If I'm not mistaken, a few days ago I happened to mention that I had gone, once again, into the CrazyCook mode, and managed to produce for one, two loaves of sourdough bread, made with my own starter... Dutifully, after the loaves had cooled, I bagged
them each up in "saved for re-use" bread bags, leaving one on the cutting board, and depositing the other safe and sound, in the freezer. At this time, I had not even tasted it to know if the bread is worth a darn, but figured at some point the next day,
I would try a slice... All was well in "crazyville," so I flopped into bed, and sawed logs until I felt "human" again. Usual routine, hit the potty, pull on comfy clothes, let the dogs out, unlock the deadbolt on the front door. Next, I have to deal with
3 cats screaming at me, as they are starving to DEATH and then there's Mr Mitts, who has to have fresh filtered water, with an ice cube or two!
By this time, my eyes were still attempting to focus, but I did see the blurry image of "a lump" on the dining room floor... not at all uncommon, as Kenyon leaves his toys strewn all around the house... So much for that thought! When I reached down to pick
it up, so I might not trip over it, it felt rather odd... kind of spongy, but crumbly, at the same time...
A trait of the Afghan breed is, that they are THIEVES! (many stories on that matter!) Putting on my readers, so I might see just what it was I had in my hand, I realized! The Bad Boy had swiped the loaf of sourdough off the cutting board, ripped the bag
to shreds, and helped himself to 2/3 of a loaf of "fresh from the oven sourdough!" As the other loaf is in the freezer, I still have not tried it, so I have no idea if it's any more than bird (dog) food! I really should know better, but then, it has been
some time, since the "thief" hit the crazykitchen, so at the time, didn't give it a second thought... Is nothing sacred? Our afghan hound friend Audie, has warned me more than once, that unless it's on the "top of the refridgerator" it's afghan reachable...
20 yrs I've had at least one afghan in my home, but have I learned that lesson yet? Wonder what the boy will steal next...?
Remind me sometime, have a great story about dry navy beans... Have a great tomorrow, and a super wonderful (crazy) Memorial Day! More later all!
