Sunday Happenings

 

Hey, this Saturday is so warm!  The weatherman says +6C….toasty.                                             

My spidey senses tell me there is another pair of paws wandering around the house. Could it be, yes it’s gotta be the white tornado!

It’s not me Shoks…I’m grabbing a few winks before you get in my face again. I don’t get in your face! I strategically place myself in a position where you can’t miss seeing me. Like I said…in my face. Whatever!

Wonder what this racket could be.  It seems to be coming from the bedroom.  As any good guard cat, I must uncover this mystery.                                            

Oh no, we had forgotten bout Elfin John!  Go away and leave me alone.  You bugged me til Crisp Mouse last year.  I’m taking a nap in my pillow tent.                                                 

No, no….I meant ALONE!  I don’t want to sleep with you.                                                 

Geez, you don’t have to bow to me…I would never hurt you little Elfin. You seem like one of the good Christmas elves.

I’m flyin! hehe,  I’m free.

I

I caught a fish for Shoko. She’ll be so impressed.  For me?  Thanks, Elfin J.

How bout if you do the Sunday Selfie with me, Elfin John?  You like that idea.  First, we must thank The Cat On My Head for holding this blog hop for so long.  Furries….please drop by and visit us in our slot on the blog hop.  Simply click on the blog hop name and *poof* you’re there.                                                      

*Click* Ya, you got us Elfin J but its kinda obvious you took the picture….next time look as if you are doing nothing.

 

Have a great day, friends.                                              

 

Shopping and Cooking Around the World

 

Bacon, of Piglove,  is having his Shopping Around the World blog hop today and we thought we would honour him by cooking a snack with no meat.  Teddy of Two Spoiled Cats is the guest host for this month so we applaud Teddy for taking on the duty.  *apaws* *apaws*  We decided this was a great idea.                                                  Our snack is a warm and a fun food….no cares, no worries.  The only things that lost their lives ….oh, oh!  What Shoks?  What did YOU do wrong?  This snack has meat….bacon to be exact.  How could you Shoko…..poor Bacon…you’re cooking him!  The poor guy.  I feel terrible Kali.  You should…maybe we can get around it.  We’ll call it, um, nocab.  Gotcha!

Today we are making CHEESE AND NOCAB-STUFFED PEPPERS  This is a snack you can make and cook in 30 seconds…I mean minutes, 30 minutes.  Mom can make it up quickly cause dad keeps eating them.  So she’s getting lots of practice.

INGREDIENTS

10 jalapeno or banana peppers…$0.27 each fresh
2 slices of nocab….$5.28…500 grams No Name
3 tablespoons cream cheese…$2,88 No Name
2 tablespoons of fresh mint…$1.98 President’s Choice

DIRECTIONS

Seed peppers. Cook nocab slices until crispy. Finely chop or rip them up. Stir cream cheese with chopped mint. Stuff peppers with cream cheese mixture and top with nocab pieces. Broil on a baking sheet for 2 to 3 minutes.

                                                  You could have softened the cream cheese Shoko, crap!  My paws are getting cramps and I broke a nail.

 

This is it for the recipe.  You will notice mom has more than 3 tablespoons of cream cheese…this is because she’s cheating and adding more cream cheese with green onions and nocab…a little summer savoury for additional flavour.  I urge you to first try the recipe and then experiment.

The peppers are from our garden and so different sizes.

Hope you enjoy our snacks.

Have a memorable day…meow it up!                                                     

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.

I’m going to do ALL the fill-Ins this week, Kali.  15 and Meowing and McGuffy’s Reader supply the 4 statements every week….different statements I should say.                                                                  Pop in and visit our hosts to see what they have to say.

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE

 

1. My favorite thing on my daily to-do list is…..TO CHECK MY VEGGIE GARDEN.  IT GIVES ME A THRILL TO SEE WHAT MY FERTILIZING DID FOR THESE CROPS.  JUST TO THINK I GREW THESE OUTSTANDING VEGGIES WITH MY OWN TWO PAWS.                                                                        

 

2. My least favorite thing on my daily to-do list is…..TO CHASE ALL THE INTRUDERS OUTTA THE NIP PATCH.  I’M BASICALLY A PACIFIST AT HEART. YA, RIGHT SHOKO!  THESE FRIENDS HAVEN’T BEEN PARTAKING OF THE NIP AND DON’T BELIEVE YOU’RE A PACIFIST.  I’M CUT TO THE QUICK, KALI! SURE YOU ARE, TWINKLE HEAD,….WHAT A DRAMA QUEEN!                                                                    YOU DON’T SEEM TO SCARE COW KITTY AT ALL.

I’LL DO THE LAST TWO SHOKO.  BOSSY RED HEADS!

3. I could really do without …..SHARING!  IT’S HIGHLY OVERRATED.  I GET NO WARM FEELING FROM SHARING MY TOYS WITH COW KITTY.  ACTUALLY I THINK THESE IDEAS COME FROM COMMIES AND IT’S A PLOT TO BREAK OUR WILL.

Friday’s Fantabulously Friendly Fill-Ins

Ellen from 15 and Meowing and Annie from McGuffy’s Reader have given us four sentences to fill in with the way we see things.  We plan to take turns and let you know how we feel.                                                                               SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI……ORANGE

A law I would like to see passed is…….a law making Catnip, British Columbia’s national plant.  Then give every cat here, their very own plant.                                                                                Life as it is today.

 

2. My favorite card game is…..Go Fish…I love fishing.  I f I could catch a salmon….I’d be set for life.                                                                     We’re waiting patiently for the fish to drop from the sky.  Mom says that the mama fish drops a whole pile of eggs and then they hatch.  C’mon a whole bunch of eggs drop into the pool.  We’re waiting. MOL                                                                      Ok Kali my turn..you go rest your paws.

3. With Summer unofficially here, …...planting the veggie garden is a must as the weather is warm so the plants will sprout ahead when the rains come.
                                                                                                
Here I am in the pea patch last year.  Such a peaceful place to sleep.
4. A favourite Summer memory is……catching mice over at the retired mechanic’s backyard.  I can sleep under the vehicles. or stalk mice.  His backyard is way more fun than ours.
                                                                       
   There you have it my friends.  This was cool so thanks to Ellen and Anna for this opportunity.  
                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

 

Normandy/Omaha Beach….A piece of History

To read about mom and dad’s first meeting with Phenny and his family click on Easy’s Blog.

The next day these five didn’t waste time but got into Phenny’s Elephant Skate and for an elephant it was one compact elephant and they headed toward the Atlantic,  It was a long ride of about three hours.  Mom wasn’t used to sitting for so long anymore and kept getting sleepy.  Phenny helped with that…he told her things about his mom and dad that had mom wide awake.  He said his mom was renting herself out as a part-time carpenter and her dad was taking dancing lessons.  Mom was fascinated.  Is mom ever gullible!  Geesh! MOL                                                      They all arrived safely in Normandy  The little house we were renting was a beauty.                                                                             There were even 3 bedrooms so we could um and awe about which room we could have.

Unpacked we headed for Omaha Beach.                                                         This quaint house marked the start of Omaha Beach.                                                                      The only words mom understood were Omaha Beach,  camping and tennis.

While waiting mom sat on the Oceanic Kayaks.  She got up, heard a snap and landed on her face like a sack of hammers.                                                              That was a boo boo and she was determined though the knee hurt, it would not slow her down…ya right!  She never got down to Omaha Beach to find a used shell for a remembrance.  It’s probably against the law anyway.

Katty and mom made their recipe for Shopping Around The World….Salmon fish cakes.                                                                         Phenny was an enormous help.  If you want to read the Salmon Fish Cake Recipe….just click on the name.

We all decided to visit the Canadian cemetery and leave a couple of Canadian flags and candles with covers to guard against the rain.                                                                       

Phenny and Flat Shoko left their blessings for those that had fought for their freedom.

Thank you fellow Canadians…your efforts are so appreciated.  I wonder if cats helped the men like in World War 1?

Mr. Phenny’s dad  took mom and dad for a drive through Normandy for a look at the different architecture of the houses.                                                                  Mom says this big house looks very official so perhaps its being used as a museum.

Too soon it was time to go back to Paris and catch the train.  They left early and arrived in Paris around noonish.  Mom was very overcome saying good bye to Katty and Phenny.  Phenny’s dad helped carry suitcases into the station.                                                                         Mom and dad thank you so much for the unforgettable visit with such fabulous peeps and of course, the one and only Da Phenny.

It was time to get on the Eurostar train and head for London from Gare du Nord.                                                                          The Eurostar goes 200 MPH.  It took about 2 hours to fly the rails to London.  They spent a total of 20 minutes in the Chunnel.                                                                            Mom and dads last view of Paris from the rails.  Isn’t this the Metro mom?

Next installment mom and dad set their paws on  London cement.
