When Teddy lays down she always leaves one foot tucked under her and one foot out behind her so she can leap up fast if she has to run after something. She is always ready for a quick getaway.
This is the look that tells me...'time for a treat'.

I made another batch of granola yesterday and thought I would show you the recipe again. I use one large tube of regular oats. I add soy nuts.
Lots of cashews.
Light and dark brown sugar. It really doesn't matter what type of brown sugar you use. I finished off bags I had in the pantry.
Some good cinnamon.
Then I mix all the dry ingredients together thoroughly.
I separate it into two bowls to ake it easier to handle.
In a measuring cup, I pour about 2 cups of canola oil.
Then add two cups of maple syrup.
I pour the oil and syrup over the granola and mix it thoroughly.
I line cookie sheets with foil and spray it with cooking spray so it doesn't stick.
These go into a 300 degree oven until toasted golden. About 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
This is what it should look like when done. I then remove it from the oven and allow it to cool.
Again, I divide it into two bowls.
Then I start adding the dried fruits. I add plenty of raisins.
Dried cranberries. You can add any kind of dried fruit.
Then stir to combine.
Ready to package.
I keep this container on the breakfast counter.
And package large bags for my kids and smaller ones to give to friends. Yes Abbey, you are getting one too!
I opened the first jar of peaches I put up last July. They are fabulous. Please remind me of this next July when I am bitching about peaches.
