Shopping Around the World

Hello friends!!

For February’s Shopping Around the World, we want a drink and snack food that you love.  Recipes, pictures are awesome and prices to be posted on:


Doesn’t that picture look awesome just by itself?  Mom has tried to eat better at home.  Once she would have snacked on chips, pretzels or chocolate.  Not these days.  Don’t get me wrong though.  She still keeps a chocolate drawer in the refrigerator – sshh don’t tell anyone.  But these days, she tries to keep better snacks at and about.  Usually on the weekends, she puts together a snack tray that can be easily attainable at night for her and dad.  It includes wheat crackers, apple slices, cheeses of different kinds, sometimes she throws in green olives with pimentos and pickle spears.  That way when the munchie monster hits, she can grab things that might be a little bit better for her and dad then the so called ‘junk’ food of the past.  What does this cost?  Let’s break it down.

⋅ One box of Wheat Ritz crackers (on sale $2.50 for the box)

⋅ Three apples of any kind (on sale 3 for a $1.00)

⋅ Assortment of cheese cut however you want (Colby, Cheddar and Provolone packs at $1.99 each pack)

⋅ One jar of pickles ($2.49)

⋅ One jar of green olives ($3.49)

That totals $15.45 for all of these goodies; however, they last between 2-3 weeks for everything.  It depends on how much snacking you are doing – LOL.  Now mom will fix everything in a special container she has that has lots of individual holes that is perfect to put cut up apples, pickles, olives and your cheeses.  She keeps the crackers on the kitchen island to add to her snack whenever she needs it.  And mom says sometimes when the midnight munchie monster hits, its perfect to fix a cheese cracker and go back to bed.  Go figure huh?

But wait a minute.  This month is snack and drink month.  What does mom drink with her snack?  If it’s an after dinner/pre-bed snack, you may find mom eating a little variety platter with a glass of  Primo Amore Moscato.  Mom found this wine at our local Olive Garden and fell in love with it!  It has a little bit of bubbles in it with a sweet taste.  It goes great with her snack tray.  Mom found the she can buy this brand at our local market for around $16.00 a bottle.  Again, this bottle can last an entire week since she is the only that drinks alcohol here at the Hotel Thompson and she only has one glass at a time, when she has it.  Mom highly recommends this wine though so if you find it in your market, try it and tell us what you think.

Travels in the South

Surprise – surprise – surprise.  Just goes to show you that every once in a while mom listens to her body…. especially when it screams, “Eat a salad sometimes!” LOL

Last weekend, mom/dad went out for brunch.  We won’t discuss what daddy ate – probably another hamburger – snorts with piggy laughter.  But mom got a salad and I have to say it looked pretty darn good to me.  It had all of the regular stuff – croutons, red onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, shredded cheese with light Thousand Island dressing.

See mom can be good…. at times.

Dear Bacon

20130214-082544.jpg

Dear Bacon – Humans *think* they can get us.  I’ve got a few tricks up my fur.  I’ve created the Slam-o-helmet.  It protects my little noggin so I don’t get hurt.  Cause you know, I gotta have my cheese.  Clever, huh? Signed Smarty Mouse

Dear Smarty Mouse – That is very clever!  I am very proud of you little fellow.  Still, be careful because you know what happens with only ONE wrong move.  It could be a major ouchie!


20130214-082552.jpg

Dear Bacon – You’re not the only animal with his own room.  I have my own room too.  In fact, I have a big boy bed and not just some toddler bed.  What do you think?  Signed Billy The King of the Pillow

Dear Billy The King of the Pillow – I am impressed my goat friend.  Those colors are very becoming with the color of your fur.  See, we are totally blessed to have our own space inside of the house.  I’m not hatin – I think it’s fantastic my friend!


20130214-082611.jpg

Dear Bacon – We were walking down the street and we saw each other.  We were both like “BRO”.  You know we had to show a little man love.  What?  You never seen two crocs hugging?  It’s the happening thing right now.  Signed Dos Crocs

Dear Dos Crocs – I think it’s great.  I’ve seen women walking down the street clutching croc purses but never two crocs hugging.  I’m sure it freaked a few people out but hey maybe they just needed a hug or two as well.  Love the friendship!


20130214-082622.jpg

Dear Bacon – You know being a purr thing is hard.  We run around the house, we protect the humans from crawley things, we get into everything imaginable and look out the window all day.  It’s a hard life.  By the end of the day, there’s nothing much else to do but pass out on a comfortable spot.  But that’s okay, we trust our humans so we can stretch out without fear.  Signed – Sleeping Kitties

Dear Sleeping Kitties – I understand perfectly about taking care of your kingdom.  I do the same.  And I agree.  It’s hard work.  I also have a tendency to stretch and pass out on the couch with mom after a long strenuous day.  I trust her as well when I go belly up and snore.  You look really comfortable my friends.  Continue on!


20130214-082635.jpgDear Bacon – My name is Tiny and I’m in charge.  I have a partner in crime named Sasquatch.  Together, we can not lose.  We run around the neighborhood… okay Sasquatch runs and I ride.  We are invincible.  He is my friend and my protector.  We have a wonderful friendship.  Don’t you agree?  Signed Tiny and Sasquatch

Dear Tiny and Sasquatch – Hey, if it’s not broken, don’t fix it.  I think ya’ll look cute together.  Ride on and have fun!!  Life is too short.

Happy President’s Day

No offense my friends.  I couldn’t help not sharing this today – so appropriate and out of the mouth of innocent babes – snorts.

It’s NANA’s Birthday!!

 

Do a little dance – get down tonight.  Shake it to the left…. shake it to the right… shake it to the side that’s all the best!  Today is a most important day.  What is it you ask?

It’s Nana’s birthday!! ❤

This little piggy will be seeing her later in the day to give her plenty of hogs and snout kisses… and of course I’ll help her blow her candles out too.  So my friends – here’s wishing Nana the happiest birthday of them all!

Travels in the South

Hello dear friends.  Welcome to another week of Travels in the South.  This week, we are focusing on daddy and his hamburger passion.  He loves hamburgers.  I mean really LOVES.  Every time we go somewhere, he has to try their burgers out to see how they are on the taste scale.  This week is no different.

This hamburger was so big that the restaurant had to put a huge steak knife in it to hold it together in transit to the table.  It’s a one pound patty, cheese, and gulps – bacon, with pickles and a hard fried egg.  Talk about getting all of the your food groups into one plate.  And if you haven’t noticed in the past with dad’s burgers, he likes a little mayo on his burgers – no ketchup or mustard or tomato or lettuce.

What did dad think of this concoction?  He gave it two thumbs up and said he would order it again.  What do you like on your burgers?

Get a Different Name Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

“Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!”

February 13th is Get a Different Name Day – This day is created for those who are not fond of the name given to them at birth.  It wasn’t our choosing.  Rather, our parents bestowed it upon us.  If you like your given name, fabulous!  If NOT, then today is the day to take advantage of it and change your name for the day.

What will your new name be?  I was bestowed the name of Rockford Pygmy Sciuridae.  I know, it’s a mouthful.  That’s why I go by the name of Journalist Rocky the Squirrel.

Bacon’s full name is Bacon Porkchop Thompson.  I interviewed the little pig and asked him what he would change his name to for the day.  The little chap has a sense of humor.  He had a few and here are some of them:

  • Brad Bacon Pitt (He thinks he can get Miss Piggy with this name)
  • Bacon Bond 003 1/2   (The pig watches too much James Bond)
  • Kevin Bacon (Even I rolled my eyes on this one)
  • Hamm (He said he wanted to try another breakfast meat – that pig!)

What would your name be for today?  I would love to know.
