Possibly the most important aspect of a surprise party — other than pulling off the surprise — is serving up something delicious for both species.
Sur-pear-ise party puddin’
2 cups cooked oatmeal
2 chopped pears
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp margarine or vegetable oil
1 jar banana baby food
Directions: Combine oatmeal, margarine, and baby food, mixing thoroughly. Fold in strawberries. Sprinkle cinnamon on top and microwave 10 seconds. Makes 6 small servings.
Accompaniments for people guests: Add bone-shaped cookies to the usual party fare. Sugar cookie dough works beautifully; steer clear of chocolate — just in case in any of the canines get the wrong idea.
