A Cumberbatch of cookies.
This is amazing. *-*
I’ve been intending to make something with the same pun using edible printing like they do for cakes, but didn’t get around to yet.
Did you make a press/mold for it or buy it? (I want one too if it’s purchasable somewhere> XD)
omg i saw this and thought of you right away ! benedict-the-cumbercookie!!
I found Polly on Craiglist. She was in an old man’s backyard, no grass to speak of, just mud. The halter she wore had forced a notch into her nose because it was too small. I rode her around, checked her manners, picked up her feet.
"She’s a good horse," the old man said. "But you cain’t catch her. You’d best get my other one over t’ere."
I looked at the other horse, a sweet and biddable Arab, and knew that she would find a home far faster than Polly, who always kept a keen eye on the old man. I didn’t think of it so much as a purchase as I did a rescue.
The first thing I did was take that halter off Polly and let her go in a paddock. “You’ll never catch her now,” the old man said, and then he got back in his trailer and drove home.
The first time, it took me two hours to catch her. As the days went on, I would catch her, never giving up, even when I had bronchitis, because I knew how important it was to show her that no matter what she did, I wasn’t going to give up on her. I was going to feed her, check her coat and hooves, give her treats, speak to her in low tones. She watched me the way that she watched the old man— like the second she put her nose into the feed pan, I was going to grab her halter and do horrible things to her. Her new halter, as you can see, is a rope halter. The dent in her nose has healed.
As the months went by, I caught her faster and faster. If you don’t know what this means, then imagine you’re standing in the middle of a football field, trying to catch a horse that doesn’t trust you. Every time you get close, the horse moves away. It’s frustrating, but you can’t show your anger, can’t yell or throw anything or give the horse any reason to distrust you.
Today was a beautiful, springlike day, and when I went to the barn, she saw me and didn’t quite come toward the gate— but she stood and waited for me, even took one step toward me. I gave her a handful of grain, and she stood calmly as I slipped on her halter and walked her in to the barn to groom her. She nuzzles and lips me now, rubs her head on my shoulder sometimes. She’ll let me climb up a fence and hop on her back bareback, and even though she’s scared to leave the herd, she’ll trust me in the next paddock over.
We see a lot about people rescuing abused dogs, but not a lot gets said about horses. It’s pretty amazing, when you think about it—this 1000-pound prey animal could very easily kick you, crush you against a post, or bite a huge chunk out of your arm. These are the creatures knights rode in battle, trained to kick enemies in the face. I don’t know what Polly went through before I bought her, and horses aren’t quite as adorably, demonstrably loving as dogs, but seeing a horse take a step toward you when she’s free in a 10-acre field is the sweetest kind of success.
She could walk away, run away, rear and squeal and lash out. Instead, she licked me.
Breakfast Cereal Tea.
For many people, the best part about having cereal for breakfast is that deliciously flavored milk left over at the bottom of the bowl after all the cereal has been eaten. If you do not want to eat—or throw away—all that cereal just to get to this special milk, Aaron Gemon has a brilliant solution for you. You can make your own “breakfast cereal tea”.
Technically, there is no tea in this awesome beverage, but it does involve teabags. After emptying a regular teabag of tea leaves, Gemon filled it with crushed up or blended cereal. To produce the desired cereal-soaked milk, simply dunk this cereal teabag into hot milk. Gemon has even gone so far as to convert the cereal box into a nifty tea bag dispenser.
