I’m a little bit obsessed with this granola. I’ve had it for breakfast over yogurt nearly every day for over a week now. And yesterday I made my second batch and then promptly had it for dinner. It takes quite a few ingredients and nearly a hour (maybe a little more) or your time. But, trust me, this is worth it!
I remember my first migraine like it was yesterday. And that’s not just because I’m having one today, although that certainly helps revive the nostalgia. At the time, I was 8 and my parents were embroiled in a bitter custody battle over me and I was scheduled to talk to a social worker and give input on my current and future living arrangements. I knew that both of my parents were going to be there and that added to the anxiety.
I grew up mostly poor. As a child there was a lot that I didn’t get to have or get to do. But, even still, my mother was very good at creating traditions. For instance, when we lived in the Bay Area she made a tradition of our having breakfast once a month in Palo Alto at The Good Earth. I made my own tradition by ordering exactly the same thing every time: Scrambled Eggs with Cream Cheese and a Berry Shake.
