the stars are brightly shining
today's dog is gracie, who lives with my mom's great friend judy. she's a rescue dog, one of those magical best dog friends, and though i haven't met her yet, i can tell she's a good girl.
you know what you can do? you can take spoonfuls of speculoos spread* (mom, you can call it "cookie butter" if that word still seems a little too close to "speculum" for comfort), you can roll them into sticky balls and you can dip them in melted chocolate. then you can place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet and put it in the fridge for a spell. then you have a delicious candy treat that you can refer to as either "speculoos truffles" or "cookie butter truffles," as per your preference.
*buy it at trader joe's!
**update: this just in from gracie herself!
Gracie Pearl Gilhousen is soooo honored to be Dog of the Day. Gracie hails from West Virginia, where a dog rescue group found her wandering alone, homeless. She now lives in Pleasantville, NY, and is looking forward to Santa bringing her treats.
