Tasty Tuesday – Posting Interuptus

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Thanks to Sugar and Kol for initiating Tasty Tuesdays, today is our ninth  participating post!

Last night as Mom and I began to construct our post, my human sister, Rachel, called Mom from the kitchen.  “Mom, come out here quickly!”  Of course, Mom thought something was wrong and catapulted out of her chair, down the hallway, quick left turn into the family room/kitchen area.

Instead of an emergency, we saw (JJ and I caught up really fast):

Fluffy, who Mom lifts to reach his food area in the laundry room, helping himself to Rachel’s cheesy buns on the “kitchen” (called kitchen even though the table technically resides in the family room) table!  Of course, this is ONE of the areas Mom FORBIDS the felines to go!  Mom motioned to Rachel to take a picture.  Rachel quietly told Mom to get her phone, which she did, and Rach took the pictures!

Since Fluffy has been infirm for quite a while, (he can’t jump much anymore), they let him enjoy his treat, realizing how much he must have been drawn to the Hunger Games Cookbook delicacy.  JJ and I love cheese and would have made our jealousy known, however, we all watched in happy amazement, wondering how Fluffy jumped onto the table. (probably used a chair as a midjump…)

Here’s the recipe for the Cheese buns in case you or your humans want to try it out.

Katniss’s Craved Cheese Buns  (Notice the Kat in the title, hmmm….)

Yields 1 dozen buns

  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • ¾ cup sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Grease a cookie sheet.
  2. Mix Bisquick, 1/3 teaspoon garlic, sugar, milk, and cheese until well blended.
  3. Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake 8-10 minutes.
  5. In a microwave bowl, combine butter, ½ teaspoon garlic powder,Old Bay seasoning, and kosher salt. Heat in microwave for 30 seconds, until butter is melted.
  6. Generously brush tops of biscuits with butter mixture.

Another great, cheesy, day.

    • Hey Sampson, Hey Delilah, Jet here. Hi Miss Jodi.

      You and Mom have the same policy, huh? You guys should only know what we do when you’re not around!

      We are happy,too… he’s had a tough year. 🙂

  1. Hi Jetty – I’m home! I missed you and thought about you and JJ and your family alot! I just read all the blogs I missed and boy you’ve had a busy few days! Love all your blog awards ( so well deserved!) giggled as Fluffy helped himself to Rachels yummy treat, cheered for you, JJ and Mom as you saved sweet Gizmo and was soo relieved to hear you didn’t run away when you had the leash mishap!

    Our trip was awesome, my sis and bil are great – love em so much! They are wonderful! We spent time with relatives and friends I hadn’t seen in along time, hiked with Miss Abby and her golden friend Lacey and their Mom and Dad (I’ll e-mail Mom some photos!) in a hiking park full of many dogs on and off leash and even people riding horses! , ate yummy foods, shopped, giggled and just enjoyed each other! MIss Abby is quite the character – gets into everything – very spunky, feisty, playful and sweet sweet sweet! We’ve never had a puppy so Jacob and I really loved her up! Mr. David took great care of our furbabies – we were happy see them today. I spent the day unpacking, cleaning the house, laundry, catching up on yard work and food shopping so I’m pooped (plane left Boston at 7:00 a.m.) so I;m off to bed.

    Sending plane fulls of goodnight hugs and kisses to you, JJ, Mom, Rachel, and Pluffy! xoxoxox

    p.s. Yea Heat!!! I think they play tonight so enjoy the game

    • Hey it’s Jet here. Welcome home Miss Wendy!!!

      Gosh, we missed you too… we love, love, love seeing you in the queue! We knew you were enjoying sis and bil though. Boy, you sure caught up super fast on our goings on!

      Sounds like you had a pawesome time… hiking? oh… I dream of that… off leash, say it isn’t so! Oh that Abby sounds like a cutie patootie alright. No doubt she enjoyed every minute you and Jacob spoiled her. Mom’s never experienced puppyhood either. Wish we had a park like that… ahhhhhh can’t wait to see pics. 🙂

      We knew Mr. David would give Cassie, Rex and Barkley the A+ treatment, bet they were wagging like crazy when you and Jacob returned.

      Mom asked me to share that it’s always quite a job to come home and catch up, glad you are already catching ZZZZZZZZZZZZsssss

      Sending airports full of welcome home Jetty kisses and JJ hugs. xoxoxoxoxoxo

      Mom’s back on Heat delay of game because they looked a little rocky at the start of the third quarter… we’re crossing paws and fingers…

  2. well first..YEA!!!! Fluffy…you go furrfriend!!! Get what ya want and get it now!!! Live your life to the fullest!! And what’s a little cat fur on the kitchen counter mean anyways…we digest it just fine and I sure the peeps can too… And we are gonna be makin’ those buns real soon!

    • Hey Savvy, Jetty here.

      Fluffy asked me to share that you are a wise young feline… and pretty too!

      Uh… Savvy? Can you throw a few cheesy buns Big Guy’s way… Mom’s fairly strict, although I received some pawesome belly rubs today. 🙂

  3. Ooo! I love cheese! Sorry, got distracted!

    I think you and JJ need to talk to Fluffy and get her to teach you how to jump up there. Then, if she didn’t feel like it, you could hop up there and get a treat for her! Everybody wins!

    • Hey Bunny, Jet here.

      Uh… Bunny… don’t remind Mom… cuz… uh… we have gotten up there and gotten in BIG trouble! If we were as tall, sleek and graceful as you… gosh, maybe we could get up there without Mom noticing!

      What type of cheese do you enjoy?

  4. Cats! I have 2 cats and one is always into food, any food, cat food, dog food, human food…not surprised your Fluffy was able to jump for some food! Emma

    • Hey Fred, Hey Gloria, Jet here. Hi Miss Janet.

      According to my human sister, Rachel’s drama troupe at high school… they’re amazing! She’s been bringing in dozens and dozens and dozens since February!

  5. Nice one Fluffy!! I’m proud of you, you Mischief Maker 🙂

    Enjoy 🙂

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂
