We got tricked on Monday. It got sunny and hot (for here) - and pretty much has rained since. Leela and Emile took advantage of the newly cleaned windows.
On Monday was also a No-Bake Oreo Cookie recipe:
Accidentally Tuesday ended up with two "secret" ingredient experiments...aka...hidden veggies. I don't really need to hide my veggies but they were new recipes. This is Raw "Secret Veggie" Cheesecake only mine isn't really raw - if nothing else I put in a bit of brown sugar and I am sure that is not.
Sweetening it was a real challenge. When you taste it you don't think it needs anything, but actually a touch of sugar really did make a difference once I finally decided to add some.
This gem is the Mighty Chocolate Microwave Muffin.
I am very new to STUFT Mama's site. What are some of the things I am enjoying about her?
First off, she shamelessly dumps concoctions of food together and actually puts them online (truly, I may have found my match) and her concept of a portion is definitely closer to mine. Case in point...the Mighty Muffin...it was MIGHTY. It was huge.
ALSO she does Flat Kitty Friday (I swear I scan her post more for photos of her cats than her lovely twins). Which apparently has an audience participation option. I jumped right on it. Eventually I would love to do something similar with a small quilt - I love this as a way to see the world through the eyes and creativity of other bloggers.
Flat Kitty Friday is her thing and I will be submitting photos for her by Thursday night, but I couldn't resist a couple of photos last night from trying to introduce him to the family:
Leela naturally was curious. Emile thought his life might be ending (after some rapid pacing he hid under the bed). And Nim wanted to know:
- Why we were still up past 10pm.
- Why he couldn't have the treats I was making.
- Why I insist on putting things on him (to him it is bad enough he has two cats constantly climbing on him).
