This totally cracked me up - I was at Root's today, and an adorable stand caught my eye. There were all kinds of intricate baked goods, beautifully displayed, very similar to what I would slave away at and serve at a formal tea on my expensive china. It turns out that they were DOG TREATS!! They even had a fancy birthday cake, all decorated and packaged in a bakery box! I don't even LIKE dogs, but I couldn't resist chatting with the owner. Their treats are made out of mostly local whole foods with some organic ingredients - probably healthier than what most PEOPLE eat. If I had money to blow, I'd love to purchase a variety of their items, serve them to guests at a tea, have them rave about how good the food was, then reveal the truth that they had just eaten dog food!! :) But, I don't have money to blow, and I don't want people to be afraid to eat what I serve them, so I won't.... Tempting thought, though!
In case you are a dog lover, here's the link:
Their stand is currently located indoors at Root's.
