Friday Cat Blogging Missing Meglet December Hiatus

December 4, 2015 in Uncategorized

Hi Folks,

I think I’m going to take December off from cat blogging because I don’t have it in me right now. I just need more time to recover from losing Meg. I will return sometime in January.

Thanks for your patience,

Sometimes you climb the bear.


Somtimes bear climbs you.


I do not believe in the bear. I will not believe in the bear. The bear does not see me.

The bear passes me without notice. I will not believe in the bear…


I AM the bear.


Screw bears. The laptop is MY nemesis.

I will make you pay for this indignity, thumb-monkey! You’ll rue the day!


How will you manage that?


By using this* when the thumb-monkeys buy it for me.


That could work.


Let me know when it gets here, I have some eeeebil I mean kind thoughts on uses.


I can’t get past rue the day. Who talks like that?

Gluten-free 5 minute chocolate cake for 2:

From our local co-op newsletter, this recipe. I don’t care for chocolate all that much but I really enjoyed this. Of course, its advantages are also its disadvantages (5 minutes! 2 servings!)

Mix together:
4 Tbsp. rice flour (I used all purpose GF flour)
3 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. xantham gum
2 Tbsp. baking cocoa
1/4 tsp. baking powder

In separate bowl, mix:
1 egg
3 Tbsp. milk
3 Tbsp. oil
splash GF vanilla extract

Combine both mixtures in a large microwave safe mug. Toss in 3 Tbsp. chocolate chips, if desired.

Microwave for 2.5 – 3 minutes. The cake will rise over the top of the mug; don’t be alarmed. Allow to cool and tip out onto a plate. (I ate it hot, not waiting for it to cool.)
