06/19 & 06/20

drove up to Winona Lake yesterday with Bradley and Bora.
it's not my home town, but it feels like another home.

Bradley's sister Sarah and her boyfriend Brian were in town from Boston.

[Evening] Went out on the lake on Workman's boat at 11pm
Watched shooting stars
Hung out with good friends.

[Morning] All day we were on Bradley's boat on the lake
Spent time with his family.
The sunshine was relaxing.
The water was warm.
Bora went swimming.

[Currently] Back in Indianapolis, we move in less than 6 days!

Give this recipe a try for making granola.

3/4 C. Brown Sugar
1/2 C. Oil
1/3 C. Honey
5 C. Oatmeal
1/2 C. Raisins
1/2 C. Dry Milk
3/4 tsp. Cinnamon
1/4 tsp. Salt
Mix brown sugar, oil, and honey in a saucepan. Heat until the sugar is dissolved. Combine dry ingredients in a large cake pan. Pour sugar mixture over dry mixture and mix well. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. Let cool in pan. Add raisins. Store in an airtight container.

dissolving brown sugar, honey, and oil ... looks kind of weird.

all the dry ingredients mixed

finally baked to golden perfect ... bora thinks i made something for her

i forgot the raisins at the store :(
