Happiness is being owned by a cat

Oh, N NY cat man , I'm so very sorry. Condolences to you and Michelle.
I've probably mentioned this before, but my mom was an avid baker, so we licked the spoon, spatula, beaters and bowl of many a cake. These days, of course, that's no longer a safe thing to do, but somehow, back then, we never got sick from eating cake batter.Whst is it about licking a spoon that makes things taste better?
I remember when I was little that when mother baked, the cakes and brownies were so good but somehow, licking the batter from the mixing spoon was always the most exciting treat. Why is it that the most wonderful part in baking desserts is licking up the leftover batter from spoons or beaters? Or, was it just me? It works with cats!!
My deepest regrets and sincere condolences to your wife and you. I don't check this thread regularly but came across your post and wanted to express my heartfelt sympathies. RIP sweet Burdock.For those wondering about these, it's because early this morning Burdock went to join Velcro across the Rainbow Bridge. Sorry, but that's all I'm good for right now. I'll be back later; when I can't say.
So very sorry to read your news. Burdock and Velcro are meeting new friends and also watching over you. You all will meet someday at the Rainbow Bridge.
It might be the flour now that's the bigger concern, as back in 2017 there was a huge flour recall here in Canada due to E. Coli infections.Actually, today it's far safer than when we were growing up. Eggs are now pasteurized, and pretty much safe as long as the batter hasn't been sitting out.
My mom let us lick beaters, spatula, and bowl also. I let Katie do it too when she was little. Then my mom would try to hide the baked dessert from us- in the dryer, the washer...but we figured that out.Why is it that the most wonderful part in baking desserts is licking up the leftover batter from spoons or beaters?

I agree, many in this upcoming generation sees clearly what's going on and many care.IMHO they are doing some amazingly wonderful things and many of them care a great deal about our planet and those who (are supposed to!) share it with us. If there is any hope, it is in them and, of course, in the ones who teach them the things that are REALLY important.
Oh I'm so sorry. Rest well and fly free, Burdock. I'm sure Pearl is playing with the kitties arriving and we'll all be together someday.For those wondering about these, it's because early this morning Burdock went to join Velcro across the Rainbow Bridge
