Taking a break from the road means all sorts of advantages for us.
With a full-sized oven, we can make huge batches of Alton Brown’s Homemade Granola.
Revisiting favorite bric-a-brac brings back good memories.
and we eat really, really well because we have a huge fridge, freezer and pantry to store lots of good eats
All this cooking and lounging around is gonna make us fat.
Good thing there’s lot of manual labor to be done around here!

Hey, what’re you doing with all of those rocks?
We gots to entertain ourselves somehow up in them thar mountains… and keep fit, in case the bars attack!
Hi! Just found your site and am looking forward to digging around in the archives. I’ve never tried Alton Brown’s granola. Thanks for sharing the link.
I make granola at home, too. It’s super good. Here’s my recipe.
it`ll never replace “huevos rancheros” !!
Alton Brown’s Homemade Granola is excellent! Living the dream on the homestead I see…work, eat, lounge around….fun times looks like you’re having.
Weather looks nice…… short sleeves even…
Thanks for the granola R.
I too enjoy bric-brac…. most of it acquired while on the road…
Yeah, it’s in the low 70s. Perfect! About that recipe; we modify it a bit and add fixin’s like flax seed, cranberries (add after it’s baked and still warm) and puffed rice/corn cereal. Yum!
Forgot to mention we have a ton of projects going on here too. We have someone coming to paint the top of the house starting tomorrow. Sam and I then need to get to work replacing the chinking between the logs. It’s way too hot to do anything.
And scorpion hunting too, Kim! Take it easy, that’s what summer’s all about.
Thanks for the link to the granola recipe! All I need now is my oven to be put in!
I guess sitting on our butts working on our laptops all day is now considered “lounging” … I better go move some more rocks.
