WOYWW 177....

Hello!

Here we are again, another round of WOYWW  courtesy of Mrs JD, and oh my the weeks are flying fast....

Short and sweet for me this week (literally, if you look at the end of this post!).

Here's my desk:


You can see the remnants of post-crop-challenge makings, including the ludicrously pink bag (think that was more the flash than the actual colour of the bag!) we got with goodies in....

As you've seen on other blogs of late, at the Big Crop 10 days ago, we were given a challenge card kit, with the mission of creating something (didn't have to be a card!) with the bits and pieces we were given.  For some reason, unusually for me, I felt the need to go BIG.  Oh, OK, not so much BIG as BIGGER than I normally make....

So here's what I made....


Mr B's reaction was "is it staying here?".  When I said yes, he replied "Oh good..."  I think that means he likes it!


I was asked by Karen T for the flapjack recipe last week, so here it is.  Another really difficult recipe, as you can see.  I do well at the "mix it all together and bung it in a tin" kind of recipes which don't require copious amounts of faffing.

Flapjacks

350-400g rolled oats
Add a quantity (to taste) of seeds/nuts/chocolate
Add 150g plain flour (sieved)
Mix well.
Melt 200g unsalted butter in a pan TOGETHER with half a small tin of golden syrup and 2 tablespoons of brown sugar.  Add honey or maple syrup if you like - don't let the syrup burn!
Pour thoroughly melted ingredients into bowl contain the oats mixture.
Mix thoroughly - should be stodgy/sticky
Spread onto a baking tray - at least 1 1/2 inches deep - compress flat.
Bake on the middle shelf for 20-25 mins @ 180 deg. C
When golden all over, turn out, and cut into squares once half cooled.
Dip in chocolate/decorate if required!

Hello Morti, lovely desk as usual.
I have a photo of my boots for you (as requested...not some random gesture!), they are from 'Chuckles' in Exeter. They handmake them to order and fit around your feet...that way when part of them wear out you just replace the part rather than the whole boot!

Couldnt see an email address to send you the photo to?
