Sar’s Farm Party

Earlier this season, shortly after my return from WI, my sister hosted the most scrumptious of parties. Like me, she worked on a CSA farm over the summer, but did what is called a worker’s share. Rather than paying for a CSA share she worked for it. While I was off WWOOFing in WI, Sar worked on a tiny farm in our county and met some pretty neat people, so to celebrate the closing of a season and for “just becauses” she made up dozens of her signature Spancy Bakes style pizza crusts with a la carte toppings. (She kindly made gluten free crusts for a couple of us non wheat eaters :) Paired with a Katherine inspired salad and lots of laughter, the night was a success!

Frank’s Finest Autumn Dessert Spice granola

So far I’ve been away more this month than I’ve been home. Now that the crazy traveling has slowed for a while I’m enjoying this season and looking forward to plans in the future. I really can’t believe October is wrapping up, which means I graduate in less than two months! I get asked all the time what I plan to do when I graduate, and so far I don’t know. The thought of a free schedule and more time to invest in freelance and this blog are first on my agenda. Beyond that life will be considered prayerfully one step at a time. If I had to guess though it will probably include trip(s) to Wisconsin :)

Now for this recipe.! I’ve posted several recipes using Frank’s Finest spice blends, because they are perfect. I don’t have to guess or play scientist to get the flavor just right. The spice blends are perfect just as they are, which is why this granola was quite the hit. It’s the perfect fall treat!
