The Flats

I wanted to share some more photos of my visit with Flat Pete, Flat Anya and a new friend, Flat Greyson.

First, I want to introduce you to my new friend Flat Greyson.  Here he is with his Mom.  Notice I'm cautiously watching over them from above!

Hey Mom....look.....It's Flat Anya and Flat Pete!

Pete and I have a Fish Truck that we bring to a lot of the Scouts events.  We really have fun and work together very well.

Oops.....sorry Pete.....

Chillaxin' with my Flat pals...

OMC....I look like a GIANT!!!!

I really enjoyed visiting with Flat Anya, Flat Pete and Flat Greyson and with Pete and Greyson's Moms.  Our Mom had a great time too.  We hope to visit again soon.

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

Allie did a pretty good job with this one, don't you agree?  She even managed to get her paw down before the flashy box went off.

Photo Hunters, 52 snapshots and Caturday Art

This week's Photo Hunters theme is LAVENDAR and the 52 Snapshots theme is FATHER.

Ellie and Dad love to spend time together.  Ellie loves  snoozing on her FATHER's LAVENDAR shirt!

 Today is also Caturday Cat Art Blog Hop.

Once again we used Pho.to to cartoonize the photo and add a cutout craft frame.  We like the way it turned out.

Shopping around the World and Cat World Domination Day

Once again we're pawticipating in Piglove's Shopping Around the World
This month we received a suggestion from our friends Reilly and Denny with Cowspotdog. This month we are pricing FIVE items from two different stores for price comparisons in your area.  Now, we are going to make this kind of easy.  FIVE items of your choice in making a meal.  Of course, you can use more than FIVE items to make your meal but you have to price comparison shop FIVE items from TWO different stores.  Got it?  And as always, pictures and recipes are greatly appreciated for our viewing pleasure… and of course licking the computer screen – snorts.  Happy shopping my friends.

Here's the recipe:
Jalapeno Popper Chicken:

3 chicken breasts
a sprinkle of cumin (I used about 1/2 tsp)
a sprinkle of chili powder (I used about 1/2 tsp)
a light sprinkle of salt
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 jalapenos, seeded and chopped (we are wimps so we just used 1 but I recommend 3)
4 oz full fat cream cheese
3/4 cup chicken broth
3 slices of bacon, chopped
1 TBSP chopped fresh cilantro (can use 1 tsp dried but I don't recommend)
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Pan fry the bacon until crisp.  Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon but leave grease.  Sprinkle cumin, chili and salt on each side of chicken breasts and pan fry in the bacon grease until cooked through, flipping half way.  Remove chicken and keep warm.      Throw chopped jalapeno and garlic in pan and cook for approximately 2 minutes over medium heat.  Add chicken broth, scraping and deglazing the leftover yummies in the pan.  Add cream cheese and stir in until melted.  Add shredded cheddar and stir until melted.  Add bacon crumbles and cilantro, stirring through for a minute or so.  Spoon sauce over chicken.  Serves 3

And.here are our five items:

Boneless Chicken Breast:    Publix  $3.32/lb        Winn Dixie  $4.29

Garlic: Publix $3.29/lb                  Winn Dixie  .69 each ($4.14/lb)

Jalapeno Peppers:     Publix   $2.49/lb                                 Winn Dixie  $2.49

Cream Cheese:  Publix....$2.95                             Winn Dixie  $2.99

Graphic is Swanson,we priced store brand.

Chicken Broth:    Publix .95                                    Winn Dixie  .99

What Mom thought was interesting is that so many people think Publix is more expensive and she's  ALWAYS thought the quality was better and the prices are too....guess this proves it!!

Today is also Cat World Domination Day (isn't every day?) which was started by our pal Sparkle before she left for the Bridge.  Summer is continuing it!

Tuxie Tuesday with Cousin Trooper

Yippeee....Mom got to visit Cousin Trooper last week.  She was so happy to see him looking so healthy and happy.   He was a bit shy with Mom but she hopes to go back soon again so he'll be a little more comfy with him.

Mom was so happy to see he's gained his weight back.....

and still has an appreciation for pretty flowers...

But MOST of all, she was thrilled to see how his fur had grown back lush and shiny and full.

Remember THIS post from her last visit and the bare spots he had???  He even lost weight.....

Look at him NOW!!!

He looks GREAT.  It turns out he was allergic to flea bites.  Even though his Mom was doing all she could to keep fleas out, he was getting bites.  They switched to Revolution and now he's doing just fine!!!

We hope you enjoyed seeing Cousin Trooper.  We hope to have him on our blog again soon!
