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.

Is anyone out there in blogville interested in doing a goodies swap with me?

Spring has come and I have cleaned out my stash piles and would love to share some of it with someone, and get a little new inspiration at the same time!

I'm thinking I'll fill an A4 envelope with goodies...

...fabric scraps, ribbon, lace, paper, fibre......

you fill one too and we get exciting presents in the mail..ya!

If your keen leave a comment xoxoxo

Thursday was a beautiful day here, so I seized the moment and took the girls off for an adventure to the Herb Farm which is a few K's out of Feilding. We had a great time doing our Elf quiz's and munching on homemade marshmallows and tasty goodies. We were all elfy inspired when we got home so we hauled out the fibre and made some woolly dolls with fleece and pip cleaners...pop's one had a very vigorous felting experience and is now a caterpillar!
