There's something a knitting lady needs while commuting, something every finnish kid sew at the school in the 80's: a simple pouch for keeping one's handicraft. This fifteen-minutes-project was on my list on Tuesday and I'm happy with the results. Now I get to keep a few of my favorite fabrics with me while taking the bus for work and hopefully knitting. However, you might as well find me just staring half-a-sleep through the bus window and dreaming of things like knitting or sewing.
Maybe a healthy diet will take me through early mornings. Last weekend after being inspired by Nigella Lawson's show, I made my first attempt of making my own granola. The original recipe is here in English and here in Finnish. I didn't have all the ingredients waiting in the cupboard, so I improvised a bit putting almonds and other nuts instead of peanuts, using normal brown sugar and dark syrup instead of fancier muscovado sugar and rice syrup. I guess the results were OK also after my own twist to the recipe, because my husband has been faithfully eating the granola whole week through with yogurt. This was certainly easier than I thought and by making your own granola you know exactly what's hiding in it. So give this recipe or some other a go!
