A day in the Kitchen

It is common knowledge that I like to bake and "play" in the kitchen.  I don't get to do it as often as I would like, but Saturday was one of those days.  I made two batches of Banana Bread to take to the church, I made my mom some candied popcorn, and I made Tiramisu.  YUM. 

I had made it before, but never did it turn out this great. Yes I used a new recipe, but I think the real difference was in the Lady Fingers.  I used Delallo Savoiardi Lady Fingers imported from Italy.  I have trouble finding the lady finger biscuits like this around here, most of what I ind are soft lady fingers and too spongy.  These were perfect.  

I guess Kevin liked it ok..... 

This was an A+, my mom who does not typically like Tiramisu, did like it and asked that I make it for her next time she hosts her card group.

4 months old

Today Mobi is 4 months old!   She is getting so big....she still wants to crawl into your lap.....

Here she is at Thanksgiving, not long after we got her...and in the same spot today:


You can see her feet are giant

Mobi and Stormy are good friends, and they play a lot together, but try to get them to sit beside each other and take a picture...well that is another story....


So how big is she really?  Here are the two girls stats....

6 yrs
24 inches
90 pounds
4 months
23 inches
62 pounds

According to Great Dane growth charts she is right where she is supposed to be, and it really doesn't matter, we love her however she is.

Mobi the lap dog

Mobi (at just about 4 months) is still trying to be a lap dog. Not sure how much longer she is going to be able to do this, but she looks forward to it every morning.
