Technology and Granola Bar Blues

I have a really ancient computer. So old that the operating system (Windows ME) is no longer supported by most applications. When I go to download pictures from my camera, I can't use the software that came with the camera for this purpose - I have to cut and paste when the camera is connected as an outside storage device. Sometimes this doen't even work - sometimes the computer does not recognize the camera as an additional drive. I have no idea why it works sometimes and not others.



Anyway, today it decided to work so I have some pictures. I was trying to make granola bars since my kids like to take them for snack at school. The good ones (i.e. healthier versions) are $4.29 for a box of six. As you can imagine, this adds up pretty fast for three kids. Sadly, the healthy version of commercial foods are always more expensive than the cheap crap with so many ingredients I can't even read the label. I was excited to find this recipe because it had lots of good stuff and no added oil (fat came from almond butter). Don't they look good in the pan?



Then I took them out.......









Now my kids have some yummy granola for breakfast! (Is it wrong to feed your kids cereal with chocolate chips?)



Look at my messy fridge......that is because we have my food, his food, and their food..............





And here is a picture of my little bakers (non-vegan cupcakes supervised by the Carnivore, but I think it's nice that he bakes with his little girls).

OMG your little girls are so adorable!! They probably didn't even need to use sugar for those cupcakes, they just stood next to the batter and sweetened it up with their own sweetness!

The granola looks awesome! You gotta have chocolate chips! :)
