The amounts stayed the same with the method revised; these nutty butter cookies come from a Martha Stewart recipe. I used almond butter and cashews, but literally any nut butter and nut combination would have worked. The oats gave it lightness and enhanced the nutty flavour. Speaking of nutty things there is a squirrel chattering in the backyard, I already told him to move on; he could get into trouble with the neighborhood cats. They are fiercely territorial. No amount of walnuts is worth a skirmish with Cinnamon’s friends.

As far as I can remember, the Labour Day weekend used to give us the last truly hot days of summer, school began the next day and as the month of September progressed fall would arrive. I am not sure about the coming weekend, but it was really cold yesterday, we have been shutting the windows for the night this past week. It looks as if autumn arrived early this year. If I could hold back the winter I would. Yet we may welcome the arrival of snow and ice, if the meteorologists are correct we could have three months of drought in the Thompson Okanagan Region.
