How do I love my Grape Nuts? Oh, let me count the ways!  

I LOVE Grape Nuts! Growing up, my dad ate them almost every day for breakfast. I thought they were gross. I don't remember when, but eventually I developed a love for them. These are my favorite ways to eat them. (In no particular order)

1. Plain
2. Drizzled with honey
3. Mixed with granola. Homemade or Breadshop's Crunchy Oat Bran are my favorites. Post thought they were doing me a favor by creating Trail Mix Crunch. I tried it. Yuck. It seemed to get soggy too quickly. And the taste wasn't the greatest either.
4. Mixed with a 4-6 oz container of fruit yogurt. Raspberry, Blackberry Pomegranate are my favorites. (add milk, then the yogurt on top)
5. Hot (with a little butter. This was in the original recipe I got off the box years ago)
6. With honey and coconut.
7. With raisins
8. With honey coconut pancake topping
9. Grape Nuts ice cream. Had this at a friend's house. Not sure what recipe they used, but I found one here.
10. With fresh strawberries
11. With fresh raspberries


Use Google Maps to send locations to your GPS!  

I stumbled upon this today while trying to figure out the latitude/longitude for a new address that was not in my map software. (Going to the new IKEA in Charlotte, NC! Woo hoo!)

Connect the GPS to your computer.
Enter the address in Google Maps
Find the pinpoint on the map (indicated by a dot with a letter - A, B, C, etc.)
Click on the dot to bring up a "pop out" balloon window

I have a Garmin eTrex Legend Hcx with Garmin City Navigator. I use this all the time - on my bike around town to track speed, distance and navigate! I use it for geocaching and driving directions in the car as well.
