Tyebe Tuesday

Egads, you make a mess, mom.  It’s so messy here, I can’t get on the counter.                                                                 

Hey Budd, there’s no room up here to look for treats. We’s outta luck.

You mean this mess means it’s Christmas. We should have fun if the rest of the house looks as rugged.

So what are you baking for us? What do ya mean…..nothing?

There you have it……we get nothing.  Shoko never liked my cooking and turned her nose up.  I can picture you doing the same.  The only one that would eat it is Budd.  That’s only cause he’d eat anything. mol

We are so lucky to have a mom that tries to play with us….her timing is really off but she tries.

I feel eyeballs watching me.

I know you’re there, mom. You’re one loud sneak.

MOL…..What’s this…..dang feathers all over……come here, you need a good chew.

It is a year today that Easy left us for the Bridge.  That loveable goof of a friend.                                               

I remember visiting him in France and the fun we had.

Here Easy was playing *Ring Around The Ears*.   He was good at it!

We went for a short stroll in Easy’s yard. See how we got along.

We miss you my friend but we have so many memories of you to keep us happy and you will always be in our hearts.                                                   

On Hallowed Eve….

It’s Halloween and I’m ready.  Do you think Juno’s mom hands out treats with catnip on them?                                                     Are you wearing that Shoko….you really do look high-class but bloody?  Einey likes me in this so maybe I will wear it.

Hey, Juno’s parent’s have nothing that we like.  They gave out tiny toothbrushes and toothpaste.                                         Ripoff….be right back Kali and Buddy.

That’s much better.  Holy Shoko!  Where did you get all the toilet paper to drape over Juno’s property?  Remember all that toilet paper mom and dad got last week cause it was cheaper if one buys 87,000 rolls?  Ya.  Well, here they are!                                                  HAPPY HALLOWEEN FRIENDS.

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!
