Encouraging Hearts and Home 07.23.2020

Strawberry Snaps, Chocolate Chip Pie, Summer Squash Lasagne, and DIY Shopping Bag are this week's featured posts!

Hello and Welcome!

Today is granola making day! I try to eat oats every day. I divide my breakfasts between granola, baked oatmeal, Scottish oats, and occasionally a serving of overnight oats. The easiest of these is cooked oatmeal. A pan of oatmeal is cooked and served throughout the week with the help of the microwave to get it good and hot. Sometimes I cook oatmeal with raisins, sometimes not. Sometimes I make poached dried fruit to enjoy on top along with a dab of butter, and a drizzle of honey.

Brown Sugar and Cinnamon Granola, in the works!

But the granola is a different issue! It is crisp, baked to a golden brown, and always enjoyed! I have two basic flavors Honey Almond and Maple Pecan that I enjoy and here recently I have been playing around with a new flavor of granola, one inspired by a childhood favorite - Pop-Tarts! Yes, you read that right, Brown Sugar and Cinnamon Pop-Tarts were a favorite when they came out in 1964. And I am old enough to remember that day because when my mom went shopping, a box came home! And I never forgot that flavor combination and now I enjoy that same flavor in my newest granola flavor...

It took me a while to remember my reusable bags, but now I am good to go...this one is nice and would make a great gift for a friend when filled with goodies just for them!
