National Watermelon Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!

August 3rd is a grand and awesome day for that little pig called Bacon. It is National Watermelon Day. Heck yeah this big ole fruit deserves an entire day all to itself. Watermelon is 90% water but 100% goodness. Do you know that little oinker here loves his watermelon – rind, juice and ALL!  I’m attaching some pictures for your amusement of a watermelon bash he had not too long ago where watermelon went flying everywhere!  I think it took Bacon’s mom several hours to clean up the mess but she said it was well worth it to make some memories and have fun with the Bacon.  Way to go mom!

Go out today and enjoy you some watermelon!  Make some memories and have a blast.

Texts from Bacon

How do you make the day go by faster?  Of course by texting mommy at the worky place – snorts.  My texts are in blue and moms are in gray.  Hey what can I say?  There’s never a dull moment here at the Hotel Thompson.  Enjoy my friends!

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 🙂

Shopping Around the World

Welcome my friends to a new year of adventure and great food!

July we are highlighting great sandwiches of any kind.  In the summer months, it is way too hot to bake or cook on the oven.  For that reason, we are doing sandwiches that require little to no cooking.

For this month, I’m letting my mom take it away


What you will need:  Dinner rolls (we got the new Sara Lee Artesano which comes 12 rolls to the package for $3.69 – you will need six rolls); Ham of your choice (you could use any kind of deli meat – this is our favorite – don’t tell Bacon.  The package costs $4.07, you will need a third of it); and shredded cheese (a block of cheese cost us $1.99 – use whatever type.  We use medium cheddar and about a quarter of the block).  Total price $3.71

 

How to prepare:  Turn your over on just long enough to get a little hot.  Cut the tops off of he dinner rolls trying to keep them all together.  Put the shredded cheddar cheese on the bottom dinner rolls.  Then top with slices of ham and more shredded cheddar cheese.  Place the top back on the dinner rolls and put on a baking sheet.  Put in the oven just long enough to get the cheese to melt.  Take out and cut into little sliders for dinner.  Trust me, they go FAST!

International Day of Friendship

  Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here – Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!

Of all of the important holidays I can tell you about, today seems to be the most important in my book.  It is International Day of Friendship.  The world is filled with too much hate, too many wars, too much prejudice and way too many disagreements.  Today, we should put all of that aside and reach out to each other and say, “Hello friend happy friendship day!”

This is just not a backyard problem or a school playground problem.  This is a worldwide problem.  A problem that needs to come to an end.  Everyone has differences – we wouldn’t be individuals if we didn’t.  But when you look down to it, we all want to be happy and what better way than to get along.

Today let’s make friends with different people, different cultures and different countries.  Extend your hand – or an olive branch – and say hello friend.  Say hello to your neighbor, to the stranger at the market and say hello to a person that you see everyday but you don’t even know their name.  Today is the day to make a friend near and far.

To all of our friends, we at the Hotel Thompson would like to say thank you for being our friend – happy friendship day.  And to those that don’t know us yet, Happy Friendship Day.  May we get to know you better today and in the future!

 Who will YOU say hello friend to today?

Paw Time with Houdini

Mom really how could you?  Okay I get it.  You have a shoe fetish.  I used to have one too but you broke me of that.  I get that.  But you come home with these shoes.  Really?  They have D.O.G.S. on them.  And hey get this – they are not of me.  So how could you?  I feel betrayed.  I think this look tells you everything I’m feeling.  Now be a nice sport about it.  Take those shoes off so I can take care of them if you know what I mean. 🙂

P.S.  These are mom’s new shoes.  They are Skecher BOB’s and are awesome.  I know when she wears them, she is thinking of me.  And mom says they are the most comfortable pair of shoes she has ever had.  That’s gotta mean something, right?

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 ❤
