Most Popular Food Post's of 2015

Good Morning dear readers,  I wanted to do a recap of the most popular recipes of all time.  I was surprised the breakfast casserole from the year before was still hopping.  I working on new recipes and ideas for this year and will be posting new recipes soon.  So here's the recap.

1.  The Holiday Crockpot Breakfast Casserole truth be told this is my favourite one too.

2.  The Mega Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie-I have a lot of readers who can't take pain meds and this fits the bill.

3.  Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate Blonidies-who doesn't love the tastes of Reese's candy in a brownie

4.  Sinfully Delicious Beef-now who doesn't like comfort food.

5.  Halloween Night Pizza Muffins-Loved this little freezer pleaser

Enjoy relooking at these recipes and if you haven't tried them out your gonna love them.  I'm working on more freezer pleasers and crock pot plus some goodies for the kiddies some come back later.

A Gift From The Sacramento Kings

Good Afternoon everyone, sorry this is late computer was acting up.  I wanted to share some of the photos from the Sacramento Kings delivering the Christmas trees.  I live in an apartment complex for those of us who have health issues and sometimes we get offered some nice programs from organizations. This is just one of the examples a gift of a Christmas tree.  .Some of the photos didn't turn out well and I apologize.  I now have a new favourite Christmas Tree Topper.

                                      Sacto. Kings pr and ticket people getting the trees ready

Frugal Christmas Table Display

Good morning dear readers,  we are back to posting on a regular basis.  I'm feeling much better.  I was able to put some cute and fun things together for the dining room table.  We had some donations in the Apartment office so I pick up some items from there.  I also got some items from the new 99 cent store.  I used some of the snow globes from last year -but be careful some have antifreeze in them and are toxic to cats.  You don't have to spend a lot of money to have a cute table display. I would say this cost me about $3.  Enjoy the festivities.

                                                       This one came from the office too cute.
                                                  This is my new favourite a santa angel.
                                     The glitter ball tree and the santa sign are from 99 cent store.

Frankies Rant-Mother Abandoned Me

Good morning furbuds, I know this is supposed to be wordless Wednesday.  But I had to talk about the heinous crime committed against me by my family especially my mom.  She went to the human vet hospital and stayed all night.  Never a word to me that this could happen.  Yes, I know she has that nerve disease. I used to snooper vise her injections and when she went to the pills I had to sniff them to make sure they were just right.  9 O'clock comes around and I can't find mom.  Her bed is empty I walk around it repeatedly calling for her.  I'm cold and no one has heated up my blanket and my nose is acting up.  I want my steam pot.  Finally boy gets out of bed and gives me my steam pot and blanket but neglects to tell me where mom is at this moment.  She finally comes back the next day late in the day mind you.  She does assess the situation and promises the boys will do better.  Also Santa paws is gonna bring me an insulated heated bed.  I can't wait.  Zen Hugs and Purrs.

Caturday Art-Season's Greetings Kitty

Good Morning dear readers,  Mom as been a little MIA with her blog duties, but I told her we couldn't miss another art hop.  So we did a little Christmas greeting art today and are participating in Athena/Marie's Caturday Art Hop.  We kept it simple just a little editing in picmonkey and some embellishments from pizap.  We had a good Thanksgiving and are ready to begin the holiday festivities.  I can't wait to get my kitty stocking.  Love me some nip, now if mom would just let me have some other treats.  What does your mom and dad do for your gifts?

Happy Thanksgiving

Good Afternoon all, I had to remind mom to post today.  She's been busy in the kitchen with my boys cooking the rest of the meal.  I'm snoopervising from my play roasting pan.  Mom gave it to me years ago because I stay out of her way when she's cooking cause I like to lay in it.  We wanted to wish our readers a Happy Holiday. We are happy to have everyone read our blog and comment cause without readers we wouldn't be here.  For those of you wondering if  I'm going to get any turkey, mom said no cause the fella before me got sick eating people food.  So I got canned turkey cat food.  Not to worry I tried to open a bowl of chocolate chip cookies with my paws. Mom caught me and yelled at me.  Well back to snoopervising Zen Hugs and Purrs.

Caturday Art-Paint Party Kitty

Good morning everyone,  sorry didn't post last weekend.  We had storms and the wifi was just not happening.  Mom was able to get this one done and we are sharing at Caturday Art at Athena/Marie's Art Hop.  We played in our two favourite programs picmonkey and pizap.  Mom always finds new and different ways to make my bad photos into art.  I was playing with boy when mom took these photos.  He loves to tease me but I get in some good licks too.  Mom's getting ready for the Big Bird Cooking day.  Maybe I'll get some or I can steal some when no one's looking.  Have a great weekend and happy good eating.

                                            Used paint and tranquility plus increase exposure

                                                    overlay in pizap and added flowers
