Sunday morning at Panera! I decided not to have the Gingerbread bagel, but go back to classic blueberry. Nom, nom!
It was nice to chit chat with John and just have some down time. We stopped off for groceries afterward.
Still have this sign up!
Of course, they have no more of those mixes, either! They need to change their sign…
We’ll have to keep checking the little stores around to stock up. 😀
Fridge/freezer cleanout for lunch! I had 1 waffle topped with the last Boca Burger and some laughing cow cheese.
Plus 2 clementines! These are so good. You’ll be seeing lots of these this week! I have decided I don’t care for the Boca Burgers anymore. I used to eat them all the time, and as I moved away from processed foods and soy, those left, too. I got a box for old time’s sake and didn’t care for them.
Work was really slow today. I did not get a single file until 5 hours into my workday.That means having to take some PTO if I want to get paid for today!
However, that did mean some play time in the kitchen. I made up a new batch of granola that I named Cranapple Spice:
- 1/8 cup of maple syrup
- 1/8 cup of of apple juice concentrate
- 2 tsp sunflower (or other light) oil
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1/4 cup slivered almonds
- 1/4 cup of dried cranberries, chopped
Preheat oven to 275 F. In a bowl, mix together the apple juice concentrate, maple syrup, oil, salt, vanilla, and spice until thoroughly mixed. Add in the oats and almonds and stir/mash really well until the oats are thoroughly coated. It may not look like enough liquid, but it is. Pour onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Bake at 275 for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring the batch every 15 minutes. Remove from oven and add the chopped dried cranberries. Very lightly sweet and crunchy. Delicious!
Lots of football watching today!
