Busy Day! And It’s PB Granola Time!

Hello, hello

Today has been a very busy, productive day!  I arrived home from Austria around 8 last night (2am European time) and felt like I had a lot of catching up to do.  So naturally I couldn’t sleep and was up and at it this morning!

Breakfast

I started my day with peach flavored greek yogurt and topped it with GoLean cereal and chopped pineapples slices (that’s basically all we had in the kitchen)  The combination of flavors was delicious!

Lunch

Around noon I was starving for lunch so I re-heated leftovers from Mike’s dinner.  Annie’s mac & cheese, steamed broccoli, and sausage.  Another great meal today (I’m 2 for 2!)

Peanut Butter Granola

As much as I like GoLean cereal on my greek yogurt, it’s nothing compared to home-made granola.  So I decided to whip up a quick batch this afternoon and used my peanut butter granola recipe found here.  I also added sunflower seeds to the mix and baked it longer than the last time (about 35 minutes).  This recipe is super easy and most of the ingredients you probably already have in your cabinets at home.

This granola doesn’t come out as crunchy as some other granola recipes but it’s still tastes amazing!  Any suggestions on how to make it more crunchy or clumpy?  Another perk about pb granola is that it instantly makes your entire place smell like peanut butter! 😀

 

I tried to be a little festive and use a Christmas tin for storing the granola in the fridge.  Mike and I have about 4 Christmas decorations so I might as well use them, right?  Actually now that I think about it, this might be my mom’s tin that I “borrowed”….  Guess it’s time to stop at Christmas Tree Shop to stock up and really decorate my place this year.

Btw can we quickly talk about how Rocky went from being a semi-normal cat just baskin’ in the sun….

To a freak within seconds….

Ha, what a weirdo!
