Most mornings I eat a breakfast of vanilla yogurt (Stoneyfield Farms is my absolute favorite) with flax seed grain and fresh fruit: raspberries, blueberries or strawberries. If the market fruit is not satisfactory then I will use frozen blueberries. This along with a cold glass of orange juice will get me through my busy morning of homeschooling until lunchtime.
For several months, truly it has been that long, I have had hankerings for some homemade granola. I just simply have not taken the time to make a batch. Oh..... am I ever glad I took the time this morning right before I started on Charlotte's reading lesson. She pulled up her trusty stool and we proceeded to make my dreams come true right then and there. I am calling this
