Latest internet craze – Inbread Kitties

Keywords: breading cats, internet, breadcats, inbread, inbred

 

 

No more pictures of people Tebow’ing (or Brady’ing for that matter) … We want to see your felines rocking a slice of bread.  This photo fad, a delightful play on inbred, has every cat owner adorning their furry friends in white, whole wheat, rye, potato bread slices – anything that can be found in the pantry.  Of all the internet memes this one is quite adorable.

 

To join in the silliness here are Gawker.com’s directions for breading your cat:

1) Take a piece of bread (If this is your first time, use a soft white bread. Experienced breaders will use rye or even multigrain.)

2) Cut a hole approximately 1 inch larger than your cat’s head. This trips some people up. Remember: the bread has to fit around the not just the cat’s head, but it’s ears, too.

3) Gently place the bread around your cat’s head.

4) Take a picture. Post it to the official Putting bread on cat’s Facebook page

 



For the love of coffee ship to the US!!!

Keywords: gadgets, coffee, caffeine, espresso, travel, car

 

Words cannot describe how great the need is for me to get my hands on one of these contraptions!!!!  This is the Handpresso ~ an on the go espresso machine that will brew you up some caffeinated goodness while you’re in bumper to bumper traffic.  Now running late in the morning and not having time to make yourself a cup of joe is no longer call for a complete mental breakdown!  I suppose the Handpresso is a form of crisis intervention.

 

Just pour water into the thermos, pop in a coffee pod, screw the top on and hit “on” – and you have just turned your car into your own personal coffee shop.  The most heartbreaking part of the Handpresso is that the company is not yet shipping to the US.

Check out their website and hopefully soon enough we’ll be sharing in a freshly brewed espresso mid traffic jam as well!!



Vegan Diet Chit Chat

Keywords: Bill Clinton, Ellen, celebrity news, vegan diets

 

Last week on the Ellen Show former president Bill Clinton was a guest, and no, he did not play his saxophone.  The two discussed their common bond, vegan diets.  Clinton supports a vegan diet saying that, “it’s healthier…and puts less stress on the cardiovascular system.”  Clinton credits his whole food, plant based way of eating with helping him to maintain a weight that’s lower than when he was in high school.

Seeing Mr. Clinton switch to all-veggies-no-dairy is quite impressive… being as he was a well known lover of burgers & BBQ.  Guess he hasn’t taken his 2010 heart issues lightly. {Ads at beginning of video courtesy of YouTube, not weEATny.}



The world’s most expensive hot dog

Keywords: hot dog, luxury

Ever wonder where you could buy the world’s priciest hot dog?  You can score one of these $69 meaty delicacies on New York City’s Upper East Side at Serendipity 3.  But this isn’t your average dirty water dog – this fancy frank is made of beef and garnished with black truffles, caramelized Vidalia onions, heirloom tomato ketchup, Dijon mustard and foie gras, and served on a pretzel roll that is grilled in white truffle butter.  This is no spur of the moment meal either, it must be ordered 24hours in advance. No wonder they’re calling it a Haute dog!



Lily, the new little muppet-with a BIG message

Keywords: muppets, hunger, sesame street

 

 

There’s a new girl on the block!  And though Sesame Street is known for having some of Hollywood’s A-Listers make cameos, this special person is no such thing… she’s pink… and she and her family are facing some tough issues!  Meet Lily – Lily will be the star of a very special episode of Sesame Street that is meant to shed light on the issue of hunger struggles and food insecurity; a major problem facing our nation right now.  This one hour prime-time episode, entitled “Growing Hope Against Hunger”, will air on PBS October 9th and will feature country star Brad Paisley and his wife Kimberly Williams Paisley.  The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that 17-million children in America have limited or uncertain access to food at this time; And out of that number 9.6 million are under the age of 6.  Included in the special will be stories told by children explaining, in their own words, struggles with hunger that their families have experienced.  Sesame Street characters will also be providing tips on ways families and their communities can work to create solutions (like food drives and assistance programs).  At this time Lily is only set to appear in this special episode… it remains to be seen if she will become a regular on the program.



PLEASE join in the PET FOOD DRIVE

Keywords: long island cares, pet food drive, charity

 

There are certain things that I don’t mind repeating over & over.. Like the 2 things in life that make me happy ~ Bringing you information about delicious dishes, helpful tips, and food news and bringing awareness to all things animal related.  Once again I get to mesh the two.  June is National Pet Adoption Month and we’re getting an early jump on the festivities!

 

Long Island Cares, Happy Chapin Food Bank will be holding a PET FOOD DRIVE at the Sachem Library, in Holbrook – beginning May 19th, from 9am – 2pm and running through the month of June.  Bring unopened cat or dog food, treats, collars, leashes, cat litter, small toys, or whatever else you think is suitable.  Donation boxes will be set up in the Teen Services are and at the Circulation Desk through June.

 

 

All the items collected will be stored at the Long Island Cares Pet Pantry – which serves to assist those who have fallen on hard times financially and can’t afford food and needed items for their pets.  Why is this so important?  Not being able to afford basic necessities for pets is a leading cause of animals being dumped at shelters.

 

Help out our furry loves!! They need to EAT too!!
