Healthy Twix Bars in minutes
We're totally addicted to the Happy Pear recipe for "Twix" bars thanks to Bumbles of Rice, but totally fed up with the amount of time it takes to make them! So one frustrated afternoon I used this method instead:
1. Melt the chocolate in the microwave.
2. Shove ALL the other ingredients in the food processor (plus a handful of rolled oats requested by number one daughter) and mix thoroughly.
3. Spread out onto a flat piece of baking/greaseproof paper.
4. Spread chocolate on top.
5. Freeze until set.
6. Cut up into shapes that won't resemble Twix bars at all. But I promise you, your taste buds won't know the difference...
If you haven't tried them, you really should. Perhaps over the Easter holidays?
Things are looking up for him this week. It seems that everyone involved in his life is finally on the same page as me: I will say no more on here, but it really is good news. And I also may be on the way to naming another little problem that has been bugging him for the past few years. Thanks so much to the helpful parents who pointed the way..
A proper night out
Okay so it was only a couple of house, but I paced myself all day and managed more than the usual ten minute rush to get ready, which was great. It also got me thinking about my life, a dangerous pastime I know! You see I hang on to nights out like these as proof that my young self is still there, even now, ready to be dug out and dusted down when the time is right. But sometime soon I need to reinvent myself, just as my mother did around this age. Eventually the make up will not be able to cover the lines or disguise the jowls. I will need to find a new way to look and conduct myself, one more appropriate to my age. Well, don't I?
