Googling showed it to be a light sugar syrup. :0

Just made spiral ham and brie grilled cheese. So good. :D

Um, golden syrup. Its a little bit hard to explain... Its the same sort of consistency as treacle (dark syrup) but then it has the colour of honey... I use it in place of corn syrup (since ive NEVER seen that in our shops!) but apparently the flavour can change a little.

A google on my favourite foodie website said that a substitute for golden syrup to provide a very similar flavour is made by combining two parts light corn syrup plus one part molasses OR equal parts honey and corn syrup


.: EDIT :.

Kiba, if i'd read your message properly... I make oaty flapjacks by using honey instead of syrup...

200 grams unsalted butter, 200 grams brown sugar, 200 grams honey, 200 grams muselli, 200 grams porridge oats, 50 grams chocolate chips.

line the tin as you normally would and set oven to 180 degrees centigrade (sorry, i dont know the farenheit conversion!). Melt the butter and mix in the honey and sugar until its all well mixed and single consistency. stir in the muselli and porridge oats and chocolate chips (add these last or they melt!) and mix so its all well and coated. Pour into the lined tray, flatten it out so that its about 2-3 cm thick, then bung it in the oven for about 20 minutes.

They come out a big sticky, a bit chewwy but its all good. They're amazing. I've subbed the choc chips for dried fruit before such as raisins or tropical mix, all work equally good

Speaking of food (or drinks), I've gotten really into these Neuro drinks lately. I hard the Sleep ones work wonder, but I don't need any help with sleep, so I got the Bliss and Sonic ones for energy and stress. Not sure if its a placebo effect or what, but I think they work. And even if they really don't, I figure I'm getting a couple good tasting drinks out of it.

I also tried the Daily drink, but I HATED the after taste. It was way too strong for me.

I've also discovered that bacon in a TV dinner is actually not good. Does not cook, freeze, and reheat well. And it was even mac and cheese too. I was surprised I didn't like it.

I've always wanted to do that :lol: good to know it doesn't taste very good. I wonder why though? Isn't bacon supposed to be good on everything?? My life is a lie.

I love those! I don't like the mango taste but the sleep one is the one I need the most vov
but I don't really like mangos tbh

I've been eating a lot at work lately, and I've re-discovered my love of bean burritos with onions and guac B)

I'm gearing up for Christmas Cookie Time. Last year I made so many cookies I had to give them away at work, to random people I met on the street, and basically everyone else. This year we're having a holiday part, so I need to figure out how many to make.

Hmmm

I bought way too many peppermint kisses for my cookies this year, I now have to bags to either make for cookies or eat. In my defense, they only ever sell them at christmas, so I have to stock up >.>

Eventually they should look like this

Does anyone have any good recipes for gingerbread and/or molassas cookies? I don't have a good one

I will eat the peppermint candies, Debb. I LOVE peppermint. That's one of the reason's I like this time of year. I always have to stock up too because you can't ever get it during the rest of the year.

I've also been craving sushi, but there's this little place that's only open from 11:30 to 3:30 that does a three rolls + miso soup deal for $7.50 (a lot cheaper than what is found around the area). I just never seem to get there on time, and there's always a huge queue ; uuu ;

Yeah I feel that. Whenever I'm in the city I always go to Sushi Edo, $3.50 a plate for all the train stuff. Not sure if you guys have one in Melb but I highly recommend it if you do. :)

We do have an Edo Sushi, but it doesn't have a sushi train. There are a few sushi train joints for sometimes $3 a plate.

On the topic of food however, I made vegan mac and cheese, but since my carrots are purple, my mac and cheese is very purple now.

I so want cake right now. Just... Cake. I probably could go make myself a mugcake, but I want, like, golden cake, maybe vanilla, with strawberries and raspberries, and I'm not great at vanilla cake yet.
