I've been using my Christmas dishes these last few days. I mean, if not now then when?
No more boxed cereal for Those Rascals. No way, from now on it's All Granola All The Time.
I made Jamie Oliver's recipe (well, it's a variation) and it's quite delicious.
1 cup raw sunflower seeds
1 cup raw sesame seeds
1 cup walnuts
(chop the nuts in your food processor for a few seconds)
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1 cup dried sour cherries
1 cup dried sour apricots
Yes you've missed the toasting-in-the-oven bit!
What you want to do is toast a handful in a dry skillet just before you eat it, then drizzle on some honey and add some milk. Voila delicious warm granola!
I was planning to wear this silk blouse to church today, I think it's very Sunday Best-ish:
|The tree outside my window.|
I decided I had better trade out an item in my wardrobe if I was going to add a new dress, one-in-one-out and all...
Where did it all go? To my young friend Meg who loves clothes and is a medical doctor just starting her residency... everything fit her and I know she'll get great use out of it. It pleases me no end to think of her wearing those clothes.
I think I'll get to more de-cluttering after Christmas, with the New Year creeping up on us it seems like just the time.
How is your pre-Christmas Monday going? Any last minute preparations?
