The other day I took my person out picking Manzanita berries and when we came back home she made some Manzanita cider out of them.
Well, my person decided to experiment some more. She decided to put some of that Manzanita juice into ice cream. So today she made ice cream.
I think ice cream might be one of my new favorite foods. Besides fish and meaty bones and cookies, that is.
My person found a recipe for honey vanilla ice cream and put Manzanita juice and sugar in instead of the honey.
And it tasted great!
But boy was it cold! Is that what they call brain freeze?
I couldn’t eat it all at once, so I dropped some on the floor and ate it in little bits.
I was expecting a few extra flavors to blend in from the floor. But my person just mopped it so all I got was ice cream.
And the Manzanita flavor was missing.
I think my person forgot to put it in because all I could taste was French vanilla. No Manzanita flavor at all.
Or maybe the French vanilla flavors took over the Manzanita flavor – kind of like when floor flavors take over what I think I’m licking up.
But that’s okay. I don’t mind.
French vanilla is good.
Can I have some more please?

Yum! Ice cream is so fun! I’m sorry about the floor being so clean, though. Floor is my favorite flavor.
Love and licks,

Cupcake, I’m sure I can get my floor tasting good again soon.

Sounds delicious! Have you ever tried yogurt pumpkin pops? My guys love them and they are super easy to make. Healthy too. I just mix a can of pumpkin with 16 oz nonfat yogurt together and freeze in a cupcake pan. I pop them out when frozen, instant doggy pop. Great for summer.

Susan, yogurt pumpkin pops sound great. I’ll have to get my person right on it.

Ooh! And some for me please?

Rumpy, I’ll stick some of that ice cream in a box and mail it to you.

That looks yummy, Bongo!!! Thing with the floor is you gootta work fast or else tiny creatures will beat you to it. Maybe that’s why your person mopped! 🙂

Marina, I’m really fast at cleaning up the floor. I can’t figure out why my person thinks she needs to mop it.

Kevin, my person looked online and found out that manzanita berries have lots of antioxidants in them. So I guess they’re good for you. I think she needs to give me some more of that ice cream.
July 5, 2013 at 12:29 pm
Yummy…icecream. I don’t know the flavor manzanita, but I trust you on your sence of taste, Bongo. And now I give you a big Pawkiss on your endearing nose 🙂

Thanks Little Binky. I’m not sure how to describe manzanita flavor. It’s not like anything else I’ve ever tasted.
