What's on the Menu Monday

Okay girls (and guys if you wish)....i am declaring What's on the Menu Monday's. Every monday if you wish, post your fav recipe, preferably one that you cook often, your family enjoys. My hope is that we can be a great encouragement to one another "to provide food for her household" prov. 31:15, that we can excite eachother to feed our families in healthy and affordable ways and that our pallets will be satisfied along the way!
The first Item on the Menu is a family fav. As soon as it runs out, I make more...its amazing...enjoy!

Homemade Granola
(this recipe is from a small B&B in the hill country and as you will find out in the monday's to come, i have added and taken away in order to make it mine...hehe!)

4 1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2cup walnuts (we use pecans) chopped
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup cashew, pieces
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
3/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups dried cranberries
Cinnamon to taste

Place first 6 ingredients in bowl and mix well.
Mix together syrup, honey, canola, vanilla and pour over dry ingredients and stir until covered
Place in large shallow pan (i use a large casserole dish, my aunt uses a deep cookie sheet) and lightly cover with cinnamon and bake at 350 for 50min stirring every 10 mins. Each time you stir lightly cover with Cinnamon again.
Cool and add cranberries. Keep in fridge in air tight container up to two weeks.
This is great for breakfast with milk, a handful dry for a snack or on yogurt or ice cream for dessert!
ENJOY!
