filus, you have posted another winner!! I have couscous on my grocery list as I just cleaned up a whole bag of it off the floor where our new kitten drug the bag, opened it, and then apparently did a serious tap dance in it, which was beside my eggplant teapot broken on the floor, which was about 15 feet away from the most expensive planter that I "ownED" laying in pieces on the floor :(

The only thing I can afford to replace is the couscous :D

haha :p

Do you have a low fat recipe? I guess this would be a recipe that serves 1 :D

This is the closest this cat has gotten to me yet:

The dog was sleeping with me, head stuck out of the covers. Kitten came up to her and started smacking her in the head with his little kitten claws. Dog did not respond. Cat grabbed dog on each side of her nose (long nose - miniature dachshund) and started biting her head, ears and nose. Dog just yawned, turned head the other way, went back to sleep - now, there would normally be nothing wrong with this except it was 5:00 AM.

So, kitten stew, dip, burrito, casserole............. anything?
