Today was a little cool, so I made beef stew. After dinner I was hunting for dessert- chocolate in one form or another. My mom and I made these chocolate balls. They are good warm, but really good cold.
Sea Salt Chocolate Balls
1/2 pound dates, pitted, soaked in water for 15 minutes
1 cup ground macadamia nuts (grind in food processor or coffee grinder)
3TB macadamia nut butter
1/8 ts sea salt
1 cup melted chocolate chips
Puree dates in food processor then add macadamia nuts, nut butter and sea salt and process. Form into balls. Dip into chocolate and place on waxed paper. Top with sea salt to taste. Store in refrigerator or freezer.
The original recipe is Date-Hazelnut Balls dipped in Chocolate from the following blog: http://www.glutenfreeinthegreens.blogspot.com/

One morning I warmed apricots and blueberries in my little cast iron skillet and added them to my cereal. The blue speckled tea kettle is my favorite camping accessory and I made tea almost everyday.

Yesterday morning I packed up early and started home. As L.M. Montgomery writes in Anne of Green Gables, "I've had a splendid time, she concluded happily...But the best of it all was the coming home."
