Anastasia…One Year Later…

”When Rome burned, the emperor’s cats still expected to be fed on time.”

– Seanan McQuire

Hello, sweet friends…

Anastasia came to live with us last August…

a tiny...


bundle of nerves…

Who has since grown…

into a funny gal with real personality…

pointing her tail in the air…

gliding from room to room…

She has mastered the art of her meow

for everything…

One year later she is officially QUEEN home.


What’s Cooking?

Shrimp Alfredo


  • Fettuccine pasta 
  • Shrimp (I used frozen 31-40 count per pound size shrimp. You could use smaller or larger. If using smaller ones, take care not to overcook them)
  • Butter (unsalted)
  • Cream cheese (for added texture and tangy taste)
  • Heavy cream 
  • Chicken broth (for added flavor)
  • Garlic 
  • Parmesan cheese

Shrimp preparation:

  • If the shrimp are frozen, place them in a colander and thaw them under cool running water.
  • Peel them (if they’re not already peeled). You can either take the tails off or leave them on depending on your preference.


  1. Add the butter, cream cheese, heavy cream, chicken broth, and garlic to a skillet over medium heat. Cook it for 5 minutes;
  2. Stir in the parmesan cheese and let it bubble for about a minute;
  3. Add the shrimp and cook for 5-6 minutes;
  4. Season to taste and toss with the pasta.

Easy peasy…❌⭕️❌💋
