Travels in the South

Last November, mom/dad traveled to Chicago, Illinois.  Or should I say, mom planned a trip and told dad absolutely nothing about it until the car came and picked them up at the Hotel Thompson the morning of departure.  Mom had already packed everything for their adventure.  Why Chicago?  Well first up, my Aunt Tina lives there with my cousin Sherlock Bones.  Second up, daddy has *always* wanted to go to Ditka’s Chicago.  Are you asking yourself what is that?  Well Mike Ditka is a former football player, was an awesome coach and a television commentator.  He coached the Chicago Bears back in the day which was one of dad’s favorite teams.

In the next couple of weeks, we will be highlighting some of the food that everyone enjoyed during their trip to Ditka’s Chicago.


Have you enjoyed these past couple of weeks my friends sharing in mom/dad’s adventure at Ditka’s Chicago?

Today we leave with the best picture of them all – dessert.

On the dessert menu, it was so hard to decide on something to share.

And we had to share – we had so much food!  We settled on peanut butter pie – licks lips.  It had whipped cream, peanut butter mousse, chocolate and caramel sauces.

By splitting this wonderful masterpiece, mom/dad said they all had split the calories too.  And they said it was wonderfully sinful!

And trust me, everyone had so much food!  Look at all of the leftover boxes that they went home with to eat later ❤

Peanut Butter Lovers’ Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

Today is a sticky day – it’s National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day. It salutes America’s favorite sandwich spread. Who didn’t have peanut butter and jelly sandwiches while growing up? Heck, Bacon’s dad still has one for lunch every day now!

Smooth peanut butter is by far the most popular followed by crunchy. These days, they even have extra crunch…which is what Bacon’s dad eats and loves!

You can put peanut butter on sandwiches, crackers or celery – mostly anything that can ‘hold’ the wonderful substance. Bacon has been known to get some on celery – lucky little piggy.

Celebrate this day with a little – or a lot – of peanut butter. Heck, maybe top it off with a nice tall glass of cold milk. Sounds like a fabulous day to me!

And the question of the day – what is your favorite brand? Smooth or crunchy?

Travels in the South

The question is why is mom/dad posting this delectable picture of goodness at the beginning of the new year?  Why mom/dad?  Please explain.  Well, they said they had this dessert last year.  Okay, sure mom/dad.   Sure.  It does look yummy though, right?

Mom/dad found it at a restaurant that they don’t frequent very often – but they might now because of this dessert.  This delicious dessert is called a Goo Goo Cluster.  It has creamy layers of chocolate fudge, peanut butter mousse and nougat cream topped with caramel, chocolate sauce, fresh whipped cream and Nashville’s original candy ~ chopped Goo Goo Cluster ®.  (That’s what it says on the restaurants website).

Nods head.  Mom/dad says it tastes as good as it sounds… not that she will be tasting it anytime soon this year – snorts with piggy laughter.

National Sandwich Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here – 

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!

.

Friends – this is an awesome day – National Sandwich Day!  Sandwiches are so varied in how you can make them – what bread, what meats, hot or cold, grilled, pressed, open or closed, condiments, toppings – sigh – let me slow down.  The options are out there my friends.  Do you know how the day got started?

English history says that John Montagu was the 4th Earl of Sandwich.  He was a heavy gambler and would spend hours at the tables in London’s gambling halls.  In 1762, he created the sandwich by putting meat between two pieces of bread.  This allowed him to stay at the tables longer to gamble.  Thus, the sandwich was made.

And do you know what Elvis Presley liked on his sandwiches?  Peanut butter, banana and bacon (sorry Bacon) and then it was grilled.  It does sound interesting in a round about way.

And do you have a Subway restaurant in your area?  Today if you buy a sub and a 30 ounce drink, you get a free sub to share.  Now that sounds like an awesome way to spend today.

Travels in the South

Welcome my friends to another week of Travels in the South.  This week, we are talking about my dad again.  He gives me so much material – snorts and rolls with piggy laughter.  Dad loves finger foods and peanut butter and food and pretzels and food.  Well you get the ideal – daddy loves food.  And who could blame him, right?  I myself LOVE food of any kind in any way.

Well mom went shopping the other day and found these awesome treats for him – an entire container of peanut buttered pretzels for $1.00 – what a bargain!  Now you would think with the price low they might be stale or icky.  They were not.  Daddy ate them grinning the entire time making weird noises.  I think he liked them.

Travels in the South

Friends, this is a great one today.  I know – I know.  I say that every week on my Travels in the South.  But listen – every week I think there is absolutely no way that mom/dad can top the week’s prior Travels in the South.  And every week, this little oinker is wrong.  Right after mom’s accident (4 weeks ago today), she was feeling really icky and low.  So dad treated her to this masterpiece.  What is it you ask?

Daddy was speaking with the owner of a local restaurant that we go to a lot and was telling him that mom needed something to pick her up.  The manager sent over this creation on the house.  This is called Goo Goo Crunch pie.  It has layers of chocolate fudge, peanut butter mousse and a nougat cream topped with caramel, chocolate sauce, fresh whipped cream and oh yeah – chopped up Goo Goo Clusters.  Can you say insanely wicked good?! Daddy said that he could tell it was good.  Not by the smile on mom’s face.  Nope.  Daddy said he could tell by the groans coming from mom.  Oh my piggy heavens.  Watch out Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan.  Daddy said mom had you beat on this day – snorts with piggy laughter!

Travels in the South

Welcome friends to another week of Travels in the South.  This week it’s not a highlight of a restaurant.  Oh no.  It’s a highlight of a product that mom found in the store that me and dad can’t get enough of – can you say yummy!?

Mom has seen commercials on the television for this item – Skippy P.B. Bites – don’t they look awesome?  And you know that me and dad are *huge* peanut butter fans.  Neither one of us can get enough of the creamy or crunchy stuff.  We love both.  Mom had a coupon for a bucket of these bites.  With the coupon and them being on sale, mom paid right around $1.50.  It is a small container but there are lots of creamy balls in it – licks piggy lips.  I know that so didn’t sound right.  But take my word for it, these are delicious!

AND they come in two different flavors that mom saw at the market.  These which are double peanut butter and then they have pretzel peanut butter.  Right now, mom has learned something really important about the double peanut butter.  Me and dad can be bought with these balls of wonder and bribed to do anything in the Hotel Thompson.  Just give us peanut butter!

So the next time you are at the market, look these bad boys up on the peanut butter aisle.  Let me know what you think ❤
