Penguin Awareness Day 2007


Yep -it's that time of year again - Penguin Awareness Day! Actually I believe the official PAD was yesterday, but who's keeping track. For me, every day I'm aware that I'm just a little penguin!

We started the day off visiting some cute and playful friends

Look here if you'd like to make your own little penguin friends. And don't forget to click on the picture on the recipe page to see other fun and creative cream cheese penguin encounters.

I can't resist - this looks like too much fun!


Next, we made my signature drink - The Penguin. I like mine on the rocks - Rock Penguins, that is

(penguin shaped ice cubes)

I crack myself up! Really, I've been trying to cut back on my drinking a little

Oh, who am I kidding - sometimes you have to just go for it!

Finally, we enjoyed some tuxedo-style chocolate dipped strawberries

Do you know they don't start selling these in the store until February? So, that was kind of an unexpected project today. But, with a sweet reward.

So, happy (belated) Penguin Awareness Day to you! It's not too late to show a penguin you care. Here are a few links for you:
