This has been a down day for me-down as in getting nothing done. I didn't sleep well last night which means I don't function well; or at all, the next day. I did bake some cookies using a new old recipe.
I have a raisin cookie recipe which I have always liked making as it results in approx. 12 dozen good sized cookies. However, as we no longer eat wheat and have cut way down on starch and sugar, I haven't made it in a couple of years. Today, I substituted butter for lard, coconut sugar for white and I use chickpea flour in place of the regular. I only did have the recipe just in case but they did turn out quite nice. I think I will try honey next time instead of sugar.
It is nice to be able to have some 'treat' foods that are somewhat healthy and I love experimenting with ingredients.
It seems that we are going to have a couple of days of nice warm weather so we are hoping that will kill off the last of the blackflies and may dry up some of the standing water so the mosquitoes will lessen. My flowers and vegetables are doing really well and I would love to be outside pulling a few weeds. Maybe tomorrow.
