Regrowing onions and Goji berries are ripe!

I mentioned that you can regrow onions from the cut off end.  Here's one that we've started. 

Just cut the end off where the roots were and put it in water.  Soon you'll see little green stalks sprouting out.  Eventually you'll need to plant it.

Our Goji berries are starting to ripen!  I'm not so sure I'm going to like these...Mr Eclecic tried one and said it tasted kind of like a tomato.  I am not big on eating tomatoes just by themselves.  They make great sauce, but picking one and eating one...ick.

Here are ripe Gojis.

I've been meaning to post this too, but I forgot, so here it is:

The simplest easiest yummy oatmeal cookie crumble thingy.

I can't give you exact measurements because I don't measure anything when I do this, sorry.  But it's easy anyway!

Rolled oats.  About 2-3 cups
Dark and white chocolate chips.  About 1/4 package each.  You can use whatever kind of chocolate you want, or even leave it out.  I like it to add some sweetness to the cranberries.
Cranberries.  About 1/2 package.  I also threw in some raspberries and blueberries from our garden.  I'd say you could use whatever berries you'd like.
About a teaspoon of Vanilla.
Brown Sugar.  About 1/8 cup.  Really, really little.
Coconut oil, melted.  About a table spoon.  Just a bit.

Mix everything then add just enough milk to moisten it and get it stuck together.  Spread onto a cookie sheet.  If you don't want it super crunchy you won't need to grease it.  If you want it crunchy, grease it!!  I spread it just about the thickness of the cranberries.  For less crispy, it bakes in our gas oven from cold (not preheated) for about 25 minutes on 350.  We just made it pretty crispy in a preheated oven at 400 for 20 minutes.  Makes for a great breakfast to take to work or as a snack.
