A Kick-versation to start the day off right.

I woke up at 4:30 this morning because my little boy wanted to talk. We enjoyed a very pleasant Kick-versation, that is what I decided it is called when your baby kicks and you respond with a poke or a rub and then they respond with another kick or a bump. So Butterball and I enjoyed each other's company for 15 minutes or so and then he was done. I on the other hand was wide awake. I tried to get him to play some more but that didn't work so I lay there awake in bed, thinking. I don't know about you, but thinking is a dangerous thing to do when you should be sleeping.

What was I thinking about? Jiffy Mix, or more specifically if I could make my own jiffy mix because I always seem to be running out of it. Then my mind switched to Granola. Granola is expensive and I have very simple tastes when it comes to granola, I don't like anything too fancy, no fruit needed, not too many nuts but plenty of cinnamon. So I wondered, could I make my own perfect Granola? Then I started thinking I was hungry and I remembered the Captain Crunch I bought last week. By this time it was 5 AM, that is a respectable time to eat Captain Crunch, so I got out of bed, found a pen and paper in the dark and wrote myself a note to Google recipes for Jiffy Mix and Granola, then I went downstairs and had an early morning snack.

Later this morning, after returning to bed and waking up at a better hour, I saw my note and was able to find several recipes for both the Granola and a Jiffy Mix like substance. But I am now left with a few questions for all of you. First, do any of you make a simple granola that you really like? And Second, has anyone ever made a Jiffy Mix type mix before?

There used to be some cook books called "Make a Mix" and they have all kinds of mixes. I think they are still in print.
