Cooking with Schnubbs

A little know fact about me is that I love to cook. And when I say ‘little known’, I really mean that you – my blog readers – probably don’t know about my culinary skills. Others do however, which is why I’ve been knocking back offers to host my own cooking show for years. I still get lots of offers – some recent examples include hosting MasterSchnubbs, Iron Schnubbs and The Naked Schnubbs. But I digress…

In today’s post I wanted to share with you one of my top secret recipes. This little gem is packed with flavour, nutrients, protein and carbs – all requirements for a healthy growing tiger.

Cooking with Schnubbs and Wesley

It’s called ‘Baked Beans ala Schnubbs’ and is a time honoured tradition in the von Turkleberry household. Here’s the recipe:

  1. Open a can of SPC baked beans
  2. Pour into a bowl and put in the microwave for 45 seconds
  3. At the same time (this is important!) put two slices of multi-grain bread in the toaster
  4. When the 45 seconds is up, stir the baked beans and then cook for another 45 seconds
  5. When the toast pops, take it out and slather it with butter
  6. Take out the baked beans and pour over the toast
  7. Add pepper to taste.

Schnubbsational!

Australia Day

Today is Australia Day. Being the patriotic tiger I am, I like to celebrate the day. Here’s me in my way cool, Australia Day headband. And congratulations to Michael Dodson on being awarded Australian of the Year 2009.

Pizza night

Wesley and I have been busy this week, on all sort of adventures. All that fun and excitement certainly creates an appetite. As a special treat we thought we’d order in pizza tonight.

Here’s Wesley and me gong through the selections of our favourite local pizza shop. Being a healthy little tiger I always try to get the thin crust options and lots of vegetables. Yumola!

It’s good to have a little treat every now and then.

Cooking up a storm

The days are warm and sunny, so it’s perfect weather for a Schnubbs BBQ (or SchuBBsQ as I refer to it).

Here’s me getting the temperature just right before piling on the steaks. Yum!

Thanks for my birthday wishes

Thanks to everyone who sent me birthday wishes on Facebook and Twitter yesterday. I had a great day. After all the fun and excitement (and cool presents) Wesley and I sat down for an ice cream. Here’s us about to tuck into our favourite:

I’m feeling a little bit older and more mature.

Giving gifts

Yesterday was one of my flat-mate’s birthday. Boy was he surprised when he came home last night and found Wesley and me waiting with a big birthday present for him.

Wesley and I dish out the best gifts

Wesley and I were out at the shops during the day and found the perfect gift for him. We love giving gifts – it is so good to see the look of joy on their face as they unwrap their presents.

Time flies. It’s hard to believe that 3 months have gone by since I adopted Wesley. He’s such a cute, adorable little guy. He’s growing up fast, and pretty soon he’ll be too old for me to be tucking into bed each night – already he’s telling me to stop fussing over him :-)

Sometimes I just like watching him sleep – so beautiful and peaceful.

Helping out around the house

I really like hanging out with my flat-mates – they’re so cool!

One of the great things they do is have friends over for dinner, and very kindly invite me to join them. We always have a good time, and sometimes they even recognise me from some of my action films.

After we’ve had a nice dinner there’s plenty of cleaning up to do. I always pitch in and help of course. One of my favourite jobs is doing the vacuuming. Here’s a few shots of me in action.

Don’t be afraid of tigers

Sometimes people treat me cautiously because they think I might hurt them. Admittedly some of the roles I play can give the impression I’m a tough tiger, but (as I’ve said before) I’m really quite shy – I wouldn’t hurt anyone.

In fact most of us tigers are pretty shy – deep down we just want to be friends with you. And this extends to my fellow lions, panthers, leopards and other feline friends.

If you ever needed proof then check out one of my favourite videos about Christian the Lion. It’s old (from 1969, long before I was even born) but is just as true today as then:

Studying to be an MCT

Lately I’ve been getting in to more programming related stuff. I love playing with all the new .NET tools – I’m studying to become a Microsoft Certified Tiger (MCT).

One problem though has been my tiger-sight. Because most of my work is outdoors or on big movie sets I’ve never really had to view things close up for long periods of time. Turns out that I needed to get glasses for reading.

Here’s me sporting my new specs whilst I study on my tiger-puter.
