Update on the To do for this week!!

So things accomplished this week!

One - Made my oatmeal squares/snack bars. Berry, very Yummy.

My inspiration came from the Food Network show by Giada.
So credit goes to her idea.
My version  has a lot of differences.

I used rolled oats(made of barley, rye,etc) and instant oatmeal mix, a nuts medley of pistachios, cashews and almonds. Half the butter and a bit of Virgin O Oil... Plus Honey for the sweetness along with almond extract and some dried fruits medley.
Have to say its just as good as the store bought version and healthier too.

Two - Finished one of the Saartje booties for R. The second one is half way done
Three frogged my sox as i didnt like it
Four -Made Buttermilk bread.
Five - made sugar cookies at home for the kids.
Six - made baked veggie chips with beetroot, squash, plantain,potatoes for lunch.
