Monster Cuisine:

I was going to post about raspberry bars tonight, but Eloise (aka Ms. Ears) just ate an entire pound of frozen chicken so I’m anticipating a trip to the emergency vet at any moment and need to keep this quick. Mr. Penpen made the ridiculous assumption that our dog would not gobble down frozen golf-ball sized chicken pieces left unattended on the counter. This episode also reminded me that, though I have managed to gratuitously post pictures of Eloise any chance I get, there hadn’t been actually Monster Cuisine* incidents to blog about for a while. Not because she has become less obsessed with food, but because we have become incredibly diligent about making sure there is not a crumb in sight – not an easy task when you bake a lot. I didn’t take a photo of the near-empty pyrex dish that had contained our dinner, but here are some of Eloise, amazed at her good fortune, eating leftover strands of pasta as if it’s her last meal on earth.





And one of Eloise and my mom’s dog, Burgan, mournfully watching pizza boxes leave the kitchen.



And one of Burgan angling for some macaroons I brought my mom.



*I started a Monster Cuisine section a few months back when I realized that I was spending a lot of time writing about Eloise. I started my blog in October and we got Eloise in December, so these two fun new things in my life coincided. If I ever move blog servers I may throw the rating system out and just call the blog Monster Cuisine.

Your dogs are just beautiful! Although a bit mischievous about helping themselves to treats.

So funny, I actually call my dog "the monster." She's much better now that she's older but in her heyday she was a counter, food-stealing wizard. She used to do it so fast that we almost couldn't believe that it was the dog. Eloise is so cute -- I love the picture of her licking the tongs!

I'm sure I've seen your dogs before on your blog but I'm not sure I commented before... I have to say it again though, they are beautiful dogs! I loooooove big dogs! ...especially the gray one (which I'm not sure is a Braque, sure looks like it: my fave dog of all time!)
They're adorable, Margot!

Hahah I would blog about my dog all day if I could! Eloise is gorgeous and I LOVE the photo of her licking the tongs! She knows a good thing when she sees it!

Hope she's ok! Eloise is adorable! She makes me wish my husband wasn't so anti-dog.

Holy moly! I hope she's okay! Please post an update when you can.

I'm glad my dogs are too short to reach the counter.
