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.                                                                  

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.

 

Shoko Does Paris

What a weekend…Cat Scouts offered us a trip to Paris. This was done through Sammy’s Travel Group, we left Saturday morning. There were lots of us. Sammy of One Spoiled Cat masterminded the entire trip. I mustn’t forget his skilled crew, Raz of Friends Furever and Gracie of Goodness Gracie

There I am! Right in the middle.

I will only be talking about the things I did as there were so many events and activities on this prized weekend.

Einstein…my guy,and I, had tons of fun from hang gliding off the Eiffel tower to walking around the gorgeous palace at Versailles.
Einstein and Shoko handgliding

We managed to find time to ourselves and walked along this ever so quaint rue in Paree. Einstein and Shoko on a small Paris st

Before we left for the airport to go home…Einstein and I had a picnic along the river.

Our time in Paris was over so we headed to the plane.

We had a ball.
