Travels in the South

Anyone for some nachos?  Welcome my friends to another posting of Travels in the South.  Today we went a little Mexican.  Okay maybe I should say mom/dad went a BIG time Mexican.  They decided one night to go out and split some Fajita Nachos and maybe – and I stretch maybe – a Margarita might have been involved – snorts with piggy laughter.  And I say share because look at that plate!

It had peppers, onions, chicken, steak, shrimp and cheese slathered all over it.  It was messy and so delicious!  And hey splitting it between mom/dad meant half of the calories, right?  Don’t you love the way those two parents of mine have changed their way in thinking about food?  You don’t have to give up the things you love, just split them in half with someone else you love ❤

Travels in the South

Welcome friends to another Travels in the South.  This week mom/dad went seafood.  At our local Joe’s Crab Shack, they have an appetizer that mom/dad like to get and share.  Pair it with a salad and you can say perfect meal.  What is this appetizer?  Joe’s Crab Shack calls it Crab Nachos.  Mom/dad call it a little heaven.

It has almost everything in it – lots of delicious crab dip, pico de gallo, black beans, lettuce, corn, cheese and an awesome avocado lime dressing.  And there are plenty of nachos to scoop everything up with and enjoy.  And the bonus is that the nachos don’t get soggy.  You know how sometimes they get limp and wet with regular nacho toppings.

So the next time you are craving something seafood but with a curb of delight, check out your local Joe’s Crab Shack for this delicious appetizer… or make it a meal like my mom/dad do.

Strange Combinations

 Okay my friends.  Let’s discuss weird food combinations.  What foods do you mix together that *you* think is so good but somebody else would say eeeww nasty?

I’ll start – snorts with piggy laughter.  When mom/dad go to the movies, which is infrequent but does happen, mom has to have popcorn while dad is a huge nacho fan.  Dad will dip his nacho in his cheese and then put the cheesy nacho in mom’s popcorn to pick up some popcorn before eating it.  Can you see his nacho in mom’s popcorn.  Disgusting huh?  I haven’t seen such a disgrace since peanut butter bumped into chocolate.. oh wait a minute.  I do like that combination.

Then there’s mom who when she fixes tuna for sandwiches, cuts up green olives with the pimentos and throws it into the mix.

Another thing that mom does – when she fixes a peanut butter sandwich, she crumbles up plain potato chips and puts inside of the sandwich. Yep, inside of the sandwich.  Shakes piggy head.  Unbelievable huh?

So what do your humans fix that seems weird.  Please share.  My humans can’t be the only strange ones.

My Parents are Weird

  Bet you didn’t know that, huh?  Snorts – sure you did.  My humans were dropped on their heads too much as children.  In fact, I think they probably fell off the back of several pick up trucks while growing up.  This past weekend, they decided to go to the movies before having our “family meeting”.  What a joke that was but you know about that already and I’m sure you’ll be hearing more about that soon.  So all goes well.  Mom has been wanting to see the movie Jurassic World.  She loves all of those movies but she wanted to wait until the hoopla died down a bit so the theater wouldn’t be overly crowded.  Good plan huh?

So they went and mom gets her favorite treat – popcorn – while dad goes for his favorite – nachos and cheese.  Can these two agree on anything – snorts?  So there they were watching the gazillion previews and trailers for up and coming new movies.  Rolls piggy eyes.  Mom said by the time the previews got over, she turned to daddy and said, “What are we watching today?”  Isn’t that how it is though?  That’s why I insist on watching movies at home in my bedroom.  I can stop and pause for potty breaks and popcorn in the comfort of my toddler bed.  Snorts.

But there they were chowing down and waiting for the movie to start.  That’s when mom said it happened.  Mom said that one of dad’s nacho and cheese chips ‘jumped’ in the middle of her popcorn bag.  What?  How did that happen, right?  That’s when daddy said he ‘might have’ had some help with it.  Really daddy?  I’m shocked.

So he picked up some popcorn on his nacho and cheese and said it was delicious.  Mom tried one and said it was really good.  Thus that started the Nachos-cheese-popcorn party before the movie.  Rolls piggy eyes.  Those two are so easily amused.

The movie then started and for the next two hours they were quiet.  Mom said the movie was outstanding.  Dad said it was great.  There were ups and downs and you have to be kidding me situations.  But overall, they highly recommended it.  Afterwards they came home and that’s when it happened.  I think daddy brought someone home with him.  Of course mommy was like, “Can we keep him”.  All I gotta say is he’s not staying in my bedroom!
