Hypothetically Speaking

Hypothetically speaking, if you were to make a lovely pan of brownies and decorate them with a dollop of whipped cream with a  cherry on top and a dog licked off the topping would you still serve them to your children??

Just wondering.........

  2. Dawn & Lindsay,
    Hypothetically speaking - that's exactly what I would do! And do you know what, hypothetically speaking, they were very tasty! And my hypothetical husband was mortified!

  3. Barb,I'm your type of people too! Let's see...Saturday (hypoththetically) one of the cats dragged some thawing meat onto the floor took a bite...the meat was rescued, cooked up and eaten...Today our freshly cooked pumpkin seeds fell on the floor,brushed off and eaten.The floor WAS washed last Friday...Tonight,the cat started eating the bowl of whipped cream meant for our pancakes.The whipped cream was stirred and magicaly the cat germs vanished...I could go on.Beware...Chris you might not want to eat anything from our house :-)

  4. Tina,
    I already knew you were my type of girl! Ah, yes, the "pet gnawing on frozen meat" scenario - we've had that one here too :) I am SURE cooking it kills all the germs.

    PS - what Chris doesn't know won't hurt him :)

  5. Hypothetically speaking, I would usually have dessert after the kids go to bed.

    But I think today I will make them some.

    The Veteran's Day parade is too rainy and, although they didn't know about it, I am bummed for them.

  6. Hypothetically speaking, I would feed the whole pan to said dog!

    I am so mean.

  7. Barb,remember Mittens licking the butter on the counter. I am not sure what else she licked, but we are all still alive. Once at Lionel's house for Christmas Eve dinner, Donna and I were the only ones who knew that the beef roast slipped off of the platter onto the kitchen floor. We put it back on the platter and served it. It was good. Love, Mom

  8. Linda,
    Ah, but that would mean I would be cleaning up all sorts of hypothetical Doggie doo!
