When I make quiche I don't do the pastry myself, I just buy it from the store (oh the shame, the shame!) I left a couple sheets out to defrost this morning and came out into the kitchen to find this
Lucy had obviously jumped up on to the bench to see if these things were edible and probably got an unpleasant surprise. I can imagine that pastry dough probably doesn't feel all that great under paw. Although the pastry sheet was completely ruined* who could be mad at such cute pawprints?
*In the interests of honesty I did very briefly wonder if the pastry was still edible but the dirt left behind disabused me of that notion very quickly, considering what Lucy does out in the garden... and ewww, she was up on the bench! Good for the immune system right? right? I refuse to be drawn into the mad fantasies of the advertisers who want us all to be terrified of germs on all our household surfaces and to spray their horrible products liberally on everything - nothing makes me talk back to the TV more than one of those stupid ads. See even now I'm having to resist the urge to launch into a tirade against them.
The mystery of the box around the text in my blog has been solved - it was simply that my version of Firefox was about 2 years old. For some reason it hadn't been updating itself automatically like I thought it was. So that's fixed and now I can see the box darn it!
