school holiday picnicing

One of the things I love most about the school holidays is that not rushing out of the house, hanging out, lets have a picnic kinda feeling. 



It doesn't even need to be out of town. An urban park will do me fine. Look at these fantastic old trees!



An afternoon picnic MUST be accompanied by snacks. 

Snacks are very important. 

We like these:

Kamut crunch


and messed-with Anzacs


These biscuits are essentially this recipe, but with treacle instead of golden syrup (ran out) and oatbran instead of oats (really should go grocery shopping, shouldn't I.) 

The kamut crunch is my own evil invention. Such a smackerel. 

Kamut is a relative of durum wheat. I buy an organic one, so I can kid myself this is a healthy snack. 

Er, you decide.



90g butter

1/3 cup white sugar

1 tbsp honey

4 cups kamut

Set oven to 150°C.

Melt the butter, sugar and the honey together on the stove until a bit frothy. Add the kamut and stir up well. Dump out into a greased and lined slice tin, don't pack down. 

Cook in the oven for about 10 mins. When you pull it out, break it up with a fork. 

When it cools it'll be more stuck together, break up, or sneak a whole nice chunky bit if no one's looking and reminding you you're s'posed to be eating superfoods and all things wholesome and un-sugary. Bugger that. This stuff is delicious. 

And life's too short to have a picnic with just fruit and raw almonds.


P.S. I will post the recipes for the superfoods post yesterday but I just need to try them again first! (And write down the ingredients I use!)

It was one thing to chuck up a draft recipe when I first started this blog and a couple of poeple might make it, now there's more than three of you following along, I want to not completely fudge it!
