Test 2

Follow Up Test

With the downloading of an app called Google Docs, we shall now try posting with pictures.  
Chewy Granola Bars
Taken by hi-jacked iPad of course!  Yum!

Hooray!  Posting success! Trying now an update.....
This App was necessary to complete photo posting on blog as well as to provide proper writing phrasing(notice how the first test post ran all together though it had looked like separated paragraphs on the editing screen). 

Unlike blogging difficulties I have been encountering, these bars are simple to make and have been the favorite thus far in our recipe experiments. All you need to do is add what you like, bake in 9x13 parchment paper lined pan for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees, cut up and enjoy!
3 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup sunflower seeds(or mini chocolate chips,coconut,etc)
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1 cup mixed nuts
1 cup dried cranberries,cherries,blueberries,etc
1-14oz can sweetened condensed milk

Test Post

It has again been an eternity since a new post and I must admit I miss do my kids. During regular posting, we were able to save glimpses of our crazy, chaotic, but wonderfully full lives. These have been so much fun to look back on to visit the often simpler days, as well as to see how much things have changed and grown around here. While I have so many things I have missed in the blank middle of time, it is precisely these things that have required my full attention. My needing to be fully present in those moments in order not to miss a beat into the memory of my heart. I fully intend to someday recap these beautiful times ( such as the graduation of our firstborn over a year ago and living without him for the past year as he was away at college, our collection of baby turtles, and finally taking the big plunge of home schooling ALL the kids last year). But for now, I am tired after a full day at the polo field for the Freedom Farm fundraiser, and will be waking up quite early for another full day of baseball games as Jonathan's team is enjoying a winning streak. So for now, for my very own Daddy, I am testing the ease of blogging from an iPad that has been sitting unused for nearly one year which I just may have hi-jacked from my husband(if he ever notices it is missing, I'll give it back, I promise!). Results so far are amazingly positive! Love the super-quick auto-spell-correction. It is coming in handy quite a bit this late at night:) These are two of our recent very favorite things among all of us at our house: Homemade Chewy Granola Bars Homemade Yogurt Ooooo...bummer. iPad blogging fail. Can not get photos into blog from photos? I have an idea......will be back soon....
