Sunday Brunch

20120827-100212.jpg

Daddy is the best.  Yesterday morning, he was craving what he kept referring to as pancakes.  Mom ventured into the kitchen to make magic.  You know I followed.  Mom was humming and beating things together in a pan.  I’m not sure if the humming was on the recipe but it amused me.  Once she got together what she called ‘batter’, she started putting it in a pan.  Oh thud – the smell that was in the kitchen was out of this world.  I kept bugging her for some to taste.  I would go up behind her and nudge the bottom of her foot with my snout.  She kept laughing and said I had to wait.  Wait?  You’re telling a pig to wait?  That’s like telling Mother Nature not to change the seasons – it’s going to happen. 

I saw dad’s plate that she was fixing.  Oh my – there was these clouds of wonder stacking to the sky.  I kept sniffing the air.  I wanted some so bad.  Mom fixed her plate and then she fixed mine.  See how creative she got with a little smiley face for me on my Sesame Street plate.  I thought I was going to explode if she didn’t give it to me soon!

She finally put it on my feed blanket.  Stars almighty!  I went for the so called ‘pancake’ first.  It was fluffy.  It was buttery.  It was light.  And, it was delicious!  I managed to get a couple of more from mom and dad before they started eating.  Dad called mom a Domestic Kitchen Goddess…. I already knew she was.  He suggested that we have pancakes for Sunday brunch every week.  I seconded that idea!

Travels in Chicago

Mom/Dad left us again a couple of weeks ago.  They went back to see my Aunt Tina in Schaumburg, Illinois.  Of course you know this means more food porn from them, right?  And of course that means us anipals didn’t get any doggy bags per say.  But then again, we were at Nana’s and well I can’t tell you what happened there… cause you know what happens at Nana’s stays at Nana’s.  So with that, I will let mom explain this awesome picture to you.  Take it away mom –

A restaurant that we found the last time we visited my sister was called Richard Walker’s Pancake House.  Now the hub unit has talked about this place every since the first time we ate there.  And I’ll tell you truthfully – the hub unit even dreamt about this place.  Yep, he liked it that much.

So of course it was on the ‘must go’ places on our list.  But this time, I fell in love with something on the menu.  Let me introduce you to my new love – bacon pancakes.

I’m sorry my sweet Bacon.  These pancakes are the bomb!  I think we ate them like three times while we were in Illinois a couple of weeks ago.  I couldn’t help it!  They kept calling my name.  The bacon was crispy – not mushy – and they were in the pancakes.  Of course I used sugar free syrup – LOL.  Don’t they look gorgeous?!

Now I want some more – ❤

Pig in a Blanket Day

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

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.

National Pancake Day

Today, March 4, is a most wonderful and tantalizing day.  Today is National Pancake Day.  Do I hear you cheering on that holiday?  I know Bacon’s daddy can’t wait to hit the nearest IHOP Restaurant today for some FREE pancakes.  Did I mention FREE?  Yep, you can enjoy a FREE short stack of buttermilk pancakes today on National Pancake Day in exchange for a donation to the Children’s Miracle Network.  That sounds like an awesome deal.  FREE pancakes and you are helping out a wonderful cause.

Do you know who else likes pancakes?  Yep, you guessed it.  That little oinker I refer to as my buddy, Bacon.  In fact, Bacon’s mom has a little skillet made just for that spoiled little pig.  When you pop out his pancakes, they look like a little pigs face.  When the Hotel Thompson has pancake weekend, you can always find Bacon dining on one as well.

Let’s also think about my friend Lilly here in this picture.  She’s not much for eating pancakes but she loves to wear them as hats.  I guess that’s why her parents sometimes call her Lillycake – chitter chatter.

However you like your pancakes – be sure to enjoy some today on this National Pancake Day holiday!

Travels in the South

We all know by now that dad has no limits when it comes to eating.  He doesn’t get these things every day or sometimes not even every week.  But this is another one of his favorites – blackberry pancakes with whip cream.  Of course there is thousands of worth of calories in this dish – that dad gets either for breakfast or dinner.  And no he never finishes it all but enjoys every bite he can get down.  And we won’t talk about how he flies like a kite the rest of the day if he eats it for breakfast.  Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter.

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.
