My family thinks I'm crazy for going out of my way to prepare homemade foods. Take today as an example - this morning is Megan's Granola day (to be followed with homemade yogurt, pita bread, and engligh muffins). My cousin shook her head and said "What
a waste of time. One trip to the store and you're done".
As I'm assembling the ingredients for the granola, I was reminding myself to be sure to check the almonds and walnuts for shells as the grandkids always seem to miss them (which reminded me of our trips into the hills hunting for nuts and how my youngest grandson
scolded the squirrels for only eating half nuts and leaving the rest to rot - oh, and how they fought over which nut cracker the other got);
Almost out of sunflower seeds - make a mental note to plant more sunflowers this year (which led to memories of my husband parading around this summer with giant sunflowers in his hair).
Honey - I must get more honey (recollections of my daughter screaming for help in the health food store as she couldn't figure out how to turn the honey machine off ).
Oats - oh how I loathed them! (grandpa scolding me to eat my all oatmeal or I couldn't go out riding today and grandmother secretly slipping a little more brown sugar into my bowl).
Yeah - maybe I am crazy. I could have just gone to Walmart and bought a box of granola.
But all in all, I'm glad I'm nuts.
