Do you think that I could find a way to get him to show up at my house? Pants are optional. Should we give him your address? Why do people talk about going away!!!! It's so stupid. Hey, guess who is going to Vegas???? I'll be gone for about a week. Enjoy the silence!!!

Anywho, I found an interesting read about "11 Surprisingly Affordable Healthy Foods You should have in Your Pantry." Not to brag but I have all but one in our stash. I have instant and regular rice but no brown rice so can I have a half point for the white and instant?
What is your go to cheap meal? I like to start with a box of noodles and see what I can make using them. We keep frozen chili and spaghetti so that is an easy meal. I'm also not above throwing some chopped up pepperoni, whatever veg we have on hand and some Italian dressing in a bowl and calling it dinner.

I think that it is the granola season. Or would it be use up whatever is in the cabinet season? Or the broke season? I'm not sure but it seems that everyone is involved in this little season. Jane from Crabapple Landing was part of my inspiration. Check out her kitties, I mean nachos, no, really her granola. It is safe to say that her granola is prettier than mine. And since I wanted to use up some really expired honey and nuts, I had to punt a bit like Anne in the kitchen. And it is safe to say that she is a better punter than I am.
Here is the original recipe.......
4 cups oatmeal 3/4 cup pecans 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 cup shredded coconut 3 tablespoons butter 3 tablespoons oil 1/4 cup honey(spray the measuring cup with Pam and it will slide right out) 2 tablespoons sugar 5 teaspoons vanilla Preheat oven to 325 and adjust racks to the middle. Spray 2 9x13 pans with Pam. Mix first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Combine butter, oil, honey and sugar in a sauce pan and heat until melted, add vanilla. Pour the liquid over the oat mixture and stir well. Spread on sheets. Bake until golden brown 15-20 minutes.
I was out of my element by winging it. I mixed the oatmeal, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a bowl and then realized I didn't have shredded coconut. I found some dehydrated coconut and grated it and my finger nail. Then threw that in minus the chunk of nail.
I then combined butter, oil, honey/nut mess and sugar. Only to realize there wasn't enough honey and squirted a gob in there and added the vanilla because I can't read directions.
I then added all of the dry ingredients and baked the snot out of it.

The boys adore DJ. He has crazy little minions.
It was pretty late on Friday night by the time everyone got back to the hotel. We went to Lone Star to eat and then crashed.
The boys loved the waterfall. It was perfect out and we walked for hours and hours and HOURS. We walked 4.4 miles just at the college. I gained 4 lbs this weekend. Hmmmm, can I unwalk the miles and give back the 4 lbs?
Jim Davis went to Ball State so there is plenty of Garfield tributes around the college and town. David Letterman went to Ball State too but I've yet to see a statue.
We made a quick run to Walmart to get DJ and his roommate supplies and found the most awesome display ever. I was trying to find a way to sneak the millennium falcon out of the store. I mean, we need this!!!! I was more than willing to tie it to the top of the car and drive home with it.
Saturday night, we left DJ in charge of the boys(poor kid) and we went to the casino. We all lost but Den, Cindy, Chris and I got pretty shitfaced. Like bad. Who knew? My poor inlaws were the DDs. Den and I went with Donna and before we got home we decided we needed Taco Bell. Yum.
This was the picture text to us of Chris when he received his tacos.
And my sister in law was just as stoked. It was after 3am when we went to bed.
We left Sunday and I didn't take one picture. That was partly because I was tired and partly because I didn't want to leave the fun.
We are now recovering and doing laundry. I think we are going to have to plan another trip like this one but I think that our fun will be over when DJ turns 21 and can go to the casino with us. We will lose our free babysitter.
