Today's Recipe

Something more lighthearted than the last post. Today was a crazy busy day. dd2 and I managed to finish the bedroom swap. I wrapped presents during dd3's naptime. Dinner was a desperate thing since the hamburger didn't thaw enough for meatloaf. The carrot cake for baby Jesus's birthday is made but not frosted yet. I made this granola this morning before things got crazy. It's an old favorite recipe.

½ cup margarine
½ cup honey
½ cup brown sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cinnamon
5 cups oatmeal
½ cup raisins
Melt the margarine, honey, and brown sugar together over medium heat. Cook and stir until it bubbles up. Remove from heat. Add the salt and cinnamon and stir in the oatmeal. Stir it thoroughly so all the oatmeal is evenly coated. Spread onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool. Add raisins now if you want and put in an airtight container/bag.

You can use corn syrup in place of honey or all brown sugar.
