AND JUST PLAIN FUN!!!
IT'S NOT OFTEN THAT A TRUCK COMES TO OUR PLACE!
We had a great weekend end full of productive activity. We gardened madly and achieved heaps. I transplanted the tomatoes that we grew from seed, planted grape cuttings gifted by a friend, took lavender cuttings, spread some compost, planted a mulberry tree and organised the clumps of young onions that had germinated into rows.
We also came up with a great new recipe. I have lots of puffed rice at the moment so I googled for recipes for a snack bar I could make. They all had ingredients that I don't have at the moment. Some called for honey (I'm out of honey) and others for marshmallows which is not something I would often have.
So this is what we came up with:-
Puffed Rice Bars
4 cups wholemeal puffed rice (addendum - so sorry, I originally wrote 3 cups but it should be 4)
125g melted butter
1/4 cup malt extract (you know, the thick liquid one)
100g white chocolate, melted
I put the malt in with the butter to soften it. Then I mixed all ingredients in a bowl and spread them in a lamington tin lined with baking paper. They were popped in the fridge while I headed back out to the garden. When I came in they were ready!
So easy and so yummy!
Hooray for great weekends!!
