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!
What do you mean it's not for me anyway?
This is an outrage. I'm going to go watch football with Dad!
"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.
I've never tried that cappuccino drink...is it that good? I hope you get some!!!ReplyDelete
Happy New Year!!!
Lots of Licks, Ruby
Oh Zimmie... You look so handsome! Those biscottis looks YUMMY!! You should have had some served to you in your coffee mug!!! Then you could have imagined the taste of the cappuccino a bit betetr!!!ReplyDelete
Any time my Mom goes to bake ANYTHING I volunteer for KP duty. My Mom is such a slob when she bakes, if it wasn't for me, the kitchen floor would be a disaster area! It's hard work, but it has to be done and I have the biggest tummy so I take it on with a little help from my sister and cat brother.ReplyDelete
Hey A04 Human woman!ReplyDelete
My human woman is about to buy a new latte machine. She just wanted to warn you because you then get a strange urge to go out and buy the same thing... get your credit card out, apparently she's going to get an expensive one.
Oh yes - Miss Sitka c'est khorrekht!ReplyDelete
Zim looked pawsitively drinkable!!
Wags and Wuv,
Poor Zimmie! I can't believe you didn't get even a LITTLE cappuccino! But, at least you got what fell on the floor. Poor Chiefs, they did so bad this year! Oh well, there's always next season.ReplyDelete
oh my Jeannie says she adores biscotti - she gets it in the shopping mall when she has her cappuchino! But I have never eaten it - your Mama's home made ones look heavenly.ReplyDelete
I wanted to drop by and wish you all a very Happy 2008, it is getting exciting here in Scotland, cos we are in the land of Hogmany (or Dogmany as I call it!) and fireworks are going off everywhere.
I hate fireworks, but the hoooomans here are in good mood and waiting for The Bells ......once Midnight comes there will be lots of celebrating.
love and many licks, and thank you for being such good and kind pals.
lotsaluv and New Year Good Wishes from Jeannie xxxxx
p s in Scotland, we wait "till the Bells", which basically means when the church and cathedrel bells chime midnight, then all the festivities begin!
Although the fireworks are already lighting the evening sky now!
Here is to a Wonderful New Year!
Those biscotti look so so good! sorry you didnt get any coffee and sorry about your chiefs, the Steelers lost too.ReplyDelete
Happy New Year!!!
OMG that biscotti looks so delicious! Is there anything that your mom doesn't know how to do?!ReplyDelete
Happy new year!
Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
Your Mom cooks TOO!?!? Along with all that cool sewing stuff? We were robbed.ReplyDelete
You definitely should have gotten some coffee...or at least a latte. We hope you guys have a very Happy New Year!
The Brat Pack
Poor Zim!! You shouldn't put in all that hard work and get no rewards!!ReplyDelete
HAPPY NEW YEAR !!! We hope 2008 is a wonderful year for you and your pawrents. Thanks also for caring about Beau.
Love from Hammer
Hrrrmph. I don't know what your Mom was thinking. I believe some liver and bacon biscotti should be on the agenda very soon.......and of course something in YOUR mug not the silly pansy one.ReplyDelete
I know I shouldn't tell you this but I had some of mum's cappuccino this morning! My first for the year!
Happy New Year!
Happy New Year, Army of Four plus Family!!
Love and Koobuss Kisses,
I ALWAYS get a puppachino (the froth) when our coffee machine goes on - I think you need to try and train the male biped better - they are a lot softer than the females!!ReplyDelete
I think it is so wrong you didn't get any cappucino. Did you ever get a bite of those biscottis? Cause they look mighty tasty!ReplyDelete
Humans are so not fair sometimes. Happy New Year to all of you!ReplyDelete
Woo woo, Kelsey Ann
Happy Barkday Zimmie!!! May your day be filled with cold weather and hot coffee!!!ReplyDelete
Lots of Licks, Ruby
It's my barkday too!!! I'm six and have lived with my folks ever since I was 3 1/2 months old.
So Happy Barkday, pal, and Happy New Year too!!
That looks delicious!ReplyDelete
Zimmie, You should stomp your paws & woo & insist on a cappucino of your own! That's not very thoughtful, you need some to wash those cooking crumbs down with. Maybe if you gacked & acted like something was stuck in your throat....ReplyDelete
Our mom is drooling...yes, drooling...over those biscotti! She doesn't dare keep any here cause she would eat them ALL.
Wooos & a-rooos,
Star & Jack
