Taaa…daaa…Mr. Cheddar’s Meowsings! :-)

Mr. Cheddar is now a published feline! 😉

 

Mr. Cheddar’s Meowsings!

Mr. Cheddar and I are very happy to announce the publication of his first ebook:

Mr. Cheddar’s Meowsings!

Kibbles of Wisdom from a Wise and Witty Feline

Here’s the description of what this furrrry new ebook is all about, from the Amazon site:

Mr. Cheddar serves up his own unique and flavorful blend of feline tummy-tickling humor and puuuurfound kibbles of wisdom throughout the pages of: 
                                                                                                                   
Mr. Cheddar’s Meowsings! Kibbles of Wisdom from a Wise and Witty Feline
                                                                                                                       
Color photographs of the ruggedly handsome Mr. Cheddar are featured throughout this book, purrrfectly complimenting his wise and witty words.                                                                                                              
 
Catty Topics of Note Include:                                                                                                   
  • advice for the lovelorn (applicable for felines and humans)
  • dealing with difficult neighbors (only humans, of course)
  • kibble quality control (never, NEVER let it slide)
  • disciplining humans (they can be taught, with time and patience)
  • litter box humor (snort…)
  • napping etiquette (there is a right way to do everything)
  • grooming suggestions (gilding the furry) 
  • aging disgracefully and loving it (heh, if you’ve still got it…)
and munch, munch more…
                                                                                                                         
Mr. Cheddar is currently furrrrriously pawing more litterary masterpieces, with minor assistance from his Meowmie: Geraldine. 
                                                                          
He scoffs at the need for any type of human help, but with such big, manly paws, typing can be a challenge at times, for the otherwise incredibly gifted Mr. C. 
                                                                                                              
And for Mr.Cheddar: furrrrbulous, feline words of wisdom and witticisms happily flow like a never-ending bag of premium kibble!
****************
And speaking of Amazon,
Mr. C and I were thrilled to note his new ebook on  three, Top 100 paid lists at Amazon.ca, this morning. We only added it to the Amazon sites, late yesterday.  

Available at all Amazon sites.

Happy Reading and Week from:

Me and (published feline) Mr. C!!! 😉

On the Menu: Beet and Fresh Dill Layered Salad

I  ♥ BEETS! 😉

12165604296_fb9b93e426_z

And the simple marinated beet salad (see recipe below) featured in my cookbook:

The Groovy Green Kitchen I: Weeknight Veggie Slow Cooker,

and is one of my fav ways to prepare and enjoy them. 🙂

Beet and Fresh Dill Layered Salad

A flavorful marinated salad, especially good to make when garden dill and beets are at their peak. Keeps for several days, covered in the refrigerator. A perfect side dish with all kinds of main dishes. Adds a brilliant color contrast on your plate too. Serves 6.

12 medium fresh (preferred) beets: precooked, peeled and cut into thin circles (or use equivalent amount of whole canned beets with no salt added, thoroughly rinsed and drained, then sliced)

1 medium red Bermuda onion, thinly sliced in rings

3 -4 T. chopped fresh dill-weed

Red Wine Marinade:

1/3 C. extra-virgin olive oil

5 T. red wine vinegar

1 teas. Mrs. Dash Original Blend Seasoning

1/2- 1 teas. sea salt

½ teas. freshly-ground black pepper

In a large bowl (that has a secure cover) layer 1/3 of the sliced beets, topped by ½ of the onion rings, then ½ of the dill-weed. Repeat layers, ending with the last 1/3 of the beets on top.

Combine marinade ingredients in a jar and shake thoroughly. Pour over vegetables, cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Shake container gently to re-distribute marinade evenly before serving, especially if storing for a longer period of time.

*****

Last night, I made this beet salad, along with an orzo salad for supper. It was soooo good. 🙂

I also like to serve this with my: German Sauerkraut Feast (click to enjoy that slow cooker recipe).

If you ♥  beets too, you might want to give this one a try! 😉

Happy Cooking!

Chickpeas: What’s Not to ♥ ♥ ♥ !!!

I’m a big fan of chickpeas.

I use them in all kinds of recipes: soups, stews, curries, hummus…

their nutty rich flavor and the unique texture they add to dishes too.

And they are sooooooo good for us! 😉

There are many health benefits derived from eating chickpeas, you can read more about that here and here. 

On the menu for supper tonight:

Slow Cooker Veggie Curry

And to add to this week’s snacks with crudites, crackers…
