Rain ~ Bruiser ~ Mac & Cheese Pie ~ Cat Tree

Good  36º drizzling rain morning. started raining last evening. Got about 1/4" so far.  

It's a full moon, rising at sunset, so be careful out there amongst the crazies! Most of them are out there on the roads driving. BE OBSERVANT!

Yesterday was dark and gloomy but Bruiser was out doing his "hunting" thing...
See him, the little black spot wayyyyy over there...

Fortunately the hunt was unsuccessful,  
so no dead critter was left for me on the front porch!

What is funny about the above is that exactly 1 year ago I posted the same identical thing... Bruiser hunting in the same place!

Just a slight variation on Macaroni & Cheese
Mac and Cheese Pie

2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
1 cup elbow macaroni, partially cooked
4 eggs
1/8 t. dry mustard
2¼ cups milk
1/2 cup biscuit baking mix
¼ t. salt
¼ t. pepper
** add sliced jalapeños for a Mexican twist, diced leftover ham, bacon bits
Preheat oven to 400º. Grease a 9" deep dish pie plate.
In medium bowl combine 1½ cups cheese and the partially cooked drained cool macaroni. Spoon into pie plate.
Put remaining ingredients, except 1/4 cup cheese, into blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Gently mix in any additions (chilis, ham, bacon etc) Pour into pie plate.
Bake 40 minutes, or until knife inserted in center comes put clean. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake 1-2 minutes until cheese is melted.
Cool 10 minutes and cut into wedges.

I had purchased a 'cat tree' from for Bruiser's Christmas present...

It all arrived in one box and it was toooooo heavy to move inside from the porch, so I took everything out and set it all in the living room....
Of course the Bruise climbed in right away! It's 6' tall and I know he will love it when I get it assembled. 

Dinner was an Omaha Steaks sole almondine, topped with some of my homemade sweet hot chili sauce, some peas with Mexican blend cheese, and tomato.

Then chair, wine, and TV..... several NCIS Los Angeles episodes, Blue Bloods, and a Hallmark Christmas movie. 

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Sunday. Ciao.

 It is a day of appreciation for the things we have, starting with the roof over our heads.

For most of us, a roof over our head signifies living in a house that protects us from the elements, keeping us warm, dry, and cozy. Unfortunately, not everyone is as lucky as you and I. There are many homeless people right here in our country. Some people live in a cardboard box on the street...... literally. There are millions of people around the world who live in poverty or disaster areas, and do not have a home to keep them comfortable and safe.
Spend a few minutes  being thankful that you are not homeless, and appreciating your roof and home today. Also make a contribution to a homeless shelter, so others can come in out of the rain.

Happy National Roof Over Your Head Day!
