Last weekend I finished working on another little sweater for our expected grandie that's due to arrive in January. Pattern is THIS one - I did the short-sleeved version because I didn't think I had enough yarn to do long sleeves...
RESIDENT CHEF'S GRANOLA
(NOTE: This makes a lot but it keeps
a very long time if you seal it well)
8 c. rolled oats (not the instant kind)
1 1/2 cups EACH: wheat germ and oat bran
1 cup EACH: sunflower seeds; rye flakes;
cashews or pecans (finely chopped); almonds
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 c. maple syrup
3/4 c. vegetable oil
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 c. honey
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. dried cranberries or raisins (or combination)
1 c. coconut
Preheat oven to 325. Line two large baking sheets with parchment or aluminum foil. Combine dry ingredients. Combine remaining ingredients with the exception of the vanilla, cranberries, raisins and coconut and bring to a boil over medium heat. Add vanilla and pour over dry ingredients and stir to coat. Spread evenly on baking sheets. Bake until crispy and toasted, about 20 minutes. Stir once halfway through. Cool, and then add the cranberries, raisins and coconut.
-THIS is for the knitters who are wondering about different types of stretchy bind-offs.
- I really like THESE - and they wouldn't be too hard to make
- THIS is a nice cross stitch design
- HERE is a great hat pattern that would work up really quickly for adding to your gifts under the tree.
