Travels in the South

Can you say buffet fun?  Mom/dad went out with some friends to a local hamburger joint called Krystal’s.  Look it up to see if you have one in the area.  Kind of like White Castle but better… we think.  A group of four went out to eat and got all of this food and four drinks for $15.00 – not bad huh?  We call that cheap eats here.  They have miniature square hamburgers that are awesome hot off of the grill.  Their chicken wings are also awesome – they have a little heat though and will give you a kick.  Have you tried any of these?

Travels in the South

What is this gooey yummy awesomeness you ask?  Can you guess?  Mom/dad found one of their favorites at a local restaurant they sometimes frequent.   I believe dad said the menu called them Mac and Cheese Bites. Dad was really digging them cause they were really cheesy – like him. Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter. I just had to go there. Mom said they were okay and that she liked her Mac and cheese the old fashioned way. Have you ever had a creation like this?

Travels in the South

What better way to celebrate the 4th of July then with Fireworks.  Add Oreos to the mix and you have the best of both situations.  Mom/dad found these limited edition Firework Oreo’s to celebrate the holiday.  And boy were the 1- fun and 2- delicious!  Yep, this little oinker got to try some.  Now I love Oreo’s and I should have been suspicious when dad offered me one.  But I wasn’t and I gobbled it down.  That’s when it happened.  The little ‘pop-pop-pop’ on my piggy tongue.

Do you remember pop rocks?  They have something similar to pop rocks on the white stuff of the Oreo.  When you eat the Oreo, you can feel the popping in your mouth.  It’s a blast of a great time.  We all had to share them here at the Hotel Thompson.

And do you want to hear what is funny?  Mom bought these and didn’t tell daddy what flavor they were. You have to check out their video. So funny!

If you see them in your grocery store, try a pack.  They are fun – fun – FUN!

It’s Time

It’s Time!  Well, it’s not the time but it’s getting closer.  You do know what I’m talking about my friends.  Fall or Autumn – whichever one you call it.  The one time of the year that my mom looks forward to.  You know, the beautiful colors, the pumpkins, the cooler weather, the changing of the leaves, the start of the holidays, the lighting of candles and fireplaces on a cool night, the snuggling during buggy rides on the farm.

STOP!  STOP!  STOP!  STOP!  STOP!

 Who am I trying to kid?  I’m sure Fall/Autumn means all of those things to some people.  But to mom, it means getting out the Ugg boots and trying Pumpkin everything.  You don’t believe me?  Look at the goodies she had this past weekend.  I’m sorry friends – it has started.  So if you see my mom wearing her Uggs with hands fully loaded of pumpkin stuff in the market, make sure you give her a hand okay.  Happy shopping!

Why I Gained Weight This Week

img_6322

Okay I’m a big girl – okay not “BIG” girl but big in the way of I can admit failure from last week and not losing weight.  You see there was the Red Velvet Oreo cookies that I found in the store.  Red Velvet not being one of my favorite flavors but the hub unit’s favorite.  Of course I bought him a bag – what kind of wife would I be not too, right?

So I call him and tell him that I have something special for him that night.  Of course he is a guy with a one track mind so I have to tell him no not that – ha!  But something he will love more – something that is his favorite.

So I hurriedly rush home to give him his bag of Oreo’s.

.

img_6323So to heck with dinner.  Let’s open these bad boys up and try them.  That’s when we saw that the cookie part was the Red Velvet and the white part of the Oreo was the cream cheese.  We both grab one cookie – you know to test for taste.

At the same time we bit into our cookies.  That’s when we heard the angels sing.  Oh my heavens – these things are fantastic.  Not overly sweet but you can taste the Red Velvet and the cream cheese.  Yes we were hooked and – lowers head – no we didn’t stop at just one.  You can tell by looking at the size of my butt.  It is now the size of Texas.

And shakes head.  I would like to say that the madness stopped there but I would be lying.

.img_6320

Oh no.  That’s when I brought out exhibit 2 from my purchases earlier this day.  Chili Nut M&M’s.  Father, I have sinned.

Let me tell you something my friends.  If you see this in the store, buy them.  They freeze well… I’ve heard.  They are just like regular peanut M&M’s.  They taste wonderful…however, when you swallow you find a little heat coming your way.  Not so much that you run for cover to drink a gallon of milk but enough to say “Hey, welcome to the party.”

So you see my friends, I know why I didn’t lose weight this past week.  Admittance is the first thing, right?  Here’s to a better week this week.

Grocery Shopping Scare

IMG_0725.JPG

Oh dear piggy heavens!  I heard mommy screaming all the way inside of the Hotel Thompson last night.  She stopped on the way home at our local market for some supplies.  She loaded the groceries up in the back of her Jeep like normal.  When she got home, she opened the trunk and look who was in the bag of groceries.  Mommy said she almost wizzed herself.  How did Don Juan get into that bag and during the day time?  Squeals and runs for cover.

I’m telling you these elves are evil.  They turn up everywhere all of the time on their own!  I’m getting kind of scared now with Don Juan.  What if he does something like this to me?!  You will hear me squealing all the way to Australia.  I’m just telling you – the little guy freaks me out – totally!

.

He just better be glad he didn’t get into mom’s secret stash of white fudge covered Oreo’s.  I attached pictures for you to drool look over.  Licks piggy lips.  And don’t fear – mommy is not eating the entire box at one sitting … although that would be heaven in a box – snorts.  She is giving herself one every couple of days.

Oh dear piggy heavens!  I heard mommy screaming all the way inside of the Hotel Thompson last night.  She stopped on the way home at our local market for some supplies.  She loaded the groceries up in the back of her Smart car Albert like normal.  When she got home, she opened the trunk area of Albert and look who was in the bag of groceries.  Mommy said she almost wizzed herself.  How did Don Juan get into that bag and during the day time?  Squeals and runs for cover.

Shopping Around the World

My friend Fozzie and I have scheduled a group posting today of Shopping Around the World.   We thought it would be interesting to see the differences between different countries all over.Here are our prices for the following from our area – Georgia USA:

.

  • Popcorn – We have a tendency to go old school here at the Hotel Thompson.  Mom buys the kernels in a bag to pop old fashion wise on the stove.  Trust me – it’s well worth the extra steps.  A 16 ounce bag of popcorn she can get on sale for $1.50 – it makes about 10-12 batches of corn for this oinker.  And trust me – I ❤ my popcorn.
  • Beer/Wine – Mommy is very picky on her wine.  She only buys Francis Ford Coppola wines.  Don’t ask me why cause I don’t know cause she won’t give me a taste of the grape – snorts.  Daddy says it costs about $20.00 or more for a bottle.  Thank goodness mommy doesn’t drink that much – I mean hey that cuts into my popcorn right?  PLOL
  • Chocolates – Mom’s favorite chocolates are Dove.  You know the ones that you unwrap and they have a secret little message on the wrapper.  She buys a 16 ounces bag usually for around $4.00.
  • Ice Cream –  Mom has been hooked on Breyers  Gelato these days.  Her favorite – Vanilla caramel.  Sometimes and not very often she can get a tub (28.5 ounces) for $4.00.  I have to admit mommy gave me a taste the last time she had some of this.  It was delicious.  I think I squealed it was so good!
  • Random Item of your choice – Something that comes out only during this time that my mommy absolutely loves is the white chocolate covered Oreo’s.  Delish… well so says mom and dad.  I have still yet to get one – hint hint mommy dearest.

If you have some items that you want to get on the list, email me my friends.

Hope you had fun!!

Shopping Around the World

My friend Fozzie and I have scheduled a group posting today of Shopping Around the World.   We thought it would be interesting to see the differences between different countries all over.Here are our prices for the following from our area – Georgia USA:

 

  • Price of cable services for one month – what do you get for that price?  Right now we pay right around $40.00 a month for cable services.  This includes channels such as local, SyFy, Food Network, multiple Cartoon channels – yay me! – Investigative Discovery, Encore movie channels.  In all, I think there is 250 channels.  And we have On Demand where we can go back and watch shows.  I ❤ this!  
  • A 12 ounce box (360 grams) of Cornflakes.  $3.29 – why are cereal prices so high? 
  • A 15 ounce package (432 grams) of Oreos or other cream filled cookies.  $3.99 but sometimes we can get them on sale for 2 packages for $5.00
  • A 7 ounce bag (225 grams) of Lay’s potato chips.  Lay’s are expensive 😦  And trust me, I do ❤ me some Lays. 7 ounce bags run around $2.00 or more a bag.  
  • 1 pound of real butter.  $4.00 :0  
  • A 6 ounce can of peanuts.  Mom buys the Kroger brand for $2.19 a can

Thanks so much to my friends Reilly and Denny for suggesting these items this month.
