Travels in the South

We all know by now that dad has no limits when it comes to eating.  He doesn’t get these things every day or sometimes not even every week.  But this is another one of his favorites – blackberry pancakes with whip cream.  Of course there is thousands of worth of calories in this dish – that dad gets either for breakfast or dinner.  And no he never finishes it all but enjoys every bite he can get down.  And we won’t talk about how he flies like a kite the rest of the day if he eats it for breakfast.  Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter.

Travels in the South

These days, mom/dad often will go out and share a dinner.  Neither one of them want a full meal but yet both of them want something good – makes sense huh?  Let’s look at this nights decision.  Mom/dad ordered a steak with grilled shrimp.  Looks awesome, right?  How did they split the meal?

Dad went for the steak and baked potato.  Mom went for the grilled shrimp and a side salad.  Perfect decision huh?  See mom can make somewhat good decisions in her food choices.  I was beginning to doubt her – snorts and rolls with piggy laughter.

Do your parents split meals too when they go out?

Mom/Dad Spotted Santa!!

OH MY PIGGY HEAVENS!!

Mom/Dad went out with friends last night.  They were riding around after dinner looking at the beautiful Christmas lights.  Somehow, they got off the beaten road.  It was dark – the only light was from their friends high beams on their car.  That’s when all of a sudden, reindeer flew in front of their car.  I mean FLEW.  Can you believe that?!

Santa is real!

They pulled off the side of the road and looked for them but didn’t see anything else.  Oh my piggy heavens above!  Tonight on television, they will have Santa tracker.  I can honestly say that mom/dad have already tracked Santa.  WOWZER!

So my friends – keeping looking up in the sky and let me know if you see him too.

Cheese Pizza Day!

 

 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!

 .

.

Today, September 5th is Cheese Pizza Day – YAY!  That’s what this squirrel is talking about.  Who doesn’t like pizza – especially cheese pizza?  Do you remember the movie Home Alone?  What was Kevin’s favorite pizza?  CHEESE PIZZA.  The basics of a wonderful pizza with all of that gooey cheesy awesomeness!  Pizza has to be one of the most popular dinner meals there is – it’s quick and easy.  Whether you make it yourself from scratch, with a little help from the store in a crust or delivery and/or pick up.  It can be thick crust, deep dish or thin crust.  What do you like?  At the Hotel Thompson, they prefer stuffed crust – with extra cheese.  Licks lips and gets plate ready to go see if I can ‘borrow’ a slice or two for my family 🙂  chitter-chatter – It’s what I do as a squirrel.

So tonight to celebrate – What do you want on your pizza?

Shopping Around the World

Hello sweet friends.  Welcome to another edition of Shopping Around the World.  This month we are highlighting things that we cook in this hot weather outside.  So without further ado, here is mom – take it away mom!

What we have this month is a meal that keeps on giving – LOL.  Friday morning before work, I put a beef roast in the oven.  I got a nice beef roast (around 3 pounds) at the market for around $14.00.  That night when I got home, I cut all of the meat up and put it aside.  In the meantime, I took a head of lettuce ($0.98 head) and chopped it all up placing it in a huge bowl.  On this date, I didn’t add anything extra – just the salad mix so far.  I then poured in some 1000 Island salad dressing into the lettuce (probably 1/3 bottle for the entire salad $0.34).  I tossed and coated all of the salad with the dressing.  At this time, you can add a little more if you need it.  Just make sure your lettuce is coated.

I then used some big plates and put some salad into the plates.  Next up, the beef that I had previously sliced was put on top of the salad.  Just as a garnish, I took some barbeque sauce I had on hand and drizzled it over the beef.  There you go – dinner is served.  The entire meal cost $15.32 and we had salads for two all weekend in this heat.

Shopping Around the World – Reminder

Hello sweet friends ❤  Did you miss Shopping Around the World in May?  I know we did – snorts.  I tell you things have been going on weird here at the Hotel Thompson for the past couple of months – but I digress.  That’s another posting for another day.

Shopping Around the World is back for June and with a new badge courtesy of Phenny’s dad. (Huge shout out and thanks to them ❤ )  Please feel free to share and use this badge on your blog postings for Shopping Around the World.

For June we are going to focus on something that you have cooked lately that you absolutely went bonkers for and everyone enjoyed.  This could be anything – even a cheese cracker.  Just make it the best cheese cracker you ever had and post prices… and pictures are awesome.  That gives us something to drool on while we read your recipe.

So my friends.  That’s your assignment for June.  We will all post Shopping Around the World on Friday, June 30th.  Remember to link back to my blog so everyone can check your postings out.   Can’t wait to read your recipe!
