It’s my sister’s birthday today. (The one who lives across the street.) She’ll spend the day going to work and soccer and the usuals, and I wanted to do something small to make her day better. She adores pumpkin pie – something we don’t have in common – but she hasn’t been allowing herself to eat it over the past few months, as she’s been busy losing almost 100 pounds. I know! I’m so proud of her, and not only for that accomplishment.
She loves granola, so I thought I’d make some that tasted like pumpkin pie. A dollop of plain or vanilla yogurt could be like whipped cream almost, couldn’t it? With a drizzle of maple syrup?
I’m just now realizing that although I made it for her, it’s still sitting in my kitchen, so it will require an early morning sprint across the street in the snow if delivery is going to be made in time for breakfast.
Happy birthday Ali! We love you lots.
