The sun was out yesterday and my cool snow fort was in melt-down, so Stormy (Supreme Commander, Army of Four) assigned me to KP duty - basically, helping Mom in the kitchen. I love pulling KP duty, so I got right to it!
Mom was doing some baking, one of my most favorite things. Guess what we made together?!? Biscotti! Here are the two varieties we made:
On the left are Spumoni Biscotti - with cherries and pistachio nuts, dipped in semi-sweet chocolate! I really got to work when Mom was chopping nuts! Anything that hit the floor (that wasn't on the Forbidden Foods List) was MINE! It was great!
On the right are Cranberry Biscotti - with sweetened dried cranberries, dipped in white chocolate.
You know why I was especially excited, don't you? It has to do with what goes best with biscotti .... COFFEE! And you know how I love coffee! Especially cappuccino! I was beside myself with joy when I saw Mom fire up the coffee maker! But then ... what's this?
A pansy cup? That's not my coffee cup! I'm not even sure I can get my snooter in there! And it's so... girly!
"Hey, look, Dad! The Chiefs are losing again. Quel choc!"
This would be a lot easier to swallow if I had a cappuccino to wash it down. Hrmph.
