Sparks of Happiness

Hey Tyebe, what’s this supposed to be?  Budd, it’s mice in cheese.   It don’t look like no cheese I’ve ever seen.  You have to use your imagination, Budd.                                                   

The mice are comin’ out of the cheese but don’t get your face too close or the mice will poke you in the eye.  Mean little boogers, aren’t they?  Mol *hic*  The mice keep us on our claws so we pay attention to our game.  I’d rather have real mice and cheese.

What’re you two scallywags doing?                                            

Tyebe’s teaching me the joys of plastic cheese and mean mice.  She says I can’t eat the cheese and the mice will peck my eye out if I get too close.  Really Tyebe, this is not fun!

You wanna play with me’s pepper, Budd?                                                      

Whacha do with a pepper, Tyebe? I’s play with it, throw it in the air and catch it.  Does it taste good? Tastes like my spit. Ohhhh…you can have it then.

Let’s think positive Budd.  It’s a Sparks Monday today and we all need a boost to start the week.  Annie of McGuffy’s Reader started Sparks and even though she is taking a break right now, we decided to light a candle and show some people the way into a fine Monday.                                                                   

There you are….happiness. A great way to light up the day.

Shopping Around the World with Shoko and Kali

This month Bacon of PIglove fame wants a dessert.                                                    Mom and dad are not usually dessert peeps but mom found a recipe for Peach Ginger Compote that only takes 15 minutes to make and it is so simple I’d bet ya that if mom screws it up…..I’ll eat frog spit!  You got a deal Shoko and I know just the frog whose spit you can eat.

K, let’s get busy mom. There are mouses to catch and snakes to attack.

PEACH GINGER COMPOTE

Serves 8
Prep time 5 min.
Cook Time 15 min

INGREDIENTS:

2 cans Del Monte Sliced Peaches in heavy syrup( there is no heavy syrup in this town) or whole cling peaches, not drained.

 540 ml. in light juice syrup $2.88                                                             

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

1Kg $1.87

1/4 cup cider vinegar

500 ml. $1.47                                                        

2 tblsps minced fresh ginger

$0.99 for 75 grams.                                                    

                                                           

DIRECTIONS:

Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan.  Bring to a boil over high heat.  Reduce heat to medium-high and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until liquid is slightly thickened and fruit begins to break apart.

Remove from heat and let cool slightly.  Using a potato masher, carefully mash peaches to desired texture.  Serve warm or at room temperature.                                                      

Mom has never cooked a Compote before and didn’t know you need something to put the Compote on like a shortcake or pound cake.  Dad was not impressed but ate it by itself anyway.  He liked it and is going to make pancakes for breakfast so he can put the Compote on.  If you noticed mom threw in a few raisins for eyes….many eyes. MOL                                                         

So, to clarify, this is an excellent topping for shortcakes, pancakes, French Toast or anything plain that needs some zip.  Definitely, not by itself.                                                   

You finished mom?  Thanks for stopping by for our Shopping Around the World.  Let’s play snake mom.                                 

Remember to have some shortcake for the Compote.

A November To Remember

A lovely day today.  The sun is playing across the sky but the wind is strong and quite fresh.  A lovely day for a stroll.

November and we can actually walk on the sidewalks without slippin’ in the snow.  Can life be any better than this?  Look, our Alpine Willy Clematis is mixed up and there are a few blossoms.                                                                  aaalpwilcrzmA blossom in November. Never seen this before.

Mom and I are headed to the nearest pet store.  It’s a very windy day and the wind is making my coat stand up.  Refreshing!!

aakalistroll♫ Rolling around in my auto wheels.  My pink Fur-ari.♫

Mom was getting tired pushing against the wind.  We stopped at the new industrial development and mom relaxed.

aakalismstFrom Gateway we went into the pet store.  No pictures here.  They gave me some kitties treats.  I was famished and grabbed onto one.  Immediately I spit it out.  Ewwww…it was gross.  Don’t ever buy these mom….awful.  Mom asked what they were.  The clerk said those were freeze dried chicken livers.  We won’t be getting those anytime soon.

Mom got a few Christmas presents and we were out of there.

I settled down after those yucky treats and we headed home.  As we got closer to the house, mom and I heard some hammering and sawing coming from the garage.  Dad was hard at work building something.                                                                        aackhome1What is it dad?  It’s going to be a house for Cow Kitty so he can stay warm during the winter.

What if he doesn’t like it and won’t go near it….what will we do?  Let’s try him with it first Shoko.

aackhousecrThis is where the house will stay for the winter.  Here comes Cow Kitty.                                                             aackhousezm

I think he likes it.                                                                            aackhomeSo far so good.  I can’t think of something for the door….we need warmth in the house but not to frighten Cow Kitty or make him feel trapped.  Should we have clear plastic, a towel or something else.  Please we would like your ideas of how to improve the house.

Busy day today.

May your boyfriend never hiss and tell.
