We made granola. I made a batch last week after reading about it here. (Thank you, Kim!)
It's my newest food jag. I do that - I find something I really like and I will eat it and eat it until I tire of it. Then onto the next thing. Often I will come full circle and restart food jags, too. For example, after T Rex was born I just could not get enough peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. And they had to be made with grape jelly. This went on for nearly 3 months and then onto something new. Then T Rex Princess was born and it started all over again.
Well, now it's this amazing granola. You can get the recipe here - super easy. Here are some photos of our "activity":
Mix dry oats, seeds, nutmeg, cinnamon in large bowl.
Our most favorite honey - we get it at the farmers market every spring. Personally, I think Idaho has the best bees "free range bees"!
Adding honey mixture - honey, hot water, vanilla, and canola oil.
Toasting in oven. Note, no extra sugar added.
While the granola toasted, T Rex played with his "mens" and I fed the T Rex Princess.
Adding the dried fruit - blueberries, raisins, apricots, and cranberries. I left out the coconut - not a big fan.
Finished product - Mmmmm!!!
My latest crafting jag - knitting baby hats and booties. I've had rave reviews on these little booties - simple yet so charming. In fact, this set is in the mail to Kim for her newest little bundle arriving soon.
Crafted while nursing the baby - that's how simple.
T Rex was a little sad his sister's hats don't fit him so I went ahead and pulled one together for him.
