Yum! Can you say that? Double Yum. When mom/dad went to Chicago back in May, Aunt Tina took them to a place called Pilot Pete’s. This restaurant was on a small airfield. You could eat in the restaurant and watch small plans come/go. It was totally neat.
Aunt Tina ordered some wings. You want them a little hot but you don’t want them swimming so bad in the sauce that you end up wearing the sauce. You know what I mean? So Aunt Tina got the sauce on the side with some blue cheese.
These wings were totally delicious and yummy. Go ahead. I won’t tell anyone if you lick the screen 🙂
Last week I told you about a restaurant that mom/dad went to with Aunt Tina a couple of months ago while visiting Chicago. This is the second half of that posting.
On this night, mom/dad split a meal. They do that a lot. On tonight’s menu it was a Fontina Pork Chop. I know – I know. I was shocked too. Thank goodness I’m not that kind of pig!
This pork chop was boneless, had fontina cheese, garlic and prosciutto ham and a mushroom marsala sauce. Mom said it was the best pig that she ever had…besides kissing me that is – snorts and rolls with piggy laughter.
They served it with garlic whipped potatoes and one of dad’s favorites – crab fried rice – which dad absolutely fell in love with!
This was the first time that mom/dad had visited this restaurant but they say they will be back for sure! Wait until next week to see the dessert – oh yum ❤
Do you see that yummy shrimp? It’s called Bang Bang Shrimp. The shrimp are crispy and tossed with a creamy spicy sauce. AND they serve the shrimp with chopsticks. How cute is that? Mom/dad said they were awesome! Can you guess what restaurant it is with the fish in the lower left hand corner?
Aunt Tina took mom/dad to this place when they last visited in May. What an awesome place it was… or maybe it was the awesome food… or MAYBE it was just the AWESOME COMPANY they had at dinner.
What week would be complete without a birthday cake picture? Mom/dad went to a local italian restaurant last week for mom’s birthday. This is a piece of wonderful cake mom got at the end of her meal. It’s called the Black Tie Mousse Cake. It has rich layers of chocolate cake, chocolate cheesecake and a creamy melt in your mouth mousse. Did mom enjoy it. YES. It was just enjoy to enjoy and share with daddy.
Living in the south, there are lots of comfort foods. But sometimes on a cold and rainy day, you want something that soothes your soul. Mom’s choice for that is grits with cheddar cheese and crumbled up turkey sausage. It’s hot, gooey and delicious. I hear your naysayers turning your nose up at grits. But let me tell you something. When done right like this, grits can be delicious! 😋
Let me just start this by saying – snorts with piggy laughter. You *never* know what I will find on mom’s i-Phone when she is not looking. Sometimes it’s things that even I can’t believe that my humans do in public in front of other people. I just don’t get it – shaking my piggy head and oinking.
Last night mom came home from work and went to bed kind of early. She just wasn’t ‘feeling it’ she said. What it was I don’t know but from the way she was looking I don’t want to feel it either. Do you know what ‘it’ is? Do share.
So while mom went to bed, she left her cell on the sofa. I crawled up beside daddy and checked it out. That’s when I found this video that mom/dad took over the weekend while shopping. Oh dear – please don’t lock my humans up for their strangeness. Let me know your thoughts my friends. Is it time to buy those fancy white jackets that tie in the back for both of them yet?
