Well I needed something to go with all that yogurt I just made, right?? And ’tis the season for making everything pumpkin, right? Well, I got my googling fingers going and came across Healthy Food for Living blog and the recipe I have linked. Granola is something is so cheap to make at home but wicked expensive to buy in the store (pulled out my Mainer there budday).
I followed the recipe word for word, so you can jump over to her blog to see the recipe. I used chopped walnuts and sunflower seeds (raw) for the nuts and raisins for the fruit.
I do, however, I have the nutritional info for you! Granola calories can sometimes make your heart stop when you see how dense they are but this one isn’t too bad!
I had a full online cart of preschool stuff that I started probably over a month ago to start doing home preschooling with my 3 year old (and with my 19 month old).
So everything is from Discount School Supply. Free shipping with purchases over $79 and their prices are really low and they have a great selection. I didn’t want to be buying stuff from all over and paying shipping 8 different times from 8 different online stores. So this is our goodies from our preschool supply haul! (I was going to call it “loot” but then I realized this stuff wasn’t found or stolen…)
So what we have here is:
4 bottles of liquid water colors
4 bottles of tempera paint
2 packages of markers
1 big bag of pipe cleaners
12 pack of colored trays (for color sorting and giving the boys their own tray of stuff…hoping it keeps down the fighting and taking)
12 pack of big handled brushes
8 glue wand thingy’s (I’m going to experiment with glue and how it is most easily used by my big guy)
1 bottle of Elmer’s glue
500 pages of recycled easel paper
1 pack of googly eyes (random…but a must-have!)
1 pack of colored feathers
2 washable paint smocks
1 pack magnetic counter chips
2 sets of paint cups
2 pairs of blunt end kid scissors
1 pack of blank leaf cutouts from watercolor paper (’tis the season!)
1 pack jeweled alphabet pieces (like for a light table)
5 packages of massive sized construction paper (white, brown, black, purple, green, blue, yellow, pink, red and orange in each)
I totally recommend ordering from DSS, the stuff ships from San Fran so I ordered it on Friday and it was here on Tuesday, pretty quick considering shipping was free!
