Whilst I continue my slow recovery from the viral crud, I have divided my time between this laptop and the nest pictured above. A few warm quilts, a trashy paperback and the always appropriate admonition to "just throw another cat on." That is Midnight in this photo, although Smokey is usually the more likely candidate for reading partner and quilt buddy.
My hosts are both back at work today, so I will be taking over dinner duties, which will be a challenge as Gary has managed to do back-to-back-to-back deck grills with entree offerings of:
Steak in Hot Artichoke Marinade
Steelhead with Pear Chipotle Sauce
Scallops with Chili Mango Glaze
I am going to go with my standby: Strata.
This version with Andouille Sausage, capers, shallots with a Hazelnut bread base. Full half and half, of course, with an extra sharp cheddar.
Further introductions from Shasta include: OK (Outdoor Kitty) in both her barely outdoor and decidedly indoor poses. Missing image of Smokey and other slightly less tame animals next time.
