I think cat hair is a freak of nature. You start with a clean plate from the cupboard, no cat in sight. After you have plated the food, and you have eaten most of it, what do you find on your plates - cat hair. It is sort of like a mini David Copperfield lives under the plate and magically produces these hairs while your back is turned!

After Wednesday night's dinner, I thought I should go on the lighter side so just grabbed a (very average tasting) Lean Cuisine.

Just got home. I stopped by at favorite bread bakery on the way home from work and got a loaf of Italian bread. It smelled so good in the car I almost got sick, I was really hungry. I just sliced apiece of bread spread some soft butter and covered with home made black currant jelly and tall glass of baked milk (I do not know how else to describe that milk). Oh my gosh it was so good. Heavenly, I should say, yum!!!!!!!!!!

We had friends over and I made Ina G's Chicken with 40 cloves of garlic. It was really good. Lots of compliments. Served it with Moroccan Couscous and a great loaf of bread.

The "40 cloves" episode was on yesterday as I was baking, I was thinking about that for tonight....... however my DH doesn't care for a ton of garlic. Is it overpowering? I can't be overpowered by garlic, he can.

I made a big batch of potato soup with sour cream, cheese, ham, green onions, and crumbles bacon for topping. The perfect comfort food for the rain that rolled through late yesterday.

Depends how you treat the garlic. Keep it whole and it is milder. There are other ways to reduce the garlic flavour as well but my mind has gone blank. It isn't something I think about very often as, like you, there is never too much garlic!

What I hate is, you plate your food, you sit down at the table, you take your first fork or spoonful and raise it to your mouth and... there's that dam cat, with it's face either in your plate, or sniffing your breath to see what you just ate that he or she missed out on! I don't crawl across the floor over to their food bowls and get in their faces when they're eating, why do they have to get in mine?

We have two rescue Siberian Husky's. They don't often come in the house as they shed 365, no really. Anyway, I swept and cleaned yesterday the entire house as I am now at work and wanted to leave it clean for the man. I can't tell you how much fur I found/swept up/had to get rid of before washing the floor. Then hubby said, "honey, can I get a cat?" I asked why, he said, "so it will keep me company since you won't let me bring the dogs in." I simply with a firm voice said, "H&!! NO." Talk about hair!

Um, I dunno. Why are they allowed on the table? A few good swats or squirts of water in the face will break them of that habit.
