Luckily I have managed to keep Oscar out of the guest room.  Wouldn't want Auntie Betsy and Uncle Mark to snooze in a nest of dog hair.  Of course baking had to be done, gotta keep the money rolling in..hahaha...
I so wish that dogs could eat people treats, I have to many great receipes for cakes and cookies and stuff but not a single one is pet friendly.  That is probably a good thing in the long run!  As much as I love an Oscar Bite it can't compare to an ice cream cake!!

I love to give gifts and if I had buckets of money, I would be shopping all of the time for those i love..and me of course!  It is a good feeling when you purchase something that you know a friend wants and just will not buy for themselves for some reason or another. I think Visa probably shares my joy, since they tend to make a little off of my shopping as well!  I recently bought a couple of concert tickets for my beloved, not Oscar, he's not fond of the band.  Now, offer him tickets to a George Michael show and he is front and center! 
Because I consider myself a "professional concert goer" I am never one to find fault with those who at times pay through the nose for a concert ticket.  I have lots of concert memories from years gone by and they are worth far more than the money i spent on the tickets.
I hope my pumpkin enjoys the show!!!

Valentine's Day project

After baking a quick batch of Oscar Bites on V-Day evening, we decided to try some cinnamon roles for mine and oscar's favorite roomie!  I did start a little late making them, but they didn't take such a long time.  it is amazing to me how I can knock out pans of treats, which involves rolling out dough continually and not make that much of a mess.  When i branch out to new items, I totally trash the place.  It is a testament to iphone that it has been covered in dough and powdered sugar, by mistake of course, and it keeps on texting!
The rolls turned out okay, I certainly ate them, but I probably wouldn't bring them out in public just yet.  Luckily it is the thought that counts and sugar makes everything better.

The day is arriving

I think in just a week or so the Oscar Bites website is going to be up and running.  I am very excited because my wonderful friend has put so much time into working on it.  Now the hard part is---what if I get any orders!!!!  yikes!!!  I guess that is the plan, but a bit nervous about the processing of the whole thing.  We certainly want to get the orders out in a reasonable time and look professional, I guess that comes with time.  of course, it's not like we are going to be hammered with sales!  I guess time will tell!!

Not nice!

I think people know that one never tells someone how old they look...dangerous territory. When the vet said that my adorable Oscar was looking old, he said it right in front of rude!  Now for a bulldog he is getting on up there, but not ready to cross the bridge yet.  He is 9 and we are pushing for 14!!!  Of course we won't cut him off at 14, but that is being realistic.  Anyway, just remember, unless you want someone to comment on how old you look..keep your thoughts to yourself!!!!!
