Bacon Caturday!

Well, we finally got our bacon dis mornin - it wuz bout time!  And it wuz delishus too.  Angelique got in a lil bit of trubble for attemptin to swipe at my momma's biscuit.  Momma may share her bacon, but she do not share her biscuits.  Course, dat are nuffin compared to da big ol stinky dat Finley left in our room, guess somepup doesn't like havin to do her bizness on da ice.  Hopefully da ice will melt soon so dat won't be an is-shoe.  I don'ts even use da litter box in my room.  Angelique and Crockett do though, but I never does unless it are an emergency.  Ya can't blame me for not wantin to live wif da stench, bacon (and cat food!) don't smell too great da second time round.

Yup, we gots it.  And more has come down since my momma took dis picture.  It's been snowin since 9 AM and is still goin.  Snow Day Bacon?  No, we don't gots dat.  Which I think are just plain nutso.  Maybe not as nutso as Crockett's daddy tryin to go into work today, he was back home at bout 11.  

Momma said dat I wuz gonna get some sossidge tonite since she are makin pizza, so we has no room to complain.

Dat razzberry are what Crockett thinks of my momma and her lameo excooses.

I's waitin for dat sossidge, ya can tell how alert I are.

And pretty lil Angelique are takin a break from nurse duty.  Her momma are still kinda sick, she are not as bad as she wuz, but it must be some kinda nasty flu.  I asked if she wuz sick enuf to where she'd gimme her pizza tonite, but I don't think dat one are gonna work.

Snow Day Bacon!!!

It happened!  Snow Day Bacon!!!  I guess really it are more like Sleet and Ice Day Bacon.  But whatefurs.  Da roads wuz so icy dat da peeps couldn't go anywheres today, so Crockett's momma made a big brunch of pancakes and ya guessed it, BACON!  Well, for all da peeps but Angelique's momma, she are sick wif a cold or da flu or somefin.  It do not sound like fun.

But on to da important stuff, da bacon.  It wuz delishus.  Dere are somefin real speshul bout weekday bacon, probably dat it are a pretty un-yoo-shual thing.  We all got some bacon, yummmm.

Crockett wuz taste-testin da air while da bacon wuz cookin.

I tried to steal some butter too, but I got chased off da counter.  Da peeps are always ruinin my fun.

We's been havin da Major League zoomies - da weather has ben makin us all crazy!  It's been rainin tons and now it are droppin below freezin - looks like da peeps ain't goin anywhere tomorrow since we's sposed to get ice.  Good thing dey went to da store and picked up tons of Fancy Feast today.  And even better dat dere are bacon in da fridge - I'm hopin for some Snow Day bacon!

A couple of y'all asked bout da coffee toffee bars da peeps so rudely refoosed to share.  Here are da recipe:

Coffee Toffee Bars:

1 cup (2 sticks butter)
1 cup brown sugar (firmly packed)
1 tsp. almond extract
2 1/4 cups sifted flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tbsp. instant coffee
6 oz. semisweet chocolate morsels
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven 350º.  Blend together butter, sugar, and almond extract in mixer.  Gradually add instant coffee, flour, baking powder, and salt.  Stir in chocolate morsels and pecans on low speed.  Press dough into a greased 13" x 9" pan.  Bake for approximately 25 minutes.  Top with chocolate glaze.  Cut into bars while still warm.

Chocolate Glaze:

Melt 2 tbsp. butter and 2 oz. unsweetened chocolate.  Mix 4 tbsp. of hot milk with 2 cups sifted confectioner's sugar in medium bowl.  Add a dash of salt.  Pour in the chocolate mixture gradually, stirring until smooth.

Now here's a warning - dese disappear fast (speshully round here).  Da mommas said dey might be doin some more Snow Day Bakin tomorrow too!

Sunday Selfies

Angelique wuzn't in da best mood for her selfie today - I think she wuz a lil tired of dealin wif Crockett's anticks.

Crockett never gets tired of his anticks.  He are even showin off a lil bit of tongue for y'all today.

It are kind of a borin day round here - gray and gloomy.  And no bacon.  So I are just gonna go take a cat nap, hopefully somfin eggcitin will happen round here later!

Thanks Whitley!

I told y'all about how our pupper, Whitley, hasn't been eatin real good.  Well, last night, da mommas decided to try cookin up some chikken livers for her - dey had some in da freezer from back when dey wuz tryin to tempt Maurice to eat.

And ya know who else got dem chikken livers?  Me and Crockett!  Angelique coulda had some, but she wuz not interested - not sure what are wrong wif her taste buds, but I'll eat up dose livers, no problem!!  Anyways, Whitley ate da livers last night, but today she wuz back to refoosin and just lyin down by her food - da peeps bout some udder foods to try to get her to eat at da store - I are hopin I can get some of dem too.  I think I saw some ground pork go in da fridge . . . 

Y'all like our Valentine's bandanas?  Da pupses round here like to wear dere lil dresses and stuff, but da most we gotta wear are bandanas and maybe a hat.  I think we's stylin and ready for Valentine's Day.

By da way momma, ya know what really says "I luv you Travis."  An extra-bacony Caturday, dat's what!

Sunday Selfies

Crockett are lettin just a lil tip of his tongue show today - I guess he figured dat after yesterday's full tongue photo, he'd just tease y'all wif a lil tongue today.

Da peeps didn't head to da bacon store yesterday, but we ended up gettin bacon anyways.  Da peeps like dis speshul maple bacon dat dey can only get at Central Market, and dat place are CRAZY on da weekends.  Anyways, dere wuz three pieces left, which isn't enuf for all of dem.  Speshully when dey gotta share wif "da ravenous cat hoard."  Or yeah, and da barkin westies too.  Well, Whitley, da oldest pupper, has not been eatin real good lately.  It are not somefin I understand, my appetite are always huge.  But she's been refusin to eat.  She's on some Aunty-Bye-Otics now for a hot spot, and da peeps are hopin dat are what are causin her lack of appetite (she's 12 and a half and I know my momma are a lil worried it might be somefin else).  Anyways, da mommas cooked Whitley up a fried egg and some bacon to try to tempt her to eat (it did eventually work).  And since bacon wuz already cookin, all of us kitties got some too.  So da only ones deprived of bacon dis weekend wuz Finley (da udder pupper) and da peeps.

As long as I get mine, I don't care who else are deprived.  Or maybe da right word are depraved, MOL!

Hope ya got some tasty noms today too!
