Hello Fellow Felines,
Divine cuisine: Food that is sooo delicious that you approach nirvana just from tasting it.
Like marshmallows. Food of the gods. My person likes to roast them over the burner on the stove. I don't know if this is a common practice, but I'm thinking that, with the popularity of s'mores, maybe so. Or maybe my person is just rather unusual. I don't really have any basis for comparison.
Anyway. Marshmallows. Tasty! I don't really eat them. I just lick on them until they get all sticky and gross then I walk away and allow my person to clean up after me. Needless to say, this is not a common occurrence. And maybe it's better that way. So marshmallows are a special treat. Superdelish!
Marshmallows have been around as a confection since the mid-1800's. They call them that because they used to use the sap from the root of a plant called the marshmallow(Althaea officinalis). Now they just use gelatin. If you want to go to the trouble of making your own marshmallows, there is a recipe in the How Stuff Works website.
So, now you know about my weird food habit, marshmallows. I've seen some of the stuff you other felines eat so it's not That Weird. I've also outed my person as a stove marshmallow roaster.
Yes. It's a good day!
Ciao for now,
