Over the last few weeks I've been making granola for breakfast. It's so delicious, especially with some stewed rhubarb and home made yogurt. Who needs fancy cafe breakfasts when you can whip up this luxury and have it every single day?
As fast as I've been making it, Action Man and I have been hoovering it up, and I am only too glad to make some more. Did I mention it's damn delicious? Even more, the smell of granola toasting is one of the best smells you can get, in my opinion (along with Charles de Gaulle roses, espresso coffee brewing and line-dried laundry).
My version is heavy on the nuts and seeds. Could this be why the waistband on my favourite pants is suddenly tight? Sigh.
On other matters eating, last week I mused about a possible wheat intolerance. Well, I've been giving wheat a wide berth, but last night I made garlic toast to eat with soup and had a piece with no ill effect. Maybe wheat's not to blame after all. I'll just keep tinkering with my diet to see what works best.
What's your favourite smell?
