Mom and Dad’s Weekend Adventure

25 Aug


I’ve told you before my friends.  My mom and dad have lost it. Totally.  This past weekend was one of “those” adventures – snorts.  They were looking for some adventure and wanted to try a place they had never been to before.  So they took off in Albert, mom’s little Smart car, and hit the highway.  Almost sounds like a song huh – snorts.

They ended up at this place called Mellow Mushroom – it’s a pizza joint which was right up dad’s alley.  He ❤ pizza.  Mom was somewhat reluctant.  First off because they sat right beside exhibit A to the left.  Pardon me while I say this but does that ‘mushroom’ look psychedelic?  It was kind of disturbing in a weird sense of direction.  Mom couldn’t take her eyes off of it.  There was just something about it that was just plain weird.

 That’s when mom got up to take a closer look at the psychedelic mushroom.   20140716-201449-72889500.jpg

It’s not all its cracked up to be – double snorts.  You get it – cracked up.  It really is around the head area.  What kind of restaurant is this place?  Mom shook her head, snapped a couple of pictures and sat down preparing herself for a psychedelic adventure.

P.S.  If you are ever out and about and see some crazy lady taking pictures at a restaurant, just call her mom.  That will probably be my crazy mom – she takes pictures of *everything* as you will soon see in this post.

Shakes piggy head.  At least it’s not all about me now.


20140716-201448-72888070.jpgMom has been on this DIEt thing lately.  It’s going okay. As she says, it’s all about choices.  So today she choose a Greek salad to start her meal.

Exhibit B to the left here.  She says if she starts with a good salad, it fills her so she doesn’t eat too much of a bad thing.

Which is good – I guess if you are living a DIEt kind of life.  Mom did say that this salad was delicious!  It had everything she loves – lettuce, mushrooms (which didn’t look scary like exhibit A), olives, peppers and feta cheese.


20140716-201454-72894404.jpgDad on the other hoof, went with a cheese covered pretzel.  See exhibit C here to the right.  Not only was it delicious and cheesy, they served it with a beer cheese dipping sauce.  It must have been great because daddy licked the cheese sauce dry and there were no crumbs left from the pretzel.

 Which is good because mommy kept watching him waiting for something to drop.  So much for eating a nice decent sensible salad huh?


Now cam20140716-201452-72892352.jpge the main course.  Mom and dad can never agree upon toppings for their pizza.  There solution is to always get a pie 1/2 and 1/2.  That way mom can have what she wants and dad can have what he wants.  May I present to you exhibit D to the left.  Drum roll – tongue hanging out – deliciousness.

Mom got the top side.  She ❤ white pizza with cheese, garlic and tomatoes – what’s not to love right?

Dad on the other hoof got the bottom side.  He gets the works… something this little piggy can’t discuss and think about.  But it looks good.  Of course a lot of pizza made it’s way home for lunch the next day.

You have to admit though, mom had hesitation at first with seeing the psychedelic mushroom – or maybe it was because of the psychedelic mushroom – the food was delicious!

    hahaha….I wouldn’t care if a crack head psyched up mushroom was there…..not with delish food like that. I hope mom and dad shared some pizza with you Bacon.

    Gosh Bacon that cracked headed THING on top of the mushroom is a tad disturbing but not SO disturbing that it put your Mom and Dad “off their food” ! Looks like a feast was had all even though your Mom opted for a more “healthy” version of nommy food from the restaurant! Did you get a piggy bag?

    Hugs, Sammy

      Snorts. Yep – dad got a piggy box. Mommy gave me one slice of her garlic pizza. It was delicious! XOXO – Bacon

    Wow! What an adventure! Mom is never on a diet, and she is 100% on board with the cheese pretzel. A little crack-headed monster would not deter her. Plus I would like to share it….

    Love and licks,

      Snorts. It was definitely a fun restaurant. It was right up dad’s alley because he ❤ pizza. Of course, mom's garlic slices were nommy. She gave me a slice when she got home. I highly recommend it! XOXO – Bacon

      Snorts. Mom says she does her DIEt 90%-10%. 90% of the time she tries to eat right and good food. But there’s that 10% of the time she lets go and has what she wants. I guess it’s working for her. She seems happier knowing that she’s not DIEting per say. XOXO – Bacon
      P.S. But today is *your* birthday. You do know that there are NO calories on your birthday. Eat what you want and have FUN!

      It was. Daddy is a huge fan. It was his first time and he said for sure it wouldn’t be his last time. I think they may have a stalker now in daddy – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Must say your mom and dad find the cutest places! Yum, that sald looks good! And so does the pretzel (do you like those Bacon?). Grrrr, dad has some (won’t say the word….) “stuff” on his pizza!

    • PigLove

      08/25/2014 at 10:19 am

      I know – dad always has ‘stuff’ on his pizza that I can’t eat. But mom’s side was most excellent. She gave me some garlic pizza and it was delicious to this little piggies lips. So fantastic. Mom also said the next time, she will bring me home a pretzel. It looked delicious and dad said the beer cheese was out of this world! Must try that for sure. XOXO – Bacon
      P.S. One *never* knows where my mom/dad will end up at on their little adventures in Albert – snorts

    Outside of the tripped out mushroom, the food looks fantastic. Glad your Mom was brave enough to stay and eat. Have a great Monday my friend!

      Thank you my friend. My humans do seem to find trouble and the bestest of all places to eat at – that is definitely for sure. You gotta love them for their adventure. XOXO – Bacon

    I must laugh as I saw the mushroom and as I read pizza joint ( a reefer is called joint here lol) i would like that pretzel, it screams: eat me, Easy!

      08/25/2014 at 10:22 am

      Snorticles – that is too funny Easy. It was definitely a neato restaurant to the max with that psychedelic animated mushroom. Dad said that pretzel was the bomb – especially with the beer cheese that came with it. Mom wants to try one next time – and she said she would bring me one home. XOXO – Bacon

        Great! maybe she can bring you two and you could eat one for me?

        08/25/2014 at 10:46 am

        oohh squeals! That sounds like a plan my brother. How is the household feeling this morning. Are they feeling any better? XOXO – Bacon

        Snorticles – sounds like an awesome plan to me my friend. Go mark it – I mean it’s yours anyway, right? Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

      Yep – I think you would be correct. Mom/dad enjoyed the food and I enjoyed my piggy go box. It was delicious – who cares of that mushroom looks psychedelic – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
