Travels in the South

They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I agree.  Mom has fixed me omelettes for breakfast and dinner.  However, I’ve never had an omelette like this one before.  It seems mom likes something called a Colorado Omelette.  It has all kinds of wonderful yummy stuff in it – some things I can’t mention because well I’m an oinker and it wouldn’t be good for me so I’m letting mom take it from here.

For obvious reasons – this omelette is loaded.  Loaded with goodness that is.  It has bacon, sausage, shredded beef, ham, onions, green peppers, mushrooms and cheddar cheese.  And let’s not forget to top off that deliciously wonderful omelette with salsa.  Yum.  Have you ever had an omelette topped with salsa?  It just brings so much more to the table.

Pig in a Blanket Day

April 24th  is Pig in a Blanket Day.  Okay – so maybe it’s not exactly the Pig in a Blanket Day you were thinking .  I can’t report about sausage wrapped in a pancake.  I mean, that would be weird and everything being on Bacon’s blog, right? – wink – So just have pancakes today to celebrate – chitter chatter

But, I can report to you the original Pig in a Blanket for this great holiday.  That’s right – the original.  As in Bacon wrapped up in a blanket – ha!   That seems to be the oinker’s favorite position – pig wrapped up in a blanket.

So on this day, think of the little booger and enjoy.  And yes, on top of that pig in a blanket is Sir Hemi passed out sleeping too.  See, proof is in the picture that they all get along at the Hotel Thompson.

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!

Food Porn – A Southern Breakfast

  The other morning after Christmas, mom/dad went out for a true Southern breakfast.  Mom/dad said they had to get this out of their system to start the year off right.  Shaking piggy head – I don’t get it.  Mom/dad wouldn’t tell me where some of this food came from… they said it was best that I didn’t know.  Snorts – we *all* know what that means huh?  So, let me give you a breakdown of a southern breakfast:

Of course, buttered biscuits, eggs (scrambled and over easy), sausage, streak o’ lean (a southern delicacy – look it up – gulps), pancake, southern gravy and real grits with shredded cheese.  Now tell me my friends – which item do you want to try first?

Breakfast of Champions

Oh friends – I hope that you have had a fantastic week.  I know we have since mom has been home from the worky place this past week.  We have all snuggled and slept and cuddled and slept some more.  I think mom is getting a lot of rest this week which is awesome to all of us anipals.

 I do have to share something that mom/dad found this week.  They went out yesterday morning for a little bit of this thing called Black Friday.  No way I was getting up out of my nice comfortable bed at the time they left the Hotel Thompson.  But somewhere along the way, dad ordered some reindeer pancakes.  They looked just like this picture.  Can you imagine eating Rudolph?  No way!  Not even this piggy has the nerve to eat Santa’s head reindeer.  That has to put dad on Santa’s naughty list – I’m just saying.

And don’t worry – I am especially glad this time that dad didn’t bring me home a piggy bag – snorts.  But on the other hoof, mom did.  And let me tell you – it was fantastic.

.

What did mom bring me?  Pancake puppies.  Enough said?  I think not – squeals.  These look like hush puppies but they are not – they are made with pancake batter and called puppies.  They are served with syrup which mom/dad went with sugar free syrup.  I on the other hoof prefer them plain and simple – straight up if you will.  And I will tell you something – they are fantastic!

So did you eat anything exciting over the holiday?  Anything that makes you go hhmm I would like to have some more of that?  Do share my friends – do share!  And have a fantastic day!

What’s it Like to Have a Pig

Last week, I did a blog posting on Facts about Moi. If you missed it, please go and take a look.  These were some of the things that people have asked mom/dad over the years.  Today, I wanted mom to write a blog posting about some facts about me.  I hope you find it interesting – take it away mom.

Thanks Bacon my cute little oinker 🙂

Having a pig is awesome.  But there are some cons and pros about having any kind of animal under your care.  We like to say that Bacon owns us and not we own a pig.  Trust me, that’s how it works here at the Hotel Thompson and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Pros: Pigs have a great sense of time.  In all the years Bacon has lived here, I do not need to set my alarm clock.  Bacon knows exactly what time to get me up in the mornings for breakfast.  His timing is so good, that he even lets us sleep in a little on the weekend.  He is the best sous chef I have ever had.  When I cook dinner at night, he often comes into the kitchen and sits on the floor waiting to help.  Help with what you ask?  Well, peeling potatoes for one.  He absolutely LOVES to eat the part I peel. Salad making is another one – the boy loves his lettuce, cucumbers and tomatoes.  And cabbage – oh my!  Every since I was kid, I love to chew on the core of the cabbage.  Now Bacon loves it too.  Bacon gives so much love – he’s warm – he’s sweet and we both love to snuggle on the sofa together at the end of a very hard day and watch some television.  That’s another thing – he loves his shows on television.  He knows key words like sit, bedtime, snuggle, kitchen, dinner, breakfast, go to your room.  He’s very smart and it shows.  AND he is very protective of me.  If he doesn’t know you, he will get in between you and me and stand guard.  If you get closer to me, he will even snort at you.  I call him my protect pig.

Cons: He is pig-headed.  Now you know where that phrase comes from.  When he wants something, he wants it yesterday.  He can put those breaks on and he will not move.  If he wants something, he will put his head down and torpedo his way to what he wants.  He is very strong and has knocked me down a couple of times.  Of course, he tries to make up for afterwards.  He *hates* to be ignored.  That is the worse thing that you can do to my sweet guy.  You can not board a pig here in our area.  So you have to arrange for a sitter in advance.  And then you worry are they taking care of him like I would.  He loves his schedule too and we feed him three times a day.  My husband tells me that I cook for him more than him – LOL.  He eats piggy chow but he also eats plenty of salads, omelets and from time to time piggy pancakes.
