Thread: Sittin' Home with a Bowl of Shrimp...

    Default Sittin' Home with a Bowl of Shrimp...

    We prefer staying home, just the two of us and our five kitties, on
    New Year's Eve. We almost always do this, although we sometimes go
    out for an early dinner.

    We probably won't go out to dinner this year, so I'm making an
    assortment of foods to pick at all evening. Some things David will
    like; the rest will be left to me.

    New Year's Eve morning I will do a shrimp boil, then cool and chill,
    along with a spicy cocktail sauce to go with. Before Christmas I
    made a couple of my favorite cheese balls, one to take to friends'
    for Christmas Eve, and one to have at home on New Year's Eve.

    Prompted by an earlier thread, I'm also making fried Italian sausages
    (both hot and sweet), peppers, and onions, with some homemade sauce
    on the side.

    We'll have a couple of dips with various chips and veggies.

    I'm also making chocolate eclairs for a late night dessert with
    champagne.

    Me, I could sit all night peeling and eating shrimp, and cutting up a
    few for the kits. :-)

    Don and I stay home that night with Charlotte. We don't do much special
    though other than watch TV together.

    Save the uncooked heads for them and they will love you even more! (they
    don't mind too much if you partly spoil the heads by steaming first).

    Then stand back to laugh your ass off when they get into 'kitty soccerball'

    Sounds like fun! All but one will play. Our oldest is just turning
    19 and pretty much keeps to herself, but she'll love having some
    shrimp.

    (snip)

    Spouse and I nearly always stay home for NYE, too! It's just so not
    worth getting out on any roadways to go anywhere when there are idiotic
    drivers on the loose, particularly when/if they've imbibed too much and
    have chosen to drive when they shouldn't!

    However, Spouse and I sometimes (not always) just might 'hoof it' over
    to a local pub/dive that's within easy walking distance, and that 'easy'
    part is "iffy" should the weather be truly inclement! But, since
    there's a lot of frozen precipitation (sn*w!!!) on the ground at the
    present time (which hopefully might be mostly gone by NYE ??), it's not
    definite if we'll indulge in a NYE's night-out for a night-cap to
    celebrate the end of this year and welcome the upcoming new year!

    Dang - it's hard to believe it's already nearly 2011, isn't it!!! <G>

    That's one of our main reasons for staying home.

    That's why we make it an *early* dinner out if we choose to go.
    While we're out and then getting home, most of the drunks either
    haven't yet started drinking or are still drinking and not yet out on
    the roads. There's no restaurant close enough for us to walk to.

    Probably nothing. When computer-based hardware and software were
    first developed, there was no thought given to dates beyond the turn
    of the century (2000). In the several major Y2K projects I was
    involved in, remediation of software and firmware code provided date
    computation well into the 21st century, if not beyond...well beyond
    just a bit more than a decade. There really isn't a magic number, as
    there was in the past.

    One of the most common is via a newsreader (e.g. Outlook Express).
    Therefore it is important to include the details of the post to which

    My cats always threw up any shrimp they were given.
    They loved to eat them, but I learned that seafood
    of any kind is not really good cat food. Once,
    I worked in an office in which my boss was telling
    me about the woes of his wife's cat, who couldn't
    keep down any tuna following a serious operation.
    I told him tuna is one of the worst foods you can
    feed to a sick cat. Best is lamb, followed by
    turkey. There was a deli nearby, and I suggested
    simple baked turkey, with no BBQ sauce or anything.

    He went over there, bought the turkey, and later
    told me it was like a miracle. The cat was able
    to keep down the turkey. Unfortunately, the cat
    did ultimately die of its illness.

    The operation was a declawing operation. Apparently,
    the problem was an overdose of the anaesthetic.
    I can't imagine declawing a cat myself. If you
    feel that a cat should be declawed, you shouldn't
    own cats.

    Sorry to hear that. Turkey can keep a cat eating at least something and
    it isn't unhealthy. Actually, not eating anything is unhealthy so
    getting anything in is good.

    I hope these people get blacklisted by the cat adoption
    agencies.

    Probably won't be Steve. Too many unwanted kitties. They do 'frown
    heavily' on declawing, and locally they pretty much show the declawing
    community only the ones already declawed.

    Me, I'd never do it but then, I've never found it hard to teach a cat to be
    polite with their claws either and I work mostly with older feral rescues.
    Usually when you have difficult clawing issues, it's the kitten taken from
    Mom too young in a 'kitten farm' type place or the dumb owner who doesnt
    want to spay 'Pookie' so keeps offering up kittens early.

    Our city Humane Society put down 2500+ cats this year. That isn't
    counting the county people, or all the little towns. I feel like singing
    "Spay and Neuter" to the tune of "Duck....and Cover".

    Yup. BTW, nothing wrong with feeding a cat a little shrimp. It's just not
    good to make any type of seafood their mainstay. General rule of thumb is
    no more than 30% should be seafood based. In my case I never use tuna but
    then oddly, I've never had a cat that will eat the kitty canned tuna
    versions.
