Mom Steps Out For The Day

Bye, mom…why are we waving a paw at mom?  Where’s she going? She’s going to cash in her birthday gift certificates and have a pedicure and manicure.  I envy her so much, Shoko.  This is what I want for my birthday too.

Oh no!  What’s wrong, Shoko?  This means dad’s looking after us, on his own.  So?  He doesn’t know how we like things done.  We better tell him.  We should wait to see what he does himself.  He may think we’re bossy if we start telling him what we like.                                                         

That’s a great idea, Kali. Here comes brekky, let’s see how he does.
Oh my!  Dad, oh dad, I like way less gravy in my food. I want a whole lot more gravy in my food and I don’t like lumps either.  Just sayin’  Are you going to eat it, Kali.  No way Shoks, it looks ghastly!  We should take a few licks though. K, *lick* *lick*…Shoko shakes her paws and walks away.                                                       

Yuck!
I’ll get a drink of water, that helps to fill me up. Kali stands in her water fountain and then starts pushing water out of the fountain. Dad puts a T-towel under the fountain to catch the water and tells Kali not to play in the water.  But mom lets me play in the water.                                              

Hey, dad, I can’t get a drink now. Mom fills the fountain after I play in the water.

This is no good at all.  My Princess bed is all lumpy where I was playing groundhog.  Mom usually floofs up our beds twice a day without being asked.  I thought everyone did that for their kitties.  We can go sleep on mom’s bed then, Kali.  It’s not lumpy.                                              

You gotta admit dad is good at the game “in and out”. He’s right there when I want out and again when I want in. He looks like he’s getting fed up with the game though so we better find a new game.

Look, dad’s giving us lunch.  Mom doesn’t give us lunch.  Dad, I like my food out of a freshly opened tin….I get first dibs.  No, I don’t like turkey!  Kali likes turkey, I like beef.  He doesn’t listen, does he? Well, I prefer lotsa gravy in my turkey pate.  We told you this morning.  I like just a wee bit of gravy in my beef pate.  Let’s switch and then we’ll be happy.  Done deal, Kali.  *Burp* that was tasty and now I could use a nap.  When is mom coming home?  Don’t know but hope it’s soon.  I feel scruffy, I need a good grooming.  Dad would never think of it.  At least he feeds us, Kali.

Treats for no reason!  Mom doesn’t do that.  Oh, dear….dad just dumped them in front of me!  Dad, it was so nice of you to give us treats but we prefer you gave us one at a time.  Then we feel special.                                                    
I got treats dumped by me too.  Oh dear.  Time for mom to come home.  I think I hear her in the living room. 

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE

May your day be warm and the bugs few.                                                       

 

 

Shopping Around The World

Mom has obtained a secret document from a friend.  It was all hush, hush and on a need to know basis.  They met in the back lane at midnight….mom scurried home with her treasure before anyone could see her.                                                                                                        Except Cow Kitty, who was scooping out new territory for a  game of, “Gotcha, You Freak!”                                                             Mom came flying in the house and slammed the door.  Leaning against it mom told me I’d have to help her because Shoko has a big mouth and this info was top-secret.  I, of course, agreed….I was so nosy about this project.

Ta da…. It’s Shopping Around The World today with our host Piglove.                                                        This was a real coo on mom’s part.  She secured the recipe for Kentucky Fried Chicken coating.  Yes, those 11 herb and spices that have always been so elusive to discover.

 

I’m here to help mom.  Just call me Colonel Kali.                                                                      I know the glasses are not the colonels but his glasses are so tacky.  Dad used to have a pair like his….no pizazz.  

Colonel Sander’s nephew casually revealed to a reporter a recipe that had been passed down in a family scrapbook.

Could this be KFC’s closely guarded secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices?  The nephew Joe Ledington, said it is.  He claims his job as a kid was to mix this same recipe in large batches. 

INGREDIENTS YOU WILL NEED:

Chicken parts of your choice
flour
Celery Salt
Dried Mustard
White Pepper
Garlic Salt
Paprika
Ground Ginger
Basil
Salt
Thyme
Oregano
Black Pepper
1 egg
2 tbsp. milk
3/4 cup oil

INSTRUCTIONS:

Prepare oil in a cast iron pot to fry.  You will need your 3/4 cup of oil.  In a bowl, mix 2 cups of flour. 1/3 tbsp of salt, tbsp. of black pepper, 1/2 tbsp of thyme, 1/2 tbsp of basil, 1/3 tbsp of oregano., 1 tbsp of celery salt, 1 tbsp of dried mustard, 4 tbsp of paprika, 1 tbsp of garlic salt.1 tbsp of ground ginger and 1 tbsp of white pepper.

HANDY HINT: 3 teaspoons in a tablespoon

You will notice there are no prices for anything.  We are very sorry but mom re-packaged the chicken pieces when we got them like 2 months ago, so if she gave you a price…she’d be lying cause she has no idea what she paid. Most of the herbs and spices were kicking about in the cupboard and the flour has been living here for some time…no bugs though….mom checked.                                                     The ingredients for making up the coating.                                                                  We made up the coating and kept it in a sealed container.  If we feel like having homemade KFC one night, we don’t have to mix all the herbs and spices.

In a separate bowl, add 2 tbsp of milk and an egg and whisk.  Mix your chicken into the bowl and then coat the flour and spice mixture.  We used a bread bag and shook it.

Finally we fried the  chicken in the frying pan for 10 to 15 minutes.                                                                  Looks good mom…kinda dark though.  Can you lighten it up a bit?                                                             Much better, mom.  It looks tasty.

                                                                The finished chicken wings and breast.  It is a small batch because mom also baked the rest of the chicken.

Bake the chicken in a 350F oven for about 45 minutes.                                                                 Oh really mom!  What happened?  The chicken got stuck on the tin foil cause you didn’t use the sliding foil and the wings fell apart when you lifted them out?  They don’t look very appetizing.  Alright, we’ll throw some parsley on top of them. MOL

Which chicken do you think tastes the best?
