Anyways, I will still tell you about the granola I made today. It is so good! I have been munching on it all day, hopefully there will be some left for Erin to try :)
I have really become obsessed with eating greek yoghurt, topped with honey and granola. Yum, yum, yum. However, all of those things are expensive :/ I'm pretty sure I won't be making my own greek yoghurt (maybe regular though!) or honey, so I will make my own granola then!
I already mentioned my girl Shaye from the Elliot Homestead blog, but this is her recipe and I followed it exactly. It cost me about $8 in ingredients that I bought in bulk from my natural foods co-op. It yielded roughly 8 cups of granola, holla! I usually spend about $4 for 2 cups :( The only downfall about this recipe is that it is not sprouted, but it is organic. So this girl is happy. Did I mention this takes about 10 minutes of active work and it bakes in 30 minutes? Sounds great to me.
|Yum! It has oats, flax seed, dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, buckwheat groats (what the heck are those??), coconut flakes, chopped pecans, and honey.|
This was the state of my kitchen this morning, after I filled my dishwasher too! So many dishes from Easter and me hehe.
For Easter, I made a lot of food and took no pictures, boo. Here was the menu:
-French onion soup, topped with sliced baguettes and shredded Gruyere cheese
-Homemade soaked whole wheat biscuits
-Spiral sliced ham
-Brussel Sprouts (they have such a bad reputation but are AMAZing)
After our guests left, Erin and I watched a movie. But really he watched it as I slept on the couch. It was a long day!
And for dinner tonight, I am making split pea soup! MMMM. Have you ever been to Anderson's Pea Soup in Santa Nella? I love me some pea soup. So I'm making it tonight with the left over ham and ham bone. I soaked the split peas today for about 7 hours in some water with a little kefir. Now they are cookin away in the hot tub.
|This is seriously my favorite pot ever. When the soup is done, I will take out the bone, use my immersion blender to blend the peas, shred the meat and add it back to the pot. Viola!|
