Great Granola

I tried Jamie Oliver’s home made muesli the other day. I’ve never tried making it myself but it was both rather quick and above all very easy.

Here’s my version of his version ( I make a double batch, or else it’ll be eaten in just 3 days…)

Begin with

- 400 g oatmeal

- 150 g of almond (becomes fantastic when roasted)

- 100 g seeds (50 pumpkin/50 sunflower)

- 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon

- 3-4 tablespoons honey or maple syrup

- drizzles of canola oil

Combine the above dry ingredients and spread in two oven trays. Drizzle honey/syrup and oil, mix well and put trays in the middle of the oven 175C. Let sit for 25 min and stir the mixture every 5 minutes. Don’t leave the kitchen, the mix will burn easily. Meanwhile chop dried fruit.

Afterwards add:

200 g chopped dried fruits of your choice. I like cranberries, dates and apricots.

Other suggestions: raisins, figs.


Add the fruit to the mix then it’s out of the oven and let everything cool. Store in airtight containers for up to 2 weeks. Serve with ice cold milk/yoghurt/sour milk.

    There are many types of tiles available nowadays. The method of tile cleaning will depend more on the tile
    type. However there are couple of things to be followed to add the
    sheen and glow of the tiles.

    Do the regular floor cleaning
    Clean the spills as soon as they occur

    It is very crucial to clean dirt and water too as soon as they are split
    to prevent the stains. Place a doormat which helps in reduction of mud or dirt entering through footsteps.

    There are basically following tile floors where in one will use the tile
    and grout cleaning process, types of tiles are as follow -


    Porcelain Tile cleaning

    Porcelain tiles maintenance is not difficult if the surface is cleaned
    regularly. The surface can be vacuum cleaned every day or just sweep it.

    The wet mopping is required once in a week. Use of mild floor cleaners will do
    for the mopping. One can make it at home by mixing vinegar and

    Ceramic Tile Cleaning

    The rule is followed here as well; remove the dirt as soon as possible.

    Vacuum clean the tiles every day or a simple broom can be used.

    Plain water or the special ceramic tile cleaners can be used
    for the wet mopping.

    Stone Tile Cleaning

    One need to be careful while cleaning the tiles made of stones as
    they are natural minerals. Never use harsh floor cleaners.
    Sweep or vacuum clean. After using any floor cleaner use a dry
    mop to soak any type of liquid residue.

    Grout Cleaning

    Along with the tile cleaning it is very important to regularly clean the grout, i.e.
    the lines between the tiles. Hence tile and grout cleaning goes simultaneously.
    Grout is porous in nature and attracts dirt, grease etc.

    The surface looks shabby if the grout is unclean. It can also be a cause of mildew
    or mould in the damp areas like bathrooms. It
    is best to have a seal (colour or clear) on the grout which will
    not only protect the surface but also acts as an anti-fungal agent.

    floor due to hectic working schedules. Hence we come in picture and provide the tile and grout cleaning services to our clients at a very affordable price.

    This isn’t saying one staff member isn’t doing their job
    well. People wouldn’t stop tying my name or President Obama’s name to it if that happened’but that’s just how politics works.
    He was so good, that I doubt he stumbled over
    these best practices on his own.

    I find it rather unfortunate that the Department
    of Defense and the Pentagon are forced to cut billions of dollars, and brought onto the table
    because there is a single incident which has been projected
    into the news media propaganda, while the rest of the
    government wastes tens of billions of dollars every
    single week on nonsensical items. This is when issues
    like indigestion, tight movements of the bowel etc.
    For most of my adult life I have considered myself an independent voter looking at
    all things from all sides and have voted for both Democrats and Republicans but I can’t for the life of me figure out how the
    government thinks many if any of their plans to fix the economy will work and how we got so far off track
    in the first place.
