I've finally decided that I am a writer - all the other things I do just pay the bills. Someone eloquent once said that if you do what you love, the money will follow. Well, let's just see about that.

RIP Aggie

RIP Aggie
Aggie was my fifteen-year-old cairn terrier - or maybe I should say I was her 55-year-old person! She was my faithful companion, spoiled rotten and I am still trying to figure out what to do without her.

Bee is Peter's buddy. He's eight years old and has made himself right at home. I guess cats really do come in pairs or sets of three!

And Jasper makes three!

Jasper is our new guy - the Cat From Another Place. He's four years old and we think he likes it here - so far, so good!

The ultimate comfort food...

that isn't macaroni and cheese?  You guessed it: tuna noodle casserole.  Around here, we call it Tuna Nooda.  I have no idea why.  But it can really cheer you up when you're feeling down - and it makes you feel better when your throat is sore and you feel like crap.  Either way - it's good to eat and not too bad for you.  Here's our foolproof recipe:

You will need:

1 pound of pasta - any kind will do
1 large can cream of mushroom soup (or cream of chicken - you pick)
1 small bag of frozen peas
2 tbsp butter (everything needs a little butter!)
2 cans of albacore tuna packed in water (drain and give the juice to your kitty)

Cook the pasta al dente.  Drain and add the butter.  Stir and add the tuna.  Did you give the tuna juice to your kitty?  You'd better.  Add the mushroom soup and mix well.  You can stop now and serve it just like it is - or if you want to be fancy, spoon it into a baking dish and top with bread crumbs or mashed up potato chips and a sprinkle of grated cheese.  Put it under the broiler for a couple of minutes until the cheese melts.  Makes four people very happy at one meal or it can make one person who will eat leftovers happy four times.  Enjoy!
