One Potato Two Potato

‘ Jean gave us WHAT?  More potatoes? WOW! Potato salad here we come–2 pounds boiled new potatoes until tender, then mashed coarse with chopped sweet onion, cilantro, small bit of grilled red peppers (peeled–no burps, haha) diced fine, lemon juice, mayo, moutarde a l’ancienne (the one with speckles in it), little cornichons (if you like those little pickles) chopped fine, celery hearts, chopped fine, hardboiled eggs (1 or two), chopped fine, a teaspoon or two...

It’s Jean-etic

  Well, if you say so.  But does that mean I am jean-etically deficient if I love attacking papa’s Levis?  I don’t think so.  I think it means I have originality and verve and can play with something other than that silly mouse mama keeps throwing in the air, up and down, up and down.  Doesn’t she KNOW that I KNOW that it’s not REAL? Oy. I much prefer attacking papa’s pants.  Just watch: First...

Pizza Prep

WHOA…I smell pizza cooking!!! I’m outta here… Hey, mama took the advice of a commenter to think about giving me some pizza because she said that kitties love pizza! I’ve never gotten any on Sunday night, only the tomato sauce! Well, actually, not even that because it has a small bit of onion in it and evidently we don’t eat onions, whatever they are. And not much of PLAIN sauce either! BUT, I have to...

Goat Grudge

Today the sun is out so I’m having a BALL, haha. Well, you might remember that mama put a goat site on MY blog one day, and I have to admit they were pretty cute, even really beautiful with their lovely sweet faces (what does a goat have–face, muzzle, mug, goat-ee?) so I thought I’d put in a funny about goats that mama found in the French newspaper.  The man is saying, “Next time, just...

Tomato Truth

Hey, you remember that just a few weeks ago mama was lamenting her loss of tomato seedlings and saying that nothing was growing properly and then she’d tear her hair and wail, “NO TOMATOES THIS YEAR–wah, wah” and all those things she said about having an empty garden for the first time in her life?  Remember that? Well–what do you think THESE are? Tennis balls? (And while we’re on the subject, wasn’t it great to...

A Chat (haha, get it?)From Collioure

Here’s what I think of that humongous thang on the sea that blocked the horizon the other day. But how lovely is this little sailing ship.  Nice lines, huh, and romantical looking.  All the passengers probably look like The Great Gatsby, whoever he was. Big improvement over that monstrosity, no? And hundreds of tourist anthros are actually swimming now in the warm-ish waters, as you see. Mama put in that  -ish…she likse bathtub temps after...

Home Stretch

OH, boy, a good morning stretch starts the day off so well.  I think stretching is really the best thing a kitty can do to start working on the roly poly parts, don’t you?  And make your anthro do them, too.  In my case, mama is the one who…er…sort of agreed with the V-E-T about my figgah…. Next, try letting out a big energy-releasing MYOW!!! Keep your muscles warm by stretching under some sort of...

Garden Guru II

Uh, oh, mama’s calling me to take some shots of our neighbor’s masterpiece. BEFORE – Late spring (naturally I did NOT take this today, haha. I have a stash of photos for all occasions). AFTER – NOW! THE GURU Well, I know you’ve seen this spectacular garden in other blogs, but each year is a marvel and it’s what I gaze at all day long, watching the rondoneles swooping down to get insects that hover...

Raving Ravioli

Hey, I’m just here minding my own business, practicing my rabbit kicks, and I smell something really good being mixed up in the kitchen. Uh, oh, mama’s making ravioli and I guess this was an unplanned Art Shot with her fingers reflected in the pasta maker, haha.  She gave me a tiny piece of dough but it’s not my gig. Now when she puts a little of that ricotta filling in my bowl, that’ll be...

Morning Musings

Okay, okay, which one is the fake Loulou?  Mama went to our open market early the other morning and saw this little critter snoozing at one of the sellers’ booths…this and THESE: Hey, they are awfully cute, no?  And mama actually bought one a few years ago for a friend who couldn’t have a kitty and so now she has a fake one as her little pet and she’s happy as the proverbial clam, whatever...
