Friends – if you have hosted my sweet little innocent Bashful (I know – that’s definitely a stretch – snorts with piggy laughter), you know have a badge that you can proudly display on your blog. My brother Phenny across the pond had his dad make this awesome badge. Isn’t it great?! So please, proudly display this badge if you have hosted my little tyke ❤
Guess what friends? Bashful is off on another journey. We heard this weekend that he has arrived at his host family’s home.
Where could it be in the world? Who has him now? Stay tuned to find out more.
OMP (oh my pig!) Can you believe that it’s been FOUR years since Bashful came to live with me here at the Hotel Thompson? This is him all snuggled in transport the first time that I saw him – aaww. Wasn’t he all cute and innocent in his straw bed?
And to think of all of the places he has been in the world? He’s going to need extra pages in his passport book soon ❤
So, today, let’s all wish our little international rolling stone a huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
The other night, mom/dad took Bashful out for some Mexican food. They like to call that his “Going Away” Party. He gobbled down his two hard shelled beef taco’s and then flirted with all of the staff talking about his adventures. The places my rock has been! The restaurant even told hi Bon Voyage to his next trip. Heck, I wished we had signed Bashful up for Skymiles. Just think of the miles we could have accumulated over the years.
But at last, mom took him to the ‘airport’ this morning and sent him off on his next adventure. Where will he land? What will he do? What will he eat? Where will he roll? And the most important question – Who will he be visiting?
When my pet rock was visiting Miss Harper Lee and Tallulah Bee in New Orleans, Louisiana, Bashful got hooked on a specialty there named Red Beans and Rice. If you look here, you will find the recipe and pictures from that trip.
Well when Bashful came home, there were some of those amazing Camellia beans in his package. So you know mom had to try them. So this past Monday, mom put on a huge pot just like Miss Harper Lee’s mom does on Mondays.
When it was ready to serve, mom whipped up some rice and of course her homemade cornbread to go with dinner. And let me tell you, it is an awesome recipe. Dad had two bowls! Does that tell you anything?
So friends – there you go. A dish from mom’s kitchen! Thanks Miss Harper for the recipe and wonderful beans. This just might be our weekly dinner on Monday’s now. ❤
Oh friends – have you been wondering what my little Bashful has been doing in New Orleans? Well you gotta check it out – he’s been rolling around having a blast! XOXO – Bacon
It’s been a while since I’ve given you an update on Bashful’s New Orleans adventures. Every time I turn around, that little fella is hopping into my human mommy’s purse and they’re headed out the door. I finally got those two to sit down long enough to tell me where they’ve been and to share a few photos. Wow. They’ve been busy. A couple of weekends ago, Bashful joined both of my humans at Armstrong Park for the Treme Creole Gumbo Festival–New Orleans’ Premier Brass Band Showcase, which is presented by the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation. In New Orleans, we love a festival. There’s at least one every month–sometimes one each weekend of the month–and they usually revolve around tasty food and great music.
This festival features gumbo of every sort you can imagine: creole gumbo, seafood gumbo, chicken and sausage gumbo, even vegan gumbo and…
