My Cats this Christmas
I didn't put up a tree this Christmas.  Little One is still too young to put up a tree with decorations.  In the past when I had Siggy he would make it his mission to remove all the stuffed Santas and Rudolphs off the tree.  Each morning I would find little Rudolph feet and Santa feet sticking out from his bed.

If a tree was up Little One would climb up it, so putting one up would not be a good idea this year.  Maybe next year. 

Little One and Ditto will have a visit from Santa.  Santa bought them a lot of bird seed.  My kitties activity is to watch the birds all day.  The bird seed for the bird feeders was purchased by several of our NancyLand members.  My mailman has been kidding me that my cats got more Christmas cards than I did.

1 clove garlic, crushed and chopped
1 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. vinegar
5 Tbsp. corn oil
1/2 c. sunflower seed kernels, dehulled
2 scallions, minced
6 lettuce leaves

Combine garlic, pepper, salt, vinegar and oil in bowl, whisking to combine. Add to carrots along with sunflower seeds and scallions. Serve on lettuce leaves.

Linda's Holiday Carrot Casserole Recipe

1 large can sliced carrots, drained
1/2 c. diced onions
1/2 c. diced celery
1/2 stick butter
2 Tbsp. flour
1 c. milk
1 c. grated cheese
buttered bread crumbs or grated cheese for topping

Sauté onions and celery in butter. Add flour, milk and cheese. After this makes a sauce, add carrots. Spoon into a casserole dish and top with buttered bread crumbs or grated cheese. Bake at 350° until heated thoroughly.

Note: I prefer to substitute frozen carrots that have been cooked a couple of minutes in the microwave. I drain them and use the recipe above..
