Sunday Selfie at Fort Meezer

Kali and I thought we’d show you what our family was doing today.  We spent most of the morning outside….all of us.                                                                Nice day and hardly any smoke.

Dad was outside getting rid of our old fence with a new one.  Him and the neighbour finally agreed on a fence and split the cost.

 Our new fence…look ma no pathways through the fence.  No introoders can come bouncing through the fence now.

A little feathered friend…ya, not a friend of mine….came for a drink.                                                                                   Come have a seat on the railing. *Shoko rubs paws together.*

I gotta admit this guy is tiny.

You can see the old fence in the background.

                                                                 

These are mom’s volunteer, “Love Lies Bleeding.”  They have red peeking out of the top of their heads.

I’m feeling a tad peckish, let’s go inside.                                                               Ya, this is my new place mat that mom brought me back from Paris.  I’m allowed to eat up on the island cause my food is one Kali shouldn’t have.

Hey, mom whatcha doin?  Are you working on your recipe for Shopping Around The World hosted by Bacon, my bro by another mother?

I don’t think the recipe calls for soups this month but I’ll check.  These are our leeks.  I’m going to put in a green pepper that is turning red.  Just for some colour.  Whatever?  I don’t want it.  I don’t eat green food.  We know what grass does so, no thanks….you and dad enjoy.                                                                   It’s also The Cat On my Head’s Selfie Sunday.  This week Kali has the honour.  Pad on over to The Cat on my Head blog and see the furries that have clicked themselves stupid for the bestest selfie. Click on our hostess’s name and drop in. MOL                                                          What?  I just woke up….lemme see,you want me to take my.. *click*…whoops wasn’t quite ready.  MOL                                                                Have a great day my friends.                                                                  

Happy 4th of July America

 

Kali it’s The Fourth of July.  America’s Independence Day.  A great cause for celebration….like our Canada Day.

Buddy and Einstein are coming to take us over to their place for a celebration.  I’m so excited.

                                             Shoko they’re here…*giggle, giggle*

Oh Buddy, you look so spiffy.  Shoko will be here in a moment.

                                                                You are my charmer Einey.

See ya later mom.  Come join us over at Buddy and Einey’s place at Tomcat Commentary by Tim. 

Simply click on Timmy’s name and have some delicious seafood. Yummy!

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?

Fill Her In I say But Make It Friendly Like

 

You got the shovel Kali?  What for Shoko?  Well, we gotta dig a hole to get mom into…..this is going to take a while.  What are you doing with that trowel…we need real shovels that can dig lotsa dirt at one time.  We’ll be digging from now till winter with a trowel.  I don’t like this Shoko….we’ll never get mom to go sit in a hole…..while we throw dirt at her.  Then she’s going to be annoyed and we won’t see treats for some time to come.  Hmm…you got a point ghosty sister of mine.  Let’s just forget it till we have a better plan.                                                                      

Another Fryday with another Fill-In from Ellen of 15 and Meowing and Annie from McGuffy’s Reader.  These two gals think up two sentences each for us to fill in.  The first two are from 15 and Meowing and the last two are from McGuffy’s Reader.  Pretty clever, eh?

I made a fort between the pillows in bed….I’m comfy how bout you?  

1. A recurring dream I have is….. THAT BUDDY VISITS ON A BEAUTIFUL HORSE AND WE GO RIDING IN THE BACK LANE.  OH MY I’M GETTING EXCITED….                                                                    He is gorgeous! Buddy is from  Tomcat Commentary by Tim  Look at those basket eyes…hehehe….I love em so much I could rip some of his furs out to take to my basket and dream of him I.  On second thought we don’t need the horse.  We’d probably use our claws to get up on the horse and the horse would bolt….leaving us on our heads on the ground. MOL

2. Turn…..HYPOALLERGENIC WET FOOD….. into …..DELI ROAST TURKEY….. AND I’D BE A HAPPY CAMPER.                                                                Mom does her best to get me to eat and sometimes I’m absolutely fascinated by the lengths she’ll go to and I absent- mindedly eat the slop.

My turn Kali….I must express myself before I burst. MOL

3. CAPPY-TAN….. is driving me crazy!  He waits outside our door for one of us to come outside,  He even sings to us.  Myself, I think he’s not neutered and is ready to get his MEW off.                                                                          

4. Lately, I have been….HAPPY TO STAY AROUND THE BACKYARD AND INVESTIGATE BUGS IN THE GARDEN……  a stroll is wonderful when the weather is beautiful and warm but when the wind’s howling, the backyard with the six foot fence is the place to play.

                                                                  There you have it my friends, our opinions on today’s fill-ins.

Strictly the views of the occupants of Fort Meezer.

A Surprise Visitor With a First Class Idea

KALI…..ORANGE
PHOEBE….. Green

 

Hi Phoebe!  I haven’t seen you in like forever.  Come to think of it you’ve never been to our place.                                                                              Hey Kali it’s neat here.  Only you and Shoko live here with your mom and dad?   Yep, I like that cause you could get attention immediately if not sooner.  I’d miss Sammy P and a couple of the others though.  It’s a happy place at 15 and Meowing.

Here Phoebe have a Mint Junip.  They are very tasty.  All the ingredients are organic and straight from our garden.                                                              

Mmmm, tasty Kali.  I suppose you’re wondering…what I’m doing here and what do I want.  It has crossed my mind Phoebe.  Everything OK?  Hmm….oh of course everything at home is fine.  I was thinking about us more experienced female felines.  The ones that are 15 and over.  We should have a special place for just us ladies to hang out.  Our interests are different from the young uns’.  I like it Phoebe!  How about a badge that is descriptive of us with member cards?  That sounds good Kali.                                                                                           We look sharp KaliThat’s cause we are Phoebs.                                                                           Here is the member card.  We’ll tell everyone that this is a social group open to any female feline 15 or over.  Mom says anyone that joins, she will make them a hat.  Wow,  your mom must be talented.  Wouldn’t your mom make a hat for members?  Yea, she would make them a hat but nobody would appreciate her effort ….mom doesn’t crochet or sew very well.

Interested in joining ,contact Kali at jeanneil@telus.net or Phoebe at 15 and Meowing.                                                                             

Who cometh To Fort Meezer?

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE

*RING-A- DINGGY* Oh my…the doorbell.  *RING-A- DINGGY*  Tell me what happens Kali…I’m going UTB.

Shoks….it was the mail lady.  What’s this It’s a package Shoko.  Really?  ?  It does say Shoko and Kali on the outside of the envelope.  It’s for ME, little ole ME.  No, it’s for both of us.  Oh look there’s a card…look what it says Shoko.

                                                                             See, it’s actually for my birthday.  Ya, I see.                     

Everything came in a bag with my picture on it.                                                                          You didn’t do justice to this picture mom…you did a yucky job….sorry mom but its true.

Mom and dad got eye covers and a matching bag for their sunglasses.  They were delighted as mom has no place to put her sunglasses except on her head.  The Pouch and eye covers say, “I was in Paris.”  True!

Shoko and I each got a new collar.  I love mine…it matches my furs.  I got a teething ring …MOL and a sock which mom rolled in oregano for me…..it’s a lovely smelly sock.  Mom got a makeup kit with chocolate beauty aids.  If, you notice all the make up is gone….mom ate it.  She said it was very tasty except the eye shadow was chalky tasting. MOL  Mom you’re weird.                                                           

Fee Fie Foo fum…I smell Orega-bum. MOL
