Riley’s Birthday

Today is my big younger brother Riley’s special day – the day we all celebrate his birthday. He is now officially 6 years old. Mommy made him his very favorite cookies: Tomutto and Cheese.

0501161345a Combine 1/2 C tomato paste, 1/2 C water, 2 Tbsps olive oil, 3 Tbsps parmesan, 1 Tbsps oregano. Slowly mix in 2 C whole wheat flour. Knead until smooth, then roll out to about 1/4 inch thick and cut with cookie cutter. Bake on ungreased cookie sheets. Mom found if you bake at 350 degrees F for 25. min., you get softer, chewier cookies. If you bake at 325 F for 2 hrs you get crispier, harder cookies.

Still warm from the oven, we packed them, wrapped them and headed to Riley’s house. (No, he doesn’t have his very own house, he, he. He lives with my brother Andrew and Jentry and The Boy.) We had a pawty and a good time was had by awl.

Riley! I am NOT hiding a cookie in my ear.

    1. Mom didn’t have any tomato paste so she used 1 cup of tomato sauce and no water and it turned out just fine. Whew! I would have hated to see Riley’s special birthday batch messed up!


    1. Mom found him when he was about 6 months old and he was with us for about 5 years. He moved out with my peeps brother a few months ago. Riley thanks you for your nice wishes for his BDay


      1. Oh, but your sarcastic humor is priceless. Hmm, yes, maybe not such a good idea while we are all trying to run a “clean” campaign with no poo slinging. I may need your help if things start getting nasty.


  1. Happy birthday, big buddy. Wouldn’t that have been something if a cookie WAS in your ear, L?? That really would’ve been a birthday miracle.

    Love and licks,
