seen heard eaten

before the day closes birds, returning
grasses at my feet alive and flowering
eggs hand-picked, brushed, cleaned, drying
a second batch of delicious thick yoghurt, straining
Morning through the dairy window, rising
macadamia shortbread baked, eaten
.
.

to what we see, hear, eat
on any given day
thanks for senses
thanks for kingship
thanks for solitude
thanks for breathing

 ~ macadamia vanilla bean shortbread ~

1 cup flour (I used a GF rice/tapioca/potato blend) + 1/2 cup for kneading
1/2 cup fine sugar
pinch vanilla bean or 1 tsp vanilla essence
110g salted butter
1 whole egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup chopped raw macadamia nuts 

Preheat oven to 180'c. With your hands mix flour with sugar and vanilla. Cut butter into cubes and rub into flour until a fine meal. Add egg and nuts and mix to form a dough and knead till smooth on a floured surface adding a little water if its too dry. Bake on a paper lined tray for 8-10 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool and store in an airtight container for up to a week.

happy friday to you
