Oh yummers, Asta...

We could bake our entire pear tree!! Do you think it would fit in the oven???

Oh...and Asta...a small (but hilarious) residual side effect from Lacie's illness...


No wonder she doesn't have a date to the pre viewin' of Beagledoon....and is hangin' on to Mango man for dear life!!!!!


Not sittin' by Lacie barks...

It's raining here too -- the first time in weeks -- but that means th grass will turn green again and the flowers won't be so sad.

Hey Asta sweetie. I'm loving your new header. Did you pick those flowers in Central Park?. Fab visit with Auntie Sherry, hope she comes to olde London Town some day. Little Eric saw the Brit shop. From the things in the window he recommends the Twiglets. Yummm, but not with pears. How is Daddy? I'm sorry he's not been feline good. he looks very well in the St Patrick's day photo too. Great slides Asta and I did smile.

Wiry wags love and kissies, Eric xx xxxxx

Mmmm, mmm, MMM!

Those roasty pears sounds so tasty! My girl is retarded in the kitchen, so it will be a miracle if they turn out, but we might have her try them.

I would really love to see video of you helping your mommi paint like mad. Bet it's wild!

Goober love & smooches,
Stanley the FB

Stella said...

Sweet Asta, my BFF!!

I hope my girl can do the pears. They look and sound loverly!

See, when I hear you are painting like mad, I think of you and your mommi running around the house like crazy girls tossing paint everywhere, rolling in it, then smooshing it around until it looks like you want it to on every surface it hits... especially the canvas! Maybe I could paint wif you sometime?

Goobery love & sweet kissies,
Stella Bean

Hmmm, can't think no more, my brain is full of baked pear right now but I haven't finished yet, I'll think harder, muahhh!

Moco said...

Those pears sound yummy. It is always good to have a few new recipes.

Noah the Airedale said...

And it's healthy because it's made with pears.
We haven't tried this before but a couple of times pinky stuffed pears with chocolate then wrapped filo pastry around them and baked them in the oven. It was a bit fussy but tasted nice...so they said.


Shaggy and Scout said...

We had a rainy day too. Very boring.
