Quote of the day:
“If the person you are talking to doesn’t appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear.”
– Winnie the Pooh
The Circle has begun. The Knitting Circle, that is. We had our first meeting a few weeks ago, and although not all of the group could be in attendance, it was a delight nevertheless.
A toast with chocalat chou’ made with chili pepper ( just like in the movie, Chocolat!). Tres’ magnifique!
Not sure if the lovely Miss Britt is here waving… or telling us how old she is.
Not one of my finest moments captured on film. Not to mention it looks like I’m stark naked under that apron. I was clothed. I promise.

I am a hungry hungry hippo most of the day. Hungry Faith = Cranky Faith. Not good. So I decided to remedy this.
Hunger is best satiated with granola bars in a pinch. However most granola bars in the stores are EXPENSIVE and/or FULL OF CRAP. Not my favorite combo. So I decided to go online and search for a homemade recipe. The result?
I found THIS recipe and decided to give it a go.
I would like to say that mine turned out as lovely as the ones in the picture below, but alas, they did not. I believe it still needs “tweaking” for mine to be successful, however they were tasty and definitely edible!!
The end result?
More like “clusters”, rather than actual “bars”. Oh well. I shall keep you updated when I finally perfect the perfect bar!!
