I was very excited to find coconut flour (New discovery #1) that doesn’t cost a million dollars. I have been wanting to try it out for ages, but couldn’t justify spending $17 for 500g (!) Apparently, my local health food store (read: my favourite store, visited by myself and Misty almost innappropriately frequently) has found a new supplier and has managed to get the price down. Hooray.
My next New discovery was something of a happy accident (not that kind). I always grind up my salt and flax seeds in the same pestle and mortar. I don’t clean it in between. Yes, I am very lazy BUT I discovered that the flax/salt combo is both delicious and nutritious when sprinkled over pretty much anything. Get your Omega 3s while you are hardening your arteries – two birds with one stone baby.
This New recipe is a work in progress. Sorry. It’s almost there; I was surprised how good it was first time off the bat, a few more tweaks and it’s yours. I just like to take unattractive photos.
The New recipe incorporates my New obsession. No, it’s not chocolate. Not really – it does contain cacao but that’s where the similarities end.
Misty is walking everywhere these days. I have to start putting shoes on him because I think people are looking at us and thinking, ‘huh, dirty hippies – look at that child’s feet – disgusting.’ These New shoes are pretty tough; not strictly “New,” (they were a gift) but they only fit his grubby feet now.
Old is New again = New project.
Don’t you just love it when you find something you lost/forgot about? It’s like having something New all over again. Another happy accident (no, get your mind out of the gutter) was stumbling across this retro pattern as I packed up our book cupboard. Also because the pattern is literally OLD (can you tell? Complete with some little old nana’s sewing notes scribbled on it) and I am going to create something fresh and New based on a groovy classic.
New snack. (From New recipe that is not quite right, but good enough for afternoon tea).
I love it how if you say any word over and over again it starts to sound really weird. Then you start to think about words, and how a certain sound that we make with our mouth has a specific meaning. Then I think that I think too much.
What’s new with you?
