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 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
