cooking chicken….help! :)
Yes the vegetarian is cooking chicken. The clueless vegetarian is cooking chicken. Maybe that is a contradiction in terms. No, I haven’t gone all wild and wacky and ventured into meat-eating. It is for Little Mouse (primarily, hopefully) and Mischa –broth for Mousie and the actual meat for Mischa.
The butcher down the way was so nice. I went in and asked for the smallest little cutlet he had. For 6 sheks seems you can get two of them very thin-sliced. I asked if there was any way to just get one but he looked at me kinda strange and was like what do you need them for? A cat. He brightened up. For one of the cats outside here? Don’t worry, I feed them well twice a day. No, no, for my cat. Ah, well then this is what you want instead — He had a big bag of scraps, no bones included, and I could get a kilo for 10 sheks or, as I did a smaller amount. I went for half a kilo. He then made suggestions for cooking it for cats (add a little bit of soup mix, just tipa tipa, and you can put in a little bit of rice and they go crazy for it). Awesome. Only, I forgot to ask him how long to boil it for! How on earth do you know if it is cooked and has made tasty juice-broth?
On a side note, the smell of it cooking is driving all the cats in the house utterly insane and I’ve only been home for 10 minutes (I put it cooking before I even dropped my bookbag or put on at-home clothes!).
