Horseradish Cream

I bought a bottle of prepared horseradish that claimed it would be hot. But that claim was misleading, as the horseradish is so mild it is not even worth eating. As I don’t like to waste, I made this horseradish cream to add flavour to both the contents of the bland bottle, as well as my meat.

There are many things wrong in South Africa. Between corruption and ineptitude, lots of things just do not work as they should. Our electricity supply is expensive, and prone to breaking down. The National Airline has run at a loss for so long that it is not even worth lifting off the ground. And many other parastatals are huge drains on our economy. But the one thing that has worked extremely well is how our vaccine rollout has been handled. I stand very much in the minority of my friends when it comes to having had the vaccine. But to me it was a no-brainer as I am choosing life. And I have protected my health as well as that of those around me. A month ago I was due for my booster shot so I went to my local pharmacy where I was attended straight away.

Today’s inspirational recipe from Lavender and Lime ♥ Horseradish Cream ♥ #LavenderAndLime Share on X

My details where checked on a Tablet and it was confirmed that I was not ill, pregnant (🤣) or had been vaccinated for flu within the past two weeks. I was then seen by the sister who jabbed my arm before filling in my vaccine card. She pressed a few buttons on the Tablet and asked me to wait for 10 minutes so as to ensure I had no immediate reaction to the vaccine that required medical attention. No sooner had I sat down than the SMS came through to say I had received my vaccine. And straight away my vaccine certificate had been updated. I just really wish that whoever is running this sector of our public health can be moved to run Eskom. With this sort of efficiency we should have all our electricity issues dealt with in no time at all. Have you had your booster shot?

  1. there’s always the danger that if the electricity problems get solved, then the public health sector might become more inefficient 🙂

    the government doesn’t want you getting spoiled…

  2. Interesting. I really struggle to find mild to my liking horseradish because whatever is claimed “mild” usually turns pretty hot. Anyway, this is a great idea to utilize some horseradish!

  3. I got my booster in December. Two of my kids, who were home for Christmas (one was also boosted) got Covid right after the holidays so I was happy I had the booster. Love horseradish BTW–good save!
