Morning! I was surprised to find such a chilly morning because we’re supposed to get up near 80* today! I turned the heat off a few days ago when it was warmer outside than it was inside, so this morning I found myself shivering in bed and came down to 63*!
I made some good progress on my oatmeal report last night, so I just have to wrap that up with a discussion and then glue some colorful Excel graphs on some un-environmentally friendly paper on an un-environmentally friendly giant, expensive posterboard. I tried to convince my professor we should be able to do PowerPoint – that would have made my life MUCH easier, saved some $$ and some trees – but she said we had to do posters so that we could present these at the ADA convention if we wanted. Um, I don’t my experiment is even close to being worthy of the ADA! (Guess that’s my fault though 😉 )
So point of the story is I am |this close| to being finished with ALL of my projects!
Since I was freezing when I came down at 7:30 this morning I had no choice but to make oats and coffee.
But that was still exciting because I had this granola to put on as a topping!
The KERF mix included French vanilla granola, dried blackberries + raspberries (LOVE those), roasted cashews and oatbran flakes. I am super happy with my mix. I love the addition of the oatbran flakes – they add a whole ‘nother dimension. (Does anyone else say ‘nother’ as a word there? Is it supposed to be ‘other’!?)
On top of a simple whipped banana oat base with some flax, a few extra salted peanuts, and Jif Natural PB (blobbed on top). I am not a big fan of the Jif Natural. I only have it leftover from yesterday’s tasting. It’s super candy-like – just like the original Jif, so if you have a husband/boyfriend/friend who will only eat classic Jif, I bet they will love this one.
The Mix My Granola was SUPER. But I gotta mention the biggest con: you don’t get much for the price. I could not afford to buy this regularly, but as a gift or a few times a year treat to get just what you want, it’s awesome.

Us Blog Summiters are working on gathering info to make some planning decisions. Please take our survey (just once – if you’ve already taken it on another blog you’re good to go!) if you’re interested in the Blog Summit!
I just checked into the Blogger’s Choice Awards and KERF has 80 votes! THANK YOU! But the current Best Food Blog only has 126. I am so jealous they get to have the number 26 by their name, I’d love to have it by mine too
Happy Thursday 🙂
