Top Chef - Phoenix

This just in from my bro', Chris: "Okay, I finally got Ciera into her cooking apron and down to serious TOP CHEF bidness, after over a week of her being sick." "We made three cornish hens, stuffed with homemade bread-stuffing (with chopped pistachio nuts & leeks & garlic). Also had wild rice made with a home-made veggie stock that was awesome. Ciera helped in all of the preparation, with hamsterista Snowflake riding shotgun on the counter in her bucket. These pics are from when we were done and about to put the birds in the oven.

Ciera washed all the hens and stuffed them. After helping shell all the pistachios.

By the way -- I think pistachios are Snowflake's favorite food. She just dives into them (the only close fav food is McDonald's french fries which she also eats with great hamster zeal).

Ciera LOWERED her apron to be sure the camera would catch all of her Hanna Montana shirt..." "From one of my favorite songs (Men At Work - "Catch A Star") that Ciera and I used to sing together on our long commutes when I played the CD:

things get in the way
sweet sensation
of knowing you are near and not too far

You and I, you and I
You and I,
Arrow through your heart
catch a star"

Toni, forgive me - I'm labeling you as a Grandma and Ciera is your niece. I can tell she is still your girly girl!!
