It’s kind of a dreary day here, not much going on, so I decided to make a surprise for “Daddy” (what the dogs call him) and “My Sweets” (is what I call him), so we decided to whip up a batch of heart shaped Spritz Cookies. We know that he loves these so we’ll make sure that he has a supply of them to take with him to work to snack on during the day!
That’s what we do, we make Daddy happy. We leave him notes in his lunch every day to make him smile and make him delicious meals so he’ll have a wonderful lunch! Gosh, that Daddy is so special to us, but he also knows that we are special to him too because he is thankful that I know how to cook, and he gets the best welcome home every night from both Nikita and Bella. (You should see how the dogs jump over each other to see who can get to him first when he enters the door – it’s a sight is what it is)
Anyhow, back to the goodies… I started mixing up the ingredients for the cookies and Bella was curious as to what that sound was coming from my hand mixer. She jumped up on the edge of the kitchen sink to take a peek and I thought it was so funny that I had to grab my camera to get a picture. Her tongue kept coming out as if she had a shot of even getting close to the cookie batter, but she tried nonetheless. She did not succeed in a taste test. Nikita napped on the floor of the kitchen and did not try to see what was going on, as she is well aware of what the hand mixer sounds like, but she stayed close by just in case I dropped something and always kept one eye open.
We’ve got another night of American Idol tonight, audition #3 in Charlotte, so we will have something to snack on after dinner. As always, the Idol season this year has been filled with more fights between Mariah and Nicki, and poor Keith will be their scratching post. Man, quit the fighting already and grow up and find someone worth sending through to Hollywood and getting their dream fulfilled. It is, by the way, a “singing” competition!
