Weaving in a blizzard... and some more recipes...

Outside/Dehors :

Inside/À l'intérieur :

The weaving looms became harp for a play...

Les métiers à tisser se sont transformés en harpes l'histoire d'un spectacle...

My friend Sarah has a great tutorial on her blog.

Mon amie Sarah a un excellent tutoriel sur son blog.

The girls absolutely loved it. They came back to it many times today.

Les filles ont vraiment adoré ce projet. Elles y sont revenues plusieurs fois aujourd'hui.

Our favorite hemp crackers

3 cups rolled oats
2 cups spelt
2 t salt
1 cup water
1 cup hemp hearts
1 T cane sugar (I omitted it this time)
2/3 cup organic canola oil
Caraway or sesame seeds to sprinkle on

1. Mix dry ingredients.
2. Emulsify water and oil
3. Knead and then divide the dough in half
4. Roll out on 2 cookie sheets with paper
5. Sprinkle with salt and with sesame seeds
6. Roll lightly again - mark squares
7. Place one sheet at a time in preheated oven 400 F and bake for 25 minutes.
After 25 minutes turn off but leave crackers in the oven for another 5-10
8. Watch carefully because they burn easily

Those are delicious sugar free orange and dates muffins

3 cups whole wheat flour
2 t baking soda
2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt

Mix well.

In a food processor or blender, combine:

2 oranges, diced, WITH their skin
1 cup orange juice or water
2 eggs
1 cup sunflower or canola oil
1 cup chopped dates

Add to the dry ingredients. Cook at 375 F 20 minutes.

Voici de délicieux muffins à l'orange et aux dattes sans sucre

3 tasses farine de blé entier
2 c. thé soda
2 c. thé poudre à pâte
1/2 c. thé sel

Bien mélanger.

Dans un robot culinaire ou un mélangeur, combiner :

2 oranges, en dés, AVEC la pelure
1 tasse de jus d'orange ou d'eau
2 oeufs
1 tasse d'huile de tournesol ou de canola
1 tasse de dattes en morceaux

Ajouter aux ingrédients secs. Cuire à 375 F 20 minutes.
