No Card Today - Rainy Day in Cape Town

We are experiencing one of those wet days in Cape Town today.  It started raining from about midday and it hasn't stopped. My Mom decided to make some crunchies and as she was about to put it in the oven, the fuse blew and she called me in desperation to collect her still raw crunchies to place in my oven or else she'd have to throw her mixture away. I was in the middle of straightening out my stash, as I had purchased some lovely new boxes to place them in and had to quickly don a raincoat and dash to assist.  When I returned home, her dish wouldn't fit in my oven, so I had to lift all the crunchies out one by one and place them in my ovenproof dish.  It took about 4 times of following this process before all the crunchies were finally baked and here's the result.  There's nothing nicer than the smell of home baking on a cold, wintry, wet day!  I'm sure you'll agree.  Wherever you are, I hope you're having fun this Saturday.  Take care, Sharon

They look very good Sharon so they must have turned out great. Do they taste as good as they look? :) I bet they do!

Best wishes from foggy Holland.

Thanks for your comments friends. The crunchies came out very well. Ages since I've had some and they taste delicious with a cup of tea or coffee. Wish you were here, so that we could enjoy them together. Hugs Sharon
