Gluten Free Menu Swap: Meal Plan Monday and Christmas Kitty Pictures

December 28th, 2008 yum Posted in About Me, Christmas, Gluten Free Menu Swap Monday, Menu, Menu Plan Monday, cat 4 Comments »


Since the DH and I were away on an inpromptu road trip to Yosemite with friends all weekend, I thought that in leiu of a recipe, I would share some pictures of my babies on Christmas. They got a feathery bird toy and a heart shaped catnip toy that made them (especially Neko the smaller one) frolick like kittens. If only it were Christmas for kitties every day! Here’s Neko having just jumped into the box my new boots came in after a toy, looking innocent. Or not.

This week the Gluten-Free menu swap is hosted by Cooking and Uncooking with an intriguing “leftover” theme. I also always enjoy posting my menus with Org Junkie. Don’t forget that Cheryl is temporarily housing the Gluten Free Menu Swap at her blog GF Goodness.

Last week was crazy, and so the menu I had planned didn’t work out except for our Christmas menu, which we followed fastidiously. Let’s try this again!

Menu
Monday: Mexican
Chebe fajitas with refried beans and pepper saute

Tuesday: Salad
Meal-sized Salad with Mexican recipe leftovers and baked tofu strips

Happy Halloween: Pumpkin, Flying Bat, and Scaredy Cat Ra

October 31st, 2007 yum Posted in About Me, Halloween, Holiday, Ra and Neko, cat 9 Comments »

ra3.jpgRa, the executive editor of Book of Yum, would like to wish you a very Happy Halloween. He tried on a variety of costumes, including a fearsome BAT visage and, in line with his orange fur which lends itself nicely to posing as a roly poly pumpkin, a kitty Jack-O-Lantern. But holding that yawn… I mean, bat snarl… just took too much effort. And while the pumpkin thing was cute, he didn’t want you all to think he was just a couch appendage, even if he DOES spend 90% of his life napping on said couch. So, he decided to “dress up” as a sweet, innocent SCAREDY CAT for his costume this year. Pretty good costume, don’t you think?
