Oh dear, there simply is not time or energy to blog in the evenings anymore. Sometimes I can barely carry on coherent conversation by the time Sean picks me up after work. But, the summer will end soon enough and then maybe I will be able to have a little break after filling in for everyone else’s vacations. Until then, please forgive me if I only manage to blog once or twice a week. (And also, don’t worry. I’m not unhappy in the least; only very busy.)
But now I would like to encourage you to try making your own granola. I’ve read many a place that said oatmeal is the healthiest breakfast one can possibly eat, so here is the crunchy kind: easy to make and super for adding whatever flavors you like. I’ll point you to the recipe I’ve been using here. Just know that it’s very O.k. to experiment with any variety of nuts, dried fruits, flavored extracts, sugars (maple syrup, honey, molasses, brown sugar), and spices. One recipe is about the equivalent of a store-bought box of cereal, so create to your heart’s content. Happy breakfasting!
