Shopping Around The World…March Edition

This month Phenny from Easy Blog  is offering Shopping Around The World for Bacon of Piglove blog.  Aside from putting down the prices we are suppose to make up a delicious sweet and tasty dessert.                                                                       

We decided to do one of our more challenging pies with our friends. We are not a dessert family unless we buy it. Then look out we can gobble down sweets like your average turkey.  Our pie is Key Lime Pie and it is delicious.

All items purchased at The Real Canadian Superstore.

You will need a graham cracker pie crust.

A 9 inch graham cracker pie crust is $3.48                                                                                

A box of Key Lime Pudding

A 25 gram box  $3.97                                                                               

Two eggs

a dozen large eggs $2.25 so 2 eggs will be $0.40                                                                

Can of Whipping Cream…light  hehe

225 grams $3.52                                                                                 

There….you are armed and dangerous.  I’m just supervising mom to see how she messes up. MOL

INSTRUCTIONS:

1/ First we take the pie shell and brush the two egg whites that have been whisked together on the inside of the crust.   Then put the crust into a preheated oven at 350F for five minutes

.

2/  Take the Key Lime pudding and mix according to the recipe.  You will be using your left over yolks here.  Follow the recipe on the package of pudding.  After making the pudding wait for a few minutes to see if it is thickening.

3/  Meanwhile your pie crust is ready and you should cool it off while your pudding is thickening.

4/  Pour your key lime pudding into the graham cracker pie crust when both are cool.                                                                                
5/ Refrigerate the pie and filling for 2 hours.                                                                     Ta Da…done.  Enjoy!

A nice decoration on the Key Lime Pie is a sprig of nip or a small duck that quacks out the virtues of sweets.

May your pie not have a fur coat but
if it does braid the fur and chow down.                                                                       

 

Shoko Prepares for the Vet Clinic

ashokhome Shoko is looking for some chow but there is not even a lone kibble to take away the hunger pangs.

ashoktooth2Dad caught Shoko as she was leaving the kitchen.  Shoko, mom and dad left for the vet clinic at 7:30am this morning.  Shoko was brave but sung out her contempt for mom and dad’s actions almost immediately after being tossed carelessly in her box…sorry, I was seeing the events from Shoko’s viewpoint.  Shoko was placed lightly in her box.  Better, eh?  Off they went as I waved good-bye at the living room window. 

 Once at the Vet Clinic, Shoko was weighed again and she weighs the same as last week….imagine, no gorging because of the upcoming surgery.  Great.

ashokboxes1Shoko got back in her box and was taken to pre-op.

There you have it friends.  Shoko is being operated on as you read this post.                                                                         SHOKOKALI2

 

Shoko’s Horror Story

Kali, Kali I was taken in the little box to the vet’s this morning!  *Shoko runs into the bedroom and wakes Kali.*                                                    akacrGood grief Shoko, you scared me. Yawn!!  You went to the vets?  You?  There’s never anything wrong with you, I wonder why mom took you there.

It was horrible Kali.  They weighed me by putting me in this stupid looking basket with a paper towel in it.  Like…like I was going to go tinkles on their precious machine.  After that episode I rushed to get back in my box and managed to sit there till Dr. Kalyn came into the room.  She said I weigh about the same as last year so I’m keeping my kittenish figure.  Mom babbled away at her and then Dr. Kalyn stuck her fingers in my mouth.  Cwap, she made my sore tooth hurt.  I didn’t like it a bit but then she said to me, “My little sweetheart, I’m so sorry to have to do this to you.”  Hey, Dr. Kalyn is very nice to us.  I got the chance to get into my box so took it.  Mom and Dr. K babbled back and forth for a bit and dad stood playing his game.  I heard, “We’ll be back Monday.” and we were outta the little exam room.  The visit was $36.80 but Dr. Kalyn didn’t charge mom for the visit.  BONUS!

I was quiet all the way home and thundered outside as soon  as the door was open.  Cow Kitty was over for a visit so I sat down and told him all about it.  His tail just kept getting bigger.  I scared him.

Cow Kitty was so startled by the vet news, he dropped the moth he had in his mouth.                                                              acksEgads!  I don’t want them to drill out a tooth or something equally as bad.  Look Shoko, is your tooth sore?  Yes.  Does it hurt more when you chew down on that tooth?  YesIs it the worst pain you’ve ever felt when you bite into your favourite treats, Island Paradise.  Oh, you know it is, Kali.  My eye water’s and the pain makes me drop my treat and run…thundering down the hall.  It only makes sense then to see the dentist at the vet’s.  You don’t want to lose most of your teeth like me.  You don’t have to mouth your wet food, it’s just that your tooth is very sore so this is your way of compensating.  I know you’re right Kali but I still don’t like the idea.  C’mon Shoks we’ll go grab a nap together.  OK. but no mushy stuff.  I just want to feel your with me sis.  OK, my lil sis.                                                               aakstouch                                                                               aattouchAww…I feel more relaxed now.

Have a great Wednesday my friends.

Take a zip over to Lexi the Schnauzer and read about her latest campaign strategy meeting. I read this post after the vet visit and it cheered me right up.

Box Up Artsy Caturday

Cat art

A sneaky post today.  It’s International Box Day and Artsy Fartsy Caturday.  We combined both of our favourite days and came up with a Fartsy Box Day.  MOL

ashoksboxThis Cat Lady box fit just right.  I was nice and snug as a bug in a rug.  I just couldn’t keep my eyes open.

aaboxkI was  advertising BC Peaches.  They are very popular but I am hoping BC Peaches will send me some treats for my efforts.  I hope they don’t send peaches…don’t tell anyone but I don’t like peaches.

I am the Artsy gal for the day.                                                           aaaaa

Mom played around with Pizap today and right away gave me a Popeye effect which seemed to darken the picture. Then she played around with various effects and got the names all mixed up. OK mom…a bit spacey are we? What do ya mean I am the spacey one? No, no, don’t go into detail! MOL

Take a peek at the other anipals that have been subjected to weird effects on Athena’s Wise Kitty blog.   Um…they don’t seem to mind.

Have an enjoyable day and may  your nip be fresh and free of bugs.

The Stroller Tryouts

Git away from me, mom.  I don’t want to ride in that box on wheels!  Kali doesn’t look very interested either.  What are you doing….throwing Island Paradise into the box?  You can get them Kali.  I have a feeling mom is going to trap one of us in there.

akazmcr                                                                          akssm1

Ok, get out now Kali…run like the wind.  You’re too late…mom’s moving the box.                                                             akzmstrWhoa, Kali is refusing to sit down!  She does not look happy.

aksmAre you ok Kali?  I don’t like this a bit Shoko.  There are nice comfy blankies here but I don’t like the movement.  Let me out!  Mom’s heading for the bed so you can jump off.  Geez if Kali doesn’t like it……I gotta wonder!                                                          ashstrWaiting for it to seem strange …..nothing’s happening.  Kali, this is kinda fun.  I don’t have to walk, I’m just rollin’ along and its comfy.                                                            ashzmcrOh, it looks interesting over this way mom.  C’mom step on the gas…I wanna see what’s happening.                                                     ashcrWell, paint me yellow and call me a cab, I really enjoyed the spin around the inside of the house. No fuss, just a sweet ride with blankies that feel so comfy on my tush.  I must rethink the idea that pet strollers are bad.                                                                              Kali and Shoks

 

 

 

 

Christmas Day at Fort Meezer in Da Hood

What a wonderful Crisp Mouse.  We are so lucky to have such great friends.  Mom and dad were excellent at interpreting our signals for what we craved the most of all.

Christmas morning found us all ready to dive into the prezzies whether they were ours or not.  Dad kyboshed that idea smartly and gave us our first present each.  We looked so organized and well…. you know, Dudley do right.  Then mom said oh what did Shoko get from her Secret Santa?….. and I was there like a shot.shokscropedzm

Turns out my Secret Santa was Pete Hartley, Co-Patrol Leader of The ThunderCats Den in Cat Scouts. He sent us a gorgeous feather wand….I’ve never seen so many feathers all in one place. Thank you Pete H. I love it.                                                                 kalinipsmHere is Kali digging into some nip from the Rockies.  This was sent by mom’s brother and wife and their kitties.  Uncle John lives right smack dab in the mountains and the soil produces thee BESTEST nip EVER.  Thanks Uncle and Aunty.                                                     momprezziesmMom decided to open one of her presents also.  Hurry up….I’m dying to know what it is.  Carol Burnett dvd’s…um well,that’s nice.  You can take them for your IV Treatments, put earplugs in, and sit there and laugh.  Peeps will think you’re nuts!  hahaha                                              einey's prezziesmThis is our box from Einstein and Buddy Of Timmy’s Commentary and family.  You know, I’ve never seen a roll of dehydrated chicky boobs in my WHOLE life but these guys found one and sent it to us.  We’re fixed for chicky boobs for a year.  Wow.  We each got a personalized card from our honeys, a crinkle ball…I never saw one of those either, some nip, a kicker and so many things from these wonderful mancats.  Notice the black kicker Bacon from Piglove sent us.  It’s unbelievable.  You can’t realy see the Friskies in a box shaped like a cat head from Easy but they’re in mom’s mess.

kalibudboxsmThis is for ME?  I like it…..chicky boobs galore.

Mom, Kali and I thank all the furfriends that sent Christmas Cards and we have attempted to make a slide show….don’t laugh….we tried.

What a fun  and filling day.  The turkey was scrumptious.

What Shall We Call This Thing?

Dad was looking around the internet and saw an interactive toy for us.  He wasn’t sure if we’d bother with it….I guess we have a reputation as picky so he just did the basics to see if there would be any interest.

We have no name for this toy but here is a picture of the toy.  Note the toy has brown paper because it is the finished product unlike what you will see in the other pictures.                                                                               DSCN4573This is easy to make.  You will need a small box, 6 plastic cups. tape and the scissors to cut holes for the plastic cups.  Inside you will want to put some treats.

Our box wouldn’t close so dad needed tape to close it up.  He carved out the 6 holes and put the plastic cups with 2 beef temptations in each cup.

The first to test the effectiveness of this toy was Kali.

kalislot1.Kali was not impressed and wandered away.

Elfin John wanted to see what the fuss was about.                                                                                 elfinsearch     There was no nip in the plastic cup and Elfin John soon lost interest.

The last one to try it was me.  I was not particularly impressed at first glance.

shokolook

Then I started to poke about.  Hey, this thing makes noise and it smells like beef.

aaa

Note:  with more feverish activity, the cups turn this way and that…perhaps if dad glued them to the floor…mmmm…just sayin’.

shoks3

Yes, this will do nicely, thank you dad….. I love the smell of beef in my cups.  MOL
