March 17, St. Patrick’s SUNday

2 April 2013
Sunday morning we spent at church, which as per usual, is quite lovely.
I do enjoy going to church. And I know it’s the place to be on Sunday.
After church, our casa is the place to be.
We had a most delightful GREEN FEAST. :)
Green key lime ice cream. Green salad. Green pesto/feta/tomato quinoa. Green veggie and rice curry. Green sugar snap peas. Green guacamole. Green chips. Green edamame. And Green mac n’ cheese.

Our neighbors and goodies friends came.


I had a little bit of everything on my plate! :) Yum. It was pretty good actually.

Cherisse made herself some special green water.

And the Cabrinha brothers shared their HUMAN BAGPIPE skills. (see video on Facebook)

Also as per usual on this island, there was much beauty to be found.

I made delicious cookies while listening to conference.

And we had some paper snowflake lessons.
These kids were my best students yet!

Then when they came back from a whale watching beach walk, we feasted on the cookies. So good.

Around here cookies go pretty quickly.
But these one’s were so good and were consumed at an accelerated pace. :)
I originally got from sweet treats: dark chocolate coconut oatmeal cookies.
But I modify it a bit.
Mix until creamy:
 1/2 c softened butter
1/2 c applesauce
1 c brown sugar
1 c sugar
(or a little less sugar never hurt)
Mix in:
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
In separate bowl combine:
2 c whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup coconut
Mix dry ingredients into wet and add
2 1/2 c oats
lots of dark chocolate chips
and maybe some white chocolate chips.
Cook at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
That was probably one of my favorite St. Patrick’s Days ever. :)
Especially with those cookies.
