Riley had his "about him" post a few weeks ago so it's time for Captain Clearbeards "about me" post. Here she is in all her glory. First I'll explain the name Captain Clearbeard. She drinks water like it's the last time she'll ever see it. She's obsessed. When she drinks water she sticks her chin and chest into the water creating a glorious clearbeard. Recently she has been shaking it off like she's a dog. But some dropplets still remain. It's incredible. I've yet to capture a picture of the actual clearbeard. We just call her CB for short. As you can see she is a vicious beast. A neighbor of ours in the building had her first but we found her in the hallway one morning and she has lived with us since. Her likes are: killing crickets, drinking gallons of water, kneeding her silver paws on my belly, biting, attacking, attacking from behind, revenge attacks, hanging out in the kitchen when I wash dishes(for the water), bean liquid (she's weird), birds on the fire escape, the spider in the kitchen. Her dislikes are: being attacked from behind, being bite, having riley walk towards her (he's 25 pounds, she's 1/2 that weight), wolf noises peter likes to make at her, being held when she doesn't request it, being left alone for to long. Peter and I agree that what she hates most about herself is her super super soft fur. I could pet her super super soft fur all day. But then she would bite me all day. We love her to death. I like to sing songs about her when i'm cooking. She secretly likes all the attention we give her though she pretends to be a beast.
Now to food
Last night I made Fetuccini Alfreda from VwaV. I LOVE this sauce. It's probably one of my favorite recipes from the book. I've made it so many times. With all the cooking I did over Sunday and Monday I needed something that was going to be quick and easy and didn't require alot of chopping. (I broke my right (dominate) hand LAST Nov. 28! and it's still bothering me at times. Making pizza dough really bothered it the other day but at least it was good exercise for my hand.) I love that this recipe makes enough so we can have it for pasta one night and something else another. Usually pasta again. This time I'm going to do something different with the leftover sauce. I'm not sure what though.
