Kind of sad day here at the homestead. Kramer, The Cat, passed on today. He had a health issue that was bigger than he could handle. Believe me he was able to handle a lot. He will be missed by Chris and I and by Archie. So for obvious reasons I really did not want to make dinner. But as I had not eaten all day it was a necessary thing to do.

Chicken tenders cut into small cubes. Sauteed in olive oil and butter. Seasoned with salt and pepper. Added sliced zucchini and added some crushed red pepper, thyme and rosemary.
It was good dinner. Just missed scolding Kramer to get off the table.

On another note I would like to congratulate all the contestants moving on to the next challenge in the Project Food Blog. Unfortunately I was not among the chosen but it was fun to participate in the first round. And I would like to send out a special thank you to all of you who voted for me. I hope you will continue to follow my adventures here.

Rest in peace Kramer. I love you.

I loved your post and am sad that you won't be moving on. Of course I could never be a judge in a contest because I would want everyone to win (well most everyone!)
I'm sorry about your cat, my best friend also lost her cat this month - she'd had her cat as long as we'd been friends (about 15 years.)
I'll still be following you.

Thank you! And thank you for your help with the Project Food Blog. Funny but with all that was going on here the 2nd challenge would have been a challenge to pull off. Things usually happen for a reason.

Oh Lucia, this will always bring tears to my eyes. Hang in there. No cat had a better life than little Kramer. We will miss him too!

I just lost the best dog in the whole wide world this summer -- I'm feeling for you. (And I voted for you . . and I'm following; I love your cooking!)

Thank you Rosemary.
