Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

Creating Warmth

Today's creative ventures included working at the bakery; of necessity gently chastising an earnest and likable but immature young friend; tending to neglected correspondence, which is a pastime with me (neglecting my correspondence that is) and making a gourmet dinner for my family. I was daring and made some gluten free chocolate chips cookies, and added a tablespoon of finely grated orange zest to the recipe, which came out pretty darn good. For those aspiring young GF bakers out there - in case their inquiring minds want to know - I used my preferred trifecta of gluten-free flours, masa harina, brown rice flour and buckwheat flour, and a wee bit of xanthan gum. Yummy. Nothing says warmth and home like chocolate chip cookies and try tossing in some orange zest next time you bake. Earthy and sweet and very very rich. Mmm.
