Biter Biscuits

A few months ago I bought some of those boxed biter biscuits for Boo because he had such a difficult time with his teeth. They were a bust, he had it less than 3 minutes before he bit through it and had a huge chunk in his mouth. He didn’t have enough teeth to finish it off, so I had to fish it out and get rid of it. Fast-forward to today when I think, the “interwebs” must have a recipe for me. I looked at several, but didn’t have ingredients for all of them, so I tried the one I found here. A nice healthy option, I made mine with 100% whole wheat, freshly ground by my brother-in-law and strawberry puree because I didn’t have any interesting extract flavors I felt comfortable using. I baked them for a while, so that they would be extra crunchy, just shy of burning them. After 25 minutes, he’s still gnawing on it without breaking it. He wouldn’t even let me have it to change him, I did supervise closely though, to make sure he didn’t choke. And best of all, these aren’t sticky like the store bought ones, so he’s got a few breadcrumbs hanging around but not gross sticky everywhere.

A few cards

A few months ago I found a good deal on a Cricut Expression and purchased software for the computer so that I could cut out fun shapes with it. Normally you fork over $60-80 for cartridges that plug into the machine and you can cut predetermined shapes and phrases or individual letters out of paper, fabric, vinyl and a host of other materials. I wanted to be able to weld my letters together to make connected words and cut my own shapes. I looked the two major programs that aren’t manufactured by the maker of the cutter and settled on Sure Cuts A Lot. Here are two cards I made this week. I need to make more cards so that the cost per card isn’t in double digits.
