Oh well, spring break is over and it’s time to get back on a regular schedule.  With all the going’s on we had around here last week, my fridge and pantry were almost empty, so yesterday I had to sit down and make a plan for restocking.  I also made a list of recipes to try, healthy snacks to munch on and items for the boys lunch bags.  Here’s one of the snacks I decided on ~ Granola.  Big Sweetie and I love to have granola for breakfast, with low fat milk and also on yogurt.  It’s also a great “to-go” snack when you need a little something while running around.  This recipe is really, really easy and I actually had everything on hand!
