Poetic Thursday "Z"

Today is Poetic Thursday hosted by our pal Sammy at One Spoiled Cat.


Today's letter is "Z"   You would think this would be a tough one, right?   Nah....we've got this one covered!

Zoralda

Zoralda  you ask....what could that be?
Is it a nom, a toy or a tea?
Is it a game?
Is it a name?
Is a Zoralda a new place to go?
Or is it a new plant to grow?
Is Zoralda a store?
Or a Cat Scout style s'more?
Is a Zoralda cute?
Or is it a hoot?
Well dear friends,
Here the mystery ends.
Zoralda, you see,
is our sweet ALLIE!!!

Did we fool you?   Yes, our sweet Allie's "official" name is Zoralda!!!




We can't wait to see the other "Z" poems today!!  We're also using this as our Thankful Thursday post since Allie is very THANKFUL for her sweet husband Mauricio from The Cat On My Head.

Time Traveling Tuesday

We are participating in Bionic Basil's  World-Wide Tour of the Time-Travelling Bobble Hat!  Click HERE to read about it on Basil's Blog



From Basil's Blog:

Parsley & Smoochie will purrsonally donate £2.00 [£1.00.each] to the Burton Joyce Cat Rescue in Nottingham, U.K. - where most of us came from before we were adopted and began a beautiful new life in Sleepy Hollow with a cat-inspired writer, aka our Purrsonal Assistant, Cathrine Garnell. 

  So the more places the bobble hat goes, the more money we raise... it's all in your paws!

Wearing the hat is not required, you can just write something.....obviously OUR Mom didn't read that part or chose not to pay attention to it.   So...............here we are wearing the Time-Traveling Bobble Hat!!!

First we have Ellie.....

Ellie says she hopes Santa sees this and gives her extra presents for being a good girl and not looking at mad as she was posing nicely.

Next we have the big goof....um....we mean Raz....


Mom....are you SURE this is what the stylish Mancats are wearing this season???

Last, but not least, we have Allie....

Oh gosh....I hope Mau doesn't laugh when he sees this......


Okay Mom....we're done...........now where are the TREATS??????????


Thanks to Bionic Basil for letting us participate in this fun event!!   Mom was impurressed that she got ANY photos of us wearing the hat but we all cooperated (sort of).  The hat will be leaving us for the Tabbies of Trout Towne and then on to 15andmeowing.

Sunday Selfies with Ellie

We're pawticipating in The Cat on My Head's Sunday Selfies today.



I worked really hard on my selfie today.  I didn't want to use the flash but it was dark so I had to.  I like to hang out with the cat nativity set....


HEY.....what is SHE doing here???


Mom wants you to know that we have a lot of poinsettias in the house but they are ALL FAKE!

Come Fly With Me - Flying with Sammy

Today is the Come Fly with Me Blog hope for our special friend Sammy from One Spoiled Cat.   Sammy is a super friend and we love him a lot.  He's famous for his Tuesday Teaser, Poetic Thursdays, his sense of humor and, of course, his super big paws!!!

We decided to take Sammy on a tour of the Space Coast of Florida where we live.   Sammy has actually been here once before in the Flat.  Here he is in  a photo with Raz, Allie, Madi, Anya and Gracie in a Cat Scouts traveling Flats project.






While he was here in the Flat he expressed a desire to try surfing. He didn't get to try surfing in the Flat but we had a surprise for him.  Pro surfers Damian and CJ Hobgood are from here so they gave him a lesson.....we think Sammy did really well for his first time out.....




After a great morning of surfing, we stopped at Lil Dos - a popular local Mexican restaurant here.   They were thrilled when they heard the famous Sammy was coming!



After lunch, we headed up to the Kennedy Space Center.   We were really impurressed when we saw that they TOO had a welcome sign out for Sammy....

After touring for a while, we headed over to the Atlantis expedition.  The space shuttle Atlantis is homed here.

We spent lots of time looking at Atlantis.....ut oh........SAMMY!   You can't nap up there!!!


We hated to see the day end, but we knew Sammy had other places to visit.  We made one more stop at the beach (we THINK he wanted to get back in the sand!)


  Sammy, we loved having you visit and we love YOU.   You know how much you mean to us.

Goodbye to a Sweet Friend and Poetic Thursday "Y"

First we want to send soft, healing purrs and prayers to the family of our pal Easy.   Easy went over the Bridge yesterday and we are so very sad.  Easy was a great friend and we will miss him a lot.   Click HERE to visit his blog.



Today is Poetic Thursday hosted by our pal Sammy at One Spoiled Cat.


Today's letter is "Y"

YIPPEE by The Florida Furkids

Yippie a word that starts with "Y"
How come we picked it?  You wonder WHY?
Yippee because we love our Dad
Yippee because Florida isn't bad.
Yippee because 17 years ago today
Mom came to Florida to STAY!
They packed her house and furkids too
and down 95 South they flew!
Tamir, Sniffie, Cory, Baschert and Katie 
The truck and van were quite weighty.
Dad drove the U-Haul and pulled the Miata
In the van with Mom, the cats sang a cantata!
Yippee do - Yippie and Yay
We're all thankful for that Day!


Today is also Thankful Thursday sponsored by our pal Brian.  We're thankful that Mom met Dad and that she and those who came before us made the trip here so we could live in here together!

Don't forget the big event for our pal Sammy tomorrow -

Shopping Around the World


Shopping Around the World is hosted by us and our friend Fozziemom.  This month it is scheduled for November 30th - after the holiday so we can all make plans.  Since it is the Thanksgiving holidays here in the States, this month we will focus on Thanksgiving foods.  So, you can post appetizers, side dishes, salads, soups, main entrees or desserts.  What is something that you look forward to once a year at Thanksgiving.  I mean yes we can have it throughout the year but having it at Thanksgiving screams the holiday?  This gives you a wide variety of foods you can come up with.  Fix whatever your dish is, take pictures and post it with recipes and prices on November 30th on your blog.  Remember to link back to my blog posting so people can see yours.  This is a wonderful way to (1) meet new friends in blogville and (2) get some wonderful recipes.  And I'll admit it.  This piggy has been known to visit on these days and lick the computer screen at some of your awesome dishes.  I'm just sayin' - some of pictures look out of this world!!

LOW CARB PECAN PIE

Crust:
1 1/2 cups almond flour
3 Tbsp equivalent sweetener 
1/4 tsp baking soda
4 Tbsp butter, melted


Filling:
1 1/2 cups sweetner
1 Tbsp blackstrap molasses
2 large eggs
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 Tbsp heavy cream
1 Tbsp almond flour
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup halved pecans

Preheat oven 350 F. For the crust, combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the coconut oil and stir to combine. Pour the mixture into a pie pan and pack the mixture along the bottom and up the sides to form a crust.  Bake for 7-8 minutes or until lightly golden.  Reduce oven to 325 F.While the crust is cooling, beat the sweetener, molasses, and eggs until creamy.  Add the remaining ingredients, except for the pecan halves, and beat to combine.  Pour the filling into the pie shell and top with pecan halves.  Bake uncovered for 30 minutes.  Cover loosely with foil and bake for an additional 30 minutes.Best served warm.

I am only pricing the filling since you can really use any crust recipe you have or even use a store bought one if you are not low carb.

Blackstrap Molasses  $2.88/12 ounces
Eggs  $2.19/ dozen
Butter  $5.19/ lb but BOGO so $2.70/lb
Almond Flour  $6.98/ 11 ounces
Heavy Cream  $5.98/ 32 ounces
Pecans - $9.88/1 lb bag

Here's a photo of Mom's pie:

Tasty Tuesday #chewyinfluencer


It's that time again....as part of the #chewyinfluencer product review team we have another tasty item to tell you about!  

This month we were given the opportunity to try Halo Mix'n More food toppers for our pals at Chewy.  We're a little late posting because this month had FIVE Tuesdays!!!  As always, we were not paid for this review but did receive the product free of charge for our honest review.


We wanted to let you know that we tried these in a dish and NOT as a topper because we wanted to show you how we liked it without the taste of our favorite wet foods!

         

From the Chewy website:

DescriptionHalo Mix'n Mores bring a meatier flavor to every meal with their Freeze Dried Salmon & Turkey Cat Food Topper. In fact, there’s more of everything your cat needs, including more whole turkey and salmon, more digestible protein and more freeze-dried nutrients with more natural flavor. That means there’s no room for grains, meals or artificial ingredients. Delicious morsels of meat, poultry or fish are pasteurized at a low temperature, crumbled and then freeze-dried to create this perfect meal topper. These meaty kiblets appeal to every cat’s inherent love of meat and can be added to any bowl of dry or wet food.
Key Benefits

  • Delight and satisfy your cat's inherent and ancestral love of meat by adding flavorful freeze-dried topper to dry or wet food
  • Made with limited ingredients, with whole salmon and turkey as the first ingredients
  • Topping provides highly digestible essential nutrients for optimal health and vitality
  • Delicious morsels of meat, poultry or fish are pasteurized at a low temperature, crumbled and then freeze-dried to create this perfect meal topper and preserve the nutritional value
  • Formulated without artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives for an easy-to-digest topper with wholesome natural flavor
Click HERE to order some for yourself!!!  Thanks to Chewy for the opportunity to review another great product!

Want to hear something else really nice about Chewy?   Mom received this super gift package from them!  In the package she found hot cocoa mix, a mug, a warm knit cap (don't laugh....yes we live in Florida but she'll wear it when she walks!) and a nice scarf!   Thank you Chewy....you really are a fantastic company!!
