No cooking today.
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.

Made custard today for Portuguese Custard Tarts.  Iíve found that it is best if made 1 or 2 days before I make the tarts. I have been having a campaign to make them perfect in the new ovens.
What I do is make custard beforehand.  Also do the pastry the night before and cover with Glad wrap and put in the fridge.  In the morning of when I want the tarts, I remove both from fridge . Switch on both oven to 200 and the grill in the other oven. Fill the cases and pop into oven to bake. This cooks the base and custard but does give the brown spots on the custard.  I then pop them under the grill and watch like a hawk and remove when satisfied. They just slide out of the muffin tins after 5 minutes.

Judy, about the same as in the old oven, perhaps a little better cooked on the base and easier to remove from the tin. I go to so much trouble as I give most away.
We are having visitors for afternoon tea on Wednesday. I thought I would make Mabs Ginger fluff sponge. I should practice first.

Hi Sue, nice to see you posting again.  The recipe looks and sounds amazing and we all love RTE recipes here on the forum. We even have a section for reviewing recipes we try.
https://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=17593.0

Iím going to make a batch of this recipe for my DD as I have so many of the ingredients already on hand after making some granola recently. Thank you for posting the link to the conversion.

Yum Judy.
Thanks for that link Sue. I'm going to give them a try. It's lovely to hear from you again.
I made some muesli bars from SBS food today. They are from Poh I think. It's just seeds and nuts and held together with honey and then baked. Very nice. I may have had a couple of small pieces.

I was a bit ambitious cookie, both items too gluggy for me so theyíre in the freezer for the kids.
Love the look of your muesli bar and that pretty plate, a cook has to test her recipes.

I recently saw a nice crunchy granola recipe and had an idea that if I turned it into a powder I could use it in my breakfast smoothie.  My current diaticianís smoothie is sustagen, oats, banana and peanut butter so I though the addition of various dried fruit and different nuts would be a change.  I went online and started looking at different granola recipes and low and behold Jamie Oliver had already though of my idea https://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/fruit-recipes/awesome-granola-dust/
I bought all the ingredients and made half a batch as with my luck I wouldnít like it.  I was a little disappointed in the taste (the one I make is tastier) but there is more goodness in it so I now alternate the 2 recipes.  Jamie has ideas on how to use the powder so I tried the pancakes but no thanks, ate 1 and threw the rest of the mixture out.

Could you sort of combine the 2 ideas Judy?

Well I guess I could add a tablespoon or two of the granola dust to the dieticianís smoothie but it would then need more liquid otherwise Iíd have to eat it with a spoon and it might be too gluggy cookie. Iíll try it when I make up tonightís mix for tomorrowís breakfast. I like to soak both the recipes overnight otherwise even the blitzing doesnít break down the oats component enough, I want to be able to drink it. Will let you know how it goes, thanks cookie.
