A Special Day

Did you say it was mom and dad’s anniversary today.  Yes, Shoks.  They’ve been married like way too long.  Well, I’ve only been here for 8 years Kali and they were married then.  Were they married when you came here?  Oh yes, they’ve been married for 45 years. Cwap, that long!!  That’s like 3 lifetimes for us catsSo where did they go for dinner.  Mom made reservations at The Twisted Cork.  Let me guess.  There are corks all over the floor  and the servers have twisted personalities.  MOL MOL                                                       aaashokocroppedThey’re home!  Tell us mom what did you have for your special dinner?  OK girls, listen to this.  I had a Caesar Salad tossed with bacon and parmesan cheese.  You must have had more than a salad.  Then I indulged in pan seared Pacific scallops in a saffron cream and topped with red caviar.   Caviar…fish eggs….what were they like?  Very tiny Shoko and not much flavor.                                                               1a1a1aWhat’s the black stuff under the scallops?  I’m ashamed to say I don’t know but it was delicious.  It wasn’t chocolate but what a delicate flavour.

What did dad have?  Dad eats meat like we do…..none of this salad bit for him.  Dad had a New York Steak, thick cut with a house dry rub and six large prawns on top of the steak.  The potato was coated with seasoned bread crumbs and baked.  He also had a vegetable ragout with red peppers, zucchini and broccoli.  That steak makes my mouth water.  You can keep the veggies.



  So the dinner was a success?  Not everything.  We each had sparkling water and it tasted…bad!  It tasted like someone threw baking soda into the water.  Yuck.

How about us mom, we’re getting hungry.  You got any Fancy Feast for us gals?  Sure enough….Make room for the beef girls.                                                                       adone1.

Shopping Around The World



Really, It’s that time already! Piglove and Fozziemum started shopping around the world and Bacon said we should send all prepared snacks to them at the Thompson Hotel.  MOL  Just kidding my friends.  I imagine the ones from us would be hi-u-hum by the time they reached Bacon. MOL    Bacon asked us for snacks or appetizers that turn mom’s crank and gets her all happy inside.  This is embarrassing folks but mom is lazy when it comes to snacks and appetizers for herself.  I could tell you she loves stuffed mushrooms. chicken fingers and bacon wrapped scallops…..and she does but she doesn’t make those for herself.  Instead she makes up  something easy.                                                             chef ShokoHer idea of a fun snack is a concoction of wheat thins, olives and cream cheese.

Multigrain wheat thins $1.97

Stuffed green Olives sliced   $1.97

The crackers, stuffed olives and creamed cheese are not cheap but everything lasts well over a week so its not as expensive as one would think.
Wally!! You mean we don’t say wally…..oh, we say voila! There you have the unvarnished truth about mom and snacks.
