Travels in the South

 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 🙂

Travels in the South

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.

Travels in Chicago

Do you remember last week when mom/dad talked about the bacon pancakes they got at a restaurant in Chicago called Richard Walkers Pancake House“?  This meal was at the same restaurant.  Amazing huh?  Steak, eggs and hashbrowns.  Daddy was in heaven…. and so was mommy too.  Of course she had a couple of bites here/there in between bacon pancakes.  So what do you think?  Breakfast of Champions?

Paw Time with Houdini

So since mom/dad deserted went to Chicago, Illinois last week, us anipals got to go to Nana’s for a somewhat vacation of our own. This is me telling Nana’s dog Dingo all about the treatment we got.  Dingo completely understood.  But I’m a creative genius cause you know I made the best out of the situation.  I would like to tell you how but sometimes thinks that happen at Nana’s must be kept at Nana’s.  It’s the Nana Code.  You can spill how much more spoiled Nana makes you.  Seriously.  I’m sure you understand.  But mom/dad have come home now – thank goodness.  And it looks like mom/dad had a great time.  So for now, I leave you with Jokes with Daddy.  Enjoy my friends!

Fun with Sherlock

Really mom?  It’s not enough that you and daddy left all of us anipals and went to Chicago, Illinois.  But now I find this video on your phone that shows me ya’ll were having fun without me?  Really, how could you?  Then again, I’m not a trained dog like Sherlock Bones.  I don’t ‘catch’.  That’s only for amateurs – snorts with piggy laughter.

What?!

Hello friends of the Hotel Thompson.  This is Sherlock Bones reporting in from Chicago, Illinois.  Do you remember who I am?  I am Bacon, Houdini’s and Hemi’s cousin (my mom is Bacon’s mom’s sister).  WOW – that’s a lot to follow isn’t it?  Well guess what?  The gang’s mom/dad are not at the Hotel Thompson.  The gang of anipals are at Nana’s for a couple of days.  Why do you ask?

Because I have kidnapped them and they are magically here with me… and my two purr things – Poseidon and Marmalade.  Trust me, we are all taking good care of the pawrents.  We won’t let them get into too much trouble… but considering Bacon’s dad I think that asks for way too much, right?   And we all know where Bacon’s dad will be.  At any spectacular restaurant he can find – howls with laughter!  So stay tuned next week.  I’m sure there will be lots of details to spill.
