Shopping Around The World In April…..Seafood Recipe

April is our turn to host the Shopping Around The World for Piglove.  Simply put The Canadian Cat’s URL in your post with your favourite seafood dish.  Piglove’s URL would be nice to include too.


SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI……ORANGE

Hey Kali how’s the ole gal doing?  She’s OK….she’s watching and talking to the TVThe talking to the TV tells me she’s getting better.  What happened anyway Shoko…do you know?  Well, listening to dad and mom yak about her knee, it seems when they went to Omaha Beach after meeting up with Phenny and his mom and dad, mom fell down.  Really!!  Good ole mom, when in doubt, have a bath….sorry, that’s for us not mom.  For mom it would be….MAKE A TURKEY OF YOURSELF!

This picture  was taken moments before mom stood up, heard a crack and fell on her face.  Da Phenny knew it was coming and wanted to get out of there fast so is dragging his mom behind him. MOL.

When they got to London they caught a virus….both of them.  This knocked them so low that they could barely be seen on our cat radar, but I get ahead of myself as all of the residents at the house in Normandy were involved in fixing our recipe of the month for Shopping Around The World.

We peek in at the activities In the house in Normandy that day.

Seems mom was the bossy dudette for our recipe of Fish Cakes made with salmon.  She says supervisor, we say bossy.

Ingredients:

1 tin Sockeye Salmon….150 grams $5.25 in Canadian Dollars

1 onion…. 1.29 euro a pound , $ 1.38

8 small potatoes……very small…1.99 for a kilo,  $$ 2.13 euro

some butter….in cupboard

A true international dinner.

Directions:

1/ Dice onion but not too small.  Throw a teaspoon of butter in frying pan to brown onion.  Put onion in frying pan and cook at medium-high…stirring frequently or your onion will be black as my face. MOL

2/ While the onion is browning, cut up the potatoes and boil them in a pot.

The potatoes are boiling and the onion is sautéing as demonstrated by our model Broomhilda Brush, a charming woman.

With your other hand chunk up the sockeye salmon after you have removed the juice and given it to the pet at your elbow.                                                                 As you see, aforementioned pet is helping Broomhilda get the salmon juice out of the can and telling us to flake off, it’s his juice.

3/ The potatoes are done so smash them like this foreign resident of the house.

                                                                         4/ Turn onions off at this time.

5/ Add salt and pepper to taste and about 1 tablespoon breadcrumbs.

6/  Combine smashed potatoes, browned onions. salt, pepper, breadcrumbs and of course the salmon in bowl.  Mix with hands.  It tastes better this way.

7/ Make patties with your hands.  Put 2 tablespoons butter in frying pan and turn the temperature to high.  Watch constantly. Don’t forget to place the patties in pan. After about 5 minutes turn the cakes over and do the same on the other side.  You want to brown them on either side….not burn them.  DONE!                                                             These are some scrumptious looking fish cakes. Mmmm…perhaps some more potatoes would be wise next time.

A wonderful meal that we all had part in making.  What? Mr. Brush  didn’t do anything?                                                                   Oh yes he did!  Mr. Brush appears to have eaten a little more than the chair could hack.  The chair broke but Phenny was there to the rescue, moving so fast he’s a blur.

Thank you for joining us for April’s Seafood Recipe.  From all of us: Mr. and Mrs. Brush, dad, mom and Da Phenny we bid you a fun and happy day.

Broomhilda Brush and Mr. Brush aka Phenny’s mom and dad.

It is also Sunday Selfie Day with The Cat On My Head blog.  Well, we just couldn’t miss another Selfie Day so I took it upon myself to show one and all the beret mom brought me back from Paris for me.  Kali got one that is exactly the same.  Where’s the French treats mom….trade ya the beret for the goodies.  MOL                                                         Am I not one sophisticated kitty?  I asked for a green beret but mom didn’t think I deserve a green one.  I tell you…I’m not so sure about that woman.

Please stop by The Cat On My Head and view our friends trying to show their best side.  It’s a riot.                                                             Mom this was a long blog.  I’m bone tired but a little peckish.  Are there any treats in the big Paris bag?  There are?  What do ya mean I have to share them with Kali.  What did she do?  Oh alright if I HAVE to.

Have you known any black cats, Kali.  I mean like good friends with a black cat.  I sure have Shoks.  In the old house just after I moved in with mom and dad I wandered across our street and met our neighbour.  His name was Gauge and he was as black as your face Shoko.  We struck up a friendship and I would lie with him under the apple tree on his front lawn.  One day as we were playing around, I laid on my tummy.  I had a fair bit of kitten flab left on my bod and was what one may call, “Chunky.”  I would be horrified if one called me *chunky* to my face.  Anyway as I lay on the lawn Gauge danced around me and rolled me across the lawn.  There was a slight incline on the lawn and pointed in the right direction, I would roll down.  Each day was good for a roll from Gauge till we both grew up and I was a little heavy for him to roll.  Still we would sit on my front porch or under his apple tree.                                                  akitkalHe sounds like a cool dude, Kali.  Is he still living there?   Mom and dad went to visit Gauge’s dad in the hospital a few weeks ago.   Gauge’s dad was losing his battle with cancer.  Gauge’s dad passed two weeks ago.  Mom and dad were upset and wondered what would happen with Gauge.  It turned out that Gauge was provided for in his dad’s will.  Gauge and his dad’s best friend had a special relationship and Gauge has gone to live with him on a farm just outside Prince George.  *sniff*, *sniff*, *wipes a tear from her eye*.  Geez Kali, that is so sad.  Part of it is sad but can you imagine the love that Gauge’s dad had for Gauge, to actually have a legal will drawn up to include Gauge!

Now, that’s true love, Kali.   If everyone could see black cats in the same light as we do, there would be no problem.  Layla’s book on black cats will certainly help their plight.                                                                                  Kali and Shoks
