Celebrating Senses

image

  • What do you see on the way to school or work every morning?
  • If victory had a smell, what would that smell be?
  • How do you think dinosaurs would have tasted?

Two weeks ago we wrapped up our six-week celebration of curiosity, and this upcoming week we wanted to celebrate another special element of humanity – our senses. Every day we busy ourselves in life’s daily grind, and our senses become something we easily take for granted. We forget to appreciate how our eyes let us watch the sunset’s gentle glow over the horizon or how our arms let us give a firm, warm embrace to a friend we haven’t seen in a long time. We want to take this opportunity to celebrate how our body’s amazing sensory abilities allow us to experience the richness of life.

Starting Monday next week we’ll be focusing on a different sense (Sight, Hearing, Smell, Taste, Touch) each day, and we want questions from you relating to the senses! The following week we’ll be rewarding the most interesting questions and the most intriguing answers to those questions. So start thinking of some good questions for next week!

No Bake Dog Treats with PB and Oats

Guest Blogger:

It’s no secret that dogs like peanut butter.  My Coco is no exception.  I love baking treats for her, but sometimes I’m just too lazy.  These no bake treats, adapted from Jo and Sue’s blog, are perfect and so unbelievably simple! Trust me, you won’t regret trying these and your pup will be happy you did, too.  You know I’m all about keeping recipes simple.

Ingredients:
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup water
1 1/4 cup oats
about 1 Tbsp. honey
Directions:
1. Gather ingredients.
2. Mix ingredients in bowl.
3. Ingredients should be mixed until “batter” is slightly sticky and moist, but will be hard to stir.
4. On a lined cookie sheet, roll “batter” into balls.  You should get about 24 balls out of the dough, depending on how big you want your treats. 
After you roll out the treats, place the cookie sheet in the freezer for about 3 hours, or more.  Try not to let a face like this persuade you in taking them out early…
