So today I decided to make a big batch of granola for the next few days of breakfast. I’ve been sick this week and have wanted to do absolutely nothing. Nooothing. The sunshine outside has just been mocking me, begging me to go on a jog or hang in the hammock, but instead I was lying on the couch, wrapped in blankets, wishing someone would bring me some broth. Or DayQuil.
But today I was feeling a touch better, still exhausted and drooping, but at least I am walking around. So, I made a big batch of granola. And I changed it up. And guess what!?
It was bad.
I mean it. It was not good. It was not sweet enough and it was too dry.
So I tried to fix it. I sauteed it with faux butter. This made it less dry for sure, but it actually diluted the sweetness even more. Ew. I mean, no one would eat this. No person or child. I can already imagine my kids literally spitting this out, partially chewed, onto the floor.
So I added more honey. And now it’s…. PERFECT. It’s sweeter than usual, but I still like it (it’s not overly sweet) and since I added the honey afterward, it was much more clumpy which I love!
So for now it’s solved, but I think what we learned is that my recipe is not fool proof. Also, maybe I should not do projects when my brain is still super fuzzy from sickness and cold medicine. I kept accidentally typing the wrong thing yesterday when I was trying to finish some emails – maybe pregnancy brain and cold brain are related? I’m not pregnant, but my brain felt similarly fuzzy.
Now I at least do not have to make breakfast for the next few days! Let’s just hope my taste buds are not also compromised and I find out tomorrow that the granola is actually disgusting. Here’s hoping!
Hopefully I’ll get better soon and then I will See You Outside!
