Encouraging Hearts and Home 10.01.2020

New recipes from Slices of Life, Apple Oatmeal Cake, Brown Paper Bag Flowers, and Easy Instant Pot Pumpkin Oatmeal are this week's featured posts!

 Hello and Welcome!

I have to say as I write these words that I am so glad September is over! Not because of anything bad that had happened, or horrible weather, or even that I gain some weight (I didn't it was a thought of what COULD make for a bad month, LOL!). 

No, I am glad that  September is over because we are done working 7 days a week! This coming Friday will be our first weekend off in four months, and we have a lot of catching up to do. There are pears to can, a cat to pet, complete the installation of the woodstove, a couple of cords of wood to stack, a bit of weeding, and of course, those pantry shelves need to be replenished. 

These delicious recipes are on my list to get my home kitchen back up to speed after four months at camp!

Maple Pecan Granola, one of my favorites! No refined sugar with plenty of whole foods to get the morning started right. 

Honey Almond Granola, perfect for breakfast, or snack anytime of the day.

Honey Almond Granola, because it is always a good idea to have a choice first thing in the mornings!

5 Ingredient Banana Bread, so easy to make and delicious too!

It is time to make another batch of Whole Wheat Self-Rising Flour! The perfect starting point for pancakes, banana bread, brownies, and a whole lot more! 

And now, for This Week's Encouraging Hearts & Home Blog Hop!
