I have been called a 'granola'. But the truth is, I am simply a granola wannabe...a lazy granola...granolaesque.
I checked out the definition of a granola in The Urban Dictionary. According to that website, these are some of the qualities of a granola:
- open-minded, left-winged
- environmentally and socially aware
- usually refrains from consuming or using anything containing animals and animal by-products (for health and/or environmental reasons)
- usually concerned about wasting resources
Check, check, check on all except the consumption of animals.
I am an advocate of consuming animals and animal by-products! In fact, I am pretty sure I consume more than my fair share! BUT, I am also an advocate of not wasting animals and by-products; I promote using every part of an animal from its bones to its hide. And what I can't use should go to some other animal (like my dog!), instead of the dump. Granolaesque. I'm ok with that.
Yesterday I made granola bars. I have only made them a few times but they are really great. I cut up what we didn't need yesterday and froze them for lunches. It is an easy recipe and reeeeally yummy!!
