K.I.S.S and plus easy to eat on the go at work in a van.. I came across this quick recipe that I could whip up and eat on the go plus doesn't have to be HEATED UP.. Very tasty plus I usually have everything in the house except the Limes..EZ to add to the shopping list..I also plan to add shredded or diced chicken to this mix as well..
I wanted to have my snacks for my lunches but I didn't want to have to package these daily or rush trying to get them together before walking out the door before work at 245 am. So I decided to only by enough snacks for 4 days worth of snacks and then baggie them up into a box in the cabinet..Takes me 2 seconds to grab out and drop into my lunch box...K.I.S.S.
I surfed the web and found this recipe hoping I might like with a few tweaks for things I prefer in a bar. THESE were better then just good they are a keeper for sure recipe.. I can't get enough of this granola bars.. I have already made a second batch with a few extra ingredients I used oatmeal/cranberries/strawberries/blueberries/cherries/pumpkin seeds/pecans/macadamia nuts/flax seed/sunflower seeds/10 grain mix

I came across a little crochet flappy girl hat pattern however I didn't want the extra ribbon on the hat so I used just the shell stitch part and added that to the hat pattern I had already been using (combining 2 hat patterns yet again :O))the top part of the hat uses this pattern concept however I changed how this hat is done as well I do it in the round to remove that joining seam most hats get then I decrease from DC to Half DC 2 rows then to SC 2 rows then finish off...excuse the water bottle hat stand as I was a work when I took the picture and gave the hat to my boss for his granddaughter..

Along the way while making these hats I made a few changes from rows w/ joins stitch to round (done in a spiral w/ DC to Half DC to SC to finish off to remove that crazy seam that gets created ) and the hooks I have been using along with a few new pictures using the Beanie pattern...Love this pattern can't wait for winter to get here in Phoenix so I can start donating them..Man I have been using up my yarn stash like crazy...
G Hook- Newborn
I Hook- 2- 4 years oldJ Hook- Older Kids
K Hook- Adult Women
L Hook- Adult Men
This is my fave one so far!!!
This was a newborn hat done following the original pattern I find the original pattern doesn't stretch as much as I found doing it in the round spiral :O)
The hat was done in the round!!! it's a little bit bigger and stretches nicely..
