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.

 

Valentine’s Day

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE
COW KITTY…..GREEN

Wasn’t Valentines Day fun Kali.  It was a super relaxing day.  That’s right, you had a spa day.  Tell us about it Kali.  The day started off warm and cozy.  It was 10 above today.  After we had breakkie and a quick walk about on the deck….there is still lots of snow. I headed for the spa area in mom’s bedroom.  There I sat in the hot tub that blows steam on my face to smooth and cleanse my snow white furs.                                                                                     kalispaI didn’t want to disturb mom and dad so I had my earphones in while listening to Andy Williams singing, “Moon River.” What a lovely song.  I was mellowing and mewing along when I felt a tap on my shoulder.  I mewed for Shoko to go away……still the tapping got more intense. Soon the taps were hurting.  I popped out my cuke slices and my eyes grew huge as loonies…..there sitting beside the tub was Cow Kitty.  I growled in no uncertain terms to get his skinny spotted butt outta my bathroom and don’t ever come back.  But…..but..Take your butt, butt outta this room.                                                              ckkbath  I am very sorry Miss Kali but I must leave soon and I wanted to play with your favourite mouse but thought I should ask first.  Can I play with it?  Oh my, I feel like the cat that ate the canary….very guilty.  satisfied inside but guilty.  Cow Kitty it is wrong to run into a ladies bedroom for any reason….knock next time and wait to be let in.  Of, course you can play with my mouse….that was very nice to ask.  Woo hoo, thanks Miss Kali.  I won’t bother you again……well today.

How was your spa Kali?  Well aside from Cow Kitty barging it, it was exhilarating You know Shoko I believe Cow Kitty is becoming more of a gentleman.  So he asked  to borrow your mouse?  He sure did.  I was impressed.  That was kind of him to ask, here is the rest of your mouse.  Oh dear…..it has no fur anymore!  The hazards of lending your toys to boy cats, I guess.  So let’s see your manicure Kali.                                                                              aanailsThey’re mauve Kali!  They are very pretty. Thanks Shoko.  I worked hard to get just the right sheen.

Let’s show our friends Einey and Buddy’s Valentine cards to us.

00-valentine-card-shoo-einstein                                                                            00-valentine-card-kali-buddyMom is going to have her mouse protein IV today at the hospital and she is always wiped afterward so she’ll be back with you on-line when she is with it again,  You think she’ll want to run around on the floor so we can chase her Kali?  What a riot that would be…we could run all over her.

What do you get if you try to cross a mouse with a skunk?
Dirty looks from the mouse!  MOL
