make it yourself

I'm on this frugal and healthy high, y'all. I'd say I feel like a pioneer woman, in the generic sense, but that would make you think of Mrs. Ree herself. And never will I be on that level.

All I've done is make my own granola and Febreeze. But that's a start, right?!

I took an unplanned nap on Sunday afternoon which made it impossible to sleep the entirety of the following night. So, at 4:15 Monday morning, I decided I needed a project. The make-your-own Febreeze was the easiest process ever, so I needed another project by 4:22. But it was a success! Follow the link, make your own, and save you bundle.

As for the granola, I used this basic granola recipe to create my own. I am so very happy with how it turned out. The recipe is below, but feel free to half it if you don't need enough granola to survive the apocalypse.

MJ's Favorite Granola

8 cups rolled oats
1 cup wheat germ
1 cup sliced almonds
1 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 cup olive oil
3/4 cup honey
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix every ingredient in the largest mixing bowl you've ever seen. Spread half the mixture on a cookie sheet [I used a silicone baking mat]. Bake for 25 minutes or longer if you want it a little more crunchy [but don't let it burn!] and stir every 7-10 minutes. And then do it again with the second batch. Enjoy it on nearly anything!
