Mama and Daddy have confirmed they are going away for two whole nights! Mama also told me Shadow was staying with her friend. I've added this together and that means that I will have The Bunny Lounge all to myself on Tuesday and Wednesday. BIG PARTY!!! Everybun is invited! I'll have the champagne chilled, fresh carrots, craisins, all the bunny treats everyone could- uh oh here comes Mama! What I'm supposed to be blogging is to, if you haven't already, consider donating to sponsor Mama in her diabetes walk. The walk is June 6th, just a week from sunday. It is a 1 mile walk (we wish it was longer we want a challenge!!!). As we said Mama was asked to join a coworkers team and help out, this coworker is also going to watch Shadow this week (BIG PARTY!!!) so please help out if you can! Here is Mama's donation link http://walk.jdrf.org/walker.cfm?id87665140
and remember Tuesday/Wednesday BIG BUN PARTY!

"The whaaa???" Not the vet. Ya know, Hef has never actually been to a vet. He has been remarkably healthy in his 2 1/2 years, and he has his carrots so he knows nothing of the vet. I did stop in to the vets with my moms cat one day and Hef went along for the ride. He licked the recptionist nose, so I don't think he'd mind the vet.
Anyway, we are talking about vacation. Which we are trying to go on for just two nights away from the furry kids. But big girl Shadow has not yet located a place to stay. So right now we are weighing options, of boarding, doggy camp, and taking her with us. Hef is a tough bun and will be protecting the bunny lounge all by himself, with just someone checking in on him. Anyone want to watch a 50lb belgian shepherd sheepdog for two nights?

All because of a crazy little thing called love, I actually ate veal. Which I have always been against and refused. Hef's dad wanted something different for dinner and grabbed some veal cutlets. So I was confronted with what the heck do I do with this meat I don't want to eat? This is where I love my Mastering the Art of French Cooking book because just about everything is in there. Sure enough, Veal cutlets with fine herbs, there it is. Pretty basic recipe, browning veal, cooking it in the oven, then making a pan sauce from the juices with fine herbs and cream. Paired with a side of rice and veggies. I liked the cream sauce, don't like veal, but Hef's dad was happy.

Something very special happened yesterday. Hef's dad asked me to wash his car! Hef's dad is a car guy, loves his car, and worries about scratches and dents. His car washing has always been a big deal, very precise. Yesterday he came home and asked me to wash it for him. I feel very trusted and honored. Unfortunately for the Shadow the dog she ended up getting a bath too. Shadow is a weird dog who hates water. She shakes and whimpers while getting her bath, but she does like the towel rub down. Hef likes publishing embrassing photos of Shadow and knows he's not getting a bath.

Well here it is! Sorry for the delay, I had two unexpected early workdays and didn't get a chance to blog. This is Mastering the Art of French Cooking's Butter Spongecake. It was actually a very simple recipe and I wasn't that nervous. I wanted to frost with a buttercream, but didn't have as much as I thought left. Instead I used a strawberry whipped and decorated with cherries. It was met with great reviews. I'm a bit more confidente in my baking skills now!

Hoppy Mommy's day to everyone (except dads!) It's me Hef blogging today! Mama of course has the day off! Just like The Bunnz, I have my own account now! She wanted everyone to know her cake turned out well and she is going to frost it and show it to everybun tomorrow. Have fun everybun, and be nice to your mommy! Oh yeah, and an especially happy mother's day to my granmommy, my mommy's mom!
