I am getting lots done on my Grandmothers Flower Garden quilt while watching season 2 of "Little House on the Prairie" so all is not lost. Also getting caught up on some blog reading.... The good is I am enjoying all the posts I have gotten behind on, the bad is I am making notes on things you other ladies are doing/making that I have on my must do soon list.
One that has me green with envy today is Carla's post at "1/2 Dozen Daily" on her fresh and tidy sewing room. I love how she wraps her fabric to keep it nice a neat as well as allowing her to see what she has got on hand. Wonder how hubby would feel if I add a little more work on him to keep me occupied, I would love to wrap my fabric as well.
Rhonda over at "If you do stuff stuff gets done" Is remaking her craft room and baking like a crazy lady. Not sure hubby is up to baking fresh bread but I might just run it by him HA Both blogs are on my sidebar
Here is the Granola recipe I promised to pass on, super easy and really good. Instead of adding chocolate chips you could add any sort of dried fruit. The recipe came from the book "Make the Bread, Buy the Butter" by Jennifer Reese. This is a really good cookbook for those of you who are like me land reads a cookbook from cover to cover!!
3 Cups rolled oats
1 cup roughly cut almonds
1/2 cup pecans
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/3 cup maple syrup
3/4 cups coconut
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
3/4 tsp salt
Mix all together, spread on a cookie sheet and bake in a 250 degree oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes. You don't need to stir during baking.
I have changed the recipe a bit. I always make a double batch and bake on a jelly roll pan. I use chopped walnuts for all the nuts since we like that the best. I substitute honey for syrup, I can get honey locally. I don't add wheat germ because I don't have any. Of course a few chocolate chips go in our mix. Enjoy!!
