Found the blender jar. Oh. No sharp bladed innards. Oops. Dug around. Found it. Removed Siamese from the cupboard. Need parmesan. Found the tub. Gently removed the Siamese from the bottom of the fridge. Piled kale into blender. Yelled at Siamese cause he yelled at our resident baby bobcat. Poured olive oil slowly into the blender as the kale and garlic and parmesan ground together. Ignored Sally pup as she nosed aside dog food from my offering of parmesan. I caved. I fed the baby bob cat and Siamese and patient Sonny J cat then peered into the blender jar. Slurped in a little lemon juice. Washed hands. Took a taste of the pesto. Green and tasty. I nudged Siamese Beau away from the stove door as I pulled the pan of hot, roasted peanuts from inside the stove. Soon as the peanuts cool, I'll pour them into the juicer and soon will have fresh peanut butter. All cats munching, Sally snoozing on the couch, I assemble a sandwich of pesto, ham and havarti. Time to close my eyes to whatever the furry crew is up to.
