So by freaks which old Dame Fashion hath,Rose would sometimes seem thin as a lath, In some style like the willow; Then again, like a pillow,She would look as she walked down^the path. When it came to the waist-line, ah, me!You could never tell where hers might be; For one day it would soar, And the next it would lower,From perhaps F in alt to low G. And no wonder it was, I suppose,At the Opera, then, all the beaus Who regard with esteem, Girls who wear the extreme,At the sight of Miss Rose, rose in rows! —Blanche Elizabeth Wade.

The crew below, all in oilskinsnow, are lying at ease, some catchinga few minutes sleep, others playingcards or looking on; and so it is for anhour or more, when from aloft theskipper shouts, Keep her off!Promptly the helmsman obeys, andour course veers slightly. He seessomething, remarks our friend, byway of information. Then suddenlyfrom the skipper, this time in a roar,Haul up the staysail, give her theballoon and gasoline, full speed anddrive her! Instantly the crew scramble on deck,the cards flying in all directions, andin a rush the orders are executed.One hurries up the rigging to assist theskipper in watching the fish, still somedistance away. The pulsations of thepowerful motor can be felt, and theroar of the laboring machinery comesfrom the engine-room below. Thevessel is tearing through the waternow, a broad belt of foam rushing by,

Truffle – Stuffed Banana Cookies
cookbook
Image by yummysmellsca
Adapted from Mad Hungry Cravings by Lucinda Scala Quinn, I stuffed each sweet, fruity cookie (which I added oats to fo texture) with half a dark chocolate truffle instead of adding chocolate chips. The twist was a great unexpected treat for my banana loving dad!

Makes 10 large cookies
2 tbsp ground flaxseed
¼ cup warm water
¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
¼ cup shortening
1 tsp coarse sea salt
¼ cup sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 ripe banana, mashed
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup spelt flour
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp nutmeg
5 dark chocolate truffle balls, halved

Whisk together the flaxseed and warm water, let stand 10 minutes.
In a large bowl, cream the butter, shortening, salt and sugars.
Add the flax mixture, banana and vanilla, beating well.
Add the flour, baking soda and nutmeg and mix well.
Cover and chill 1 hour
Preheat the oven to 375F and line two cookie sheets with parchment.
With half the dough, scoop 10 balls onto the cookie sheets.
Lightly press half a truffle into the centre of each cookie.
Top each truffle with remaining dough, spreading to cover the chocolate completely.
Bake 13-14 minutes.
Cool on the sheets at least 15 minutes.
