juicy flapjacks!

Well, not juicy. nice and moist.
Cranks and Flahavans recipies both similar. I added "pink" tea. And raisins.

350g oats
200g butter
100g brown sugar
2tbsp golden syrup
1-2ish mugs tea (herbal or "real")
some raisins

1. mix all together in bowl. hot tea will melt the butter. leave to soak for at least 30 mins.
2. heat oven to 150C/300F/gas2
3. spread mix out on baking tray which has been covered with greaseproof paper. fold up edges and squeeze to make straight sides.
4. bake for 30+ mins. turn up heat at end and brush top with milk to get a golden brown top.
5. cut squares while still warm. leave to cool and firm up in tin.

Kate and I cooked spanish omlette for tea. potatoes cut in short and chunky chips. onion rings.
blanch/par boil those. then fry. add garlic and chilli. keep stirring. add some spinach chopped up small. keep stirring. open all windows to vent choking chilli fumes. add some chopped tomatoes. finally add eggs on top. don't stir. add slices of cheese and grill.

also pictured a cake from Ekram. she'a just had baby and baking us cake!
