How was your holiday? We celebrated Christmas here, and it was fun. I always love it, because there's always lots of yummy foods here. This is me, waiting patiently by the Christmas tree, waiting to see if Mom got her annual gift of Italian tuna. She did, which meant I got some too. Pumpkin, Muffin and I also ate leftover rock cornish hens, which impressed Pumpkin and Muffin. Mom sure ate a lot (more about that later). By the way, how many cats believe, like me, that drinking Christmas Tree Water, out of the stand, is fabulous?
WCB is being hosted by Samantha and Tigger at their great site The Tuxedo Gang Hideout. Go check them out to see all the rocking kitties. Caturday is at Coats Of Many Colors, The Bad Kitty Cats Festival Of Chaos is at Bad Kitty Cats Journal, and don't forget The Friday Ark. Last, Lawrence Simon is stepping down from hosting Carnival Of Cats, so head over and leave a farewell post to this hard working guy.
Now, here's one thing I don't understand. Why do people waste time making these things? Mom and Grandma Bunty went to Nancy's house and spent hours making them. Mom has hypoglycemia and was so affected by all the candy, Nancy had to serve her an emergency plate of grilled salmon to set her straight. Hmmm, so that's all it takes to get the fancy salmon? Then mom brought the houses back here, where they promptly stunk up the house. Mom said it smelled wonderful, like a gingerbread factory was in the house, but I fail to see how candy houses smell good. Why not make them out of sardines? That's Mom's house on the right, and Grandma Bunty's house on the left.
Mom made oatmeal cookies and these Feet Cookies, filled with dulce de leche. She couldn't find her Christmas cookie cutters, so she used this design instead and told people they honored the Trail Of Tears her ancestors in the Choctaw Tribe made when they were forced to leave Mississippi for Oklahoma, long ago.
Several weeks ago, Mom announced that she would eat sensibly over the holidays. But, by her own admission the other day, she has probably eaten about 3 sticks of butter, from all the cookies, cakes, and bread she's stuffed into her mouth. Today she ate this plate of nachos. I guess the cilantro salsa makes it healthy?
Then she ate these Chili Cheese tamales from the Farmers Market. I would tell you more of the shocking things she's consumed lately, but she just told me I've said enough! God only knows what she will eat over the New Year's holiday. Pray for her.
