Photo quiz: what is crazy cat up to now?

Splashing in the kitchen is always worrisome, so looked over and there was Meep balancing his front paws on the edge of the dogs’ water dish, putting in first one paw, then the other – repeatedly.  Once he walked (stalked?) away I got up and checked the bowl – nasty lint and other crap on the bottom.  He was giving himself a foot bath at the dogs’ expense!

clearance chicken dish the first

First chicken actually went into the pot for soup, but it’s on the back porch and has to finish cooking (ran out of veggies yesterday).  Here’s the chicken dish that used up those veggies – a Mediterranean herb blend with a touch of dry red wine, cooked for a couple of hours in a low oven.  Onions, carrots, celery; mashed potatoes later.  Looks much better in person, not washed out (looks warmer on the phone, too).  Such a bad photographer I should get a job at the DMV.

1/17/21 inserts: SS & RMN (I forgot)

We got two inserts in this week’s paper (1/17), but I forgot all about posting the coupons 🙂  If you’re still on the fence about picking up one or multiples (please wait until Monday for DT), check them out.  Remember not all papers carry the same coupons or values.

this village is weird

I always say three flakes in the air means snowplows will be out, not so much plowing as resurfacing – asphalt dermabrasion.  Truck just backed down the street and is playing the waiting game.  Not complaining, mind you, because I’ve seen pictures of Chicago streets where being snowed in is a literal term.  Considering I only have three houses on each side of my street, it’s actually pretty awesome.

All the News that Fits: Covid Chapter

So this must be how coupon disputes escalate in the age of COVID-19.

A Florida man said to be angry he was unable to use a coupon for fish fingers, has been arrested for assault and other offenses, after he allegedly pulled down his face mask and coughed in a fellow customer’s face before storming out of the store.  Actually, he did more than cough, so be careful of those security cameras!  Here’s the entire article from Coupons in the News.

The Duke and I has been ramped up

Oh my, turn up the fan!  I’d read about the Netflix Bridgerton series ad nauseam, so read the first book in the series, The Duke and I, upon which the series is based.  Pita and I just watched the first episode and let me tell you, there’s a lot of artistic license going around here.  Sets and costumes are beautiful (think BBC), but so many additional characters and naked butts it’s rather startling 🙂 Startling, but not unwelcome, if you catch my meaning …

what *isn’t* the Goddess making?

Yup, Pita bought a couple of spaghetti squash and since I’d always heard how similar it was to pasta, decided to give it a shot.  By the time you bake (well, that’s the easy part) the squash, let it cool and fork it out, you’ve earned a pint of ice cream.  Tastes fine, but it’s squash and no one should have to work this hard for a vegetable, imo.  Told her to stick to acorn squash if she gets a hankering.  Or maybe I’ll do something savory with those cans of pumpkin puree in the basement…
