Our daughter and son-in-law, Elissa and Jon, arrived home from China! Their nieces, Ashley and Brianna, greeted them with signs. The first thing they had to do was to go and have a Starbucks coffee, something they don't have in China.
I had their favorite granola ready for breakfast. Recipe on this blog. It's delicious and good for you too! And check out my vintage jar next to the chalkboard rooster. The jar sits on the counter and is always filled with the homemade granola cereal. The rooster displays messages like "Proudly brewing Starbucks coffee" or the menu for a meal, or a greeting like," Merry Christmas"
