We are Sorta M.I.A.

When Spring FINALLY did get SPRUNG...    it came on with a vengeance...     We have had TONS...   AKA  87 Bazillion...  thingys to do...   WINTER thingys to Clean... Oil... Wax ... and Stow away fur the WARM Weather...       And Spring/Summer thingys to get OUT... and Clean... Oil... Wax.. Etc... ready for use...  

 A N D....   The Garden to get Ready....   all Tilled and set...     fur...

The FURST of the PLANTINGS..    UP above  are the CABBAGE Plants...
    Our Dad... makes Nice Straight ROWS...    you should see how MOM does it...  She says it is ARTISTIC...   Dad says it is...       #*+@!#$&^@*   
 The CABBAGE Row is on the LEFT... and the ONIONS are on the Right...  150 of them...
     THIS is where I (Frankie Furter) wanted to dig ...   and dad said it was OKAY since he had ONE more Cabbage Plant and It would be a BIG HELP If he didn't have to do the hole.    
 We Have NO IDEA why the Fence looks like it is LEANING to the LEFT this way...   it REALLY REALLY is Nice and STRAIGHT... like one of Dad's Planting Rows...    Must be the Camera Angle or somethingy.       WE think it is really FUNNY...      
NOW We KNOW that we have been Missing In Action for like 87 Days...  and we want to apologize fur that....  it is just that we have SO much that Needs Doing... and it all comes at once...
    We are going to do a Post fur TOMORROW... and then take a few days off...   to try and get caught up.
   Ernie has 87 Squillion Sticks that need His Attention... and I have  MANY Holes yet to dig.
       We LOVE and MISS You and hope you understand...

ANZAC Day....

HAPPY    ANZAC   DAY....

The  Ladies of Australia and New Zealand bake these special cookies for ANZAC DAY  (April 25th) Every year...   ANZAC stands for  Australian  New Zealand Army Corp

These cookies were fur sending to their troops serving in times of war.    The cookies do not spoil.   So they could take the LONG journey from the Loving Hands that made them... to their LOVED ONES serving in war zones.
    Miss Tobi (Roxy's Mom) made some ANZAC Cookies and Brought to us... Last April when she was in the States visiting Family and FURENDS like US.    WE thought they were Delicious.
    Miss Tobi sent us the SECRET INGREDIENT ... all the way from Australia.... so our mom could make them fur US.
    Golden Syrup...  is that Secret Ingredient.  
 
 SEE???   it says MADE IN AUSTRALIA right on the bottle...
Now MOM had to TASTE it... and found that it is like MOLASSES...   in both TASTE and Consistency...    So she checked the Intermutts and found that she was RIGHT and that in this country  Molasses CAN be substituted for Australian GOLDEN SYRUP.  
     So here is how the Pawcess went...

Furst Melt the Golden Syrup, Butter, and some water...

 Mix the Dry ingredients together....
 Add the Warm Wet stuffs... and let the mixer WORK...   See the thingy racing around in there???

Then Scooper the dough out and flatten a bit with a fork
 and Pop them in the OVEN
 In about 870 or so..... OUT they Come...  
OMD they smelled SOOOOO good.
    Now there MUST be some FUN Story in this.. RIGHT???   YEP...  there IS.   The Recipes that mom found on the intermutts... ALL said that she had to use    DESICCATED Coconut...  and she could NOT find any of that in the stores...  so she had to THINK which is nearly IMPAWSIBLE fur an ELDERLY lady like SHE is  of how she needed to do that...     Furst she bought Regular Coconut... Put it in the Food PAWcessor to make it sort of FINE...  and then   she Spread it out on a TRAY... to Desiccate  fur TWO DAYS....    BaaaaaaaWaaaaah.  
      SO, TODAY WE HONOR our beloved Australian and New Zealand  ALLIES  who Did and DO serve and protect.         HAPPY     ANZAC DAY            G'DAY and NO WORRIES
