Remember I mentioned this book before?
Well, my human borrowed it at the library some time ago and we had the occasion to read it together. No, I was not snoozing!
Well, it’s a lovely little book. My human even plans to buy it when she can to keep it.
It is primarily a children book, so it is a quick read for a cat or adult human. It is full of beautiful drawings of Minette, Julia Child‘s Parisian cat.
It tells the story of how Julia Child, then studying cooking in Paris, came to adopt Minette and what Minette’s life was like living in Paris with Julia Child.
Both my human and I liked it lots. Me because it’s mostly about a Parisian cat and my human because it’s about a cook and beautiful drawings of her cat. Also, as mentioned before, this makes a great book to introduce cats and cooking to a child.
All in all, go check it out.
You can see part of it on Amazon (to give you an avant-goût).
You can also go check the author’s page. You can watch the author in the following video (talking about Minette’s Feast, starting at 1min20) and see some of the drawings from the book. Minette was really cute =^.^=
Also you can see images here and here.
We hope you’ll like it!
My human likes to cook (although it’s not always to our taste – ahem). And she likes to read cooking blogs. In fact, she spends way too much time reading cooking blogs while she could be playing with me instead. Anyway.
Nevertheless, I noticed a nice post today that might be of interest to my readers. It comes from Sprinkle Bakes, one of my human’s favorite cooking blogs, and it’s about making peanut-honey cupcakes for dogs. Check it out!
I also happen to completely agree with the human who wrote it:
His history is somewhat of a mystery to us, but we were told that he came from a pretty bad situation. You’d never know that from his demeanor. He’s the sweetest real-life teddy bear you’ll ever meet! And he instantly fit right in with Biscuit-the-pug and our three kitty-cats. Words cannot express how gentle and loving he is. It breaks my heart that there are so many animals of similar docility that get taken to the shelter. I don’t like to think about that too much, but I felt that I must mention it.
My human has the same reaction. And so do I. I often pray Ceiling Cat that he may keep them safe and find them a forever home.
Let’s go back to something more fun! Let’s wish Churro a Happy Birthday! Many purrs to you, Churro!
