Field Trip with Bashful

09 Nov

Do you ever wonder what Bashful does in between his globe trotting around the world?  When he does land here at the Hotel Thompson, there are certain events on his calendar that he maintains.  But over the weekend, mom/dad decided to take him for the Penny Game.  You don’t know what that is?  Check out my blog here where I posted about it over the weekend.

So they gave the penny to Bashful for the flipping.  Let’s just say that was interesting all in itself.  Every time he flipped the penny, he flipped himself – snorts.  But he led them to an area that was full of restaurants and it was dinner time so they went to Longhorns Steakhouse.  They were celebrating Bashful being home and mom needed a fill out of food.

This is Bashful talking to daddy.  They were discussing what to order because it seems that little rock was starving as well.  He said that he was thinking of something hearty and delicious – he missed mom’s southern cooking – awe.  Daddy tried to explain to him that we all missed it too because mom hasn’t been cooking southern meals too much lately – snorts with piggy laughter.

So they talked and discussed the options of something delicious to eat.  They did decide on a drink order and let me tell you, that little Bashful was thirsty.  He nearly drunk this entire glass of soda in one swallow.  I hope there is a bathroom near by.

Mommy had a coupon for a free appetizer.  Leave it my mommy to save money wherever she can!  Mom/dad chose what they call here as a Texas Tonion which are little petals of onions, battered and then deep fried.  They are then drizzled with sour cream and served with a zesty sauce.  The sauce is not too spicy but yet just enough to say hey there how you doing.  Bashful could not get enough of these things.

Mom/dad kept telling him that he didn’t want to eat too much because he had a big dinner coming his way.  He said that he could do it – he had the stomach of a rock – snorts with piggy laughter.  So he ate and ate and ate.

 Then one time, mom excused herself to go to the visit the facilities.  As in good southern fashion, both of the guys (Bashful and daddy) stood up while she got up and left.  When mom came back, she couldn’t find Bashful.

He had moved from the onion petals and was now snorting down buttered bread straight from the oven.  It was still hot and so delicious that he jumped right in to the middle and was trying to eat his way out.  Shaking my head – I’m telling you that my rock can put the food away for sure!

Mom/dad were able to snag one or two pieces of that bread before Bashful ate it all.

 Then dinner was finally served.  OMP – look at that meal!  I would not be telling the truth if I didn’t tell you that I was a little bit jealous over that meal.  Look at it – grilled to perfection.  Mom hardly ever eats steak but her iron has been down and it was recommended that she eat one or two a month.  Let me tell you, she said this steak tasted and looked so like perfection she didn’t want to mess up the picture.  Of course, Bashful helped her eat it.  And it was delicious!  Looks at the marbling and grill marks – have you seen anything so beautiful?

 Afterwards, can you believe everyone still had room for dessert?  And really who wouldn’t with this dessert.  The staff brought Bashful his own little sundae and mom/dad had peanut butter cheesecake – licking my piggy lips now.

A special thank you to Longhorns and our wonderful server Lauren who also got to meet Bashful!  THANKS!

    hahaha…what a guy. This is the Bashful I remember! He loves his southern food. I think if I grilled and deep fried a stick….he would have adored it. In spite of his hollow tummy and lust for southern food he is a total gentlestone.

      11/10/2015 at 8:58 am

      aaww – hey that sounds delicious though – a fried stick – snorts with piggy laughter. LOVE IT! Mommy actually deep fried mushrooms the other night – yummo! XOXO – Bacon

    that was a rocking idea! and even when I had no room for dessert, I wouldn’t leave this restaurant without this sundae AND the peanut butter cheesecake. That tasty food is worth every bursted Suzie Quattro Memorial Pants :o)

      11/10/2015 at 9:10 am

      Oh I agree brother. There is *always* room for some type of dessert. And mommy has been good lately so she and dad splurged on the peanut butter cheesecake. Mommy said it tasted out of this world… well with what she did get from Bashful eating everything. XOXO – Bacon

        Snorts and Squeals – those *people* need to mind their own business. Whatever happened if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all? They are apparently not loves of us anipals. Our humans love us, don’t they my nefkitty? You got some tuna? HECK YES!! I’m so glad – I know how much you love your tuna-tuna. XOXO – Bacon

        Well my sweet netkitty – you and Ladymum *always* have our support. Friends give support, shoulder to lean on and smiles and hugs. Anipals are a big part of our lives. Mom/dad said they would move the world for us and we believe them. No one else is to judge that. ❤ you my friend. XOXO – Bacon
