Aren't these creatures stunning?
Yesterday was a whirl of activity in our kitchen and there were tails and tongues in full gear. We were launching the Paws to Love Barkery. OK, it's a bakery. OK, it's temporary. But the Animal Protective League Upscale Sale approaches (see www.apl-shelter.org for details)and we promised to bake. Locally we found a great new dog treat book and initiated by choosing 5 recipes to test. We got through 4 of the 5 before the power went out. There was a major wind storm most of the day. What fun it was till then though! Our dogs have to be among the luckiest alive...living in a test kitchen! They sampled everything. Before they took over we rushed the packaged goods to the freezer and there they will stay until the event.
It's all in the name of being able to do something for others. Our shelter, like every other NFP organization, feels the economic pinch. Everyone has to cut back somewhere. Luckily I am easily entertained by baking and I do not need to have what I bake staying here to be consumed - oh, no! So this is a win-win opportunity.
If you show up and buy some you'll win too!
