On this day in 1845 Hōne Heke chopped down the British flagstaff at Kororāreka (Russell) for the third and final time. Heke felt that British colonisation was having negative effects on his people and he wanted the te reo Māori version of the Treaty of Waitangi to be honoured. Ngāpuhi warriors led by Heke and his uncle Te Ruki Kawiti quickly overran the British military positions and arrangements were made to evacuate the town of all European civilians. The British ships sailed for Auckland the following day, leaving the town in control of Ngāpuhi. Illustration by Hugo Mathias Art #OnthisdayinNZhistory
A sink full of glorious garden pickings this morning from my Wanaka garden. So wonderful to be home again at this time of year. That said, it's freezing with low snow on the hills last night. At least the peonies don't mind!
MAMMA MIA! What an incredible experience. Now it's ciao to Italia, sunshine and gelato - Hello wintry weather, lamb shanks, pea & ham soup, my lovely Mike and Sprite. Trafalgar trips rule, I've made some wonderful new mates. I'll post more photos soon xx
Auckland Rugby is deeply saddened to learn that former player, Kurtis Haiu, has lost his battle with cancer.
From the Auckland Marist Rugby Club, Haiu played 76 games for Auckland, and 53 for The Blues. He was a regular selection in both sides until taking an indefinite break from the game after his cancer diagnosis in 2011.
“Kurtis had a proud record of representing both Auckland and the Blues over many years. He was a committed rugby man and was on the sidelines at Sacred Heart just last weekend watching the 1st XV pre-season,” said Auckland Rugby CEO Andy Dalton.
On behalf of the Auckland Rugby community, we extend our sympathies to the Haiu family and friends for the loss of such a well-loved and respected young man.
Here’s another delicious and creative recipe to get leafy greens into your diet. These Rosti’s are a great breaky, lunch or dinner option.
Give them a go and let us know what you think ;)
INGREDIENTS (serves 2)
2 medium orange kumara, peeled and grated
1 tsp sea salt
1-2 large kale leaves, stems removed and leaves finely chopped (you can also use spinach or silverbeet if preferred)
½ red onion, finely diced
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 Tbsp butter, melted
1 Tbsp parsley, chopped
2 Tbsp coconut oil
4 large eggs
2 cups wilted greens, sliced
Preheat oven to 120 degrees. Place kumara and salt in a bowl and mix well. Set aside for 10 minutes. Pick up handfuls of kumara and squeeze as hard as you can to remove all the excess liquid, then transfer to a clean bowl and add in the kale, onion, beaten egg, butter, parsley, salt and pepper to taste.
Heat 2 Tbsp of coconut oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add little handfuls of the kumara mix into the pan, flatten and cook until golden before flipping over and cooking to your liking.
Once rosti’s are cooked, remove from pan and place in the oven to keep warm.
Add a splash of water to the pan and wilt your greens.
To serve, place a kumara rosti on each plate and top with poached eggs and the side of wilted greens. Season with a sprinkle of natural sea salt and black pepper.
Note: If you are in a hurry and have left over cooked kumara/pumpkin mash or pieces, you can fry this as your source of clean carbohydrates for breakfast.
