I Want to Lick the Spoon!

It's a spatula, Dex...


And, yes, you can lick it... but stop biting it!



Crazy, cross-eyed alien gets busy.



Mmmnnnnum, mmmmnnnnuuuuummm-nnnyummy!

(Note scar on his chin - this is from where he recklessly jumped from our 5 foot stone wall and landed directly on his chin. Owwy.)




Ribbon-candy tongue has it pretty well licked clean!


Here's what was making him so happy:



I made this last night... the blueberry/chicken/pasta salad I mentioned the other day... and it had him at my feet, drooling for half an hour before I was ready to give up the utensils.





About 2 bites into it and I, too, was drooling and singing, "Mmmnnnnum, mmmmnnnnuuuuummm-nnnyummy!"
Holy moly... I had no idea that chicken and pasta combined with blueberries, feta cheese, and a hint of lime could be so deliriously delicious!

(We let our dogs lick utensils off, too. Don't tell my mother.)

That salad looks SO good! We never get fresh blueberries...wonder if it would work with other berries.
