Hi everyone, it’s me Queen Daisy Mae. I get to the post today although Mom Crystal is helping me and putting her 2 cents in. I’m thrilled I finally get to do another post. Mom Crystal is under the weather with her Sinus cold and allergies. They really bother her and that makes her sneeze a lot and I mean a lot.
What are we thankful for? OH there is so much we are thankful for. I’m thankful for my brand new Flea And Tick Collar that protects me, I’m thankful for my furrever family, I’m thankful for my My Mommies and Daddy. Mom says to tell you she’s thankful for ME, Her Family, All the front line workers, All the veterans and Active military workers, Friends, and all the Mothers.
Mom Crystal’s niece who works at a hospital in Olean, New York is getting an antibody test done today to find out if she ever had the bad Corona Virus.
That’s All Friends. Stay Safe And Healthy.
Fall arrived September 23 and the weather we are getting here in my little town in PA has gotten colder too. In fact, we just had our first killing frost which means our Blue and Purple Morning Glories are black. Literally cooked.
Even though Fall isn’t my favorite season, I do love how the leaves on trees and bushes change color, eating Corn On The Cob, Drink Apple Cider and so much more. By the way, what’s your favorite thing or things about Fall? Please let me know either by using the Contact Form or in the comments.

Hi all, you know I just had my 13th birthday. Well my Human Mom told me I could take over this post and if I do well, I can do it again sometime. So I ask you purrty please, please tell my Human Mom how well I did. Thank you all in advance. Now onto Friday Fill – Ins.
1. I think it would be fun to travel but not sure I really want to.
2. I have a hankering for friendship and sleep and lots of it.
3. Getting stuck in a hole/ tunnel in the Basement is a memory I’ll never forget.
4. If I were given the choice to immortal, I would pass on the opportunity. You see, I miss all my sisters and would want to see them and make sure they’re doing their jobs correctly. Also, I’ve liked my life through now and just love my Human family who gave me a furrever home. They’re purry special to me.
Now how many times have you spent your time in your kitchen cooking something you think everyone will eat only to find out their are children or grandchildren who won’t eat it. Well guess what? I thought, wouldn’t it be great to find something everyone will like and to boot it’s quick and easy to make and you won’t spend all your time in the kitchen. Sound Great. The below recipe is from Pillsbury’s site and the original recipe link is: Easy Bacon-Cheddar Sweet Hawaiian Rolls .
I do this blog hop and it’s really fun to do and it helps bring more traffic to your blog too. This blog hop is over at Esme’s Senior Salon. The link to her blog for this week’s Senior Salon is: Senior Salon Blog Hop and Esme’s blog link is: Esme’s Blog

Hi and Welcome Everyone, if you have owned a cat, dog or any type of pet for that matter then you probably know what I’m talking about. So what is a Daisy Mae scare you ask? Glad you asked. A Daisy Mae scare is basically a cat scare where you almost lose you cat or pet. Daisy Mae is my cat’s name and almost lost her twice this past week so this post was almost a different type of post. But the first time you think you are going to lose a pet you get so nervous you think you might pass out. However, you don’t.
You have to understand my family and I have had Daisy Mae from around 4 weeks old. My little Daisy Mae has turned into a 13 year old kitty cat. So that’s a Daisy Mae scare in a nutshell. So all you have to do is if you’ve had one of these scares you can call them (your pet’s name) scare. Most pet owners know what I’m talking about.
Ever just want to get refreshed in this hot weather? Ever go for a glass of water but didn’t really want water? Well I’m going to help you remedy that. That’s right here is an easy recipe for a drink that looks very refreshing. That’s right I haven’t tried it. Please note, This recipe can easily be made nonalcoholic by taking all alcoholic ingredients out. “Pickle Rick” Recipe is below.
1.5 oz Aurora Gin.
.5 oz Pickle Juice.
.5 oz Tomato Juice or Bloody Mary mix.

I thought I’d do something different. We do recipes for humans but rarely do recipes for cats. I thought I would do some recipes for cats.
I follow TWO Spoiled Cats and found this recipe a few days ago on their blog and liked it that I wanted to share it with you.
RECIPE FOR CATS: SALMON KITTY TREATS
10 oz canned salmon undrained.
1 egg beaten
2 cups whole wheat flour
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Put 10 oz canned salmon (undrained) in a food processor and/or chop as finely as possible.
In a mixing bowl using a hand or stand mixer, combine salmon, 1 egg (beaten) and 2 cups whole wheat flour until dough forms. If dough is too dry, add up to 1/3 cup of water. If dough is to wet or sticky, add a bit more flour. Dough should be tacky but not sticky.
Roll out dough on a floured surface until about 1/4 inch thick. Use a 3/4-inch cookie cutter in the shape of your choice to create your treats (or just form with your hands!)
Place treats on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. When they’re slightly browned and crunchy, they’re done.
Allow to cool before serving.
Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
CAT RECIPES: CHICKEN TREATS
1 1/2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/3 cup cornmeal
1 tbsp. softened margarine
While your oven is preheating to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, combine the chicken, broth and margarine, then add the cornmeal and flour. Knead the dough into a ball and then roll it out to 1/4 inch. Cut into one-inch pieces and bake for 20 minutes on an ungreased cookie sheet.
CAT RECIPES: CHEESE TREATS
3/4 cup shredded or grated cheddar cheese
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup sour cream or yogurt (plain)
1/4 cup cornmeal
5 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese

DAISY MAE AND I hope one of these recipes appeals to your cat. Cats deserve treats frequently and daily.
*Full Disclosure* I found these recipes on TWO Spoiled Cats blog. The original post of recipes can be found at TWO Spoiled Cats blog and also on the internet. I’ve not tried these recipes on my cat since I’m not a cook. You can create your own combinations by cooking with your kitty favorites by substituting key ingredients.
If you make any of these treats let me know how it goes and how your cat likes it.

Daisy Mae And I are thankful we live in a free land and free to choose to make up our own mind and not have a Dictator telling us what we can and can’t do. We’re very grateful to the veterans, active military and especially grateful to those who paid the ultimate price.
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!
Daisy Mae and I are doing 2 questions each. Daisy Mae will answer questions 2 & 4 and I will do questions 1 & 3. Answers will be in italics.
1.) I like my printer that comes with a fax and scanner functions.
2.) When I was a kitten, I had to have catnip, toys and time for exploring and playing.
3.) I spend the most time thinking about … now that is tough question. Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about my book.
4.) Exploring a small tunnel in the basement I’ve never been in is a risk worth taking.
1 qt. (4 cups) boiling water, divided.
2 pkg. (3 oz. each) JELL-O Berry Blue Flavor Gelatin.
2 pkg (3 oz. each) JELL-O Gelatin, any red flavor.
3 cups cold water, divided.
1 pkg. (3 oz.) Jell-O Lemon Flavor Gelatin.
1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed.
Let’s make It:
Add 1-1/2 cups boiling water to blue gelatin mix in medium bowl; stir 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Repeat in separate bowl with red gelatin. Stir 1-1/2 cups cold water into gelatin in each bowl.
Spray 10-cup flag mold with cooking spray; place on baking sheet. Pour Red gelatin into mold. Refrigerate 45 minutes until set but not firm. Meanwhile, refrigerate blue gelatin 45 minutes. After 20 minutes, dissolve lemon gelatin in boiling water in separate bowl. Refrigerate 25 minutes or until slightly thickened.
Whisk COOL WHIP into lemon gelatin; spread over red gelatin layer in mold. Refrigerate 10 minutes or until set but not firm. Cover with blue gelatin. Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm. Unmold.

This recipe for Homemade Ice Cream is not only tested and tried but this recipe has also made its rounds through the family. You see my Family Homemade Ice Cream Recipe was passed down from Great Grandmother to my mother and you guessed it, I got the recipe from my mother. Now onto the recipe.
Homemade Ice Cream Recipe For 6 Quart Ice Cream Freezer
1.) 4 Eggs.
2.) 2 1/2 cups White Sugar.
3.) 1 can of Evaporated Milk.
4.) 4 tablespoons of Vanilla.
1.) Beat 4 Eggs then add the Sugar slowly while beating it.
2.) Now add the Evaporated Milk and the 4 tablespoons of Vanilla.
3.) Pour all of this into the ice cream container then fill the container 3/4 full of Regular Milk. Put container into the ice cream freezer and surround it with ice and plug freezer in. Can use hand crank ice cream freezer to make the Homemade ice cream too.
If you don’t have a Ice Cream Freezer/Container you can usually find one at Amazon.com, Walmart or another shopping store/mall that might have one.
Now I don’t know about anyone else but in my opinion bacon in almost any recipe is great and you can’t go wrong. Today’s recipe comes from a wonderful site called Two Spoiled Cats . This site I just love.
Ten Eggs (important ingredient in an omelette!)
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 dashes hot pepper sauce, or to taste
- 1/2 pound bacon – cooked, and chopped into bite – size pieces
- 1 (4 i) can black olives, drained
- 2 roma (plum) tomatoes, chopped
- 1/4 cup green onions, chopped
- 1/3 cup mushrooms, sliced
- 3/4 cup Colby – Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat an 8 inch square baking dish with non – stick cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, combine eggs and milk. With an electric mixer, beat until frothy. Blend in salt and hot pepper sauce. Stir in bacon, olives, tomatoes, green onions, mushrooms and cheese. Pour into prepared pan, and cover with lid or aluminum foil.
- Bake in preheated oven for 40 to 50 minutes, or until eggs are set in the center.
If there is an ingredient you either don’t like or want in your River Omelette DON’T PUT IT IN!! It’s that easy. As for the cheese if you prefer American, Provolone, Swiss or some other cheese instead of Colby – Monterey Jack cheese please feel free to use it. As we all know THAT the bacon is the most important ingredient then the eggs. Now maybe you’ll try it for Breakfast, another meal or even serve your mother Breakfast in bed.
The picture below is of an actual Bear my uncle shot many, many years ago. This is the Bear head. It was passed down to my Dad after my uncle died. He was into hunting. There is nothing fake about this Bear. I can’t tell you how old this bear is because I don’t know. But trust me, he’s old. Also, you see below the Bear head is part of an old clock. Like the Bear Head I have no idea how old the clock is either.
