Bob Kelley's Curried Granola Casserole

Bear's Anecdote - As the story goes, Bob Kelley (Bear's dad) was trying to survive on his own cooking in that interim time between getting a job in a remote town and selling the home in the old town. When selling one house and paying for an apartment in another town, the money gets tight. So, when the granola cereal Bob bought was not up to his taste standards, he sought a way to make it appetizing. The box listed this recipe, and it has become one of his standards. YUM!!!
