    No, not for supper. But I have it for breakfast on my plain wheat flakes, or for lunch in plain yogurt, sometimes with a spoon of jam mixed in.

    In a LARGE metal mixing bowl, combine
    2.5 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
    2.5 cups some combination of the following:
      chopped nuts, raisins, dried cranberries, flake coconut
    (I don't measure any of this precisely.)

    Melt 4 tablespoons of butter and stir in 3-4 tablespoons honey and one big fat tablespoon of cinnamon, more or less to taste.

    Pour the butter over the dry ingredients and stir to coat.

    Heat your oven to 250. Push the granola against the sides of the mixing bowl and put it in the oven. After 15 minutes or so, turn OFF the oven and stir the granola. Put the bowl back in and just let it enjoy the heat in the oven while it cools off.

    Store in an air tight container.

    Guess what -- it makes about 5 cups.

    Tell the people you love that you love them when you can. You don't always get another chance.
