Athena’s Caturday Fart…oops Art

I’ll pose for the Saturday Art Shoko.  My fur feels soft and mom’s been combing my furs until it’s silky.

You know what else is silky?  Frogs feel silky.  I don’t think so fur face!  You slept too long this afternoon.  You’re not quite right yet.  Go back to bed and try getting up again.  Sounds like a plan.  *Shoko pads off to bed.*

Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty is having her Caturday Art so we got out the picture and applied Lunapic’s Fairy Art to the picture.                                                           Here I sit combing my lovely white locks.  You can never be too neat.                                                            This is the Fairy art,  I like it, my furs are beautiful!                                                  Then mom just HAD to add a border from Pizap.  I prefer the one of just me what do you think?                                                      

Caturday Artsy, Fartsy Gimme Your Heartsy Art by Shoko

It was a snowy day in Siberia…what?  We don’t live in Siberia. well you could’ve fooled me.  It just keeps snowing.  For the love of nip, speaking of which…..where the heck is it.  There must be tons of snow on it.  It will be well protected from the cold weather.

I snuck out with mom to enjoy the air.  We went out onto the deck which was clear.  Mom shoveled the stairs and I whipped down them and discovered snow falling on me so went back on the deck with a quick turnabout.                                        I have a snow face!

Mom decided to use my picture for Athena’s Artsy Caturday.                                                             

To see all the others with their art pictures go to Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s blog Simply click on her name and be swept off your paws.

Now for moi.                                                  
Mom went to Lunapic and chose the Mosaic effect from the famous artworks section of art.
Have a super Caturday friends.

Athena’s Artsy Fartsy Caturday with Shoko

We are joining in on the fun fartsy……I mean artsy Caturday with Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty.                                         

Here is the wonderful and beautiful picture of moi staring out the sliding glass door at the snow pelleting against the glass in the wind.

Now here is the artsified picture.

Eww….it has a couple of claw marks on the cat pole. I didn’t do that! Anyway, mom used the photo editor, “Be Funky.” Also the art effect of Summer. It doesn’t feel any warmer though.                                                            

Athena’s Caturday Artsy Fartsy Tryouts

Here it is the weekend.  Why do we care, Shoko?  We care cause we have commitments like Athena’s Caturday Art.  Athena herself is so creative as is her mom.  We’re just trying to keep up.                                                

Simply click on the picture and hopefully, you’ll be whisked over to Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s place.

Here I am examining the doorknob in our bedroom.  This is an old picture of me when I was debating whether mom should get handle type levers for knobs or keep the ones she had.

We still have the same doorknobs.

Mom chose Lunapic again and the “Famous Artistic Styles.”  She chose  “Flowers.”. It is rather pretty.

Shoko will see you on Sunday Selfies tomorrow my friends.

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.

Shopping In My World- Cooking In Fort Meezer

This month Phenny from Easy Blog is our super host for Shopping Around the World and Phenny says we must make something with gourds.  Mom debated about this.  Should she make cookies, a loaf….what to do?  She finally decided to make up her own recipe.  Give her a minute and she’ll name it.

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE

                                                    Should we both help mom, Kali?  I think so Shoko….this recipe is from whatever she dreams up….perhaps us guiding her would be a good idea.  I’ll be back later Kali, I hear the wind calling my name.  Really, what a wiener head! Humph!  Guess it’s you and me, mom.                                                We will call this dish, “Haunted Squished Squash Head.”  Pretty descriptive, eh?  It is a meal for Halloween.

Let’s get on with this very creative dish.

Haunted Squished Squash Head or (HSSH to save space on paper)

Ingredients:

1 acorn squash
1 pkg Knorr Sidekick Noodles
leftover veggies in the fridge
some frozen peas and corn
1 300g pkg, frozen shrimp

The very first thing to do is get a sharp knife and scoop.  Cut a face in the acorn squash and scoop out the seeds and pulp.                                                  

We’ll rinse and drain the shrimp.                                                  

These shrimp were $6.17 for the package of 300 g. at Real Canadian Superstore.                                                       You want to take your acorn squash and steam the cut faced squash.  The size depends on how many people are having dinner with you.  If there are two, like mom and dad, then a small to medium-sized squash will be plenty.

The acorn squash was $1.99 for one at Superstore.                                                  

Put the squash in a cup of water in the casserole dish and cover with tin foil.  Cook the squash with nothing in it for about an hour at 350F.  It is finished cooking when the meat inside is just slightly tender.

Oops!  Looks like the steaming turned our Harold squash into a Harry the Haggard-Faced Squished Squash.

NO PICTURE!

You want to make up your Sidekick noodles now.  Make them up from the directions on the bag just use about 1/4 C less water.  Mom used the Honey Garlic noodles.                                               

The Knorr Sidekick noodles were $0.97 at Superstore.

To the water for the noodles add whatever produce you have leftover in the fridge….within reason…..no cantaloupe or melon in the pasta, please.   For example, mom had a little left over red and yellow peppers.  So she chopped them into small chunks and there were 5 mushrooms sitting in the fridge so they went into the pasta water too.  The mushrooms and peppers will lose juice which will go into the water, this is why we cut out 1/4C of the water.  Now cook the noodles as per the recipe.You’re going to get a whole bucket of pasta mom….you’ll never get it into the squash.  No way!

I’m back.  I had to teach Mr, Fishie not to swim from me.  I stared at him then smashed his smiling face.  I’ll put him back in the water after I help you.                                                    

 

I’m busy Shoko….sit quietly.  Are you saying I have verbal diarrhea?  No, but I am telling everyone how to make this dish and you’re screwing it up.  Ohh!  Sorry!  *Shh* We start stuffing the cooked squash shell.  The squash takes a fair bit of the noodle filling.

Now that the noodle filling is in place.   Place the squash in the same casserole dish, minus the water, and then in the oven at 350F until it is warmed up about 20 minutes.

When the squash is out of the oven, use a fork and pull some of the noodles through the eye and mouth sockets.  These are worms.  Put some shrimp on the top of the squash head with the tail sticking out.  For effect, pour some cocktail sauce over the shrimp (blood).  Have some blood coming out of the eyes.

There is your Haunted Squished Squash Head.  I was right.  There was enough filling for another Haunted Squished Squash Head tomorrow night.

 

Happy Halloween!
