Cats Enjoy the Show -Guest Blog

A couple of cats from Lancaster PA, Jake and Sadie, are enjoying the show on the TV.

Of course the show is Lion King.

My friend’s sister-in-law is the photographer of her attentive cats! I have permission from her to share her photo but she’s happy to do so anonymously. Thank you.

I thought it was a great pic and needed to be shared.

I’ve seen and posted dogs watching television but never a cat. Here’s a recent post of Penny the Goldendoodle in a gallery of TV watching photos.

Popcorn. Yes or No?

I had no idea that popcorn has been around as long as the following entry says–

“Archaeologists discovered that people have known about popcorn for thousands of years. In Mexico, for example, remnants of popcorn have been found that date circa 3600 BC. Fossil evidence from Peru suggests that corn was popped as early as 4700 BC.” Wikipedia

Kernels popped on stovetop, in a mixture of coconut and olive oil. Lightly salted but unbuttered

Popcorn. Yes or No?

Winter Supper

Steve brought home a container of vegetable soup from Maria Merante’s which a block from his work. To turn it into a main course, I added a can of white cannellini beans, drained.

Added salt to boiling water and cooked a cup of penne pasta.

I placed the cooked pasta in the bowl first, poured the hot soup over and then added some Parmesan cheese.

It was fragrant and hearty on a chilly winter evening. Merante’s : celebrating all things Italian since 1983

Lebkuchen Ice Cream

Three years ago I had my first Lebkuchen Ice Cream at Kiez Eis in Berlin, Germany. Here’s my post of that experience.

I received some Lebkuchen (a soft spiced gingerbread cookie with ground dried fruit and nuts) for Christmas from my sister and daughter.

Last night I chopped two cookies and folded them into softened vanilla ice cream.

I ate a dish of it last night and it tasted good.

But this evening, I had another scoop and after 24 hours in the freezer it was so flavorful, the spices flavoring the ice cream beautifully.
