Mouse & Leopard

This mouse diced with death when it tucked into the lunch of a hungry leopard.

Seemingly unaware of the beast towering over it, the mischievous rodent grabbed at scraps of meat thrown into the African Leopard's enclosure.

But instead of pouncing on the the tiny intruder the 12-year-old leopard, called Sheena, appeared to be afraid of the daring mouse and kept her distance.

At one stage she tried to nudge the mouse away with her nose, but the determined little chap carried on chewing away until he was full

Excuse me? A perturbed Sheena the leopard looks on as a cheeky mouse nibbles her food at the Santago Rare Leopard Project in Hertfordshire...

....but even a gentle shove does not deter the little creature from getting his fill...

....so the mouse continued to eat the leopard's lunch and show the leopard who was boss

8 potatoes, chopped                             1 onion, chopped
2 celery ribs chopped                            2 carrots, peeled and chopped small
1 can chicken broth                               2 T dried parsley
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 cup milk
1/2 cup flour
sliced green onions, grated cheese, and chopped bacon for toppings


Put all ingredients down to and including the pepper into the crockpot. Add water to within 1" of the top of the crockpot (this recipe is for a 5 qt, so adjust accordingly). Cook on high for 8 hours. 1 hour before serving, put milk into a small conatiner with a lid, add flour and shake till well mixed. Add to the soup.

This was YUMMY!! One of my favorites so far. It is cool here so it was perfect for today (we're feeling the effects of Tropical Storm Gordon). Served it with bread. It was the first thing I've cooked in my new cp(the Talk City Sunbeam one...which I love).

Oh, and I added rosemary too, it gave it a really good flavor. I chopped the celery very small, so this would probably be a good way to sneak veggies into your kids. Also very low fat.


1 c. dry lentils                                         1 c. chopped carrot

1 c. chopped celery                               1 c. chopped onion

2 cloves garlic, minced                          1/2 tsp. dried basil, crushed
1/2 tsp. dried oregano, crushed           1/4 tsp. dried thyme, crushed
1 bay leaf                                                3 1/2 c. chicken or veggie broth 1 1/2 c. water
1 (14 1/2 oz) can Italian-style stewed tomatoes

1/4 c. snipped fresh parsley                 2 Tbs. cider vinegar


Rinse lentils. In CP place lentils, carrot, celery, onion, garlic, basil, oregano, thyme, and bay leaf. Stir in broth, water and undrained tomatoes. Cover; cook on low-heat setting for 12 hours or on high-heat setting for 5 to 6 hours. Discard bay leaf. Stir in parsley and vinegar (if desired). Makes 6 servings.

1 Bay leaf


Assemble ingredients in Slow Cooker. Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours or until beans are tender.

1/4 c. chopped onion                             1 package (10 oz.) frozen peas
2 tbsp. diced pimentos, drained          
Hot cooked rice


Combine soup, flour and peppers in crock pot, stir until smooth. Stir in chicken, celery, onion and green pepper. Cover and cook on low 7-8 hours or until meat is cooked through. Stir in peas and pimentos. Cook 30 minutes longer. Serve over rice.


4 skinless boneless chicken breasts
6 oz. frozen concentrated orange juice
1/2 t. thyme salt pepper


Place chicken in crockpot. Mix the thyme and orange juice and pour over. Cook about 4-5 hours on low. Season to taste. (If you use the frozen chicken breasts they usually don't need additional salt.)


4 Chicken breast halves, skin and excess fat removed
1/4 teaspoon salt                                   1/4 teaspon pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika                            1 tablespoon oil
1 medium onion, chopped                    1 small red pepper, chopped
1 clove of garlic, minced                       1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves
1  can crushed tomatoes                      frozen peas


Season chicken with salt, pepper, and paprika. In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and brown. Put chicken in the Crock-pot.

In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients except the peas. Pour over chicken. Cover: cook on Low 7-9 hours (High 3-4 hours) One hour before serving, add peas. Serve over rice. Makes 4 servings.



1 large chicken, cut-up                          2 c. soy sauce
2 c. vinegar                                            


Put in crockpot and cook on high 4-5 hours.


4-6 pieces chicken (boneless breasts)  1 bottle BBQ sauce
1/2 cup white vinegar                            1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. mesquite seasoning                    1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2-1 tsp. red pepper flakes                 


Mix BBQ sauce with all ingredients listed under it. Place chicken in crockpot. Pour sauce over all.

Cook slowly in crockpot about 4-6 hours. Serve with baked beans, potato salad and coleslaw.

NOTE: Since this didn't specify whether it should be on high or low, the first time I cooked on high for 5 hours. The chicken was dry as dirt :( The 2nd time, dh cooked it on low for 4 1/2 hours and it was perfect.


6 boneless chicken breasts                  1/2 cup butter
1 pkg dry italian salad dressing mix     1 can golden mushroom soup
1/2 cup white wine                                 4oz. onion & chive cream cheese
pkg angel hair pasta (cook according to box directions)


Place chicken in crock pot. In sauce pan melt butter. Stir in italian salad dressing mix, soup, cream cheese & wine. Pour over chicken. Cook on low for 4-5 hours. Pour over cooked angel hair pasta or any kind of noodle you desire. (Rice works well also).


3 whole boneless chicken breasts
2 cans cream chicken soup
1 can chedder cheese soup


Remove all fat and skin from chicken; rinse and pat dry, sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Put in crockpot and add the three soups straight from the cans. Cook on low all day (at least 8 hrs) do not lift the lid. Serve over rice or noodles. We did noodles and hubby said it tasted like mac and cheese.








6 chicken breasts (boneless & skinless)
salt & pepper to taste
garlic powder, to taste
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 can cheddar cheese soup OR cheese sauce


Rinse chicken and sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Mix undiluted soup and pour over chicken in the crock pot. Cook on low 6 to 8 hours. Serve over rice or noodles.

I cooked on high for 4 hours and it was fine. I also served mine with rice.


Serves 2

Place two chicken breast halves in crockpot (frozen or thawed)

Mix together one can cream of chicken soup & half soup can of white wine; pour over chicken

Place two slices swiss cheese over top of chicken breasts (processed cheese melts and blends more easily)

Cook in crockpot for 2-3 hours (on high) or 3-4 hours (on low)

Serve over steamed rice

(This recipe is also good with a little lemon juice in place of the wine.)




2 chicken bouillion cubes, dissolved in ½ c hot water

¼ cup brown sugar                                ¼ cup vinegar

1 tbsp soy sauce                                   ½ cupt catsup

slided onion                                            salt



Enough chicken to feed your family- boneless skinless breasts or thighs work best

Place chicken in crockpot. Sprinkle with salt and top with as many onion slices as desired. Combine rest of ingredients and pour over onions. Cook on low 6 to 8 hours. Great served on potato rolls as sandwiches.







1 box rotini (or ziti), any fun, flavorful pasta will do
2 - 28-oz jars pasta sauce(one with tomato chunks works well)
1 egg                                                       1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 lb sausage                                       2 tbsp olive oil
1 C. parmesan cheese                          1/2 C italian breadcrumbs

Grease crock-pot, or spray with non-stick cooking spray. Cook rotini according to package directions, drain. Brown and drain meat. Toss pasta with olive oil. Add pasta sauce to mixture, toss well. Stir together parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, egg, 1/2 bag mozzarella cheese, and browned meat. Can sprinkle lightly with garlic powder. Beat together ricotta, 2 eggs, parmesan, parsley, salt & pepper.

2 tbs flour
1/2 tsp celery salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 can (16 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
2 cups thinly sliced carrots
1 large potato, cut into chunks
1/4 cup sherry
1/4 cup dark molasses
1 cup water


Place beef in slow cooker (crockpot). In a small bowl combine flour, celery salt, garlic powder, ground ginger, and pepper; sprinkle over beef. In a medium bowl, combine tomatoes, carrots, potatoes, sherry, molasses, and water; pour over beef. Cook on low setting for 6 to 8 hours. If desired, add 1/4 cup raisins 30 minutes before serving. Serves 4 to 6.



1.5 pounds ground round
2 (15 oz)cans tomato sauce
2 (14.5) oz cans diced tomatoes, undrained
2 (6oz) cans tomato paste
1 (8oz) package sliced fresh mushrooms, or omit
1.5 cups chopped onions
1 cup water
3/4 cup chopped green pepper
2 TBS brown sugar
2 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp ground red pepper
2 minced cloves garlic
1 beef bouillon cube


Cook meat in large skillet on medium-high until brown. Stir to crumble. Drain well and place in crockpot. Add tomato sauce and next 14 ingredients. Cover with lid and cook on high for 1 hour and low for 6-7 hours.








2 lbs top round steak, sliced thin across the grain
1 lb fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 medium onion, sliced
1/4 tsp thyme
3/4 cup dry sherry
3/4 cup beef broth (Swansons)
3/4 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp garlic salt


Put all this in the crockpot, stir well and cook on low for 8 hours. Turn heat to high and mix 1-1/2 cup sour cream 1/2 cup Wondra flour, cake flour works too, heat on high for 40 minutes.

Serve over rice or noodles.


2 lbs. stew beef                                      1/4 c. flour

1 tsp. paprika                                          4 lg. carrots

3 lg. potatoes                                          1 c. condensed beef broth

1 1/2 tsp. salt                                          1/2 tsp. pepper

1/3 c. soy sauce                                     1 lg. onion

1 can tomato sauce (8 oz.)


Layer potatoes, then carrots. Top with meat; sprinkle meat with soy sauce, salt, paprika, pepper & flour.

Spread with chopped onions. Combine beef broth & tomato sauce & pour overall. Cover & cook on low 7 - 8 hrs. or high 4 - 5 hrs.


Instead of sprinkling the meat with soy sauce, salt, paprika, pepper & flour as the recipes says, I mix those all together in a small bowl. This prevents the flour from becoming clumpy.

Instead of chopped onions, I use 3 or 4 small yellow onions whole (I'm not an onion fan but still like the taste they give the stew.)

I add about 1/4 cup barbecue sauce to the top, before putting the cover on. I use whatever variety of sauce that I have on hand. I don't usually buy the "regular" flavor of any brand, but instead have hickory, brown sugar or garlic and onion flavors. The BBQ sauce adds an extra "kick" to the meat and gravy.

For the beef broth, since I don't usually keep that on hand, I dissolve 1 beef bouillon cube into 1 cup boiling water.




1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef                    3 slices bacon, diced

1 small onion, chopped                         2 tbs flour

1/4 tsp paprika                                       1 tsp salt

1 can (10 3/4oz) condensed cream of mushroom soup  

2 tbs dry red wine                                  1 cup dairy sour cream
6 to 8 hamburger buns, toasted and buttered


In large skillet, brown beef and bacon until red color disappears. Drain. In crockpot, mix together drained beef, bacon, onion, flour, paprika, and salt. Stir in undiluted soup and wine. Cover pot and cook on low 4 to 5 hours. Stir in sour cream. Spoon mixture over toasted buns. Serves 6 to 8.


2-3 pounds roast cut into bite sized pieces
1 packet Lipton's Onion soup mix
2 cans Cream of mushroom soup


Place pieces of roast in crock pot. Sprinkle packet of onion soup on meat. Cover with cream of mushroom soup. Let cook up to 9 hours. Stir about 1/2 way through cooking (but I'm sure you could just stir at the end). Serve over mashed potatoes or pasta


1 pork roast (or beef)
Juice of 1 lemon
1 small onion, cut up
1 teaspoon sugar
1 bottle barbecue sauce


Cook roast covered in water (start with hot water) in crockpot overnight on low 10-12 hours. Pour off water and pull meat into shredded pieces. Saute onion in a little butter. Combine barbecue sauce, onions, sugar and juice of lemon with meat in crockpot and cook on high for 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours, or on low for 3 to 6 hours.


1 cup chopped celery                            1 medium onion chopped
1 Tbsp. butter

Saute until golden brown.

2 tbsp vinegar                                        1 Tbsp. brown sugar

3 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce             1 Tbsp. lemon juice

1 tsp. salt (optional)                               1 tsp. mustard

1 cup ketchup                                        1 cup water

2 lbs. ground beef


Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan. Cook slowly for 2 -2½ hours. (Is better reheated)



First I make a batch of homemade:

George's Bar-Be-Que Sauce

1 TBS liquid smoke                               crushed garlic
1 large onion chopped                          2 TBS cider venegar
1 TBS loose brown sugar (not packed) 3 TBS fresh squeezed lemon juice
1-14 oz. bottle of ketchup                     1/2 tsp chili powder
4 TBS worchestershire                          1 TBS dry mustard powder
1 cup water or red wine                         1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper                              1 TBS honey


Mix together and heat on range.

Then prep the brisket by removing all silver skin if the butchere didn't already do this, place it in the CP, pour the homemade sauce over it and let it go on low. The length of time cooking will depend on how large a brisket you got.

When done, remove lid from CP and using two forks shred the brisket. Terrific served on rolls or buns. It's also good served like tacos with all the trimmings in soft or regular taco shells.


1 3/4 c flour                                             2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda                               1/2 tsp salt
1/3 c shortening                                     2/3 c sugar
2 eggs, well beaten                               1 1/2 c banana, well mashed, overripe
1/2 c walnuts, coarsely chopped



Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. With electric beater on low, fluff shortening in a small bowl, until soft and creamy. Add sugar gradually. Beat in eggs in a slow stream. With a fork, beat in 1/3 of the flour mixture, 1/2 the bananas another 1/3 of the flour mixture, the rest of the bananas then the last of the flour mixture. Fold in walnuts. Turn into a greased and floured baking unit or a 2 1/2 quart mold and cover.

Place on a rack in crockpot. Cover crockpot, but prop the lid open with a toothpick or a twist of foil to let the excess steam escape. Cook on HIGH for 4 to 6 hours. Cool on a rack for 10 minutes. Serve Warm

Wash apples, peel, core, cut into eighths; place in bottom on crock. Combine bread cubes, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, sugar, butter; toss together. Place on top of apples in crock. Cover. Place crock into outer shell. Cook on low setting 2 to 4 hours. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

4 to 6 apples, quartered                        1/4 cup apple / orange juice
3 Tbl brown sugar                                  1 tsp ground ginger


Place apple quarters on bottom of CP. Place roast on top. Sprinkle w/salt & pepper. Combine apple juice, sugar & ginger. Spoon over roast, covering entire top. Cover & cook on LOW 10-12 hrs. TASTY! :o) The apples will look gross, but they are tasty too.

Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl with a fork or pastry cutter and sprinkle over apple mixture. Cover and cook on high for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, until apples are tender. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped topping.

Place all ingredients in large crock pot (cut meat in half if necessary). Stir to mix.

Cook on high for 4 to 5 hours on high or 8 to 10 hours on low. Remove meat and vegetables and some of the cooking liquid. Slice meat thinly across the grain. Serve with the vegetables and some of the liquid.

Use left over corn beef the next day.....layer in crock pot with sauerkraut and swiss cheese. Warm and serve on rye bread with 1000 Island dressing!


2 Cups Milk                                             1/3 Cup Rice
1/4 Cup Sugar                                        1 Egg
1 tsp. Butter                                            1 tsp. Vanilla

Drain juice from tomatoes into measuring cup. Add tomoatoes garlic and onions to crock pot STIR let simmer on high for 30 minutes

Add cumin, oregeno, and chili powder to crock pot and stir.

Blend juice and enough water to equal 1 1/2 cups liquid and flour stir into meat/veggie mixture. Let cook on LOW for 3-4 hours until sauce is nice and thick (if you like runnier gravy three hours is good) Serve with warm flour tortillas.

To serve: ladle chili into bowls. Top with optional shredded cheese and/or sour cream, if desired.

Note: This can be made on top of the stove, too. Let it cook for 1 hour, but stir, so it doesn't stick to the bottom (this is the nice part of using a CP...no need to worry about sticking).

All in a days work

 It  all started this morning when I
  Made breakfast for the cranky  youngsters

   and fed the baby a bottle  

   She dribbled milk all over  herself and my new blouse

   I loaded up the kids in the  car seat and took them to daycare & school  

   I was late for work, and  traffic was a nightmare  
   My husband called my cell  phone to tell me
 he got laid off from his  construction job

   I got to the office (I'm a  Tech Analyst)

   My supervisor chewed me out  

   for misplacing the mouse  

   I went out for lunch and got  caught in the rain

   I left work early to pick up  my new eye glasses (wrong size)

   I then picked up the kids from  school & daycare


   Fed them all a quick meal  

   Drove the boys to karate  lessons

   And, then the girls to tap  & ballet

   When we got back home, all  they wanted to do was watch TV
   and, sing karaoke instead of  doing their homework

   After much chaos, they took  their baths & got ready for bed

   And after much hounding, they  brushed their teeth

   Then I read them their nightly  bedtime stories

   They finally went to sleep  
So, I tried doing some  aerobics in the living room

   Uh oh, I don't think all the  'fast-food' and
 exercise is agreeing with me  

Now, I think I'm  getting a migraine

   and, a runny nose  

   I'm pretty certain it's the  flu

   After a long and grueling day,  I crawled
 into bed and was just drifting  off when

   I realized I had forgotten  my prayers
Dear Lord, despite the  topsy-turvy day
  I've had, I give thanks to  you  and  
  For all the blessings you've  bestowed upon me and my family. 

   And next week, I'm off to the  spa and pool for some
 much-needed rest and  relaxation with my friend

   That is how my day went, how about yours?
