Wake up with a delicious granola flavored with tea and spices
I’m a recycling fiend. I may not hold any records, and I’m sure there’s room for improvement, but anything that has a recycling symbol on it, I’ll do my darn best to make sure it makes it into the can.
So, that means lots of washing out plastic and glass containers. This past weekend, things got a little out of hand. Now, I may think recycling is a critical part in helping the environment, but you probably wouldn’t guess it if you saw my bedroom. My bedroom is loaded with 25 years of memorabilia and my dresser is covered with used, empty cosmetics containers – eek – How embarrassing!
I finally took the time to tackle all those mascara tubes, lotion bottles and lip balms. It was time consuming (and there’s still more to do!) but it’s great to get them out (& hey, triad based recycling crew: if they’re not clean enough to meet inspection, please don’t toss them, I really tried to get ’em tidy!)
Also, on my cleaning list – half empty nut butter jars. Someone in my household – ahem! – leaves jars and jars in the refrigerator. For several weeks, I’ve been working on getting these out. Winston used to help with the plastic jars, but the glass ones are a little more complicated.
One thing that doesn’t get left uneaten is granola. Every week or so I make a new batch. I was solely making Chocolate Granola, which is delicious, but I decided to switch it up. This is based off one of my favorite drinks. Believe me – this is seriously the best thing you can have for breakfast.
Happy New Year! Here’s to a 2016 full of yummy treats 😉
