Tyebe, c’mon we’re going for a walk in the Lane.
We haven’t been in the Lane for a couple of months. Woohoo! Budd, Budd….wake up. Get your walking booties on, we’re all going for a walk in the Lane.
Hurry up you two. Quite sniffing every little blade of grass or it’ll be dark before you get to the falling down house!
We’s hurrying Shokos. Come on Budd….get your paws movin’.
Ah! The smell of fall is in the air. It’s getting cold. Look the Mountain Ash is loaded with berries again. A hard winter’s in store for this area.
Tyebe and Budd will never find me in here. mol Hissss….you found me Tyebe. There’s no fur growing between me’s claws Shokos.
Mom wants us to head home. So let’s go, gang.
Already, it’s time to go home! No, I’s don’t wanna go!
Let’s go home, Tyebe. Shoko said something about it being Thankful Thursday so let’s tell everyone about our adventure in the Lane.
That was a fun walk even if I had to wear a leash. We are so thankful mom took us out for a walk in the Lane. We are joining Brian’s Home for Thankful Thursday. Just click on the badge and be taken to see the other thankful anipals. Me’s sure am tired now.
Have a wonderful Thursday!
Friday is Fill-In day from 15 and Meowing and Four -Legged Furballs. Thank you ladies for the fabulous sentences.
1. When it is hot,….. I HEAD INTO THE LANE TO SLEEP IN THE LONG COOL GRASS OF THE DILAPIDATED HOUSE.
Over to you Tyebe. Now just relax and tell it like it is,
Today’s is Brian’s Thankful Thursday and we thought we’d join in as we are very Thankful today. Today has been one of those days and we’re having a fair number of them…..sleep is the first thing that enters our minds. It’s cold and yucky out.
The snow is coming down so fast and thick. Brrr..
Kali and I have moved into the bedroom for some shut-eye and dreaming.
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
2 tbsp. milk
3/4 cup oil
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

Here I am artsied up thanks to Fun Photo Box. MOL….It is unique mom. Thank you for the straw sun hat Ellen….just what I needed to avoid the ditzy bug.
Someone dropped over to see us today. We haven’t seen much of him since he’s found the, *The Joys of Hunting* and has been practicing over at the falling down house. Gee, Cow Kitty doesn’t look like he’s been suffering any in the past few months. The catnip has dropped many seeds and this is what Cow Kitty is laying on. I feel much better mom…anymore of those tasty treats? What do you mean? I don’t make a pig of myself! I’m dainty and delicate. Ya, right! Delicate and dainty as a moose. MOL
Sunday is selfie day and The Cat On My Head is once again hosting Sunday Selfie which is a blog hop so hop over there to put your selfie in the blog hop or just laugh…peer at your buds.
Ahh…A lazy Sunday afternoon…feels good to scratch and stretch. What’s that noise on the front porch. Hey you….ya, you furry face. What are you doing on my porch?
Sorry sir but this house looks familiar. Of course its familiar, you pass it everyday and don’t call me sir….I’m a lady cat. Really, I never knew that. Do I live here?
For a shrew’s sake….no way! Do I look like someone you live with? Not really….you would scare me. I’m not scary just emphatic. Geesh….make me feel guilty why don’t you?
You live beside this house. You have no brothers or sisters. Go look at the house next door and it will look very familiar. Thank you sir….I mean madam…um… female kitty. Just get off the porch and go home. Gotcha! Bye!
Who’s ever heard of a cat forgetting where she lives? She’s a kook.
