Thinking about granola makes me think of this joke wrapper.

There was a whole bunch of these mock wrappers traveling around the net awhile ago. This one was my favorite.

This granola recipe might be one of the best that I have tried. No joking when it says it is easy. The maple syrup is a super nice addition.
4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick cooking)
1 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
1/4 cup shelled sunflower seeds
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup dried fruit (such as cherries, cranberries, raisins, or currants)
1. Heat oven to 350°F.
2. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the oats, almonds, coconut, and sunflower seeds with the maple syrup, oil, and salt.
3. Bake, tossing once, until golden and crisp, 25 to 30 minutes.
4. Add the dried fruit and toss to combine. Let cool.
Makes 6 cups

Heard of Gotye?
My current obsession. I have always liked the music, but I just discovered the videos today. Really weird and interesting.
Gotye (Wouter “Wally” De Backer) gets his name from “Gaultier” the French translation of “Wouter”. So, it is pronounced that way. Not “GOTCHA!” like my idiot self first thought until I heard a DJ say his name.
Coming Back kills me with its slinky drums. I feel like doing the tango every time it plays.
I’m all over that point in the song, at 4:35, where you hear the writing and Gotye says “La Composition”. How cool is that?
Definitely watch the video for Coming Back.
You can actually feel the angst in this next song.
“You didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number”
Check out Gotye and buy the music on his Website. Tour dates are also listed there, with many shows already sold out.
