Taking October Off

Mommy and me love Halloween the way some people love Christmas. Unfortunately, we have a party pooper who’s told us they’re going to be hanging around us 24/7 for the last half or so of October, ruining that part of this  awesome month. You guys familiar with Dementors? This person is like a real life version of a Dementor ! While we love doing this blog, under these circumstances we would rather spend the time enjoying the Halloween season as much as possible. Technically, we could blog while this party pooper is around but the blog would definitely suffer. We think our blog will reflect how crappy we will be feeling during that time. This will be our last post until November. Hope you all have a happy Halloween !

Take care everybody !

Tacos Never Tasted So Good !

Sure these were very basic but after these past few days we almost felt like we were having lobster for dinner ! Thanks to what we had at home already, all we had to buy was some taco shells. Needing to buy only the taco shells sure helped stretch what grocery money we had left ! Tomorrow we’re having our first big shopping trip since we were prepping for hurricane Irma. The next recipes we’ll post will be from what we purchased on this shopping trip along with a few things we had at home already. Can’t wait to start posting some tasty recipes again !

Take care everybody !

The Culinary Aftermath Of Hurricane Irma

Well, we’ve tried two dishes now and for your own safety, we’re not posting them ! For those who did not read the post titled “All That Prepping For Nothing, Thank Goodness !” let us give you a short summary. We spent a good chunk of our grocery money to be prepared for hurricane Irma, which left us a little short on money until the end of the month. So to make money stretch, we decided we had to have some of our dinners be made from ingredients we had on hand already along with the canned goods that we bought because of hurricane Irma. We tried out a pasta dish with jarred roasted garlic Alfredo sauce, canned tuna, frozen peas, red pepper flakes and half a box of rotini pasta. It actually didn’t taste bad but the after effects in the bathroom were horrible ! Today we made our hurricane Irma “minestrone”. That involved Campbell’s Chunky Vegetable soup, some corkscrew pasta and canned kidney beans. For the love of all that is good and holy, DO NOT try that recipe ! It was made bearable by sprinkling some lemon-pepper seasoning on the servings. Sure, the lemon-pepper seasoning was all you could taste but it helped the soup get down though. Thank goodness we’re going grocery shopping on Saturday !

Take care everybody !

All That Prepping For Nothing, Thank Goodness !

All we got was basically a bad storm day for us and the power never went out. We’re grateful nothing bad happened. Since we spent so much money on prepping, our food budget is in pretty bad shape until the end of the month. So some of our dinners are going to be “inspired” by the canned goods we bought along with what we had at home already. It won’t be fine cuisine but it will keep us from being hungry. Even though the money is stretched very thing, we wouldn’t do anything different if we had the chance. It was worth it to know that our family (whether they have 4 feet or 2 feet) were going to be okay during the storm and afterwards. Our hearts go out to all of those who were affected by hurricane Irma.

Take care everybody !

2 Feline Houseguests

Boo Boo and his sibling’s parents still hang around our neighborhood, our house in particular. Over time they have come to trust us and we have grown to love them and worry when we don’t see them every day. We would bring them inside permanently if we didn’t have a full house already. Of course, we were worried about their safety outside since we’re suppose to get tropical storm conditions today and tomorrow. So, this morning we got a bedroom ready for them and then took a cat carrier out onto the porch. We put some moist food clear in the back of the carrier hoping that the food would be too tempting for them to resist and then we could shut the door behind them. It worked ! They are staying in a bedroom together, isolated from all our other cats and dog. We feel so much better knowing they are safe during the storm.

Take care everybody !
