Things I cooked yesterday

Maple and pecan gluten-free cookies - slight fail on the texture but tasted nice
 and conkers.
I still haven't decided what I'm going to do with the conkers. The cookies have already been eaten.

collecting acorns
Acorns neatly lined up
You forget how long it takes to go for a walk in the park with a two-year-old who wants to pick up and look at everything. Well, almost everything. Some nearly buried acorns are irresistible while some perfectly bright and shiny ones don't warrant a second glance. There are fallen tree trunks to climb on, squirrels to spot, sticks to throw, and fir cones to collect.

Can you roast and eat them? Or are they just for decoration?

I have found that most gluten free bakery items lack a lot in texture.

Taking a toddler for a walk demands quite a bit of patience, and can be delightful if you have it. :-)

A park in Autumn with a small child is endless fun . I'm jealous .

No, Luna, you can't eat conkers but you can roast and eat sweet chestnuts.

Gluten-free bakery is quite difficult to perfect, Sharon. You think it's okay but then flops!

It is, sonata. One happy granny.
