Five (or Six) Senses Friday (the Saturday Version)

A weekly ritual of sensual reflection, adopted from Abby’s blog. Play along if you wish, in the comments or link to your own blog.

Tasting: Chocolate Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. Yes, they are gluten free, and yes, they are delicious and addictive. Let me see if I can pull this out of my head for you:

1 1/4 cups of whatever your favorite g-f mix is (I make my own)

1/4 cocoa powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 cup butter

3/4 cup palm sugar

3/4 cup peanut butter

1 egg

1 tsp. vanilla

1 of your favorite chocolate bars, chopped

Mix the dry, mix the wet, mix ’em up together blah blah blah 350 degrees for about 10 minutes, and then consider them lunch. Not that I ate a pile of cookies for lunch. Ahem.

Seeing: A small harvest…no canning this year, that’s for sure, but they are pretty.

Smelling: Smoldering wood chips in the bee smoker. Should have photographed the huge comb covered in bees C pulled out of the hive today. Gorgeous.

Touching: Wet wool, wet wool, all week long.

Hearing: The neighbors, as usual. But not the karaoke neighbors, so it’s somewhat tolerable.

Feeling: Anxious. Been putting off too many important discussions and now have a knot the size of a cantaloupe twisting up my insides. However, a very productive Saturday allowed me to forget about it for a while.

Here’s to a brilliant Sunday, filled with sighs of relief and lifting of spirits. xoxoxo

  1. Those are yummy!! Here’s one for you:


    coconut date logs (the kind you get in the co-ops…but if you don’t have them mush dates up and pinch off pieces.)
    chocolate (to melt)
    ground seeds, nuts, coconut, or a mixture of cocoa and a natural sugar or plain cocoa for rolling the truffles in.

    Cut coconut logs in half (or take a truffle sized bit of mushed dates) and roll to make a ball. Melt chocolate and roll truffles in it until covered. Roll immediately in coating of choice, set in frig to harden. Enjoy!!

    I got this one out of a GF mag and it specified GF date logs so you might want to check the ones your local carries.
