Well it is that time of year again. Baseball season. We have season tickets to the local team and when baseball season starts it feels like summer is here. Even if the games we attend for the next few weeks will mean a lot of layering and even more hot chocolate to keep us warm, just knowing it is baseball season means camping, the beach, and picnics are right around the corner. With baseball season though comes a lot of preparation for a family of four (two of which are under six) to attend the games. The games start at 7 o'clock and parking is at a premium. So if you want to get one of the few free parking spots a person should at the game somewhere in the vicinity of 6:15. Since the park is 20-30 minute drive from our house, depending on traffic, this doesn't leave a whole lot of time for dinner.
Fruit and Pecan Granola Bars. Yummy! Super easy to make (I bet you have the ingredients in your house right now) and can easily be converted to gluten free, just substitute the 1 tablespoon of flour for a gluten free alternative. I changed the sugar to 1/2 cup instead of a cup and they are plenty sweet.
The only drawback? The kids love them.....guess I'll have to double up my batches :)
