"But. . .? Whadaya mean you didn't make any? Really? Are you just kidding me? You really didn't make any?"
And so I was in the kitchen at midnight making these for Boyd so as not to ruin his Holiday Experience of Over-Indulgence. This year I planned ahead. Eat till ya' bust, Boyd!
|plus a gratuitous shot of Peanut and Bubbo for your Holiday enjoyment|
