Just a few photos from Tuesday's fantastic meal, followed by a fantastic movie, followed by a fantastic....
bottle of wine...just kidding...about the wine...we had it with dinner!
Susanna - this is for YOU! (and anyone else who happens to wander by and wants to try my adapted recipe:
1/3 cup olive oil 3/4 cup of milk (I have used skim and/or vanilla soy milk
1/2 cup brown sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup whole wheat flour 1 cup Quaker oats (not the quick kind!)
1/2 tsp baking powder 3/4 cup raisins (I actually use 1/2 cup raisins and then add whatever else I might have on hand such as chopped walnuts or pecans, sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, dark chocolate chips - about 1/4 cup of each)
1/2 tsp of salt.
Heat oven to 350. Grease a 8x8 cake pan. Mix oil and sugar together. Alternate between adding flour/baking power/salt with milk and vanilla. Stir in oats, raisins etc. Put in pan and bake for 30-35 minutes; cut in squares. Eat them the way they are or you can spread a little jam or honey on top! Delicious and healthy!!!
