Goodbye Old School

Today was my last day working at Old School. I still feel like I'll be returning there in August. I packed up my classroom and cleaned out my desk. I even took home the coffee pot. It just somehow feels like a normal school year ending. I will miss the friends that I've made at OS and I hope that we all stay in touch. I've grown so much in the last five years and I hope that New School will be even better.

Last day snack...

Vanilla Almond Granola
Oven: 300
vegetable oil cooking spray
4 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup golden brown sugar, packed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup craisins

Spray baking sheet with nonstick spray. Mix oats, almonds, brown sugar, salt, and ground cinnamon, and craisins in a large bowl.

Mix oil, honey, and sugar in saucepan on medium heat. Bring to a simmer, remove from heat, and mix in vanilla.

Pour over oat mixture and mix well. Spread granola on baking sheet and place in oven for 30 minutes. You can stir occasionally, while baking, if you prefer. I like to wait and separate after baking. Cool completely.
