Once again it is Sunday night and I'm wondering where the heck my weekend went. Dang.
Anyway, just a quick note tonight.
Today is the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks. I am not going to write a long post about it because no matter what I wrote, it wouldn't be eloquent or reverent enough to convey the deep pain the attacks had on me as an American, us as a country, and even the world. I would also not be able to describe the gratitude for the first responders and those who have fought for our country since then. I could never imagine the grief of the families who lost loved ones, nor can I say enough about my admiration for their resilience as they allow the nation to grieve with them. I wish for unity, peace, and community for the world every day. Hate destroys, love builds.
No graceful way to jump out of that topic, so insert awkward pause here for me to go on to totally less important things…
Tonight, I made a paleo peach cobbler. I was craving something dessert-like for a couple of days, so I tried to cook (laugh all you want) to find a suitable solution. I found a recipe from Everyday Paleo for blackberry cobbler, and subbed peaches because I had a lot on hand from the Farmer's Market.
My lazy instructions: peel and cut up fresh peaches. I did maybe 6? I mixed them with 1 egg, 1/4 cup of unsweetened apple sauce, lots of cinnamon and a splash of coconut milk. Poured it into a casserole dish. Drizzled a little raw honey on it, but tried to limit it (hence the reason I added the unsweetened apple sauce). For the crust, I mixed 1 cup almond flour (it's all I had left), cinnamon, 2 tbs. coconut oil and 1 egg. It was clumpy, and I just spread with my fingers over the peach mix. Baked on 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Serve warm – pour coconut milk over it if desired.
Yummo! I didn't burn the house down and I made something yummy. Victory.
Last, but not least, I wanted to share some links for this week. I'm a blogging fool all over the internet!
