Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –
May 10th – the perfect holiday for ALL parents far and near. If you have kids, you can relate to this National Clean Up Your Room Day. The kids may think that everything in their ‘organized’ room is treasure and things they will need tomorrow but we all know that plate, one sock, various toys and Lego’s and clothes are things that need to be cleaned up. Sometimes the mess is so bad that you can’t walk through the room and stuff is packed under the bed, the dresser and the closet is overflowing. How do these kids live in this mess?!
To mom and dad’s delights everywhere – today is National Clean Up Your Room. Get out your shovels and pull the truck up to their window. It’s time for everyone to clean their rooms. Especially that Bacon, he’s not perfect either. I took a picture of that little fellows room before his mom got to it when she got home from work. WOW – that’s all I can say. I can just imagine the places I could hide some nuts in that room – chitter chatter.
P.S. my friends. This day also applies to adults. Kids make sure you check your parents rooms as well. Fair play is fair play !

The Olde Courthouse Tavern that is – snorts with piggy laughter. This is Wednesday so welcome to Travels in the South my friends. Mom/dad heard about this fabulous restaurant that is a couple of towns over from us called the Olde Courthouse Tavern. They met some friends and visited it a while back and I’ll tell you something, their food porn pictures made my little tummy rumble with excitement. I’m actually going to have to break up this restaurant in a couple of weeks – there was way too many yum yum’s to share. So today, we are going to start with some appetizers.
Dad is a sucker for fried cauliflower. At this point in his life, if this is the only way that mom can get dad to eat his veggies, so be it – snorts with piggy laughter. The restaurant cuts up cauliflower, batters it (of course here in the south you should learn by now we batter and fry anything and everything) and fry until golden brown. They serve the fried cauliflower with a creamy horseradish sauce on the side. Of course, mom/dad asked for extra sauce. Now again, dad has had his share of fried cauliflower over the years so the question is how did this rank with him? Between grunts of yum and rumblings of I can’t get enough, dad said that the restaurant scored BIG time on this appetizer. Dad said it was some of the best fried cauliflower that he has had in some time. Mom was surprised as well. The bites were cut small enough for one bite and the horseradish sauce had just enough kick to say hello without setting your mouth on fire. Both mom/dad loved it!
Anywhere that mom goes and sees pretzels, she has to try them. This restaurant has traditional salt pretzels served with beer cheese sauce, one of mom’s favorites. Mom is pretty picky when it comes to her pretzels. If she is going to indulge in any bread product, it better be good. What did mom say about these? She loved them! The pretzels had just enough salt – they weren’t overpowered like some can be that you immediately need water and they had enough salt where you could taste the salt. The beer cheese was creamy and really added to the pretzels. Even dad couldn’t keep his hands off these pretzels. So score two out of three so far.
Now for the onion rings. Out of the three appetizers, everyone agreed that the onion rings were the least favorite. Don’t get them wrong. They were tasty and crunchy. They looked as fantastic as they tasted. However, they just didn’t have the same pizazz that the other two appetizers had. Yes they would get them again but they wouldn’t be at the top of mom/dad’s list. Now join us next week to check out some entrees that everyone enjoyed – you don’t want to miss it!
