Ah September. It’s finally Fall. It no longer feels like you’re going to melt when you go outside. And sweatpants are finally comfortable again. Oh, and school is back in session.
This past Thursday was Report Card Night at school, which means that we had a half day before having to come back to meet with parents in the evening. Whenever this happens, a group of teachers uses it as an excuse to go out for lunch. This time, we decided on Red Robin (mostly because I was in the mood for a burger). Two of us got there a little early and were starving, so we ordered an appetizer of pretzel bites while we waited for our friends to arrive.
My boyfriend was visiting for the weekend again this weekend, and earlier this week he sent me a link for a whole wheat biscuit recipe he wanted to try, asking if it would work for my blog. I love biscuits, but I also love sweets, so we compromised and made them into chocolate biscuits. Unlike my other recipes, these are actually pretty good for you (no butter!), but probably not in the quantity we decided to eat them.
To preface this post, Yale Bake Shop Granola is hands down the best granola known to man. It has brown sugar, it has salt, it has raisins, it has large chunks that could pass as granola bars on their own if you take the time to sift through it. If you’ve ever seen me in the Calhoun dining hall, you know that I can eat the stuff by the bucketful. It tastes good in alone, in milk, mixed with milk and peanut butter and small pieces of banana and chocolate sauce… Unfortunately, I graduated already and no longer have access …
