Katja the Kookaburra

"Oooh, kedgeree is one of the special's today," said Edwina the Egret, reading a window sign as she followed Agathe into Katja's Kaffeeklatsch. "I didn't know the bakery also created savory items."

"Katja only started baking savory dishes recently," the aardvark said. "My favorite is her termite kreplach."

"You're in luck, Agathe," called Katja the Kookaburra from the counter. "The dough was kneaded 20 minutes ago. Let me take some termites out of the freezer and I'll be right with you. Sit over by Kalena the kitten, dears. Katie, kindly serve them whatever they want."

"You're the bee's knees, Katja! Thank you." Agathe turned to the koala and asked for a kombachu drink.

"I would like the krill and kimchee concoction, along with your kedgeree dish," Edwina said keenly.

As the two friends settled themselves around the table, Katja flew out of the kitchen and perched herself on the table. "Kudos to Winnie and Thomas!" the kookaburra trilled. "They are such kindred spirits. And, they are so romantic. Is it true that they sealed all of their invitations with a kiss?"

Agathe and Edwina nodded with big knowing grins. They helped stuff the envelopes.

"So, what would the sweethearts like for their wedding cake?" Katja baked the best cakes, cupcakes, cookies, and pretty much any kind of baked goods around. She was quite knowledgeable in all baked things vegan.

"They want a wedding dessert table," Agathe said. She and Edwina, the maid of honor, were helping Winnie and Thomas plan their wedding. 

"An assortment of vegan and non-vegetarian fare," added Edwina. "They know they want rice krispies. Everything else, they're open to suggestions."

Katja nodded, closing her eyes to think better. Kalena purred loudly while Katie set the drinks and food before the ladies.

From under knitted brows, Katja said, "Key lime pie. Kefir waffles. Kok, which is like a cream puff. Greek butter cookies called koulourakia. Have you heard of künefe? That's a Turkish dessert made with shredded phyllo dough and unsalted cheese."

"Yummmmmmm," Edwina and Agathe said, practically drooling.

"I can also make a kiwifruit cake with sprinkles made from kelp. I baked some today." Katja turned to the counter, "Katie, please bring us two slices of the cake."

Edwina and Agathe definitely drooled in anticipation.

    1. I wouldn't mind having one of those cream puffs. I'll imagine it. My new game for food these days. Not because, I'm dieting but because there are few local places that float my boat and I don't feel like creating my desires. Just as well.
