Mother’s Day Selfie

It’s Mother’s Day and also Selfie Sunday blog hop with our host The Cat on My Head.                                                                                    You want me to do a selfie now….LIKE RIGHT NOW!  Do you see, I climbed the arbor even with my out of shape bod. MOL                                                                            I climbed up the lattice like steps.

Alright, alright…say TREATS….There, this is a good one, mom.  Don’t I look nonchalant.

Kali and I got mom some lovely flowers for Mother’s Day.  Dad picked them up for us.  We sold some of our furs on ebay.  There was a big demand for Kali’s fur but not mine.  I was hurt.  Nobody seemed to want my two toned fur.  Turns out Kali did very well and paid for most of the flowers herself.  She even has lots of fur left.

Kali said she wanted to pose with the flowers.                                                                                 These are very pretty.                                                                 What beautiful colors.

               I’m going to sneeze…au…au choo!

           I’m out of here!

Everyone take a gander at your friends posing for their selfies.  Simply click on The Cat On My Head and you will be swept to their house.

Be sure and give your mom or dad big hugs and cuddle lots tomorrow to show them how much you love them.                                                                            

 

 

Gimme Beads and Fancy Things

SHOKO…..BLACK

KALI…..ORANGE

Yesterday was Fat Tuesday, a French Catholic tradition that celebrates debauchery before Lent begins with Ash Wednesday for Christians. The festival date varies from city to city, but most Americans base their celebration of Mardi Gras off of the famous celebration in New Orleans.                                                                                  mardimaskKali do you remember when mom and dad went to New Orleans?  Oh ya, they had fun.  So did we…MOL,  Dai$y of databbiesotrouttowne was a riot.  The trout she brought to the party was so delicious and big.  This was the first time we tasted trout, where has it been all our life?

Mom and dad went south right after Mardi Gras two years ago..  Mom brought us back some beads that were hanging on the trees.                                                                            shoko-with-mardi-gras-beads

Cow Kitty decided to visit us and spread….well some joy.                                                               cowkittysmmA little bit of the feather is too much to resist for Cow Kitty.                                                                       cowkittyfeathersmOnce I discovered Cow Kitty playing with MY feather toy, I showed him my teeth and he decided to leave.  He went over to the caging around the buried nip and proceeded to do a little dance.                                                                       cowkittynipsm

Shopping Around The World

Here it is time for Shopping Around The World brought to you  by Piglove and Fozziemum.

Shopping Around the World

The challenge this month was to price 5 different items in 2 grocery stores and then make some dish with these items.  So here goes my friends:

These are the items:

Superstore                                        Save On

new potatoes                             $ 0.98 Lb.                                     no new potatoes

large eggs                                    $2.47 doz                                    $2.99 doz

celery                                            $1.77                                           $0.89

green onions                                $0.77                                          $0.99

Hellman’s Mayo                           $3.89  750 ml.                           $4.49 750 ml

I made Potato salad for two.  Romantic eh?

Boil 6 of the new potatoes.  Cool them down as they will be too hot to handle.Cut up  potatoes in wedges small enough to get in your mouth.  These are the size of new potatoes dug up in mid July around here.  Chop about 1 stalk of celery into potatoes.  Slice thinly or you’ll choke on them.    While you are busy chopping, turn on the stove with your third arm, bring an egg to the boil…..the egg is still wearing its shell.  We’ll undress it later. Meanwhile with this third arm slice some green onions so they look pretty in the mixture.   Once the egg has just come to the boil, turn off the stove and let the egg sit….stewing in it’s own water for 20 minutes.  You should have finished chopping by now, if you haven’t, you’ll just have to grow a fourth arm as when the 20 minutes are up, plunge the egg into ice cold water.  We’re going to try and shock him out of his shell.  If, he’s still in his shell when the egg cools, you’ll have to manually pull his shell off.  He won’t scream so all should be quiet.  The sooner you pull the shell off the easier it is suppose to be both for the egg and you….that’s what, “The Science of Cooking” says anywho.  Now the egg is free.  Now that he is free lets slowly cut him up.  Do I have you feeling sorry for the egg?  Good.  You should feel some compassion as you dive into your salad.  Lastly. add your mayo.  Add whatever amount is tasty to you.  Voila…your potato salad.

The potato salad probably costs about$1…depending on the poundage of mayo you use.  I have many herbs that I will add so that the basic potato salad recipe tastes delish and different each time.

If you want more in your potato salad….try different items such as grated cheese, bacon, (sorry Bacon…this is turkey bacon…ya right)pickles, olives, garlic…..anything you can dream up that would go nicely.
