4 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1 cup sliced almonds (I used chopped up whole ones)
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup unsalted pepitas (I used sunflower seeds)
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
2 T canola oil
1/2 kosher salt
1 cup dried fruit (I used craisans.)
1. Heat oven to 350F. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the oats, almonds, coconut, and nuts with the maple syrup, oil and salt.
2. Bake, tossing once, until golden and crisp, 25 to 35 minutes.
3. Add the dried fruit and toss to combine. Let cool.
TIP: the granola will keep in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for up to 3 weeks.

I had to take a photo of this attendee since his chain mail was made of Bud Light cans. I just laughed when I saw it!

A few weeks ago, the neighbors also gave me a jar of "friendship" soup. It was really good! I used the soup mix and added a bunch of veggies including carrots, celery, beans, onions and cabbage. It was really good!
