Cathy Kates

Hi y'all, thanks for checking out my bio! I grew up in the country community of Wrenshall, attended church in Carlton and worked in Cloquet. I adore and respect my family. My husband and I laugh and run together (well, I jog). My daughter is in her second year of college and keeps me young and our dog Bauer is an overactive Schnauzer. I love shoes, Asian food, and trying new recipes. My dream (at the moment) is to be on the Big Bang Theory or the Ellen Show. I have been in broadcasting for 16 years and thank you for your friendship and waking up to laugh with Ken, me and the Breakfast Club. ~Peace, Love & Hugs

Why Doesn’t Grocery Store Packed Meat Come With Cooking Instructions?

My time to cook, bake and grill is always limited.  It's spaghetti, ramen, pizza or a salad at our house most of the time.  When I do find myself with an evening to cook a nice meal I head to the grocery store and try to find something we don't get very often.  There's always a nice selection of raw meat to choose from in the meat section of our local grocery stores, but how do I prepare it?

Sneaky Bow-Legged Racoon Thief Will Have You Laughing And Sharing

I saw this video shared on Facebook and it made me giggle.  I watched it again and giggled again and again.  Animals crack me up, they are literally human!  In their actions and emotions.  They show happiness with a tail-wag and remorse or embarrassment by hiding under the kitchen table when you're mad or like this racoon, they know they're being sneaky and look around to make sure no one is watching.
