Bring on the Turkey! CK makes stuffing

Hola kitties and Happy Turkey Day! I'll bet many of your humans are spending the morning in the kitchen cooking. Many may have even started earlier in the week like my peeps. TW spent all day yesterday in the kitchen cooking and baking even though she's sick. Since I can't seem to find out when the Blogosphere shopping around the world days are, I figured I'd share my human families stuffing recipe at the end of this post. It doesn't look like much—OK, it looks like slop to me—but the peeps think it's better than turkey.

I'm thankful today for many reasons.

I’m thankful that I can bite Pop without consequences. He might get mad at me for a minute but then he forgives me. TW won’t play for the rest of the day if I bite her. I'm thankful for YOU who follow this blog and leave comments. In addition, here’s what I give thanks for every year: Companion Animal Placement for rescuing me from the kill shelter; TW and Pop for finding me on Petfinder.com and giving me a roof over my head and a place to hang my smousy toys—and for knowing who's the boss around here; Pop not letting TW return me just cos I attack her all the time.

I'm also thankful for my cat food (even if it's not nearly enough); people food (why don't they ever have Omaha steaks or roast beef?), my sharp teeth and soon-to-be-sharp-again claws ("me? I don’t bite"), my furriends and those who follow and interact with me here and on Twitter and Facebook; those who share my posts; Dr. D. cos she never stresses me out too much or over-medicates me; my cat trees (especially the new one), tunnels and toys; the world’s most perfect food, TUNA; Chewy for sending me all kinds of noms to sample and review; the kisses that I get every day (awww) and being a cat (so I don't have to go to work and can sleep all day). Most of all, I'm thankful that I was born THE WORLD'S MOST STUNNING CAT!

For those who've axed, there won't be a 4-lb chocolate turkey this year so I'll share a pic of last year's model. The peeps overdosed on Halloween candy.

Excuse me while I put on my apron and chef's hat. OK, forget the apron.

Bring on the Turkey! CK makes stuffing

You'll need a bunch of apples, a loaf or two of bread, an onion, some celery, a couple of eggs and a whole lot of Bell's poultry seasoning which is made of all good stuff—rosemary, oregano, sage, ginger, marjoram, thyme and pepper. The amount of each ingredient depends on how many you're cooking for. The peeps make a lot cos they like to make sammiches with the leftover turkey and stuffings piled a mile high.

Cut the crust off the bread and soak the bread in water. Wring out the bread and put it in a bowl. Cut the apples into pieces and cook them with the onion and celery in a large skillet. When the onion is clear and the apples mushy, add it to the bread. Add the eggs and the Bell's poultry seasoning—you'll probably want to use at least 3/4 of a box—and mash it all together. Besides making it nice and spicy, the Bell's gives it its color.

Enjoy your turkey and be thankful that you're safe and warm with a roof over your head and food in your dish. Spend some time today thinking about those less fortunate cats and those cats in California burn units. You may want to make a plate of white meat turkey and take it out to those homeless cats near your home.

CK, Olive says that great cats think alike. And you’re right, we don’t eat meat, so can you send Olive some of your turkey? That stuffing sounds yummy! Happy Thanksgiving! We’re thankful to know such a stunning cat.

Oh no! TW is sick? My Mom had to miss the football game for the FIRST TIME because she has a bladder infection and she wants to be ok to go to the family tonight. Also, the doctor prescribed horse pill antibiotics that she is too afraid to take til tomorrow (in case she gets sick)....but Dakota and I are happy she is home with us while Dad is at the game. Your recipe sounds delicious! I am not cooking this year, but when I do I have a cornbread/sausage stuffing recipe that is my "go to" that is to DIE FOR!!
Happy, Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, you KNOW how much we appreciate you! Hoping TW feels better soon! Love, Cody xoxo

Janet Keefe said...

Gosh, you have a darn good life there, CK! We're not sure why you choose to bite the humans (but we're grateful Pops keeps you on board), unless it's maybe just fun? Sam bites us sometimes too, but it seems to just be a love bite....not that we love it. :)
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!!
