Field Trip with Bashful

Do you ever wonder what Bashful does in between his globe trotting around the world?  When he does land here at the Hotel Thompson, there are certain events on his calendar that he maintains.  But over the weekend, mom/dad decided to take him for the Penny Game.  You don’t know what that is?  Check out my blog here where I posted about it over the weekend.

So they gave the penny to Bashful for the flipping.  Let’s just say that was interesting all in itself.  Every time he flipped the penny, he flipped himself – snorts.  But he led them to an area that was full of restaurants and it was dinner time so they went to Longhorns Steakhouse.  They were celebrating Bashful being home and mom needed a fill out of food.

This is Bashful talking to daddy.  They were discussing what to order because it seems that little rock was starving as well.  He said that he was thinking of something hearty and delicious – he missed mom’s southern cooking – awe.  Daddy tried to explain to him that we all missed it too because mom hasn’t been cooking southern meals too much lately – snorts with piggy laughter.

So they talked and discussed the options of something delicious to eat.  They did decide on a drink order and let me tell you, that little Bashful was thirsty.  He nearly drunk this entire glass of soda in one swallow.  I hope there is a bathroom near by.

Mommy had a coupon for a free appetizer.  Leave it my mommy to save money wherever she can!  Mom/dad chose what they call here as a Texas Tonion which are little petals of onions, battered and then deep fried.  They are then drizzled with sour cream and served with a zesty sauce.  The sauce is not too spicy but yet just enough to say hey there how you doing.  Bashful could not get enough of these things.

Mom/dad kept telling him that he didn’t want to eat too much because he had a big dinner coming his way.  He said that he could do it – he had the stomach of a rock – snorts with piggy laughter.  So he ate and ate and ate.

 Then one time, mom excused herself to go to the visit the facilities.  As in good southern fashion, both of the guys (Bashful and daddy) stood up while she got up and left.  When mom came back, she couldn’t find Bashful.

He had moved from the onion petals and was now snorting down buttered bread straight from the oven.  It was still hot and so delicious that he jumped right in to the middle and was trying to eat his way out.  Shaking my head – I’m telling you that my rock can put the food away for sure!

Mom/dad were able to snag one or two pieces of that bread before Bashful ate it all.

 Then dinner was finally served.  OMP – look at that meal!  I would not be telling the truth if I didn’t tell you that I was a little bit jealous over that meal.  Look at it – grilled to perfection.  Mom hardly ever eats steak but her iron has been down and it was recommended that she eat one or two a month.  Let me tell you, she said this steak tasted and looked so like perfection she didn’t want to mess up the picture.  Of course, Bashful helped her eat it.  And it was delicious!  Looks at the marbling and grill marks – have you seen anything so beautiful?

 Afterwards, can you believe everyone still had room for dessert?  And really who wouldn’t with this dessert.  The staff brought Bashful his own little sundae and mom/dad had peanut butter cheesecake – licking my piggy lips now.

A special thank you to Longhorns and our wonderful server Lauren who also got to meet Bashful!  THANKS!

On the Road with Bashful

BASHFUL – the rolling stone…

 

 

 

 

OMR (Oh my rock!!). This is a special edition of one of my field trips. I had to share this one as soon as possible to my friends. This little rock had the best of times this past weekend. WOW is the first word that pops in this little pebbles noggin. Okay – okay. Let me calm down … Breathing.

 First up, mom/dad took nana out for Mother’s Day.  With all of us going – including this lucky pebble, we had to take the big car.  So mom parked the little car in the yard behind the tree in the front yard.  It’s so small you can hardly see it hiding behind the tree! 

Isn’t that a hoot.

 So we all bundled up in mom’s other car, which is a small SUV, and went to pick up Nana.  See to the picture on the right, I had a perfect place to sit for the drive.  It was fun.  Every once in a while, mom/dad would reach down and pet my little noggin’… you know for safe keeping purposes.  But I’m getting used to these little field trips and I look forward to them now.

I mean after all, I’m Bashful – the rolling stone.      

 

20130512-123053.jpgNana wanted to go to this steak restaurant called Longhorns.  Trust me, there was some very long horns in this place – I was in awe!  When we first got there, I met some friends in the parking lot – they were my kind of pebbles.  Mom/d20130512-123036.jpgad let me stop and chat for awhile and took my picture. 

Then we went into the restaurant and nana gave me a kiss.  YAY – nana loves me.

 I was so hungry that I just couldn’t wait for food!  My core was rumbling – I was starving!  I was jumping all over the table eating this wonderful appetizer of a blooming onion.  Thud – it was so delicious!  Mom/dad had to keep getting on to me because I kept jumping in the sauce.  I couldn’t help it – my arms are really short – almost invisible!

I was so glad when the food arrived.  My plate was most excellent.  Mom ordered me mac and cheese – one of my all time favorites – and she shared her chopped steak with onions, mushroom and red wine sauce (it’s okay – the red wine sauce was cooked out).

 Mom said I did good because I was a member of the clean plate club and finished everything she gave me.  This little rock was ready to bust into a thousand pebbles I was so full.  BUT, never so full that I couldn’t have dessert. 🙂

Someone, namely mom cough cough, let it be known that I was celebrating my birthday.  I turned 6 months Saturday – that’s OLD in rock ages.  Mom got me ready on the left wrapping my napkin around me.

When my dessert came out, the only thing sweeter on the right was the

lovely Longhorn ladies who sung to me.  That was pure heaven!  Thanks ladies – I’m single – hubba hubba.

As you can see, I got a little messy with the dessert.  It was so good – I couldn’t help it.  I jumped in head first and got whip cream all over me!  The only thing that would have made this dessert better would be if the ice cream was Rocky Road ice cream.  That’s my favorite ice cream in the entire world! 

But it was good.  We all had spoons and dug in.  Mom had to clean me off afterwards.  I can’t help it.  If the food is good, I’m going to wear it.

With all of the fun we had, it wouldn’t have been perfect without the wonderful staff at Longhorns making my day.  They came back to the table afterwards to have their picture taken with me.  See, I told Bacon I was going to be famous one of these days. 

Ohh, and ladies – remember I’m single.  Would love a date night.  You can take me out anytime and take pictures to be posted.  hubba hubba – 🙂

Toodles – Bashful
