Kitchen busy

The weather today is total crap, I've lit the coal range for the first time in ages,
time to get some sewing jobs ticked off the list I think.However......
I discovered hiding in the hedgerows on Sunday...some Elderflower in bloom...
This gave me a little hope for hot summer days sipping elderflower cordial,
So I subtly pushed Ged out of the car with a bag....
and well the rest you can see for yourself xox

The other goodies getting create din the kitchen this week were a batch of home made muesli bars.
I was lying in bed when I realised that the daily lunches consumed 5 bars a day! seeing as you usually only get 6 in box, I thought....that's an average of $3 (approx) per week day....$15 a week. Enough of this frivolous spending, which we really don''t have anyway. Out came the cook book and......

Oatie slice:
1/2 C Sunflower seeds
3 C rolled oats (the porridge kind)
1 C sesame seeds
1 C wheat germ (I forgot the wheatgerm and sesame seeds and it still turned out fine)
2 1/2 C Sultanas (or your choice of dried fruit)
1 1/2 C wholemeal flour
1 1/2 tsp Baking powder
1 1/2 C Coconut
1-1/2 C Raw sugar
11 oz Butter
6 Tbsp Honey ( I can't eat honey so I made a blend of 2 Tbsp malt 4 Tbsp golden syrup)
Melt butter and honey mix pour over dry ingredients, press into 2x sponge roll tins and bake until golden...15-20min. Cut into bars when warm. xox Makes 32 bars. This recipe can easily be halved.

Brilliant lady! I need to do the same...they cost a bomb those pre-packaged bars. Hey, did you swap some stuff? Also, you home this weekend? I still haven't checked out your new digs. I'll give ya a ring tonite.
