Today we are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday. We have much to be thankful for these days. Pounce on Brian’s Thankful Thursday badge and click on the site given. We at the Canadian Cats send the Power of the Paw and healing purrs to Brians dad.
We are getting our favourite meals from dad. He gives us snacks on a schedule so every 1pm and 9pm we chow down with special goodies.
The weather is warm and lazy. So we can just sleep anywhere and be happy, as evidenced by Tyebe.
The kitchen is about half finished so we can fish around for treats.
Mom is getting about a little but not out of the house yet. She is still getting IV Therapy of antibiotics at home so the pain is still in the bone. She is in pretty good spirits considering.
I like to visit with mom and tell her about the younguns and how horrible they can be.
If you don’t mind this is a private conversation just between mom and me!
Tyebe are you hiding behind the ferns……well get outta there girl. I’ll chase you around the backyard, cause I’m the monster from the lane. ARRRGGGHH! He’ll never find her in the ferns. She went in the house about an hour ago. Budd fell asleep in the garden and lost track of her. mol Younguns! I think Budd’s bellowing for me but I’m tired so I don’t give a whisker what he wants.
Where is that girl. Ohhhh the bed looks inviting. This is the place for my art.
This is a great place for a mid-afternoon nappy pooh.
Mom used Lunapic Illusion at 53% for this effect. It’s bold but I do stand out.
Come see us at Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty. Better yet jump in and join us with your art of the day.
SHOKO…..BLACK BUDD……….GARDEN GREEN TYEBE………ROYAL BLUE
What do ya mean it’s not a costume party, Tyebe? I’m all dressed up.
Put on a costume Tyebe….join me. I feel silly cause I’m the only one in costume. Who me? You look odd Shoko but I’ll be an oddball like you, my big sis. Can you swing from house to house? I never tried but ya, I think so. Try it. Ohh rats, my swingers not working but I can climb in my basket. Woopee ding, so can I.
Look out, I’m Wonder Wee Kitten or Wee Wee Kit for short. mol How about Budd does he want to join us? No, he’s pretending he doesn’t know us. mol
What a hosehead! Maybe he’ll join in when he realizes we’re not crazy but just fun loving. Yep, guess you’re right.
Meanwhile let’s wish all our friends that so nicely pop in and visit us, a Happy New Year. Sounds good to me Shoko.
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.
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.
Remember to always keep one eye open…..zombies are everywhere.
Kali decided to have the pillow house as it is just that extra bit warmer.
We are so thankful we are inside a nice warm house on a day like today. MOL….looks familiar!
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
