Last November, mom/dad traveled to Chicago, Illinois. Or should I say, mom planned a trip and told dad absolutely nothing about it until the car came and picked them up at the Hotel Thompson the morning of departure. Mom had already packed everything for their adventure. Why Chicago? Well first up, my Aunt Tina lives there with my cousin Sherlock Bones. Second up, daddy has *always* wanted to go to Ditka’s Chicago. Are you asking yourself what is that? Well Mike Ditka is a former football player, was an awesome coach and a television commentator. He coached the Chicago Bears back in the day which was one of dad’s favorite teams.
In the next couple of weeks, we will be highlighting some of the food that everyone enjoyed during their trip to Ditka’s Chicago.
Welcome back my friends as we continue our trip in Chicago to Ditka’s Chicago. Today I want to show you something that Aunt Tina ordered at this fabulous restaurant. Do you see that picture? Does that not look like a rack of Fred Flinstone ribs? So tender and so wonderful – served with a side of fries to the left of the plate. Can you say WOW look at all of that food? And the picture really doesn’t do it justice because it was such a huge plate of goodness.
Make sure you come back next week to see what mom/dad split at the restaurant. Oh my goodness – so much more yummy!!
And remember I told you that this entire trip was a surprise for daddy? Watch this video for his reaction… and next week I’ll show you something that happened to them at the airport – you won’t want to miss that my dear friends!
March 7 is NATIONAL CEREAL DAY.. you know breakfast cereal. Did you know that cereal is the most convenient form of breakfast? It’s quick and easy. Get a bowl, pour cereal, top with milk and enjoy! And, there’s so many different kinds of cereal out there! You can add fruit to it. You can top it with nuts or raisins. You can top it with granola. You can even add honey, maple syrup or crushed fruit. However you eat it, it can be a delicious way to start your day or end your day.
Now, I know this is going to be hard to believe but hang with me for just a minute. That pig – you know the one they call Bacon on this blog. This is a picture of his piggy chow in his breakfast bowl that he gets every morning. Do you know what the little oinker has on top of his piggy chow? Anyone – anyone at all? Cheerios! Can you believe that?! Even Bacon will be enjoying this day like all others with a topping of Cheerios on his piggy chow. He doesn’t care what kind, he likes them all! Regular, chocolate, banana nut, multi-grain, dulce de leche, peanut butter – all of them!
I mean think about it. Cheerios are not just for the heart conscious adults – it’s for the little man too. He has to watch his heart and health so he can be here for a very long time as well. Bacon and his mom eat their Cheerios together every morning… of course his mother doesn’t have piggy chow added to hers which is good to know.
So on this National Cereal Day, enjoy a nice bowl of cereal – perhaps even Cheerios and think about the little pig.
