We had friends over the past weekend; Linda on Friday night and Saturday morning, Alan went to lodge with me and stayed over Saturday night and then Rene' and Bronwyn came on Sunday and left on Monday morning, hell of a busy weekend but lots of good times.
Once you have browned the rashers on both sides you need to cook the rinds, balance them skin side down against a piece of wood and braai them like that until you have the rinds nice and crackly, take care not to burn them. Keep turning the potatoes as well.
Once the rinds are done all you have to do is make sure the rashers are cooked, then cut them into bite-sized pieces, sprinkle with some salt and a little mixed herbs and you have a delicious, crunchy appetiser for your guests to nibble on while you get the rest of the meal ready.
I then braaiied some lamb leg chops and the ubiquitous boerewors, I also prepared some sweet corn miellies in tinfoil in the coals and we had a lovely, rather typical South African weekend lunch.
As I was not sure what the weather would be like on Sunday I had decided to do a Potjie (Poy-key) for Rene' and Bronwyn's lunch, another favourite meal of mine and one which I have done hundreds of times before but they always turn out different, never boring or repetitive. I'll tell you about that one in my next post.

It was just about time to get k-s-u (kick stands up) but we could already smell the bacon and boerewors cooking, breakfast and the awards ceremony was next. What a great night it had been.

I had my new tire fitted this afternoon and the big red machine is all gassed up and ready to go, tonight we are going to do our packing because we have to meet in Velddrif at 0700, that's just over 30kms away so we will leave just before 0700 - it's going to be a bit fresh!

Now I know that Des has done some "kaalgat" riding before at rallies so I reckon that if you want to win this award you will have to take your wristwatch off! On the other hand this is Sutherland in winter, the coldest place in South Africa and if you (a guy) are going to ride kaalgat you want to look good. I have always said to Janet that if I get the urge to streak she mustn't try to stop me, she must just take me aside and help me to look good!
And can you imagine what that sounds like?! Bloody fantastic! A Ferrari engine in a motorbike, absolute madness, they may sell a few in Dubai or somewhere like that but I don't think we'll have too many of them on our breakfast runs! Anyway keep reading this blog friends and I enjoy your comments, let me know what you think - harryh are you still reading Bro? I sent an email and got no reply, we're worried is everything ok?
