    Usually cats don’t need lower calories, they need less food. How much and how often are you feeding her each day.

    It sounds like she may be consuming too much of her normal food.  A healthy, active, 10-lb adult cat requires 270-320 calories per day.

    Typically, dry food contains about 300 calories per cup.

    You’ll Need
    2 whole large peaches
    2 8 oz cans crescent rolls
    2 sticks butter
    1-1/2 cup sugar
    1 tsp vanilla
    cinnamon, to taste
    1 1/2 cups orange juice

    Ok, I thought I’d give this one a go, but I wasn’t too crazy about the amount of sugar in it so I’ve revamped it a bit.

    First, there’s only 2 of us, so I’m cutting the recipe in half.

    1 large peach
    1 8 oz can crescent rolls
    1/2 stick butter
    1/2 cup sugar + 1 tsp Cinnamon
    1/2 tsp vanilla
    cinnamon, to taste
    3/4 cup orange juice

    I used a pie plate, rather than a 9×13, since I greatly reduced the recipe.

    I mixed the cinnamon and sugar together, then mixed half of that with the melted butter and drizzled it over the top of the crescent wrapped peaches. Then poured the orange juice in the bottom, so it would surround the peaches.

    I then sprinkled the remaining cinnamon/sugar blend over the tops of the crescent peaches and baked them.

    They were delicious, not sickeningly sweet and we’ll definitely try them with other fruits to see how they come out.

    **Bump** it’s that time of year again, keep an eye out for them. Occasionally neighborhood dogs and cats find them.

    Also, you can buy disney cards at target with a red card. They’re classified as entertainment cards rather than gift cards and you can get a 5% discount. Use that to purchase food/souvenirs, etc.

    Leftover Mashed potatoes and carrots could both be used in homemade shepherds pie, or you could make Potato Donuts!

    2 cups hot mashed potatoes (with added milk and butter)
    2-1/2 cups sugar
    2 cups buttermilk
    2 large eggs, lightly beaten
    2 tablespoons butter, melted
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    6-1/2 to 7 cups all-purpose flour
    Oil for deep-fat frying

    EASY FROSTING:
    3-3/4 cups confectioners’ sugar
    1/2 cup baking cocoa
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/3 cup boiling water
    1/3 cup butter, melted
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, sugar, buttermilk and eggs. Stir in the butter, baking soda, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and enough of the flour to form a soft dough.

    Turn onto a lightly floured surface; pat out to 3/4-in. thickness. Cut with a 2-1/2-in. floured doughnut cutter.
    In an electric skillet, heat 1 in. of oil to 375°.

    Fry the doughnuts for 2 minutes on each side or until browned. Place on paper towels.

    For frosting, combine the confectioners’ sugar, cocoa and salt in a large bowl. Stir in the water, butter and vanilla. Dip tops of warm doughnuts in frosting.

    I bet these would be awesome with strawberry ice cream, then you’d have “Chocolate Covered Strawberry Truffles”!

    Or Used Pecans with the corn cereal and butter pecan ice cream. Mmm.. these remind me of Peg Bundy Bon-Bons!

    Do you happen to have any other contact info on them. Granny has since passed away and so I do not even have access to the paperwork she received with her shipment years ago. Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide. Have a magical remainder of your week. Jim

    It’s actually a lot easier just to order it directly from Amazon if you can’t find in the laundry aisle of your local walmart or Target.

    in reply to: Myths and Facts About Spaying and Neutering #465274

    Our sweet girl was spayed yesterday and it’s good to note that spaying is considerably more invasive than neutering. We’re supposed to keep her strictly confined for 10 days. When they’re coming off anesthesia (and for 24-36 hours following) it can be very difficult for them to keep anything down.
