I think that black socks are totally appropriate with neon painted vans and an old-school Transformers t-shirt.

Does anyone have recommendations about how to store the granola bars? It an airtight container? In the fridge? I'd love to make these but will only eat about one a day and don't' want to end up finding half the batch inedible after a few days...

I'm short so I'd be afraid of reaching over a hot oven to try to pull down a pot (expecting me to plan ahead to make sure I have every utensil I need before I start cooking is too much).

Thanks for the suggestions everyone! I'll have to do more research into the idea of using table runners or wallpaper - they look like some pretty good alternatives.

Thanks again!

I've made Giada's before and it was only so-so. I'm not sure how much of that was to them barely holding together or if I was just expecting a slightly different result, but they're not on my list of things I *need* to make again.

Grilled with a little olive oil, pepper, and salt. It's the only way I'll eat them.

Flour. Every time I tell myself "this time will be different" but no matter what I do, it always ends the same. Some puff of flour in my face, on my clothes, on the counter, and/or on the floor.

These look like spider mites to me. Usually that stuff that looks like dust in the web are actually the mites. And they're white, so they would be hard to see on white paper.

Spraying with dishsoap and water is one method of trying to get rid of bugs (although I admittedly have only had so-so success on my indoor herbs). If you do spray the plants, do it in the evening so the leaves don't cook in the sun.

If your plant is fairly substantial, I would also trim off the sprigs that are especially webby to try to minimize the infestation.
