Rainy day project
It is a rainy San Pedro Sunday morning – perfect baking weather so I decided to make granola. Oats are very cheap here – I paid $6.75 for a 2lb container at Twin Supermarket on St Thomas St. near Municipal Airport. Coconut was $6.89 and raisins $4.09 – both purchased at Save U. When I looked it up the recipe’s I found said to use slow cook oats and not the quick kind. Unfortunately I had already bought the fast cooking ones on my Belize City shopping trip so I decided to wing it.
I also added in maple syrup – coconut oil – shredded coconut and raisins. If it works out well I will get fancier and add some nuts and dried fruit next time around.
So far so good homemade granola passed the tacoboy taste test. Will see if Cindy and Maureen give it a pass as well – gave them both some to try.
A bit of sad news this morning on San Pedro Sun today there was a big at fire at Neri’s tacos late last night. The smoke was visible from our veranda which is 1.5 miles south of there. Neri’s was a favorite place for delicious cheap Belize food to many and will be missed. Condolences to all those who were affected by the fire.
