Pasta perfection TEXT: NOMSA MOTALE PHOTOGRAPHY: SHUTTERSTOCK

W

e all look forward to the festive season, and many of us will be looking forward to the eats rather than the presents. All too soon, January comes around the corner and the scale reminds us that we might have over-indulged over the holidays. Now, we’re not saying you should watch everything you eat, but if you’re exercising caution, this pasta recipe is delicious, yet lean.

4

METHOD 1. Cook the pasta according to the package instructions, adding the broccoli during the last minute of cooking. Drain and return the pasta and broccoli to the pot. 2. Meanwhile, heat one tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the turkey, garlic, fennel seed and red pepper, and cook, breaking up the meat with a spoon, until browned. Cooking time should be three to five minutes. Once off the heat, season with half a teaspoon of salt. 3. Toss the turkey mixture with the pasta and broccoli and the remaining two tablespoons of oil. Serve with parmesan shavings.

Turkey and broccoli WHAT YOU’LL NEED • Your choice of pasta (penne recommended) • 2 cups broccoli florets • 3 tablespoons olive oil • 450g shredded turkey • 2 chopped cloves of garlic • 1 teaspoon fennel seed • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper • Salt • Parmesan cheese, for garnishing

FUN FACTS

Did you know? 10 Christmas facts that might surprise you TEXT: NOMSA MOTALE PHOTOGRAPHY: SHUTTERSTOCK

T

he festive season can be an exciting and stressful time. Shopping malls are everyone’s worst nightmare over December, as everyone scrambles to find last-minute gifts. One moment you are concentrating on buying presents, and then the next moment you have to think about the groceries you have to purchase for Christmas lunch. Everything seems to happen at the same time, but when everything works together and you finally get some time to sit back and enjoy the good food and moments of laughter with your family and friends, it becomes worth it. Most people know what Christmas stands for and what it symbolises and represents, but you may be surprised that you don’t know everything there is to know about this festive holiday. Here are some interesting facts for you to check out. Each year there are approximately 20,000 ‘rent-aSantas’ across the United States. Rent-a-Santas usually undergo seasonal training on how to maintain a jolly attitude.

6

Santa Claus is based on a real person, St Nikolaos of Myra, also known as Nikolaos the Wonderworker, Bishop Saint Nicholas of Smyrna, and Nikolaos of Bari, who lived during the fourth century.


One of the reasons we leave milk and cookies for Santa is because Dutch children would traditionally leave food and drinks for St Nicholas on his feast day. Real Christmas trees usually grow for about 15 years before they are sold. Silent Night is the most recorded Christmas song in history, with over 733 different versions copyrighted since 1978. Jingle Bells was originally written for Thanksgiving, not Christmas. According to Mental Floss

magazine, composer James Lord Pierpont wrote the song in the 1850s to play for his Boston Sunday school class during Thanksgiving as a way to commemorate the famed Medford sleigh races. Candy canes used to be all white; they weren’t always red and white. Nobody has a clue who gave the candy canes stripes, but there is a theory that the ‘J’ shape was once meant to stand for Jesus and the three stripes represent the Holy Trinity. Red is meant to represent the blood of Christ. Christmas pudding was originally a soup made with raisins and wine.

The best-selling Christmas song ever is White Christmas by Bing Crosby. It has sold more than 50 million copies around the world. The tradition of Christmas carolling began as an old English custom. It was originally called wassailing and was a toast to long life.

Christmas lunch table, you should probably share some of these interesting facts with your family and friends – it wouldn’t hurt to look like the Christmas genius.

These facts are a little reminder that it’s always great to learn something new. Who ever thought that Christmas would have so many interesting facts? Next time you are about to have a conversation at the

FESTIVE SEASON

DIY gifts

TEXT: NOMSA MOTALE PHOTOGRAPHY: SHUTTERSTOCK

Creative ideas for Christmas

I

t’s the season to be jolly and show as much love as possible. Some are ready for the holidays, while others are looking forward to Christmas lunch and the delight of presents under the tree. Possibly the most stressful part about the festive season is thinking of what to get your nearest and dearest, especially when you have no clue what to buy. In today’s economy, it’s hard to afford extravagant presents. A sentimental gift warms anyone’s heart, and what better way to give a thoughtful gift than to create it yourself? With so many DIY gift ideas these days, it’s really simple to make your own present and give it to your loved one. We’ve put together a few ideas that are easy to do, and what’s more – you’ll have fun making them! MANICURE IN A JAR This is a great gift for someone who loves their manis and pedis. A manicure in a jar consists of a large jar that you can fill up with different nail sets, personally suited to the individual’s style and taste.

What you’ll need: • Jar • Nail file • Nail buffer • Cuticle stick • Nail brush • Nail art stickers • Dotter tool • Hand and nail cream • Ribbon

What to do: Take your jar and fill it up with all these different nail set tools, and once you have filled it up, close the lid and tie a cute ribbon around it. Voila! POPSICLE-STICK FRAMES This is such a fun way to get your hands sticky! Popsiclestick frames are a creative way of making a gift. You can experiment with different types of pictures and washi tape (coloured tape). What you’ll need: • Washi tape • Craft glue • Popsicle sticks • Photograph • Frame pin

20

What to do: Take your washi tape and cut it into strips, then apply your craft glue to each strip. Stick the strips onto your different popsicle sticks. Once you have done that you can create any shape frame with the popsicle sticks. Then place your photograph onto the frame and secure it with a frame pin.


A sentimental gift warms anyone’s heart, and what better way to give a thoughtful gift than to create it yourself? What you’ll need: • ½ cup ‘melt-and-pour’ soap base • ¼ cup coconut oil • 1 cup sugar • Mica colourant • Silicone moulds • 15-20 drops of an essential oil of your choosing

SURPRISE SLIPPERS This is an amazing and thoughtful gift for someone who enjoys being pampered. It is easy to make and uncomplicated, making it a super DIY gift idea! What you’ll need: • Foot cream • Hand wash • Nail polish • Face mask • Ankle bracelet • Chocolate • Pair of slippers • Ribbon

What to do: Take all the different items and stuff them into the pair of slippers. Tie the ribbon around the slippers, wrap in Christmas paper and you’re all done! HOME-MADE SUGAR SCRUB BARS This is a personal gift that anyone would appreciate, because it smells good and has all the benefits of being a body scrub. Although this is slightly harder to put together, you can make several trays in one go so that you have multiple scrubs to give as presents.

What to do: Melt the soap base in a microwaveable glass cup. The soap will melt quicker if you shred it or cut it up into blocks. Heat the soap in 15-second intervals and keep an eye on it. Mix in the coconut oil until combined and add the essential oil. Add the sugar and stir well. Mix in the mica colourant until well combined – the

mixture should be pourable. If it hardens up, pop it back in the microwave for 10-second intervals until it thins out. Pour the mixture into your moulds and let it sit in a cool spot until it’s hardened and dried. There you have it – four simple DIY Christmas gifts to which you can add your own personal touch of creativity to personalise them. Remember not to limit yourself when you create the gifts; if you think of something else to add, go for it! Experiment with different concepts and lay out your artistic skills, and remember to have fun while you are busy making the gifts.

Kiwi smoothie to keep you cool

S

outh African seasons have a reputation for sneaking up on us. In the blink of an eye, our winters turn into blazing hot summers. This time of the year is particularly hot, and we can think of nothing better to help you cool down than a delicious kiwi smoothie. Perfect to make in advance and drink after riding!

22

METHOD 1. Blend the kiwi, pineapple, grapes, mango and water in a blender until smooth. 2. Add the spinach and blend again until the spinach is completely integrated. 3. Add the ice cubes and blend until the ice is completely integrated.

Going green WHAT YOU’LL NEED • 1 kiwi, peeled and sliced • ½ cup pineapple chunks • ½ cup green grapes • ¼ mango – peeled, seeded and diced • ¼ cup water • ½ cup spinach • 2 cups ice cubes, or as needed

DID YOU KNOW? Kiwis are considered to be nutritional all-stars. Rutgers University researchers found that kiwis have the best nutrient density out of 21 commonly consumed fruits.

CHRISTMAS TIME

Horsey presents

Overreach boots always get ruined and dirty during work. They make for a great small gift because it’s always handy to have spares!

I

t’s that time of the year again – our friends and families are asking what would horse riders want for Christmas? Horsey gifts of course! Equestrians are always mad about presents that are practical for themselves or their horses. Whether it’s a new pair of riding boots or a pair of overreach boots – as long as it’s horsey, we’ll find a use for it! This month we take a look at some equestrian presents to help you out if you’re writing up your Christmas wish list or brainstorming a present for your BFF.

24

GET PERSONAL Who doesn’t love a personalised gift? There are plenty of places nowadays that can customise horsey products for you. A custom-made name board is always a safe option and sure to hang proudly next to any horse’s stable. We’ve all seen the ‘Keep

calm and carry on’ posters, so why not custom-make one with your friend’s horse’s name? You could have it printed and framed or even printed on canvas to make it extra special! (Visit keepcalm-o-matic.co.uk to make your own!) Lots of printing companies, such as Q-Photo, make

custom calendars. Why not send them 12 high-quality photographs of your horse or your friend’s horse and get them to make one for you? You can also get things like mugs, pillowcases, T-shirts and loads more printed! Personalised numnahs are a popular choice. Red Dapple Designs allows you to choose your numnah size, shape, colour and embroidery! They also custom-make day sheets, ear veils, trucking boots, saddle covers, boots, bandages, fly masks, helmet bags – you name it! Visit reddapple.co.za to custommake your own gear! Macaroon is an awesome company that custom-makes stationery, such as stickers, labels and notepads, as well as cellphone covers. You can get a phone cover made with a picture of your horse or your horse’s name! They

offer a variety of designs and funky colours as well! Visit macaroon.co.za to check out their stuff! SOMETHING PRACTICAL While it’s always great to receive a personalised gift, some of us might appreciate a present that can be put to good use. Think of things that break often or need to be replaced on a regular basis. Things like overreach boots, fly masks and halters always seem to get worn out after a short period of time, so it’s great to keep extra stock of these things so that you can replace them when necessary. Other items such as fly spray, treats, plaiting elastics and sponges need to be replaced regularly because they run out so quickly! Most riders would appreciate extras so they don’t have to run to the shops every few

colourful browband is a subtle yet eye-catching feature for any horse’s bridle! Lots of tack stores also stock halters with diamante or glitter on the sides. If you’re going for something more sophisticated, you could look for a leather halter with a nameplate that you can have engraved. For a rider, you could look for a pretty show shirt or a sparkly belt.

Nu-Angle stirrup irons are a colourful addition to your tack

Or try colourful or patterned gumboots to use when walking around the yard, especially during the rainy season! ON THE EXPENSIVE SIDE As with all gifts, there are inexpensive options that can make for great presents, and there are the more costly items that are sure to make any equestrian squeal with delight. If you’re looking to add some creativity to your tack, coloured stirrup irons are a colourful touch! Nu Angle stirrups are very popular, but if you’re on a budget, some tack shops stock generic brands that look similar but cost less. A custom painting of your

horse is always a special and very memorable gift. It’s costly but it will last a lifetime. You could also arrange a photoshoot so that you can keep special photographs of you and your horse forever! THE GIFT OF KNOWLEDGE If you’re the type of rider who enjoys attending clinics or workshops, why not ask for one for Christmas? If you’re based in Gauteng, you could take seat lessons with the Lipizzaners. You can also ask for a session with a top instructor in your area. One thing is guaranteed when shopping for the equestrian: as long as it’s a present to do with horses, it can’t go wrong!

Water-saving tips during the drought

H

ow many of us are truly aware of the severity of our country’s drought? Our water levels are seriously stressed and it’s important that we are aware of the necessary steps that need to be taken to conserve water. A week of rain, although welcome, is not sufficient to pull us out of our desperate condition. We’ve put together some tips to keep top of mind when doing your part to reduce your water footprint.

Use leftover bath water to wash your car.

26

Sweep your paving or driveway instead of hosing it down.

Don’t wait for the shower to heat up – be brave!

When waiting for water to heat up, use the cooler stream to fill ice trays, water bottles or your pet’s bowl.

Skip watering your lawn – it might not be pretty, but it’s worth it.

Rather use disposable paper plates and cups when throwing a party.

Don’t use the dishwasher or ne washing machi a ve ha u unless yo . ad lo full

Play a song while you’re in the shower and make sure you’re out before it ends.

Collect water from gutters to use for watering plants.

Brush your teeth before shaving in the morning so that you don’t waste water while waiting for it to heat up.

BREED PROFILE

TEXT: KRISZTI BOTTYAN PHOTOGRAPHY: SHUTTERSTOCK

The Andalusian A beautiful and historic breed

28


T

he Andalusian is also commonly known as the Pure Spanish Horse. This breed originally stems from the Iberian Peninsula. The Andalusian is an ancient horse breed that has existed for thousands of years. They were first recognised as a breed in the 15th century. The horses were admired by royalty and were also often gifted in order to aid Spanish diplomacy.

FACT FILE Origin: Spain Average height: 15-16hh Colour: Mainly grey but can be found in many different colours Disciplines: Dressage and showjumping

HISTORY Through the hands of bull owners, the Andalusian earned his reputation as a stockworking animal. In the valley of the Guadalquivir River, Spanish cowboys used the horse to handle bulls. The best of the Andalusians were even used in the bull ring. The blood of the Andalusian has had a very strong influence

on almost every horse breed in the ancient world. Breeds with Andalusian ancestry include many of the Warmbloods in Europe as well as western hemisphere breeds such as the Azteca. Traditional fables state that the horse was created by Zephyr, the gentle west wind. The Andalusian has also been known as the mythical creature Pegasus. WHERE IS THE BREED NOW? In 1822, breeders began to add Norman blood into Spanish bloodlines as well as infusions of Arabian blood. During this century, herd numbers were dramatically reduced by war, disease and crossbreeding. Unfortunately, this trend continued into the 20th century. Exports of these horses from Spain were restricted in the 1960s, yet they still managed to cross the globe. By 2010, there

were over 185,000 registered Andalusians worldwide. PHYSIQUE Throughout history, the Andalusian has been known for his athletic ability and prowess as a war horse.
