We Got Mail

Squeals with piggy excitement.  Don’t you just get overly excited when you get mail?  I know this little oinker does.  Heck, I’m on a first snort basis with our mailman.  I think he gets as excited as I do when he sees an envelope made out to this little piggy.  And what was it and who was it from you are asking yourself?

Wait no longer.  I got the world.  Snorts with piggy laughter – okay maybe not the ‘world’… but I did get Australia.  Okay maybe not the entire Australia – how about a snow globe of Australia.  And who was it from?  It was from my bestest Auntie Sharon in the entire world.  You know Auntie Sharon from gentlestitches.  Isn’t she the best and so awesome for thinking of little old me?  I just want to jump in an airplane and go thank her in person… but there’s too many layovers and I might get lost.  Wouldn’t that be something?  Can you see it now in the headlines, “Traveling oinker lost in connections.”

So Auntie Sharon – I’m sending you loads of hogs and snout kisses.  Forgive me okay if I didn’t send you an email right away.  Mom has been under the weather.  It’s hard enough to keep daddy in check these days but we all know when the mommy is down, the house is down.  Much love my sweet friend ❤

National Deviled Eggs Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!

.

Now today is a day that I know Bacon can wrap his piggy mouth around.  November 2nd is National Deviled Eggs Day.  mmm – can you almost taste them?  Did you know that they had a holiday for this food?  Eggs are so diverse and can be used for so many different recipes.  But deviled eggs seem to make you smile – just the name makes them so well.. devilish.

They are easy to make really.  The hardest thing is shelling those little suckers to get all of the shells off.  After that, the world is at your footsteps in how you finish them.  Some people use mustard, mayonnaise, pepper flakes, pickles – however you fix them I know they will go fast.  I wonder if today I can persuade Bacon’s mom to fix us some.  What?  Squirrels like eggs too. 🙂

Travels in the South

img_8522

Hello friends – welcome to another edition of Travels in the South.  This week mom/dad went back for what they know.  They went to a local steakhouse that offers an appetizer called “Wild, Wild Shrimp”.  Better yet, mom had a coupon for this appetizer so that makes it even better, right?

These shrimp are lightly battered and friend.  They are served with different kinds of spicy peppers with a blue cheese dip dressing.  If you are like daddy, you pick the shrimp out and leave the peppers – snorts with piggy laughter.  But if you are mom, you jump feet first in and eat your way out.  Of course, this always goes well accompanied by a glass of Chardonnay, which mom had.
