365 project update

I've missed two days. But I'm not going to stop. Instead I am going to cheat.

Now that I have my meds balanced again, and I have some energy, I am going to head outdoors and try to get at least three very different photos, and I will assign them to days 17, 18, and 19. If I can't do it all today, I'll try again tomorrow and again and again until I catch up. (It's -21C adjusted temperatures out there today, so even bundled up, my ability to stay out there will be limited. I don't own boots, for instance.)

I doing the 365 project in an attempt to improve my eye and my familiarity with my camera rather than as an endurance contest, so this will suit me just as well as having stuck it out -- but the key will be "very different photographs."

But meanwhile, I have been making a lovely warming ginger butternut soup and wholesome chocolate coconut candies to surprise the boys when they get home from the chess tournament.

Chocolate Coconut Candies

1 cup virgin coconut oil
1/2 vanilla bean
1-2 Tablespoons raw honey
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
4 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 T almond butter
unsweetened dessicated coconut

Mix all ingredients together in a food processor until mixture is smooth. Drop by the tablespoon onto the dessicated coconut, then remove to parchment paper, and refrigerate until the candies are solid, then store in a covered container in the fridge.

  1. Thanks for posting this recipe. I took some to a meeting last night and had several requests for the recipe. Unfortunately my family is not as fond of coconut oil as I am.


We're happy to hear from you; thanks!
