Start of XC season with a meeting!

Today was our XC interest meeting- and the first meeting concerning the start of the 2017 cross country season. It was so busy with new and returning runners. The freshman were very vocal with lots of of questions. As co-captain I got to talk about the upcoming season and share my past experiences with those that wanted to listen. Many people attended which hopefully means we will have plenty of runners for this season!!

Sunday morning Flapjacks

We don’t often find Flapjacks here in NC, so it’s always nice when my Mum makes them. They are lovely and sweet and kind of healthy with the oats thrown in. Thought I would share the recipe – very quick and easy.

  • 4oz light brown sugar
  • 6oz butter
  • 1 dessertspoon of golden syrup
  • 6oz gluten free quaker oats (the healthy part)

In a saucepan melt the sugar, butter and golden syrup together. Turn off the heat and stir in the oats. Pour the mixture into a 8inch square 1.5inch deep tin.  Cook for 35 – 40 mins at gas 2 or 300°f in the middle of the oven until golden brown. Cool in tin for 10 mins then cut into squares.
