Post image for book club update

a little while ago i asked you all to vote on our next book club selection out of six choices that were picked from your suggestions when we first started the book club.  the winner of the vote was stephen chbosky’s “the perks of being a wallflower.” however we also received several comments from people who felt strongly that we not select that book. unfortunately we can’t make everyone happy, but before we make a decision i wanted to ask you all for your opinion one more time.

would you be interested in reading “the perks of being a wallflower?” or would you rather us choose a different book? let us know in the comments section!

Read On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan. You will not be disappointed and it will be a good discussion.

homemade granola

Post image for homemade granola

i love granola – but it has never occurred to me to try and make my own! i found this recipe on the kitchn and they raved about it, so i think i might try it.  plus granola is a great energy-boosting snack that is perfect to bring along on hikes or other outdoor activities you might be doing on a nice day like today…

ingredients:
3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 1/2 cups raw pistachios, hulled
1 cup raw pumpkin seeds, hulled
1 cup coconut chips
3/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
3/4 cup chopped dried apricots

fresh berries, for serving (optional).

directions:
1. preheat oven to 300 degrees. in a large bowl, combine oats, pistachios, pumpkin seeds, coconut chips, maple syrup, olive oil, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon and cardamom. spread mixture on a rimmed baking sheet in an even layer and bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until golden brown and well toasted.

2. transfer granola to a large bowl and add apricots, tossing to combine. serve with yogurt or fresh fruit, if desired.

*makes about 9 cups.

Please keep posting recipes! I love to cook! I made the dew drop smoothies from a few posts back (they didn't come out very well) and I'll probably try my hand at this recipe this week.

Listed here is a notion-probably SJWs let the industry determine if they are basically superior and must design their own activities. They are therefore familiar with having Television and movie audiences head to regardless of the (overwhelmingly leftist) movie critics inform them is good that they are stunned and upset when they realize that gamers don't truly just instantly like the activities that they are instructed they should like.

That is why only two or three credit cards including nationwide visa card, Lombard credit card and capital one credit card are there which have almost zero percent foreign currency transaction fees. Interest rates vary from extremely high for people with low or no credit rating to as low as 0 percent for those with great credit. If you are one of millions of Americans struggling with finding a way to come up with cash this holiday season, a car title loan could be your answer.

Post image for sxsw update

good morning and happy friday!

i heard from our fp girls down in austin and they’re having an amazing time already at sxsw – they told me about a couple of events taking place this weekend that they’re really excited about:

austin carniville started yesterday and runs through saturday, with a lineup of several great bands including major lazer and the walkmen – plus there will be rides, games, food and more. mmm funnel cake…

carniville is at the mexican american cultural center, 600 river st. in austin.

another event that our girls are attending is taking place tonight at the galaxy room. this showcase includes a handful of great bands such as the antlers, local natives, and the band they’re most excited about – an horse (pictured above). more info here.

so what is everyone doing this weekend? any exciting plans?
