Granola Bar Cups

Hello, Saturday! Is it sunny where you live? It's bright out but still quite chilly up here in Michigan. I just walked outside to check out the yard—I pretty much froze my patootie off, but I did so wearing flip flops and a short-sleeve shirt so I'm not complaining. Back to the yard. Last year, we pretty much focused on moving in, getting settled and decorating the nursery. This year, it's all systems go on all things outside. Our flower beds are a, seriously. They're full of weeds and rocks and old mulch. But I'm overjoyed that the rhubarb I transplanted from my parents' house in the fall is growing strong:

I love rhubarb, and I wasn't kidding about those flower beds.

Anyone wanna come help?!

Or maybe you'd rather make these:

Granola bar cups. Cupcakes? They're about the size of a cupcake, that's for sure. I followed my standard granola bar bites recipe, pressing some of the mix into a cupcake pan to create cups worthy of a Greek yogurt/fresh strawberry mixture. Cook 'em up just like the bite version, store 'em in the refrigerator. Oh, man. So good! Not only do they make a great snack, they'd make an excellent addition to any breakfast or brunch spread.

Question: What are you most looking forward to planting this year if you haven't yet done so already? Along with the rhubarb, which I've obviously already planted, I'm looking forward to giving some basil a go. And some flowers, of course.

I have to plant Italian peppers!  They are the best!  There shaped like an Anaheim Peppers, but sweet like a bell pepper.  Perfect for stuffing!!
