I have no earthly idea what’s gotten into me…but I am so totally into food crafts at the moment. There’s just one slight problem. Once you make all these delicious delights…what are you going to do with them all? Yes, I know, I suppose I “could” eat them – seriously though….that’s ALOT to eat…and Im not really a sweet eater…
So..I have solved the delimma…make doggie treats…she’ll love them…I’ll get to make them…decorate them….and I don’t have to eat them…
So….that’s what I did yesterday… because….
I whipped up a batch of doggie treats – healthy-sorta doggie treats with wheat flour, milk, bacon grease and cheese…
MmmmmMmmmm…okay…they did smell good when they baked…
And I baked aLOT of them….
But then…..this happened….
Yep..our goofy Julia…decided that since they we’re made with real ingredients, she’d give’m a taste test before she gave one to Maggie our dog….
and here’s the verdict……
Maggie has a smile on her face….don’t you just love that?
I guess it’s all in the presentation….What a great gift for a furry friend!
