Moon and stars

"The only disadvantages of oatcake are the speed with which it dissappears, and the crumbs left scattered all over the table and the floor after an oatcake meal. Gracie McDermot told me that in her childhood oatcake was known as the 'Moon and Stars', the round oatcake or bannock toasted before the peat fire on the iron being the moon and the 'sheetful of crumbs' the stars".
