Cats and cooking!

Today started off as the first Sunday where we didn't have a million errands related to our move. This afternoon was the National Cat Protection Society's open house and fundraiser. seki_raku called about going. Steve had to go in to the office, so Seki and I headed over there ourselves.

I donated $20 and we visited the senior cats and the cats in one of the adoption galleries. The other rooms were closed off, probably because there were a lot of people there. Sizzler's had donated burgers and hot dogs as well as the fixings, potato salad, etc. I talked to the ladies who had been there when Ivan was adopted and showed them a picture of him taken an hour previously. The truth came out; while they did honestly think he was a runt who'd never grow, they said he was unfriendly because they couldn't bear to see him go. But they acknowledged he was in a good home and I think I may just have to bring him by for a visit.

Seki and I stopped by North Park Produce because I needed feta and kalamata olives for a recipe I was making. I came out with cucumbers and tomatoes for a salad, the olives and feta, but also a container of baba ghanouj.

For dinner I made a recipe out of a cookbook I'd never used. It was pan-cooked chicken breast with a sauce of tomatoes, olives, onion, parsley and feta. I served it with a Beringer 2008 cabernet sauvignon instead of my daily cheap tavola. VERY nice, and Steve and I were very happy sitting at our dinner table in our condo.

After dinner, Seki returned with strigine for mojitos since I had a lot of mint and limes and suggested them as an apertif. I think I'm going to make cooking new recipes a weekly thing.

Is your condo like an apartment or a townhouse or something else?

It's an apartment, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths.
