one less trip to the store

Taste tester for our yummy granola


When you don't feel like packing the kids in the car to go grocery shopping you get a bit creative with what you've got in the cupboards. In this case, we had everything we needed for homemade granola. I put the bowl on the floor and let the kids mix their hearts out as I added the ingredients. We used oats, almonds, coconut, honey, oil, raisins, and added some dried banana after baking. Unfortunately I burnt the first batch, but the second one turned out great!
Later that day I attempted to let Shepherd paint. He lasted about 10 seconds, then wouldn't stop putting his paint covered hand in his mouth.
