Owen made these at school not so long ago and they were very yummy. He did them all himself including cutting them up.....
2 tblspn Golden syrup
200g Porridge Oats
teaspoon mixed spice or cinammon
2 tblspn flour (any)
2 - 5 tblspn of water or milk
75g of dried fruit, nuts etc
Melt margerine, sugar and syrup togther. Mix oats, fruit and spices together, then add the melted mix, then the flour. Then gradually add milk or water - it needs to be stiffish, so you may not need all of the liquid.
Put in a baking tin - around 8inch square and cook for 15mins on 180c
I have been busy digging up the potatoes for dinner - this was a pic of the first plant - we have had lots more since. I also have a good crop of lettuces - in fact quite a glut at the moment! The loganberries are starting to fruit - although probably not lots and lots - but enough for me to have some most days. tomatoes have some little toms on them - so if the sun shines soon maybe I will be picking some.
THe utility has been finished at last, Paul has been busy painting in there today, which was nice, as I tend to do the painting. So it should all be done soon, need to sort the wall tiles next.
Well I presume we will have some summer again - very soon - so thought I would make a summer card!
Tomorrow it is the Ampthill Festival, there is a parade and then a 'fete' type of thing in the park afterwards. I have offered to 'man' the scout tea tent for a couple of hours - but the forecast is really not looking good. The theme is Pirates in the Caribbean, not sure how that will pan out as a theme - or whether everyone will be dressed as pirates! Normally it is a wider theme, so lots of different interpretations, but I am sure it will be good fun.
I have launched a new Rubber stamped challenge on the forum - Okey-Dokey (Jackie) has prepared this one - stamping on fabric, and it is looking great - so why not join in. Sue has a new template challenge too - with a bit of a twist.
Something exciting is just about to happen on the 'bead' front, and there are scrapbook challenges to get stuck into. Monthly swaps for cards, die cuts and ATCs are taking place - so loads of different things to get stuck into! See you on the forum
