Ah, the winter, what can one say about that…fluffy blankets and even fluffier 
scarves, warm cuddles on the couch in front of a toasty fire, hearty soups and 
Lemon meringue….
YES, I said Lemon Meringue……hehehehe….comfort food 
(high in “yummiestness” and high in sugar).

This recipe is quick, easy and pretty much fool proof.  So if you have never attempted 
to make Lemon Meringue, give it a go….
REALLY, WHAT’S THE WORST THAT CAN HAPPEN!!?



Ingredients:
1 packet Tennis biscuits
1 tin Condensed milk
2 eggs
125ml (½ cup) Lemon juice
150g Butter (You could use Margarine, but WHY?) 
¼ Cup (60ml) Castor sugar



Method:

1. Melt the Butter.
2. Crush the Tennis biscuits until finely crumbled
(I put them in a plastic bag and give them a 
good whack with the rolling pin, 
but you could use the food processor also) 
and add the melted butter
3. Press into pie dish (using your fingers) and place in the fridge.
4. Pour whole tin of condensed milk into a mixing bowl.
5. Separate the eggs and add the yolks to 
the condensed milk and stir till well blended.
6. Add lemon juice and stir until it thickens.
7. Pour over the biscuit crust.
8. Combine the egg whites and castor sugar 
and beat until stiff (+/-15 minutes).
9. Pour it over the lemon curd.
10. Bake at 140°C for 30 – 40 minutes 
or until meringue is lightly browned.






Hints and Tips



1. The reason you need to stir the ingredients for the curd, is simply 
because mixing it with an electric mixer 
will put too much air into it.  Not what we want for curd.  

2. Everybody does their meringue mixing differently.  
Personally, I mix the meringue until 
before peaking, only then add sugar and mix stiff.  

3. For lovely white meringue, you can add just a splash (2 ml) of lemon juice.


4. If you like a high meringue on your 
Lemon Meringue, then add as many egg whites as you 
want with 30ml Castor Sugar added for each egg white.  
Personally, I suffer with a small case 
of CDO (OCD Alphabetically) and like the layers to be equal in size… ;-)

THE ROAR

Dis lanklaas wat 'n fliek my so opgewonde gehad het dat ek my man wil afvlieg om die uitsending in George te gaan kyk. Die fliek waarvan ek praat is THE ROAR, 'n Frans Cronjé film, wat ek onlangs in Pretoria met die vertoning daar gaan kyk het vir resensie doeleindes. Die film stem so wonderlik ooreen met Nasie se leuse en hartklop...
Die hele fliek gaan daaroor om uit te vind wat jou lewensdoel is, dit raak te sien en om dit te bereik. Spreker, Gustav Gous was ook daar gewees. Hy praat gereeld oor lewensdoel en sy insprake was vir my baie spesiaal gewees. Hy het gesê mense dink hulle het net een doel, maar ons het eintlik ten minste 9 doele wat God vir ons elkeen uniek gemaak/gegee het. Dit was vir my 'n baie lekker ervaring en veral om te sien hoe opgewonde Frans Cronjé is oor hierdie film!
The Roar vorm deel van 3 verskillende films onder die Purpose Campaign. 6 Below wys reeds by lokette, The Roar en Victor is die ander twee en word die 2de Maart en die 13de April bekend…

The Roar and I

As I sat down in front of my computer to write what is burning in my heart, with that loathsome cape of self-doubt hanging around my shoulders – what makes me think that I’m worthy of sharing my views with the world? – a randomly generated Windows Spotlight Image greets me. Yes, as you can see a mighty lion relaxing in the sun, face into the wind. Powerful and content. I couldn’t help but chuckle and you will soon see why.

The recently released film, The Roar, tells a powerful tale of Louise (Almarie du Preez), a young woman who has to make some important decisions about her future. Not only her future, her destiny. The viewers follow her journey of discovery in the setting of the bushveld family farm and lodge ran by her father, Ranger (Frans Cronjé), who struggles with finding his footing in life after the passing of his wife. Not to forget her fiancé, André (Heinz Winkler), who is not only a pillar of strength to Louise, but her comrade in the day-to-day running of the business as …

Die klippie in my skoen - geskryf deur iskra

Wat 'n knaende verraad! Daardie klippie in die skoen. Daardie ding wat krap en pla en mens soms verleë laat. Dis 'n pes as jy dalk jaag van hier na daar, soveel dinge wat aan jou trek; jou aandag vat; daar is nie tyd nie! Vir jou om net te kan sit, skoen uittrek en die verdomde ding uitgooi! Pfffeeeu...! Wat 'n verligting as hy eers weg is!

So klein dingetjie met soveel praat in sy kneuse...daardie klippie in die skoen.
(Talk about rubbing me up the wrong way!)

Ons het almal maar ons klippies. Klein goedjies wat haak en pla. Daagliks knaag dit aan ons..maal dit rond in ons koppe, laatnag, wannneer ons eintlik moet slaap...

Ons veiligheid.
Ons kinders se toekoms, gesondheid. Hoe gaan jy hierdie maand daardie rekening betaal?
Jou huwelik of 'n vriendskap is dalk op 'n snaakse plek of selfs naby skipbreek?

Dalk ons eie gesondheid wat 'n lelike rapport gekry het... 'n finale een...wat jou asem weggeruk het...wat jou, die mense om jou, dae en minute met 'n ander o…
