begin. Vat nou maar ‘n mosterdsaadjie: wanneer hy ontkiem dan lyk hy steeds so klein en broos en weerbaar. Dieselfde met suurdeeg: as jy na ‘n paar minute in die skottel loer, lyk jou degie nog maar presies dieselfde - niks het gebeur nie. Maar daar is ongelooflike kragte aan die werk, en die uiteinde is oorweldigend, as jy net genoeg geduld gebruik. Uit my eie lewe kan ek met groot dank aan God getuig van die ongelooflike groeikrag wat Hy jou kan gee.

 

‘n Mosterdsaadjie lyk so niksseggend, maar dit is gepak met energie - 46% olie en 43% proteïen. Net so is die vaalgrys korreltjies van die suurdeeg eintlik ’n lewende organisme wat net wag vir die meel en water om uit te bars. Op dieselfde wyse is die evangelie op die oog af minderwaardig en niksseggend, maar wanneer ek myself tot beskikking daarvan stel, dan kom die volle krag daarin opgesluit in werking.

 

Al wat Hy van jou vra is om gewillig te wees om gebruik te word.

 

Gebed:

 

Here, gebruik my asseblief om U krag in die wêreld tot uiting te laat kom

FW: Pragtige gebed...

 

 



 
Here, help my om vandag al my selfsugtigheid en eie wil weg te was,
Sodat ek U die res van my lewe met nederigheid kan dien.

Here, stryk vandag al die plooie, wat deur die jare versamel het,
Uit my gees sodat ek net die mooi in ander sal sien.

O God, help my dat ek sal regmaak waar ek ander te na gekom het.

Here Jesus, help my om met die stoflap van u genade
Die Klein sondetjies wat in my hart skuil,
Weg te vee en skoon te maak.

O God, gee my asseblief die wysheid om die dinge
Te koop wat nodig is en nie wat ek begeer nie,
Omdat ek weet Here, geen aardse skatte weeg op
Teen dit wat in die Hemel wag nie.

Help my, my Vader om die vrugte van die gees:
Liefde, Vreugde, Vriendelikheid, Vrede, Geduld, Goedhartigheid,
Nederigheid, Getrouheid en Selfbeheersing aan my naaste voor te sit.

O God, ek het my huis vir u voorberei.  
Kom woon asseblief in my hart sodat ek die res van my lewe
In u teenwoordigheid kan deurbring.

Dankie Here, vir al my wonderlike vriende aan wie ek hierdie e-pos gaan stuur.

Swim, lion baby, swim!

 



Swim, lion baby, swim!

As told by Beverly Joubert on Twitter.

When Beverly Joubert arrives at what guides call ‘Joubert’s Island’, in Botswana’s Selinda Reserve she finds two
lionesses and six cubs eyeing out a deep river crossing – a dangerous and difficult swim.



The lionesses want to cross this deep, treacherous river to go and hunt but there is movement in the water and indecision.
There’s something moving in the water.


Three very large hippos are swimming through the exact path that the lionesses and the six cubs, of about 3 months of age, will have to take.


Both lionesses get in the water, making it to small island of reeds. The cubs are scared, swimming back and forth.

The mothers come back, abandoning the swim for now and the cubs seem delighted with that idea.
Then one mother gets back up and starts swimming seriously while the cubs start whining.

The mother gets snapped at by a crocodile. Lots of growling and hissing ensues while the other lioness runs in to help.
The females work together to charge an attack back – these two sisters are tight.


After a rest both lionesses are back in the water, with the cubs and all are making a break for it.
They’re determined, the water calms and they know it’s time to cross.
All the cubs follow the lionesses into the water but they’re not happy!


The cubs are torn; going back and forth while the lionesses strike out seriously for the other side.
Four cubs get in the water and start to swim for their lives. The four cubs are not liking it much but on their way.
The other two cubs spook and turn back to the bank whilst the others carry on.


The two females and four cubs make it across, safe and sound. The two cubs that refused to swim growl and call for their mothers to come back.


Alarm sets in. One of the mothers realises that the two cubs are missing and starts calling for them.

There is clearly a dilemma; the river has separated the family.
The lionesses return, taking the long swim through the hippos to get to the two cubs.
The mothers try to get the cubs in the water but they’re not going.


The lionesses cross the river seven times in the heat of the day to try to keep the four cubs happy while getting the other two across.
With all the splashing the lionesses are incredibly vulnerable to attack and exhausted.
Eventually everyone gives up and the two remaining cubs suckle before everyone lies down to sleep.


An elephant herd arrives, coming to the crossing point. The cubs are out in the open, exposed and the lionesses are not aware of the herd as they are fast asleep.
A lioness leaps up and charges the elephants and the elephants eventually cross the river.

The lionesses attempt three more river crossings but the two cubs are refusing to get wet.
The lionesses swim between the groups of cubs, snarling as they go to ward off any attackers.
The mother tries to carry a cub, but it’s too heavy so she returns on her own once more.


Suddenly a strange lioness arrives, looking at cubs. The females see her from across the bank and cross back.
There is a dust up between the mothers and the lone lioness, scattering the cubs.
One of the four cubs is upset and is trying to swim back to the two. The mothers lead him back to the others and settle down with the four cubs.
Scared and confused, the two cubs wait in the shade of a tree.


Growling and hissing both lionesses make another attempt to get their separated cubs to join them.
The lionesses stick close together giving the impression of a larger animal and offer each other support but there’s not much light left in the day.
The cubs are calling on both sides.


One female tries to pick up a cub but it’s too heavy. They’re exhausted. They head back to the other four as night comes.
The two cubs watch them go… They females swim across and take the four cubs a long way away.


In the morning the cubs are found shivering in the wet reeds. They had a miserable night it seems. There is no sign of the others.


There is a sharp female call and the cubs get frantic, calling loudly. The females return, alone.
The mothers appear, having silently slipped into the water. They appear anxious but ready to start the process again.
The two cubs go to the water’s edge to welcome them!


This time the lionesses greet the cubs and step back into the water. There is no suckling and no milk for the two cubs that spent the night alone and hungry.
At last! The petrified cubs aren’t going to be left alone again and scramble to follow their mothers into the water.
Cold and hungry they latch on, one digging it claws in for support.
The two females and two cubs swim across, the cubs hanging like monkeys to their mothers’ tails.

 


24 hours later the two incredibly strong and diligent lionesses and their four obedient cubs are reunited with the two shivering cubs.
This is a successful end to a major, dangerous saga in their lives and this experience will have taught them essential survival skills.

The six cubs and the lionesses are spotted the next day, all suckling and all eating a newly killed buffalo!
