Casa de Chihuahuas and Chaos
What cures eight hours in a car with two hyperactive Chihuahuas that do nothing but terrorize their cousin Chihuahua with incessant yapping and growling?
Why, pie of course!
And not just any pie, but my favorite: apple crumbly pie. Oh, sweet heavens. My dear mother-in-law not only made me her famous spaghetti, but she made me a pie. A la mode, of course. Let me tell you, after the sniping and growling my two little "angels" have been doing, it was desperately needed.
You see, here in Shreveport, it is Casa de Chihuahuas. They have Ace, we have the Babies. Wherever you go, you have the pitter-pattering of paws prancing behind you.
Not to mention the barking, snarling, sniping and down right obnoxiousness. I'm ashamed to say it, but I've raised two antisocial introvert Chihuahuas.
The worst part is they aren't ashamed at all.
They're prancing around as if they own this place and Ace is simply an intruder to be exterminated.
So for the sake of my sanity and keeping the peace....
I think I'll need to bake some more pies.
And I've got a pile of berries to do it, provided by my dear mother-in-law. At first when I saw these, I immediately thought of my blueberry raspberry crumble. Remember?
But then I thought, let's be new! Experiment! Try something different!
So, send me your suggestions! Keep sending me your questions. Also, don't fear Invisible Friends. Peanut butter pie and more fun tales are on the way!
