Sure thing.

Blend in a large bowl:

4 cups uncooked oatmeal
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup coconut
1 T brown sugar
1/4 cup nonfat dried milk
1 tea. cinnamon
(optional: 1/2 cup chopped nuts of your choice)

In a small saucepan, heat on low til melted:

1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup honey
1 Tablespoon vanilla

Mix this into the dry ingredients with a wooden spoon or your hands.

Put into a greased shallow pan(s) and bake at 300F for 1/2 hour. Stir occasionally with spatula to turn over. Watch carefully during last 15 min. as it tends to start cooking quickly at that point. Be careful--the coconut and nuts can get overbrowned.

Remove and cool completely. Add raisins or other dried fruits. Store in airtight container.

Note: I soak this in milk for my 2 year old and he eats it with a spoon out of a little bowl. I soak it for about an hour in the fridge and it's then soft enough for him to eat. (I make it without nuts and raisins for him).

Yeah....finally used some of that tuna yesterday in a casserole and it came out great! The only thing it needed was a salad on the side, but I didn't have stuff for a salad. Bah!
So, now I know how to get using the tuna, I need to work on the bags of dried beans I have on the shelf. Dh and I haven't been to a grocery store in almost two weeks...hurrah!
