"When something is particularly great," says the Urban Dictionary, that's Ka-Blamo. Introducing the latest recipe in our Cold Turkey Cookbook, Chicken Ka-Blamo. It passed the taste test with flying colors -- the usual one paw and one thumb up -- at supper tonight. See below for recipe and calorie counts.
Tuck sweet talks the Babe as the pussycat contemplates the plate, just off screen below to the right. When a cat can't decide whether to go with the cat whisper or lunge for the entrée, that's double Ka-Blamo.
Aware that the chicken is there for the taking, Baby opts for a few extra cheek rubs before going for the jugular of Tuck's offering. Note the Tuckman's multitasking finesse, petting the puddy and balancing a mouthful of Chicken Ka-Blamo on his fork in one elegant gesture.
Okay. I'll have some now.

In a frying pan simmer leeks, garlic and mushrooms in broth and vermouth 10 minutes. Add chicken and freshly ground pepper, cover and poach -- "the surface should shimmer" -- another 15-20 minutes. Remove chicken to cutting board, slice diagonally into bite-sized pieces and cover loosely to keep warm. Continue cooking broth mixture, uncovered, until reduced by 2/3. Add snow peas, cover and cook 1 minute more. Return chicken to the pan, blend in sour cream and serve Chicken Ka-Blamo on a bed of Perfect Rice.
