Review - Manischewitz Mediterranean Gefilte Fish *New Product*

I received several Manischevitz products to review.  I was very interested to find out how their Mediterranean Flavor Gefilte Fish would taste.

I've always served their regular variety.  I have to say, I loved the addition of herbs and had never thought of adding any to my homemade Gefilte Fish.  Yes, I've made it from scratch using whole fish twice!  It is a major undertaking if you've never done it yourself.  That's why I rely on Manischewitz when we celebrate the holidays. When I a made mine I added cooked carrot and onion for extra flavor and it was a hit both times I made it.

The Maneschevitz Meterranean Flavor Gefilte Fish had a distinct flavor of Oregano.  I confirmed that when I read the label.  It's so flavorful that I would not add horseradish, it's delicious on it's own.

Check out Manischevitz products.  Also check out Manischevitz Holiday Recipes, and their Holiday Calendar.

Look for Manishevitz at your local grocery, or order online.

I broke her kitty...

So we welcomed my girlfriend's cat, Lucy,  into the family. 

The family being myself, my son, my daughter, our cat Maddux and our other cat Irish. Poor Maddux is outnumbered.

My girlfriend made a point of telling me and the kids that her cat is very independent, does not like to be petted, picked up, or given treats.  I think she even used the word "skid-dish" when she described how Lucy was around other people, even members of her own family. 

Well...Lucy, you had only met me once prior to the move in, and now...she is my pal.  Lucy takes treats from me, lets me pick her up, lets me pet her, and has even slept on my feet. 

Initially Lucy just hissed at Maddux and Irish.  Poor Maddux, our resident Lothario...he was sooo trying to woo Lucy.  He followed her everywhere, she would just hiss at him.  Irish was constantly on the attack when Lucy was out.

Now...Lucy is breaking up cat fights between Irish and Maddux.  My girlfriend saw Irish and Maddux fighting at the top of the stairs and Lucy just watching...watching to make her stealth move.  She accessed the situation, jumped and landing right in the middle of the fight.  Irish and Maddux scattered, one went upstairs, the other down.  Lucy then sat guard at the top of the stairs.

Now Lucy wants to be freed from her little bed in the master bedroom closet.  She paws the door to get out, just like the other 2 cats.  She's also padding around the house, not caring if she brushes past one of the kids (early on she would hiss and run).

So the other night my girlfriend said "you broke my kitty".  And I said "great title for a blog post."
