Brian and the boys making his famous Bread and Butter Pud, no recipe sorry, just something he wings every time.

This last week was almost a write off. We all ended up with gastro, so the menu plan went out the window for the most part. Then the rest of the week was shuffled around. But that's the beauty of having a plan, it can be flexible.

Mon ~ Sick
Tues ~ Marinated thigh fillets and steamed veg
Wed ~ Chicken past bake
Thurs ~ Chicken, bacon and mushroom casserole
Fri ~ Steak and veg
Sat ~ Homemade Pizza
Sun ~ Roast lamb and veg

~ Hot Milk Cake
~ Date and Oat Slice

~ Bread and Butter Pudding

Tucker Tuesday ~ Recipe: Honey Crackles

Honey Crackles, or Honey Joys as they are also known as, are one of those childhood treats that I haven't made in years!
Brian mentioned about making them the other week and I made a mental note to do so. Then Eli had his surgery and my focus was on that.
The other day Eli saw them being made on Play School so I wrote down cornflakes on the shopping list for later that week.
We made them yesterday. The boys had lots of fun stirring and then carefully pouring the mix into some cute little dinosaur cupcake wrappers my mum picked up somewhere for the boys.
Unfortunately the kids weren't that interested in them once they came out of the oven. Oh well more for the rest of us!

Honey Crackles
4C cornflakes
100g butter
1/4C sugar
1T honey

Preheat your oven to 180C.
Melt the butter, sugar and honey in a small saucepan over a medium heat until melted and the sugar is dissolved.
In a larger bowl have the cornflakes ready and then pour over the melted mix.
Sir the cornflakes gentle until all the flakes are coated in the honey buttery goodness.
Spoon into about 24 small cupcake wrappers. Not the mini ones, but not the big ones either.
Pop them into the oven and bake for about 10 minutes. Allow to cool.

Have you made Honey Crackles lately? What is the one treat from your childhood that you have made recently or would love to make (go on do it, you'll love it!)?
