Honey Nut Granola

by Sharon on January 18, 2016

Honey Nut Granola

This recipe is for Honey Nut Granola, but the post will be about music. I did write a post about music once before, in the very early days when I posted e-v-er-y day (still can’t believe I managed that), after seeing the Killers play Toronto.

I more than love music. It’s like a need. As someone who walks practically everywhere, my headphones are always close. There are specific playlists designed for various activities. Walking has one, cleaning has one, the gym of course. Back when I used to run, the music was key. My running playlist consisted of songs with a beat that mimicked my stride. So important. I could not run without music.

So, in case you live under a rock, you most likely know about the passing of David Bowie last week. When Joe told me the news, I felt complete shock, then numbness and disbelief. Is it strange to feel that way about a person you ‘technically’ don’t know? The flood of emotions on social media showed me I wasn’t alone.

Honey Nut Granola

I grew up with David Bowie. My oldest brother was a huge influence on the music I was exposed to. As a religious family we weren’t allowed secular music in our house. That means no rock and roll, folks. 😉 As my brother got older, he of course rebelled on that rule and I benefitted from that rebellion. Through the vents in our house and my lucky location above my brother’s room, I was exposed to U2, The Cult, Simple Minds, and of course, Bowie.

No one was cooler than David Bowie. Brave, uninhibited, totally different and completely brilliant. His catalogue of classic hits are endless. Any 80’s kid will remember the movie The Breakfast Club with the iconic quote from his song Changes. I had it memorized. “And these children that you spit on, as they try to change their worlds, are immune to your consultations. They’re quite aware of what they’re going through.”

Cha-cha-changes.

Anyways, my whole point to this post, besides a kick ass Honey Nut Granola recipe, is to encourage you to listen to some music. Throw on those songs you used to sing along to, shake your booty to, do whatever you do to. 😉

Music is therapeutic and can send you to another a place and time. Whenever I hear Changes or Let’s Dance, I’m a eight year old dancing with my sister in the TV room. If Green Day comes on, I’m 19 and jumping up and down on my couch with my BFF in our first apartment.

Music has magic in it.

Thanks to David Bowie for sharing his magic with us.

Oh, and the granola is a hit also. :)

Enjoy!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve shared another oatmeal cookie recipe back in the early days of the Honour System that was a gluten free, flourless variety. This one is not. It has flour (sprouted grain, though 😉 ), it has butter, it has eggs. Think of it as an old school oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe with a healthier, […]

One of the nice things about the dreary fall weather is the return of warm soups and comforting stews. And by one of the nice things, I mean the only nice thing. 😉 Let’s just say it was a good thing we ‘geared up’ for the rain with waterproof boots and hooded raincoats, because it […]

I knew which aisle had what and wrote out my shopping list accordingly. Joe had his half, I had mine […]
