Mixed-bag of Treats

Rome starts again this Sunday. This actor is definitely the poor man’s Daniel Craig . Or is DC the poor man’s this guy?

Yoga’s power couple, born of a small yogic scandal, Rodney and Colleen, are now official.

A GF Granola recipe that I’m gonna make nut-free. Maybe with PB or Enjoy life chocolate chips. Will keep you posted.
The New York Times’ Crunchy Granola
Ingredients: (for 8 cups, at least 16 servings)
6 cups rolled oats (not quick-cooking or instant)
2 cups mixed nuts and seeds: sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, chopped walnuts, pecans, almonds or cashews [optional, I omitted]
1 cup dried unsweetened shredded coconut (optional- I omitted)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Dash salt
½ to 1 cup honey or maple syrup, or to taste
1 cup raisins or chopped dried fruit, optional
1. Preheat oven to 350. Combine all of the ingredients EXCEPT dried fruit. Place on a sheet pan and put in oven. Bake for 30 minutes or a little longer, stirring occasionally. Mixture should brown evenly; the browner it gets without burning, the crunchier the granola will be.
2. Remove pan from oven and add raisins or dried fruit. Cool on a rack, stirring once in a while until granola reaches room temperature. Transfer to a sealed container and store in refrigerator; it will keep indefinitely.
Yield: About 8 cups

Polenta lasagna from Ms. Bay that I’m making this weekend. Can’t wait! PS Made it tonight with spinach and fresh mozz, some lactaid pills on the side, and homemade tomato sauce. A bit wet--I wonder if the polenta released water whilst cooking--but it tasted delish nonetheless.

An Ode to the NY Bagel . H&H still rules.

Hey, I roll like that too! Ah Colson, really, we were meant to be.

Craftsteak fired the Chef AKA the Fall Guy. I still wouldn’t go back, not after that last dinner we had.

Why no one is more outraged about filth in food.

Go sustainable !

think it was your spinach which released water ... polenta becomes a thickened mass, quite free from liquid. sounds quite appetizing with the mozzarella!!
