What Are You Eating Right Now?! (:

Recommended Posts

Just saw the date on this thread, but I figured I'd add to it anyway . . . Being that I am from Hawaii . . . (sorry to gross out anyone) . . . just finished my spam and rice! Yum! Comfort food for hunkering down indoors as we do some social distancing. . . .

Mmmmm ... spam and rice doesn't sound half bad .... I could see it with teriyaki sauce.


Take care.

Recipe by request...

Maple Nut Granola 


4 c oatmeal Bob’s Red Mill extra thick rolled oats

1 c toasted unsweetened coconut flakes (toasted @300° about 6-7 min.) 

1/2 c Bob’s Red Mill hulled hemp or sesame seeds, raw

1/2 c Bob’s Red Mill flax or bran meal

1-1/4 c toasted pecans ( toast at 350° for 6-8 min. or so) 

1/2 c raw wheat germ


2/3 c + 2 TBL Maple Syrup, Grade B dark 

1/3 c + 1 TBL Barley malt syrup - available from King Arthur or Amazon

1/2 c + 2 TBL coconut oil

2 TBL Light brown sugar (added to wet ingredients) 

Add to liquid after it cools slightly:

1-1/2 tsp. Vanilla paste (or vanilla extract) 

1/2 tsp. fresh nutmeg

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. table salt

Optional: scant 1/8 tsp. maple flavoring 

Mix dry ingredients well in a large bowl or pan. Combine wet ingredients in a small saucepan on low on the stove, adding vanilla and spices after removing from heat and cooling, then add the wet to the dry and mix VERY well. Divide evenly on two half sheets covered with parchment paper and bake in pre-heated oven at 300° (275° if convection) for approximately 30-40 minutes, stirring every 10 until nicely brown and crunchy. Cool well and store in airtight container. Add dried fruit if desired.

Gonna have a dandelion omelet and gonna pretend to like it whether I do or not.  Actually have tried it a couple of times, about 5 years ago.  The first time I sauted the dandelions and it was okay. The second time I forgot and it made a negative difference.  At least I hope that's what made the difference.  I hope it wasn't that I made the dandelions too soggy by rinsing them off, because after I took this picture I thoroughly rinsed them.  Draining now.  Well ... here goes .... let's try this.
