Gramma's Bentos!

...And More Food...

As promised, here are the photos of my Gotcha Day 'treats'...heh! Yes, as some of you guessed correctly...they are SUPPOSED to be Lollipups. *grins* Why do I say SUPPOSED to be? Because Mom made a complete disaster of it...the shapes of the Lollipups were supposed to be round, but somehow she managed to make the dough VERY sticky and hard to work with (when she put a cookie cutter through the dough, the cut dough shrinks away from the cutter...*rolls on the floor laughing* I guess her baking was so bad, even the dough had enough sense to shrink away!)

See? All mismatched shapes...bwahahahaha! The Lollipup 'sticks' are actually rawhide chews, and the actual Lollipups, apple and cinnamon flavored...*grins* It's a good thing those Lollipups smelled GOOD and doesn't taste as bad, otherwise I'd say it was a total waste of time! *wink*

There's one for Lady...

One for Kenji...

One for me (pictured in the last post), one for the fun of it, and the other disastrous icing-ed one...=P The 'icing' was actually dog chocolate...yummy!

Because the dough was so icky to work with, Mom decided to improvise and came up with apple 'turnovers' for us...LOL! The filling inside were diced apples tossed with a pinch of cinnamon. (Psst...they looked better on camera than they were in real life! *wink*) We ate all of them throughout the next few days as treats...Mom was too embarassed to give them out to the neighbors. heh!

Here I am with MY Lollipup! As you can see, I'm not too happy because Mom smushed the icing (how she managed to do that, I have no idea..*rolls eyes*), but it still smelled good. I think I'm beginning to like cinammon A LOT! *grins*

So, start with a tentative lick...

And go for it with one paw on the stick...heh! Note the icky mess on the floor..Gramma wasn't too happy about THAT =P

Kenji's approach was a little different though. First, he SLYLY and cunningly look at the Lollipup...

Start having a go at it with teeny bites on the back (and on the icing too)..

And eating up the rawhide FIRST before devouring that Lollipup!

I wish I had Lady's photos too, but she eats things like ladies do (aka chomping everything good and fast, making photos blurry) so we didn't manage to get any nice ones of her. =( She DID enjoy it loads however...*grins*

After all the eating, it's time for a little 'exercise', so out pops my FAVOURITE toy...mwahahaha! Please Mom??

And we got to playing quite hard...see the video, and you'll know why! *wink*

Stay tuned for the next post! Gramma has spruced up some LOVELY yummy eatables again! I wonder if she made some for me...*wink*

Can I move in with you Scottie?
I admire you, I love Kenji and I'm crazy about your mom's bakery.
Or just let me stay outside to sniff the pleasant auroma from your kitchen!

Those doggy lollies look wonderful! Mom LOVES Kenji, too... thinks she looks a bit like Dott with that coloring. We saw you came to visit... wondered if you had looked at the blog before the award one about our 100 Dog Years against the Squirrels. It sort of gives our history.

Mom says she wishes she could take lessons from your Gramma as she loves sushi and most other asian foods. She drooled at your last post and we drooled at this one so I guess we are even :) Corgi Crew

hi Scottie, those lollipups look yummy to us. we wouldn't care at all if they were round or square or any other shape, just as long as we get to eat them. you look like you enjoyed yours.

that was a great game of tug that you had. you have very strong teeth to get lifted off of the ground like that. good job.

Hi, Scottie -

Mama laughed when you said she couldn't give away any of the apple turnovers to the neighbors. There's more for you that way. We hope you are having a good weekend.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

P.S. Last week it rained AGAIN on and off.

i think your lollipops are pawsome - if my mom had made them they would have been blobs - mom is not good with dough!
