Ask Fiona: Are Tree Skirts Alien Life Forms?

Dear Fi,
My sister is attacking our tree skirt saying it is an alien and must die – are tree skirts really aliens?
BunBoy in need of clarification

Dear Bun,
Tree skirts are an alien life form that invade the house every winter. They must be killed. Here I demonstrate the art of pouncing on the alien.

Fiona & the Tree Skirt

Once properly pounced, you must attempt to dig to China through the offending tree skirt

Dig - Dig - Dig

Ahhhhh, conquest is mine!

What? I was not eating the tree skirt
And I know that was you Orlando… BunBoy…

Oh – And visit here for the cutest snoozy lop photos ever!

Bento 1/3

Vegan Stroganoff (inspired by meatless meatballs stroganoff recipe in the Jan Vegetarian Times)

Olive Oil
1 medium onion
1 package sliced mushrooms
½ package Trader Joes Soy Meatballs
½ cup Dry Sherry (or if you do not have a dry sherry, white wine)
¼ Veggie Stock (or more as needed)
1 container of Vegan Sour Cream (I used Tofutti)
Cracked black pepper and salt
Eggless egg noodles

Sautée the onion in olive oil until soft (5-10 minutes). Add in sherry, mushrooms and meatballs – salt and pepper to taste. Cook until the sherry is absorbed. Turn to low. Add stock and sour cream. Cook until the sauce thickens & serve over noodles. I add cracked black pepper and thyme to the top of mine. Enjoy.

  3. Fiona and Orlando are up to no good under that tree. I love how rabbits always think they are so sneaky. For instance if Peaches is chewing on the table leg I’ll call her name and ask her to stop. A few seconds of silence and then she starts chewing again, only more quietly. LOL
