Happy weekend everyone! I hope you all had a great week and will have a greater weekend!
My Windows Phone finally got a Instagram app so I’m back on it! Make sure to follow me and say hi, I promise many cat and cauliflower pictures! My userame is pamelaz.
Recipes I shared:
Overnight Blueberry Maple Oatmeal – great for summer.
Braised lettuce – great for leftover lettuce.
White Bean Lentil Garlic Dip – be the favorite person at a party!
Cake Batter Cats – it’s cats and cake batter, does it get better?
Recipes I pinned that I can’t wait to try:
Creamy Garlic Shells – Going to add some vegetables to this, can’t wait
Slow Cooker Meatball Sub – I love a good meatball sub.
Soft Pretzel Tots – Perfect snack for sport watching!
Cake Batter Cinnamon Rolls – Perfect Worlds Combined!
Fun things to share:
VSL: VSL stands for Very Short List. My friend Karyn is a editor at VSL and I love what they’re doing there. They send out emails that are each curated by a different person who shares some favorites. It’s like a Friday Favorites, but not Friday all the time and usually they have really interesting curators. You’re sure to find some hidden gems such as great links, art, food, apps, etc.
Game of Thrones LOL: Someone showed pictures of Game of Thrones characters to their dad and asked him their names. The results are golden. Favorites: Nedder, Lord Buccaneer, King of the Guys.
Dogs Vs Citrus. Dogs are crazy.
Cats Vs Citrus. Cats don’t care.
I’m back and forth with my beloved breakfast sandwich and overnight oatmeal. I love them both so much!
The finale of Game of Thrones happened. Thoughts? I felt kinda underwhelmed. I mean I guess you have to feel that way when the episode before blew your mind and left you mumbling obscenities. Game of Thrones – the best show ever? Possibly. Can you believe we have to wait until April for the next season Agh. Who’s your favorite characters? I really like Jon Snow, Bran, Arya, ok I really like the Starks (or what’s left of them). I also love Tyrion. I love the Hound too. And Hodor wins at everything. Then there’s Jamie who I like alot now too, I hope his friendship (or more?) with Brienne continues. I have high hopes for Gendry too! Tywin is evil but he’s also amazing. Can I say that that Daenerys is boring me, when is something going to go wrong? If you like Game of Thrones I highly recommend this long video where almost the entire cast, George RR Martin, and the directors talk about the show.
Cat Talk, my favorite kind of talk:
This is a hole that a air conditioning tube goes into during the summer. When it’s not inside, Xanadu uses it as a door. She walks through it about 8 times in 10 minutes. She’s very unpractical about it.
Xanadu jumped off the ladder, hoping to make it onto the sea turtle and the tall wall where she could reign over. Unfortunately she overjumped the sea turtle, over the wall and landed on the bed on the other side of the wall. Good job.
We changed the cat’s hard food this week since their beloved Natural Choice brand changed and the ingredients aren’t the same and the reviews aren’t good. So we are easing them into this Purina ONE brand. From the first taste.. it seems to be a hit.
Our friends Lia and Will got engaged although noone was surprised because we all knew they would. So happy for them! So they threw a celebration engagement party.
There was also alot of yummy food here, including marinated pork (mmmm). I brought Cake Batter Squares.
This was all bittersweet though because William and Lia, 2 of our best friends not only got engaged but they also are moving to Seattle today. Weep Weep. I cried last night. I want to be selfish and keep them here because I love them so much, but they are going to do great things in Seattle and I’m really happy with them. But I’m also very sad. You know how it goes. So last night on their last night in NYC we made a rainy dinner at Fu Run in Flushing, Queens, home to some of the most authentic and yummy Chinese food.
After we said our teary goodbyes on our rainy street, we came home and had a rootbeer float to remember all the good times we had with them. And to think of all the good times we will have with them in the future. 🙂
It has rained here so much in the last week which is horrible for pollinating cucumbers, but is great weather for the broccoli, cauliflower, kale, cabbage, etc. Even in the rain we harvested some cauliflower.
We did a video for Snapple to recreate one of their facts: Fact #685: Dogs can make about 10 sounds, cats make about 100. It went live last week and we were super excited to share it. Snapple has some great behind the scenes pictures up here too.
We’ve been sharing some experiment videos on Vine this week:
So that’s the weekly round up! Let me know if you’re doing anything fun this weekend.. hope you have a good one! 🙂
