I just made the most delicious granola! Here's the recipe. I used ground flaxseed instead of wheat germ (because I had one and not the other), and less honey, and added some raisins. Oh, and I used chopped peanuts rather than walnuts, because we aren't walnut fans around here.

By the way, one of the coolest compliments that I've gotten was being told that I was "granola." It's not true, of course, I'm pretty mainstream except for the homebirth...but I liked the compliment anyhow.

My other favorite compliment was when I was in Italy--I was told that my hair was like the rays of the sun. Of course, I was told it by a woman, and she spent some time in an asylum, so maybe it's not so credible, but I like it anyhow!

Ooh, thanks for the recipe. I've been thinking of trying to make my own for awhile, since it's so expensive to buy here. Any idea on how to turn it into granola bars??

Yummy! I made some granola lately, too. My recipe is a bit different, but same idea. I think mine has water mixed with the honey to make it easier to get everything wet. Then you don't have to use as much honey. I also put coconut and pecans in mine. Yummy!

No one is more honest than a crazy woman. Your hair IS like a ray of sunshine.

So now, that your babystrology counter is at zero, is it going to start counting how many days past the due date you are?
I want to go to Italy...not so much for the hair compliments (that I wouldn't count on.)
