Mom started her stay-cation yesterday by going to Washington, D.C. for a survey of the upcoming Nuclear Security Summit. Someone please explain to her that taking time off work - means
I won't count Monday - so today is day 1 of our stay-cation. And what a day it has been.
First - we (Due is here for the stay-vation as well) got up early and were out the door for a nice long walk this morning. Mom says 2 dogs means no camera. The woman needs to learn to multi-task here at home as well as the office!
Mom made us a new treat - PUMPKIN BISCOTTI!
Here are all the ingredients....
1 Cup Canned pumpkin
1/4 Cup Honey
1/4 Cup Water
2 Tbl Canola Oil
1 Large Egg
1 tsp Vanilla
4 Cups flour
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
Preheat oven to 350*
In a large bowl whisk together the wet ingredients (Pumpkin through vanilla)
Add remaining dry ingredients and mix well.
Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth.
(Mom got too busy making the goodies and neglected the photographer duties!)
Next divide the dough into 2 logs - 4" wide. Press flat.
Place on baking sheet with parchment (or Silpat mat - Mom's favorite kitchen accessory).
With a fork - pierce holes all over the surface.
Bake for 40 minutes.
Transfer cookies to a rack and cool completely.
(And I think I should get extra good dog bonus points for poising for this photo and NOT grabbing the entire bowl of biscotti!)

I hear there "might" be a trip to the BIG PARK tomorrow. Mom thinks if she doesn't say Central Park we won't get it...please...we know. We're dogs. It's our job!
Now we have to get back to our fun job - creating new mats for Central Bark Designs. Check back later for a look at our newest designs...Canal Street, Columbus Circle and Radio City Bonettes!
