My mom says: “You were born in the wrong era”, and my dad says, “Jason has it made, it doesn’t take much to make you happy”. My sister says, ” you must be pregnant, that’s the only reasonable, reason you are doing these things” I say,” I’m not pregnant and it’s fun to make make things myself”. This was my breakfast this morning, homemade yogurt, home made granola and my own dried apple chips.
It’s very homey, satisfying and tasty eating so homemade. Yogurt is simple to make with a incubator, and granola simple and it makes the house smell so-so good. Wanna try it this is all you have to do.
This granola is called,”His Mansion Granola” because that is where the recipe came from. We ate this every Friday for breakfast.
In a sauce pan combine: 2/3 c. peanut butter, 1/3 c. oil ( the recipe actually says 2/3 c. oil and no water but… recipes are a guideline, right?) … So 1/3 c. water, 3 tablespoons each; honey, molasses, and syrup. Got that? O.k lets keep going, 2 teaspoons vanilla and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Warm this all up so it is melted together, then add 5 cups of dry oats. Spread onto a baking sheet and toast in oven at 300 F, until golden brown, (careful once it starts to toast it goes fast and burnt granola is…. well, it’s gross, but don’t tell my girls I said that). Let it cool, add whatever goodies you might want ie: peanuts, raisins, coconut, chocolate chips ( hey, why not? it’s still better than Coco Puffs and besides we cut down on the oil remember?) and store in a sealed container. Enjoy on ice cream, yogurt, or with milk. So the question is, Do you agree with my mom, dad, sister or do you have another explanation for why I do the things I do?
