WAFFLES:  Turkey?


KATIE:  Who are you calling Turkey?


WAFFLES:  Boss, did you know we can have turkey anytime? Not just on Thanksgiving?


KATIE:  I thought you were all about chicken, Waffles.


WAFFLES:  Yeah, but –


KATIE:  Yeah but nothing.


WAFFLES:  What if I really love turkey too?


KATIE:  That's just wrong, Waffles. Two-timing with turkey? It's like you're cheating on your chicken.

Baking Up Black Friday


WAFFLES:  Hey Boss? What's this thing?  Is it a hat? Like maybe a Thanksgiving hat?

KATIE:  Waffles, it's not a hat. It's the whip from Glogirly's mixer. Don't touch it.



WAFFLES:  Glogirly has a WHIP???  

KATIE:  What did I say about touching it? 

WAFFLES:  So what was Glogirly whipping?



KATIE:  Cupcakes. She was baking cupcakes for our party today. Our guests are arriving any minute now. 

WAFFLES:  Cupcakes? What kind of cupcakes?

KATIE:  Hummingbird cupcakes. 



WAFFLES:  HUMMINGBIRD cupcakes?  Like REAL hummingbirds?



KATIE:  Waffles, don't be ridiculous. Hummingbird cupcakes don't have real hummingbirds in them.  That would be crazy.  

WAFFLES:  I don't know. I don't think chicken cupcakes would be crazy. I'D eat a chicken cupcake. 

KATIE:  Waffles, there's no such thing as a chicken cupcake, a turkey cupcake or any kind of poultry cupcake. Cat's don't even EAT cupcakes. 




 WAFFLES:  So how did she get the hummingbirds inside these cupcakes???



Hummingbird Cupcakes
Hummingbird cake is an old southern recipe. Spicy and sweet... a little bit like carrot cake. Gloman likes his naked, but Glogirly usually tops them with a dollop of cream cheese frosting. She was still whipping up the frosting when she took this photo but rest assured, there's frosting in their future. 



makes 24 cupcakes
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3 eggs
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1-1/2 tsp vanilla

2 mashed bananas
1 cup coursely chopped pecans



1. Mix flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, salt with a whisk in a good sized bowl.

2. Beat eggs.

3. Add oil and vanilla to beaten eggs and mix until somewhat combined.

4. Add egg/oil/vanilla mixture to flour/sugar/baking soda/cinnamon/salt mixture.

5. Mix together pineapple, bananas, pecans until combined.

6. Add to the rest of ingredients and stir to combine.

Bake at 350 degrees for ~25 minutes until golden and a cake tester comes out clean. 



Because everything's better with...
Cream Cheese Frosting
2 packages (8-ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
l 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
5 to 6 cups confectioners' sugar

Waffles Wednesday: Deep Cover

Hi everybody, Waffles here.

I decided that if I can't be a chicken rancher when I grow up, on account of I live in the city and all, I want to be a CIA agent. An UNDERCOVERS agent.

There's something called Deep Cover. It takes a lot of experience and training. Only the really COOL and HANDSOME agents get to go deep. 



So I'm practicing going deep.  I bet you can hardly recognize me, right? 

But for the REALLY important missions, you know... the super dangerous ones. You have to go even deeper. 



WAY deeper.

#TuxieTuesday: The New OMG Cat

KATIE:  You've all probably seen the famous OMG cat meme on the internet. You know, the cat with his mouth hanging open and a dubbed in voiceover of, "Ooooooooohhhh."

You may have also wondered what would shock a cat SO much that they'd even make that face.




WAFFLES:  *inaudible gibberish*



KATIE:  Enough said.

A Thanksgiving Giveaway for You & Your Favorite Shelter from Peach Industries

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! Did you know it's Thanksgiving this week? What are YOU thankful for?

KATIE:  Well I'd be really thankful if you didn't try to kiss me.




WAFFLES:  Sorry, Boss. Personal space, right?

KATIE:  You're learning, Waffles. So Waffles, what are YOU thankful for?

WAFFLES:  You mean besides toys and snacks and chicken and stuff?

KATIE:  It's ok to be thankful for toys and chicken, Waffles. Those are things that make you happy.

WAFFLES:  How about Glogirly and Gloman and our nice forever home?

KATIE:  You really ARE learning, Waffles. We are very, very fortunate to be part of a forever family. There are SO many cats waiting in shelters, hoping for just a fraction of what we have.






WAFFLES:  You're right, Boss. We really are lucky. 

KATIE:  And now we get to share the luck. Our friends at Peach Industries are sponsoring a very special kind of giveaway. The kind of giveaway that will brighten the lives of some of those cats waiting in shelters.



Thanksgiving Giveaway for You & Your Favorite Shelter
To celebrate all that we're thankful for, we're giving one lucky GLOGIRLY reader a chance to win a Peach Industries Kitty Lounger for their favorite shelter AND, a sweet organic t-shirt for themselves! 
The winner can choose a classic or mini kitty lounger in their choice of fabric. Some shelters, due to certain regulations, aren't able to use furniture that has a wood base. But there are SO many creative ways a shelter can put these loungers to great use. 

How Can a Kitty Lounger Can Help a Shelter?
1. Offer as a prize in a fundraising raffle or silent auction.
2. Send it home with a newly adopted senior cat.
3. Give to a foster family for a new mother and her kittens to use. 
Remember Nadya and her NINE kittens? When Feline Rescue was given a lounger, they gave it to Momma Nadya.



A Sweet Tee for the Winner!
The winning reader will also receive a cool organic t-shirt in the design of their choice. Extended sizes are available.

Open to Readers Worldwide!
Although the kitty lounger must ship to a US 501(c)(3) shelter, the t-shirt can ship anywhere in the world. That means EVERYONE can enter. Good luck everyone. And thank you to our friends at Peach! 


NOTE: We are experiencing intermittent problems with Rafflecopter. Due to changes they have made to their giveaway widgets, ours and those on other blogs may be loading very slowly.

We received our kitty lounger no charge from Peach Industries. We also received a small fee to cover the time it takes to take photos, write the blog post and administer the giveaway. Receiving the free product and the fee did not influence our article or anything we say.  All sponsored posts on GLOGIRLY will always reflect our honest opinions and feature products we use and love.

WAFFLES:  Reservation?
