busy cooking day. i did a batch of:
all the veggies soup
granola bars

granola bars- experimental version 3,with pear sauce
  • 2 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup of butter- melted
  • 1/4 cup of golden syrup
  • 1/4 cup of chopped nuts
  • 1/4 cup of raisins
  • 1/4 cup of dried apricots chopped up
  • 1/3 cup pear sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
in a sauce pot over low heat i melted the butter and stirred in the golden syrup and pear sauce
in a large bowl i mixed together the other ingredients. i just used a fork to stir everything around. i then added the pear and melted butter mixture to the large bowl. i mixed everything together- still with a fork. i dumped it out into a 9x13inch tray which i had lined with baking paper. with a spatula i firmly pressed the mix out until it was very thinly spread across the tray, it didn't quite cover the whole area but pretty close. i put the thing in the oven at 325 degrees for about 20min. i wasn't really paying attention to how long it cooked. i did the dishes. when the top was starting to get brown i turned the oven off. i took the tray out and cut the bars. i then let the bars completely cool in the tray. once again- very tasty results. granola bars are proving a huge hit around here.
i also made a batch of meat sauce based lasagna for the husband's dinner with garlic bread on the side of course
