Travels in Chicago

Oh friends – I have a good one for you today.  But for some reason, mom says I can’t be part of it.  She wants to talk about it.  So without further ado – take it away mom ❤


Thanks Bacon.  Friends, for obvious reasons in the pictures below you can tell why I didn’t want Bacon here today.  No oinker should be around alcoholic beverages – LOL.  No really there is b.a.c.o.n. involved in this posting and I didn’t want the little guy to get his feelings hurt.  Carrying on with our Chicago, Illinois trip several months ago, I wanted to share a breakfast place that we went to for some fabulous food.  There is a restaurant close to my sister called Richard Walker’s Pancake House.  If you are near one, RUN to it.  They have the most fab food ever.

Of course every good breakfast needs to start with a solid drink.  Today was no exception.  We are on vacation and vacation knows no time.  My sister started with a Blood Mary with a slice of bacon.  THUD!  To say this restaurant has fabulous bacon is an understatement!  Mix that bacon with vodka and you have a party starting up right there and then.  I started with a Mimosa… gotta keep that orange juice flowing, right?  And of course the hub was the designated driver – snorts – so he had a Coke Zero straight up.

The muffin you see in the picture – that is a carrot cake muffin.  Gobble nom nom.  It was delicious!  We cut it all up and shared it together.  All it was missing was some cream cheese icing on top of it.

What we ate for entrees:

My sister went for the pancake looking picture.  That’s actually potato pancakes that was made from Idaho potatoes with a tad of fresh onion and served with applesauce and sour cream.  Now, before you go eeww, you have to try it before you knock it.  I was like yeah okay until I was personally hand fed a bite with sour cream.  Now I can’t get them out of my mind and want some…daily!  So yes upon our return trip to Chicago, this place is on the list for some potato pancakes.

I went boring style with scrambled eggs with cheese and bacon.  Okay the bacon wasn’t boring.  It was the most delicious bacon I’ve ever tasted here in the states and that’s saying a lot.

The hub unit went for the Classic Eggs Benedict.  Underneath that sinful hollandaise sauce was canadian bacon and poached eggs.  He made more grunting noises eating that meal than certain people make on certain television shows.  That’s all we are going to say about that – HAHAHAH

So I gotta ask – what was your favorite meal/picture?

That’ll Teach The Little Elf Freak

Meow our fellow followers.  Hemi here for your amusement.  We told you the little freak Don Juan would go down.  We may have pushed him over the edge last night.  Talk about getting even.

We waited until everyone here at the Hotel Thompson went to sleep.  In fact, we even acted like we were sleeping.  Then when darkness came down and the snoring from the humans started, me and Houdini crept into the living room to wait for the creep.. I mean Don Juan to make his nightly visit.

That’s when we heard him.  He was in the liquor cabinet.  That is strictly off limits.  You have to be over five feet to enter that zone and trust me guys – he is not.  He barely makes it over 10 inches.  He crawled up into the cabinet and made himself a Bloody Mary – one of mom’s precious favorites.

When he wasn’t looking, I put some Tabasco sauce in the drink.  Have you heard of the book Fifty Shades of Grey?  Well, that little rascal turned fifty shades of various red after choking down the hot sauce.  Meows and rolls around laughing.  Score for the ninja kitty!

Day 1 of DIEt

 God help us here at the Hotel Thompson.

Dad just called mommy at the worky place to check on her and how she is doing on day 1 of the great DIEt.  She snarled.  No really.  She snarled.  She told daddy quote, “This detox crap sucks to the high *$*!))”  Yep, I can’t repeat that last part.  Poor mom.

She’s eating but visions of what she wants versus what she is getting is not putting pictures of sugar plum in her mind.  If only carrots tasted like her favorite food – then all would be well in the world.

I’m thinking daddy may have to fix her a big drink and have it ready when she gets home.  Something that is not fattening but something that she likes… pondering.  Perhaps a Bloody Mary with green olives.  Tomato juice is good, vodka is good and who wouldn’t want that mixture together after a first day?  Thoughts?
