2 c old fashioned rolled oats
1c shredded coconut
3/4c raw pumpkin seeds
3/4 c walnuts
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 c veg oil
1/8 c honey
1/8 c molasses
2 TB ground flax seeds
1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries
1/2 c chopped apricots
1tb sesame oil (unrefined not toasted)
preheat oven 350
combine oats, nuts, salt, seeds and coconut in large bowl
whisk oil, honey, and molasses in a separate bowl pour over and toss to coat all your oats.

~I am very excited about this new apron skirt. Which is basically two gathered waist aprons sewn front to back with a wide waist band that ties in a big bow. There is a small opening that has snap closure. The skirt uses enough fabric that a sheer lawn cotton is perfect and I love using a small print calico for the waist and a larger floral for the skirt. It really is the perfect skirt to hit the dance hall in and HonkyTonk.....
