If You Don't Like Your Treat - Please Lettuce Know

 "Mom - what are you doing out there in the kitchen.  I am SO bored."

"Abby - I'm making the Food Network's cauliflower soup recipe for lunch - would you like a treat?"
 "Mom  - that crunchy white thing does NOT look or smell like a treat!"
 "Abby - the Vet said you'd gained weight since your last visit so I am replacing a couple of your treats each day with fresh veggies."
"Mom - is that even LEGAL?"

"It's cauliflower Abby - just try it, you liked the frozen peas!"
 "Great Leaping Horny Toads Mom - that's awful!"
 "Oh my Dog.  Quick - get me some stale fruitcake to get the taste out of my mouth."
 "Blech blech blech - that's not 'cauliflower' that's albino broccoli and you know I hate broccoli!
"Harumphhh.  I'll just sit here until a REAL treat shows up!"

  4. There should be NO standing for that! or indeed sitting! Really, your peep thought cauliflower was a treat? Now if it had a cream and cheese sauce, THAT would be a treat MOL
    Have a great week.

    1. Angel Barkley LOVED cauliflower Mom said. She DID get me my evening treat of a child sized bowl of vanilla yogurt, so I forgave her. Abby Lab

  9. Aww Abbie, I'm sorry you don't like cauliflower. Do you like green beans? My Melanie always waited to pounce when I was cleaning green bean, hoping I'd drop one. She loved them raw or cooked. Veggies are so good for you and your mom is just looking out for you. I hope there are a veggie or two that you like.
