December at The Lodge

Welcome to the first installment of Bear Mountain Lodge’s blog. We will have news regularly.
Life outside The Lodge: the javelinas are back, after two years. They are coming to the pond to drink at night. The Lodge also has a fawn that is much darker than the others- he’s got very brown muzzle and ears-very cute.

Life in The Lodge: We are getting ready for Christmas- ordered the candles for the luminarias, the trees are decorated,and the fireplace is blazing daily.We’re getting ready to cook the posole.

Kitchen: we were asked many times for the granola recipe at Thanksgiving-here it is:
Bear Mountain Lodge Granola
1 sheet pan lined with parchment paper
9 cups of rolled oats
1 1/2 cups real maple syrup
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup oil(either olive or canola)
3 cups chopped apricots(dried)
4 cups cranberries(dried)
Mix and spread on the lined sheet pan.
Bake at 300 degrees turning every 15 minutes for an hour or till lightly golden (set timer or you’ll burn the goods-trust me)
The poodles and horses are well.
