there's a scary photo at the end of this post

Marjie do not scroll down - there's a scary photo at the end of this post. (My apologies to The Monster at the End of this Book - but I couldn't help myself.) The other day I had a hankering for carrot cake. Because I'm not a big do-it-myselfer, I bought a box of cake mix and a canister of frosting. And then while I was fixing dinner I mixed up the cake. Well there isn't much I do in the kitchen without Lucy, kitchenhound extraordinaire right under my feet. (seriously, marjie, don't scroll down.) So, after mixing up the cake batter and dumping it into my sheet pan, I popped the beaters out of the mixer (don't do it - don't scroll down) and licked one of them. Lucy kept her eye on me the entire time. Finally, I called JB and asked him to come into the kitchen with the camera. (Marjie, just click away now - there's a seriously scary photo at the end of this post. You don't like scary photos - don't do it - don't scroll down.)

(you did it anyway - didn't you?)

Yep - Lucy got to lick the second beater. I told you it was scary.

  4. We don't have enough beaters to go around. I have to remember whose turn it is each time. Fudge cheats and I'm sure he's had more turns than the others.

  13. Mr. Bettis says there's nothing like a good lick from a bowl/beater. He suggests trying "pre-wash" on the dishes in the dishwasher before it's turned on. LOL
