SHOKO…..BLACK

KALI……ORANGE

 

Welcome my friends….Have a seat and a Nipitini.  Today is Selfie Sunday with our host The Cat On My Head.  This is a blog hop, so that means we hop from blog to blog and see our friends attempting their own selfies.  Simply click on the blog name and admire your friends.                                                                  catonheadbdI was thinking of summer today.  You know, I really miss playing out in the yard and grabbing a drink out of my wadding pool. *sigh*

I miss laying out on my air mattress grabbing some rays.                                                             aakalimattress1The sun beating down on my back.  Aww….I can feel the warmth soaking into my bones.

Here I am testing the water for a drink.  I was standing in front of mom’s green onions.                                            aamemoriesshokoThis is my selfie memory of summer.

May flowers always line your path
And sunshine light your day

Shopping Around the World In November

cute-kitten-sitting-shopping-cartThanks to Piglove and Fozziemum for providing us a forum to tell everybody our recipes.  Go Bacon!

We are supposed to be cooking up a Thanksgiving side dish but our Thanksgiving was last month, in October.  Mom and dad won’t appreciate anything to do with a turkey so close to Christmas.  The peeps in the States can hack it.  Well, we’re a little different.

So what are we cooking then Shoko?  Mom says she’s making up fish cakes.  How un-Thanksgiving like.  Well, this dish is for a break after all that  turkey.  Most of her ingredients are from the vegetable garden….but not the salmon Shoko.  Too bad, we could be rich if mom could grow fish out in the garden.

What’s that Elfin John doing?  You want to help us?  We don’t need your help, thank you.  I think we should let him help, Shoko.  He may be turning over a new leaf and who are we to stop his progress.  I don’t believe it Kali and now I feel guilty.  Oh, alright,,,,he can help us.

Here is a picture of the ingredients.

Here is a picture of the ingredients mom forgot to show in the first photo.

Now that you’re confused we’ll tell you the ingredients:

1 onion, diced…$.030
1/4 cup shredded carrot…..garden…optional
4 average old potatoes…..garden
1/4 cup green pepper…$0.25
1/4 cup red pepper……$0.25
4 drops Worcester sauce…optional…cupboard
celery leaves….2 tbsps..optional
1/2 cup frozen peas
Sockeye salmon…..150 grams (5.3 ounces)… $5.25

Mom sends to St, Jean’s Cannery for her salmon.  Wonderful tasting salmon.  St. Jean’s Cannery is in the city of Nanaimo where Nanaimo Bars were invented.

We are all ready to get underway.                                                             aashokochef

Fry the peppers, onion,potatoes, dill, fall, nip, Kali, electric, cakes and shredded carrot, until they are just soft. Throw them into the mashed potatoes with Worcester sauce.  Add the dill and all other ingredients.  Your mixture is set to be fried.                                                             aaelfinbowlHey you…Elfin!!!  Get away before you fall in.

Good grief, I need a nip smoothie.  This little guy is getting to me.

aanipdrink2Thank you Kali.

Now, lets get out the electric fry pan.  Turn the temperature to high and spray a bit of oil in the bottom of the pan, about a tbsp.  Shape the cakes into round shapes about the size of a hamburger patty. When these rounds are in the frying pan press them flatter with a spatula. Our fry pan  holds 7 medium fish cakes.                                                                 aafishcakes1

These are the cooking fish cakes.  Mom is not great at flipping them over but she’s the boss.                                                                   aacookfc2There you have it friends.  Now for a sip of my nip smoothie.

What are you doing in my smoothie, you oddball!

aaelfindrinkYuck…I don’t want an elfin smoothie!!

May the food I burn, light your path.

Let’s Look For Them Again

Mom decided we better go look for Bashful again because its going to freeze overnight and even though Sky’s sis is used to this kind of weather, Bashful is not.  So off mom and I went to examine more of the Lane.

We looked into the car man’s junky vehicles.

No sign of them.  Nothing!  We then headed over to the house that’s falling apart.

I think they’re over here mom!  I see some wiggle marks.  I’ll go onto the property here at the falling apart house.                                                                           There they are….in the long grass by the tree!  Be careful mom, you don’t want to step on them.  Let me go and tell them we’re here.  Mom nods to me.

Hi Bashful.  How about if mom gives both of you a ride home in her hand.  Mom, let’s see your hand….Bashful and his friend would like a ride home.  Mom puts her hand down, Bashful and his lady friend hop on.                                                                   Stop mom, let me look.  My, my…..she is quite the looker.  I’ll bet the boy rocks are beating a path to her door.                                                                

Sis, I’m so happy to see you again.  I thought maybe you were lost for good.  I was so scared.  You look so cold sis.  Would you like some oregano to get warm.  Yes, these peeps have oregano.  I know, we’re really lucky.

*yawn* You must be even sleepier than I am sis.  Let’s go to bed and snuggle.                                                             I can’t wake these two just to find out the name of the bigger one.  Don’t you know Bashful?  You were with her for a few days.  She never said her name.  I guess we’ll just have to wait until they wake up.
