Travels in the South

02 Mar

Hello my sweet friends.  Have I got a treat for you!  You’ve been told that we had guests this past week – and trust me – it was a LOT of fun for sure.  Just like sharing my Travels to Israel with you last month, now we will be doing an edition of Travels in the South with our friends.  Yep, nods head, mom/dad did that much with our friends.

Okay you are saying, “Fine pig, who visited then?”  Well, you have to wait no more.  Do you know Shoko and Kali from Canadian Cats?  Well their mom/dad (Jean and Bill) visited Atlanta and my mom/dad got to play with them – snorts with piggy laughter.  And I will tell you one thing my friends.  I’ve seen some of their pictures on the ‘cloud’.  All I have to say is OMP!  It was a hoot!

So they got here late Wednesday 2/17/2016.  My mom had a ‘friend’ pick them up special from the airport.  Snorts – you’ll have to read about that from Jean and Bill cause it was a special pick up indeed.  The friend brought Jean and Bill to mom’s office where mom gave them a quick tour of the facility before taking them to check in at their hotel.  Afterwards, mom went home and got dad so they could go out for dinner (one of many fun times).

They decided to go to a local restaurant called Red Lobster.  Knowing that Jean and Bill had been traveling all day, mom wanted to make sure they were well fed so they could get some sleep.

Jean and Bill both got Garlic Grilled Shrimp which were huge (you can see some in the picture).  Although, as a side dish Bill got Bourbon Pecan Sweet Potatoes – you know something of the south which we love here.

Jean got the side dish of Creamy Langostino Lobster Mashed Potatoes which also happens to be one of mom’s favorites.  They were delicious but we didn’t take a picture – can you imagine that?  It was creamy mashed potatoes topped with lobster pieces and mom said she thought she heard angels sing when they were delivered to the table cause they are that good – snorts.

One thing that mom/dad said that Jean and Bill *had* to try was lobster pizza as an appetizer.  And mom just happened to have a coupon for one – go mom.  Now, it is something that you have to wrap your mind around but once you do – OMP – they say it is wonderful… not that I would know because none of it has ever made its way to me.  Just sayin’.

It comes out on a thin crust and it’s hot from the oven.  You kind of have to give it a moment to set up before getting a slice.  If not, it just goo’s all over the place.  What did Bill and Jean think of the lobster pizza?

Well I think it was a winner from looking at this picture.  What do you think?

And don’t worry – Jean found something else that she had never tried before – Lobster Bisque.  Jean and daddy had a bowl and there were pieces of Langostino lobster in the soup as well.

Daddy said that he had never seen so much lobster in the bowl before. Maybe that was because mom/dad had their favorite waitress Lexus waiting on them?  Who knows – it was delicious!

Now join us next week to find out what everyone did the next day of their visit – you definitely don’t want to miss it!

      Snorts with piggy laughter. If anything during these 9 days of playing, they were not healthy… unless you count the amount of walking they did. That has to account for something, right? Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

Thank you, June and Jim for making a great relationship better and by showing us Southern Hospitality and helping us making lots of memories.
