For some reason granola reminds me of my grandma-my best friend and my role model.
Into the mix went:
3 cups rolled oats
3 T brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon (lessen if you’re not a cinnamon-aholic)
1/3 cup agave (or honey, or other sweetener)
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tsp vanilla & butter nut imitation flavor
Bake at 300 degrees for 10 minutes; stir granola around and bake for 10 more minutes, or until golden.
I failed miserably at baking a new recipe for cupcakes. Due to a lack of baking powder, they came out as a solid chunk of vanilla. I still ate them anyways.
I spent 4 hours deep-cleaning 3 bathrooms at my new condo. Bugs, dust, grime, strangers’ hair…totally my cup of tea.
I went to my first epicurean market. I picked up some fig preserves because I mean, why not? I plan on trying to make some homemade Fig Newtons just for kicks and giggles.
Couldn’t pass up some Fightin’ Texas Aggie coffee-whoop!
I gave blackberry jam another shot. The first batch a few weeks ago was rock solid (a recurrent theme, eh?), but this time it was perfect. Atleast I got a little somethin somethin right!
I spent sweet time with my poor dog who had eye surgery twice last week. Despite the many cone-induced bruises all over my legs, I can’t help but empathize for this sweet thang and love taking care of him.
After a rough week with food, slipping into old eating and exercise habits, I’m ready to start this week off right. So why not start with a big bowl of oatmeal instead of my never-ending bowl of cereal!
Have a good day!
OH…and did I mention that my team lost the championship last night?
