Dear GhostConvey customer
The NCA is keeping us all very busy and we at Korbitec are doing our best to keep you informed. Please refer to NCA Newswhere we have posted a list of Frequently Asked Questions and other information relating the National Credit act as it unfolds.
We have had so many updates to GhostConvey as a result of the National Credit Act that it is likely that you could have missed some really great new features introduced with Version 9. The biggest change is our new Developments module, which now caters for Conventional as well as Sectional Title developments. Listed below is a summary of new features in version 9. For information on all changes/modifications please request a copy of the Version 9 User Notes from your GhostConvey "Supervisor".

I'm sure you will recognize some of the names and faces of some of the ladies. We all had a wonderful time and the lunch was amazing. We can't wait to go back and do it again !! :)

Recipe of the month - Healthy Crispy Chicken strips
(Kids love em!)
Tub of buttermilk
1 box of Ritz crackers/Bacon Kips (or whatever other type you fancy!)
Oil for frying
- Slice the chicken into thinish strips (you can beat the breasts first if you like)
- Put the sliced chicken into a freezer bag with the buttermilk and leave in the fridge to marinade (for up to 2 days if necessary).
- When you are ready to cook them, heat the oil in a large frying pan.
- Put the Ritz biscuits into a bag and seal the end, and then bash the biscuits with a rolling pin. Tip the biscuit crumbs into a wide shallow bowl.
- Shake off the excess buttermilk from the nuggets and dip them in the crumbs, coating well.
- Cook them in the hot oil - about 2 minutes or so a side until they are golden brown. Transfer to some kitchen towel on a plate to blot the excess oil.
Alternatively, cook them in a lightly oiled roasted tin in a 200C oven for about 20-25 minutes or until cooked through.
Makes 12-16 nuggets to feed 3-4 children
