A Little Bodacious Throwback Thursday Love
We've been attempting to keep up with the Throw Back Thursdays on Facebook. Some weeks, there is so much going on we...well...ah...forget. The guilt to follow...there is some. After all, going through the hundreds of photos and posts, we are reminded of WHY we do what we do. This Thursday, unlike any other, we decided to feature a baby "hooman."
Last March, this sweet lil' nugget of baby "hooman" love stopped by with his mama. Lisa refers to him as "monkey." Me, well, I call him "baby earthling." Nonetheless, we adore him. Look at that face! How can you not get a little mushy gushy, right?!?!
After baby earthling settled in, his Mama made him a sippy cup. That day I was baking biscuits. The table was covered with our cooling plates. There were piles of our Bodacious Mountain O' Biscuits. Baby earthling inched his cute little fingers towards a pile and grabbed a biscuit.
No. One. Panicked.
Mama didn't burst out in ninja moves to grab the biscuit from his hand. Lisa and I didn't dish out a warning forbidding him NOT to put the biscuit in his mouth. In fact, the conversation we were all engaged in didn't falter or halt.
Our biscuits are made with "human grade" ingredients. I don't necessarily like that term "human grade." But, if we must apply a term, that's the best way to sum it up.
The biscuits we make are safe for "hoomans" to eat. Of course, that's IF you, or anyone in your household doesn't have a peanut allergy. We eat our doggy biscuits. A lot of other people eat 'em too. They're made with 4 ingredients. Skippy Natural Peanut Butter. Water. Flour. Baking Powder. Yep. That's it. On busy days, we're guilty of dipping a biscuit or two in peanut butter and noshing to curb the hunger pangs.
The downside to snacking on our biscuits is that we get THE LOOK from our fur-kids. Total. Guilt. Trip. Sometimes their heads will tilt slightly to one side...as if they're saying, "Mom, why are you eating OUR biscuits."
It gives us peace of mind that "hoomans" can open up a package of our biscuits, feed 'em to their pup/s and take a bite too. There is something kind of cool about that.
Crunch. Crunch. Crunch.
