Scooby Snacks

One of Nuch's friends has started a cookie business that has really taken off.  She started making these cookies for her family and would share extras with her co-workers.  At some point, she got some requests that turned into regular orders until she eventually bought an industrial-sized oven.

Nuch brought some home and I approved.  They're dry and crisp - not too sweet, but the chocolate flavor still comes through.  They're ideal with a cup of coffee.

Nuch waited for me to try a few before she told me the whole story behind these cookies.  Nuch's friend has two Jack Russell Terriers that she treats like her kids.  Apparently, they had become addicted to chocolate cookies and in an effort to give them a more healthy snack with less sugar, she developed her own brand of dog-friendly cookies.  One day, her husband mistakenly tried one, liked it, and the rest is history.

Kitty And Tipper

Instead of a dozen blog posts here's a montage of Kitty and Tipper pics from the last few months

Not so patiently waiting for supper.

Another neighborhood cat simply known as the White Cat.  He took the place of the Black Cat and has adopted our driveway as his afternoon nap place.

Eggs Cream

I haven't tried it yet myself, but there's a vendor in Bangkok that has been dropping raw eggs on top of his coconut ice cream.  Apparently, the cold ice cream turns the egg into a cream jelly that makes a healthy topping.

Family Trip - Hua Hin

In late August, the stars were aligned - Nuch, her brother, and I all had some free time, so we kidnapped Nuch's mother and took her to the beach for the first time in 20 years
