Thursday Tidbits

*Hubby had a last minute opportunity to travel to St. Louis on Monday for the Cardinals playoff game vs Washington...yeah, this momma wasn't jealous at all!  He had a great time & saw a great win, if only the Cards can pull of 12 in '12!

*We've got a little girl who's a little out of sorts this week.  We're blaming it on some new teeth probably trying to bust through, and a little bit of small fall allergies.  She is going hoarse & it's just pitiful to listen to her talk, cry, or laugh as I know her throat must be hurting her.  I hope she feels better soon...after 3 weeks of sleeping completely through the night, last night was not a fun experience!  

*I've been drinking some really fresh, super yummy, totally local Apple Cider this week...hot or cold, I love it!  It's my first gallon of the fall & I think I need to buy another gallon very soon!
And can you see the ingredients down there right above the barcode?  Contents:  Apples...& nothing else.  Just the way it should be. 
*I made my first batch of chili yesterday...Mmmmm....I always long for the first batch of chili in the fall much like I long for the first opportunity for hamburgers & french fries in the spring.  I even made a double match so I could freeze half for another day.

*And in other food news, I had my first attempt at homemade granola yesterday to use for yogurt parfaits, breakfast, and just a good healthy snack.  It tastes wonderful but isn't quite as crunchy as I would like...any recommendations for a yummy, crunchy, homemade granola?
