This Friday, May 13th, 2011, Steph’s Bite by Bite is hosting an online bake sale to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I can’t wait to participate in an online bake sale! I’ve never done anything like this before but it is the second time Steph has hosted a bake sale on her site. I’m donating Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies (one of my favorites). Tons of awesome bakers are involved, so get pumped! Steph’s last bake sale earned $1,707 – let’s see if we can up the ante for round two!

Now on to breakfast week, day two! I love granola as a snack at any time of the day, but waking up to a quick and delicious bite of granola really makes me feel like I’m doing something good for myself.

Not sure if that’s true or not – but granola is packed with oats, nuts, wheat germ, peanut butter and deliciousness. It can’t possibly be bad for you, right? Granola makes the perfect breakfast. Not too heavy, not too sweet, this little girl thinks it’s juuust right.

I’d been craving granola since I realized Handsome was never really going to finish that box of cereal he had to have and it had been left to taunt me from the counter. I moved it every time I needed to toast a piece of bread, reminding myself that I would soon turn it into something delicious. Every time I needed to reheat leftover pizza, I craved the crunch of home made chewy granola bars.

I’m not sure what kept me from spending five minutes in the kitchen to make this pantry lover’s granola, but I’m so happy that I finally have it here to munch on.

From now on, I promise to keep granola in my house at all times – we’re never really going to finish any box of cereal otherwise.

What’s your perfect weekday breakfast?
