Another good day…..




Club Quilt today and it was so nice to catch up with the girls and see all the lovely projects they have been working on.……I spent the day getting lots of blocks ready to stitch…..I have 5 blocks to stitch for Gardeners Journal so they are all traced and ready to go….. Tail Feathers this is one of the smaller blocks that I have completed….and I have prepped another 8 smaller blocks ready to stitch…

Today I took along another version of a “Caramel Date Walnut Slice”….is was to have macadamia nuts not dates  and walnuts but I had these in the cupboard so I substituted..

1 Vanilla cake mix, 1 cup of coconut, 125gms melted butter, mix together and press into a slice tin, cook for 15 minutes……in a saucepan mix 1 can condensed milk, 1 tablespoon golden syrup, 1 tablespoon butter, stir over heat until just thickened…..make up 1 cup of chopped walnuts and chopped dates, about half of each or what ever you have….when base has cooked, remove from oven, sprinkle evenly with the walnuts and dates pour over the caramel  mixture, return to oven for 20 mins, I think mine was a little over done so I would check after 15 mins…..

The original recipe asked for 1 cup of chopped macadamia nuts and this was to be stirred thru the caramel before pouring over the base…

hope you have all had a great day…

take care Peg..:>)
