My mother believes that any breakfast cereal with non-zero amounts of sugar is Pure and Uninhibited Evil. I hereby present my official recipe for Evil Granola (tm):

  • 10 cups oats
  • 3 cups coconut
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tbs cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup raisins

Mix dry ingredients together (except for raisins) then add wet ingredients and combine. Place on 2 cookie sheets and pat down. Bake at 200 degrees for eight to twelve hours -- overnight works great. The coconut should be toasted when done. Cool, mix in raisins, and store in airtight container.

(Gem and I go through about one batch of Evil Granola (tm) a week, assuming I remember to make it regularly.)

Ok, well, the most obvious problem with [new years resolution
about getting a girlfriend] is that the intended outcome relies on
variables which are out of my control. It's a matter of chance,
luck, being in the right place at the wrong time, what have you.
Obviously, it also relies on the willful participation of
another human being. Since the only people we control are
ourselves, making resolutions -- promises to ourselves -- which
require the involvement of others, who may or may not want any
part of the game, is like sitting at home and cheering a
football team, and then saying "We won! We won!" when in fact
you had absolutely nothing to do with any of it. Or something
like that.
