Shopping Around the World and a Recipe/Friday Fill Ins

cat-and-cart

Piglove and Fozziemum are having Shopping Around The World today.  Thank you ladies for another intriguing idea.

Well, cwap I say.  This month’s Shopping Around the World snuck up on us.  We are just getting used to playing with some new toys and wham, Phenny’s mom reminded us it’s Shopping Around the World time.  Son of a paper tiger!  So here we sit….unprepared as mom and dad have eaten most of their turkey dinner and fixin’s.  Shall we tell you that Cow Kitty ran away with all mom and dad’s food or the Elf on the Shelf buried our food under a snow bank.   No, none of this happened.                                                              aackkcrzmSo this recipe does not involve Christmas dinner but an appetizer for any time.  This is homemade Cocktail Sauce for those special occasions when you’re serving shellfish.                                                                            aashokochefYou will need ketchup, lemon juice and horseradish.                                                                      aaseafood-cocktailKetchup..French’s 750 ml….$3.99 (Our ketchup is still Heinz so it’s old…they don’t make Heinz ketchup up here in Canada anymore.)

Real Lemon… Lemon Juice….. 150 ml. $1.50

Woodman’s Horseradish…..250 ml……$3.99

You will use just a bit of each.  Most peeps have these items on hand,

INSTRUCTIONS:

Put 3 tbsp of ketchup  into a small dish,  Add 1 tbsp and 1 tsp of horseradish and 1 tsp of lemon juice.  Stir and taste.  If, you want more zip in your sauce add a small amount of horseradish and taste.  Grab a prawn and dress it up with some cocktail sauce.

Memories of a Northern Winter

C’mon Kali, let’s blow this joint.  Why?  It’s nice and cozy in here.  We need the fresh air blowing in our furs.  The wind is terrible.  I want to be warm.  Ok, so it’s cold.  How cold is it, Shoko?  It’s so cold the snowman has rosy cheeks!

Do you remember the time mom was out shovelling off the deck and then came in to have a hot bath?                                                                             aamomsnow

Boy, do I ever. MOL The hot water on her cold butt was not relaxing….she said it was so painful and she was fussing about. MOL. She learned to get herself a little wet with warm water before leaping into a hot tub.  Experience is a great teacher.

You’re too young to remember mom with the old Taurus but she had trouble plugging the car in so dad got her a light that would turn on when the car was plugged in.  You mean sorta like a plug-in for idiots?  MOL…exactly.

Ohhh, what about the time Cow Kitty’s dad left his truck on the street and the snow plough came along and blocked him in.  The snow was deep that year.  It was so funny watching him dig his car out,,,he used words we can’t say…..at least when mom’s looking. MOL

C’mon sis let’s get some air….ok, lead on Shoko.

aakalishoksnowsmI’m going into a nice warm heat register.  It’s too cold for me.  Leave me some room on that warm heat register….I’ll just *sniff*, *sniff* this patch of dirt.    Make room for moi….coming through.                                                             aaakalitoy                                                                    aashoksleepMuch better….I feel like a princess again instead of a pioneer braving the elements.  Not that again, Kali.  Go to sleep.

What’s worse than snowing cats and dogs?

Artsy, Fartsy Day With Kali

Seems like winter was waiting for us this Friday and snow-covered everything and stayed that way.                                                           aabackyardsnowoctIt’s also time for our artsy photo.  So mom used my picture in pho.to editor once again.  I like it and feel this is how I should be treated instead of just giving me the odd treat….instead get all excited when I’m in the room. MOL                                                                 caturdayartbannerAren’t Athena’s eyes the prettiest green you’ve ever seen.                                                               astarkali

Just fly on over to Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty and observe all the anipals showing off their artsy selves.

Artsy, Fartsy Caturday With Kali Posing

Today is our fun Artsy Caturday with our hosts Athena and Marie.   Click on their name and visit more anipals posing just for you. Shoko quietly…ahem,not so quietly, bowed out of Artsy Caturday cause she felt mom gave her  the photo effects that made her look dreadful.  So Shoks has taken her grievance to a new level and  is on strike over mom’s attempts at being an artist.                                                                            ashstrike

So, I will be your model until Shoko has finished being a drama queen over her perceived slight.
Mom used different photo editors until she was all mixed up and didn’t know which one she was using.   She did have some fun with a collage. Notice the collage has snow in it.

Have a great weekend and remember to share some nip with a friend.

Kali and Shoks

Preparing For Valentine’s Day

Hey Kali, what are you gettin’ Buddy for Valentine’s Day?  Gee, Shoks I was planning on making him a gift.  I thought a poem about us and a pretty card would be great.  I don’t know Kali, your creative ventures look like, well, like you made it .  You nap too much. Don’t be rude Shoks, I do my best and Buddy will love knowing I tried  my best and gave him such a unique gift.  No one else will have the gift I’ll give him.  I remember when I met him for the first time at your 7th Gotcha Party Shoks.  I was  so excited and when he spoke to me, I felt like a school girl.

Kali and Buddy done

I could tell Buddy felt the same way about me. He was so strong and handsome laying there with such handsome blue furs.  Shoko how did you and Einstein meet?  Well, Einey and I had known each other for a long time in Cat Scouts and we always had fun together.  Timmy and Einstein were regulars at the pawties in Cat Scouts and our relationship just blossomed from there.  So we were friends first and then we found we were even more attracted to each other.

0 Sadie Hawkins Memory Einstein ShokoWe make such a cute couple.  What a guy I have.  So what are you going to give him Shoko?  Something from the heart or a more elaborate store bought gift.  I wanted to give him a mouse…I found a nest under some snow when the snow started to melt.  How would I get it to him?   He lives in Pennysill-vainia.  Mom says that is very far from here.  I believe mom too.  We have a town named Penny up here but the town and the peeps/cats are not vain.  I never thought of that Shoks but do you think everybody in Pennysill-vainia is vain.  No way is Einey or Buddy vain so I doubt anybody else in the family is…although Miss Fitz might be a tad vain but then she is very pretty so maybe she has reason.  Let’s face it she has so many brothers she deserves a perk now and again.  I’ll have to keep thinking about a gift Kali.  What are your preparations for Valentine’s Day my friends?  Is there someone special in your life?  A cat that has all the right moves.

Selfie Sunday with Kali

What a cwappy day.  The snow is coming down in buckets.   Kali and I wandered out on the deck after brekkie and I think Cow Kitty zipped past heading for under the deck.  It’s gotta be bad if Cow Kitty doesn’t want to be out in the snow.

Mom and I had a rousing game of tunnel.                                       shokotuKali couldn’t be bothered with the game of tunnel after mom told her she was going to be shooting a selfie today.

Kali got all titivated up for her photo, set the timer like a pro and proceeded to clean her claws, muttering that she needed a manipeti.

Kali0The Cat On My Head is hosting Sunday Selfies so just blow over to their blog and enjoy seeing all my friends posing for their selfies.  Unfortunately mom can’t seem to get the link for the selfies.   The link is not showing up and neither are all the selfies and until they do, Kali will be sitting in Canadian Cats ONLY.
