The First Day of Spring

Today is the first day of Spring! We spent the day in Astoria with our friend Carolyn. It was great to see her. She got to see all of Astoria today. We started our day at Meli Cafe. Then, we walked from the apartment to the river where we visited Socrates Sculpture Park and Rainey Park. Afterwards, we went back to Steinway and had some Red Mango. After that we decided to go pick out a movie for our friend who is on an Air Force base in VA, so we went to Blockbuster on Broadway. On our way back, we stopped at Y & Y Organics and Brooklyn Bagel. On one of Carolyn's first visits we had Cinnamon Raisin bagels with Walnut Raisin Cream Cheese. THEY ARE SOME OF THE BEST BAGELS AROUND!

While at Y & Y, I got some Agave Nectar to make some granola. It came out super yummy and made the apartment smell great.

Granola Recipe

4 cups - Quick Oats
4 oz - Agave Nectar
2 tbsp - Ground Cinnamon
1/3 cup - Canola Oil
2 cups - Raisins

Heat oven to 350. Mix Quick Oats and Canola Oil in a large bowl. Add nectar and cinnamon to taste. Place oats mixture on a baking sheet. Bake until oats are toasty brown. Stir once. Add raisins after baking. Store in a sealed container.
