R.I.P. Mike

I suppose we could call ourselves fortunate doggy parents in that the destructive habits of our 2 rascals are confined to their playthings. Sure, now and then I’ll find one of my outdoor plants knocked over or with some obvious signs of chewing, but at their adult stage in life, they know better, and they also know that the louder the voice, the more trouble they’re in.

That, of course, is why they didn’t seem too concerned when I was annoyed to find Mike with one leg ripped off. Yes I will be the one to repair him, but the Westie gave me a look as if to say, “He’s not YOUR Mike, he’s OURS!”

Rest in peace Mike

I shake Mike’s amputated leg in the dachshund’s face and he just stood there.

STREEAT at Carroponte part 3: room for dessert

Chicco Pezzini caffé & poff cakes

Dessert carts and wagons at STREEAT were few in number compared to the rest of the food truck count, but variety wasn’t lacking for sweet tooths. Choose from gelato, baked treats, cannoli, churros, pancakes, and poff cakes from Chicco Pezzini Caffè Artigianale&Poff Cakes.

Poff cakes semplice

Poff cakes are none other than dutch poffertjes. Dusted with powdered sugar for the plain version, or topped with chocolate-hazelnut sauce, whipped cream and strawberries for the famished, Chicco Pezzini made these mini bites uniquely special by upping the glam factor with an irresistibly cute cart painted in Hello Kitty pink.

And lastly, my weakness, the obligatory sicilian cannoli. Made to order with your toppings of choice, Marchese – Cannoli on wheels also packed cannoli to go with a 2-purchase minimum. When we got home I pondored out loud why didn’t we get more than two, to which the MotH replied – I guess we weren’t greedy enough. Buon weekend!
