Rainy Monday evening

The weather being so crappy today, I stayed in after getting home from work and was mega productive! Made lunch for the next couple days (quinoa & french lentil salad with sauteed cauliflower), brewed myself a jug of rooibus iced tea, shopped online for a new rear cassette to supplement Matthew's Sunday afternoon labor on my bike, and baked up a batch of granola. Sometime this week I'll start on the BEER!

sounds great, but what is this a picture of? granola?

Well it's not quinoa salad, iced tea, bike parts, or beer, so yes bingo! It's granola! From a recipe my fellow CSA core member Laura gave me.

Which beer do you have? I have a kit from them too, alas Spring Break went so fast that I haven't made mine yet.

Julia said...

I've got the Bel-Gin Strong mix. And plans to start brewing this weekend! You? I'll let you know how it goes, and will share whatever nuggets of wisdom I pick up that might help you avoid the missteps I'm sure to make.

Chestnut Brown. I sense a beer party forthcoming! I'm leaving for a conference today, but hope to start mine next week!

Julia said...

Ooh yeah have fun on your trip, and let's compare brewing notes upon your return!

By the way y'all, on an unrelated side note, just thought I'd mention that the table cloth in this photo was hand embroidered by my grandfather (the Austrian one of course)!
