breakfast on Uproar
20 November 2018
I tried to take a picture of Lisa making her famous granola. She ducked out of the picture saying she wasn't dressed for a picture. Debatable, she wasn't dressed at all!
Breakfast on Uproar has evolved over the years. We don't carry milk on board and boxes of cereal are not often available. Plus, they take up a lot of storage and are expensive!!!
Eggs are available everywhere. Lisa doesn't often eat eggs for breakfast but sure makes some nice over-easy eggs for me with leftovers. Great, hearty breakfast.
But our staple is yogurt and granola. Cindy from Zensations showed Lisa how to make yogurt from powdered milk. Cheap and simple. But when good grocery stores are available, we buy yogurt.
Lisa makes the granola from whatever seeds, nuts, dried fruit, and some oatmeal she can find. She makes a very rich, sead-nut mix with very little oatmeal.
This is quite a process and takes hours. She mixes the ingredients in a huge vat with honey, coconut oil, vanilla extract (we make from rum and vanilla beans), and some water. She bakes the mixture in pans mixing occasionally. It takes four batches of baking to complete the process. When cooled the granola goes into lock-n-lock containers.
This makes enough for 3 or 4 months. The granola/yogurt mix and green, Jazmine tea are often accompanied with our morning music mix: Johnny Cash, Nora Jones and Carol King and always beautiful scenery!
