Now we all know that my parents are strange. They do strange things. They say strange things. And, they watch strange things. Take for instance a couple of weeks ago. They got up early one Sunday morning and was watching television in the front room. What were they watching? A special on Caligula on the History Channel. Sure, doesn’t everyone get up at the butt crack of dawn to watch the History Channel on the weekend? See what I’m talking about now?
There they were watching the show and the narrator said that Caligula got sick and it was very serious. At that exact moment, dad’s iPad came on and Siri said, “I am serious.” What the cream cheese?! Out of the blue Siri said this – no one was touching the iPad – it was on top of the chest at the front door.
Thanks Siri for scaring the crap out of all of us. Yep, we are serious too.
Thanks to everyone for participating in mine and Fozzie‘s Shopping Around the World. It’s so awesome to see the various prices, recipes and pictures of food from around the world!
This month was a free for all. Five items of your choice for any meal or dessert or appetizer – it’s your choice.
Knowing this, my mom went all out – snorts. I am going to tell you about the hottest thing that mom has eaten lately. She gets this salad every.chance.she.can. Notice I said “get” and not “fix” – snorts with piggy laughter. Okay, this month mommy is cheating by not fixing this delectable, gorgeous salad. She has been on this DIEt thing lately – not only to lose weight but to get a few of her numbers down in her bloodwork.
Well, my daddy is a meat eater – go figure huh? There is a local steakhouse that he absolutely loves to go to and will jump at the chance anytime he can. But here’s the great spot, mom loves this Strawberry Pecan salad they have and she says it’s a meal for her. What daddy does is order his steak and upgrades his salad to this masterpiece for like less than $2.50 – can you believe that?! That way, daddy gets his Flintstone steak and mom gets her beautiful salad.
And on this beautiful salad is red onions, grapes, strawberries, pecans, oranges and lettuce. It is topped with a strawberry vinaigrette. Can you taste it? I told mommy that this little oinker wouldn’t even mind this salad for dinner. What about you?
