Fresh bread is always a crowd-pleaser! Even more so when it’s a freshly homemade loaf. One could swear that I am obsessed with Nutriday 2 ingredient dough.

I completely forgot that I am supposed to be taking myself and all of you avid valued readers though a journey of discovery with Danone Inkomazi (sour milk). I promise to go back to that. I blame the fact that school is opening this week, third term! My mind is a little all over the place as we get the boys ready to take the last term by the horns. This amazingly delicious loaf goes well with so many dishes. I made a quick Rosemary Loaf. Inspired by the Focaccia we made so much of last year.

I have had a bottle of rosemary in the kitchen which I have not given much attention to. It caught the corner of my eye as it does every time I am near the spice rack. This time I opened it and got a whiff of rosemary, and my thoughts immediately gravitated to; fresh! I wanted to describe the scent in a little more detail but I can’t quite find the words. So, I did a bit of research and came across some interesting notes. The aroma of rosemary has been linked to improving one’s mood, clearing the mind, relieving stress and lowering cortisol levels (including those with chronic anxiety or stress hormone imbalances). Rosemary is known to rapidly reduce cortisol levels by simply just smelling it - alleviating stress in the body. Wow, trust and believe I’ll be reaching for the rosemary a lot more now that I know what I know. This loaf is made with two-ingredient dough and no yeast! No yeast is my favourite thing about this dough because I can avoid that over fermented taste I struggle to get away from when using yeast. Another upside is that we can bake in real-time (gone hoo), with no need to cover the dough and put it in a dark place until it is double in size. Serve your rosemary loaf with your favourite soup, pasta or use it to make sandwiches. On this particular evening, it was served with tomato soup and some canned fish, eating fancy on a budget.

CoA brings sanity to DIS/DCEC long-standing feud

This decision follows the raiding of the office of the former Director General of the DCEC, Tymon Katlholo early 2022 and his staff officer by the DIS operatives who reportedly took files that they had targeted.After all back and forth arguments, the CoA has set the record straight giving an invaluable lesson to the DIS that it was no super security organ and it does not have any powers to cogently supervise other security organs including the...
