Ah. Sweet Temptations!

Of several kinds...Rachel made Dog Biscuits today. Yum...I've eaten far too many of them. Dog Biscuits are Rice Krispie treats with chocolate chips added to them. As you stir the chocolate chips and Rice Krispies and melted marshmallows together, the chocolate chips melt. Oh so good. When I was little, we were visiting my Aunt Lois and Uncle John one time and my Aunt Lois had a big pan of Dog Biscuits and offered them up at dessert after a couple of the meals. I kept wrinkling my nose up and saying, "No, thank you" because the name was so unappetizing -- oh, and because they had marshmallows in them, which I didn't like. Finally, I agreed to try a little piece...and it was wonderful. And it was the last one. My finickiness had done me out of some tasty desserts. It's nice that my daughter now makes them.

And the other temptation? Loopy Ewe put up new yarns today. Including some more Numma Numma. That's the company that made the Brunch for Beth yarn that I'm knitting up for my friend Beth. It's a little splitty but, oh, so nice and soft. This time they had (and I ordered) a lovely colorway with Tabbouleh in the name. (I take it back - it's just called Tabbouleh.) And another gorgeous one called Sprinkles for Stella. Fortunately, I don't know a soul named Stella so I should be able to keep these for myself! Wait till you see the colors. They also had a colorway that I actually have on my wishlist (I'm terrible with names -- Georgia Peach...that's the name) but I didn't want to go too crazy with my order.

Wow, I'll really have a lot of pretties to show you when I get my camera going again. Not the dog biscuits though, because they'll be gone, gone, gone.

I've had those dog biscuits made with crunchy Chinese noodles (probably those noodles aren't authentically Chinese at all) and they are surprisingly good. I think we called them spiders since the chocolate noodle balls were pretty leggy.

I had forgotten all about dog biscuits--thanks for the memory.

ML! You had forgotten dog biscuits?! You had forgotten dog biscuits?! You had forgotten dog biscuits?!

I may have to rethink your whole membership in the family thing....
