On a different note, a recipe later in the week calls for fresh figs. I went to several grocery stores and markets today, but have not been able to find these anywhere. Apparently, Fresh Market typically has them but they are out and don't know when they will get any more. So if anyone happens to know where I can find some fresh figs in Memphis, please let me know.
Also today, I made some healthy homemade granola bars to help Carmen out with her sweets craving. We used to make these quite often, but haven't in a while. It's a simple recipe that we tweak a little every time we make it. This time I used 3 cups of oats, 1/2 cup of honey, 1/4 cup of almonds, 1/2 cup of peanut butter, 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, 1/4 cup of raisins & a little maple syrup. You just mix it all up and bake it at 350 for about 20 minutes. It ends up being a sweet and healthy treat.
