Scalloped Potatoes (My cat loves Daiya!)

Hi everyone! Today's Vegan MoFo prompt is "Making the humble potato the star of the show," so I immediately knew where today's recipe was going to come from: My cat loves Daiya! I made the scalloped potatoes for dinner tonight, and they were really good!

Here's my Inktober sketch...

Here's Leela on the sleeping bag this morning...

Ramblings: Today felt like a wrapping-up-the-mourning day. I woke up and went to go downstairs to feed the kitties without instinctively glancing in at Buttons' fort (Zach had made it by draping a blanket over a chair). Later, I finished the book I'd been reading when Buttons was still alive. For lunch, I finished the leftovers from the meal I cooked before we brought her to the vet. Nearly everything we'd rearranged to make things easier for Buttons has been put back to where it used to be. I typed up a bunch of memories this afternoon; I don't think I could ever forget her, but I sure as hell am not taking that risk. I certainly don't like the idea of life going back to "normal" without Buttons, but I know she wouldn't want me mourning forever, so I'm OK with it.

Peace. :)


  1. I don't even know what to say. I am so so sorry about sweet Buttons. I know nothing can take the pain away but I am sending hugs and love anyway.

    1. Thank you, Hillary; the hugs & love do help! <3

  2. Much love. It is so strange adapting to life without someone who has been such a presence.

    1. Thank you, Susan <3 Buttons had an incredible presence; even with the three kitties here, there's still such an emptiness without her that's hard to comprehend.
