Cacao Hazelnut Mousse

As far as I know we’ve had one squirrel on the land. We see him seasonally and Tiko goes wild, as he jumps from tree to tree. Well, we saw him. Tiko went and chased after him, Toto following, and I let them. It never occurred to me that they could catch him, but yikes! Back they both came, carrying that poor, dead squirrel between them. They weren’t even fighting over it! We’ll see if I ever see another squirrel, or if that was the same one we always see, over and over each year.
