Failed Granola Bars and a Contest!
Wow. It’s raining in pouring in San Francisco. They say it’s the beginning of El Nino season! The winds are 25-45 miles per hour and it’s pretty scary out there. Anyway, you know how I spoke of some granola bars in the process of cooling? Um, it’s been 2 days, and they are still wayyy too sticky. It was something along the lines of too much honey, too much brown sugar or…something. I’m going to be making pumpkin granola later this week so hopefully since I’m scratching the whole “bar” concept it will turn out swell! I did however, console myself with a batch of oatmeal sweet potato muffins! They would have been butternut squash, but at $1.29 a can sweet potato won my wallet over.
This mornings breakfast was a mound of failed granola bars and a glass of a new brand of kefir! It was on sale for $3.49 at Whole Foods.
Yuck. Will never ever buy this again. It kind of tasted like spoiled milk flavored with strawberry puree. I couldn’t even finish the glass. I’m not sure if I should throw it away or just use it for smoothies. Suggestions? Also, a friend of mine on the East Coast (North Carolina, to be exact) is offering me mixed CD’s in exchange for a batch of my pumpkin muffins. I’m going to tweak my recipe a bit to make them less moist but does anyone have experience with sending muffins by mail? Here’s my breakfast shot:
