Travels in the South

 Welcome back my friends to another edition of Travels in the South.   Last week, I gave you some appetizers from a restaurant that mom/dad visited a couple of towns over from us.  You can read about that here.  Today I wanted to share the main course with him.  Now after eating all of those wonderful appetizers, mom did the right thing.  She went for a salad.  Mom said their salads were awesome with all kinds of the goodies that she likes in them like cucumbers, tomatoes, onion, mixed greens and croutons.  Doesn’t it look fantastic?

But dad, dad went straight up southern on all of us.  He got what the restaurant has on their menu as Glynn Street Burger.  Why is it called that?  Well the restaurant is on Glynn Street of course – snorts with piggy laughter.  Makes sense huh?  But what is in a Glynn Street Burger is the question.  Let me introduce you.

The Glynn Street Burger is an 8 ounce hamburger patty topped with a fried green tomato, pimento cheese and -gulps- bacon.  If you need to click on the picture to make it bigger to get a better look at this magnificent burger, please do.  You will want to see all of this goodness.  Dad says it’s one of those burgers that is wet and delicious.  You will need plenty of napkins… or as mom says a hose to hose you down before you get back in the car.  This burger is messy but so worth the fight in getting it into your tummy.  If you never had a burger with pimento cheese and a fried green tomato – don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.  Dad went straight up southern with this meal.   But as in the famous words of our favorite television detective, “One more thing.”  See those tater tots in the plate.  They are sweet potato tater tots.  Mom doesn’t care that much for tater tots but on this date couldn’t stay out of dad’s plate.  They were that delicious!

 

But wait a minute, mom has one more picture to share with you.  These are the outside doors of the bathrooms – too cute huh??!!

The Day After –

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas yesterday.  It was joyful and wonderful here at the Hotel Thompson.  It was quiet – the purr things were loving and mom/dad were glowing with happiness.  Our tummies were full of delightful food – all kinds of goodies – sweets, breads, rib roast, sweet potato casserole (one of my favorites) – just to name a few.

We plan on camping out, putting our feet up and relaxing for a change.  Mommy is home from the worky place and has no plans of returning until some time next week.  I’m a happy oinker.  Life is good.

I thought I would take this chance to open up to all of my friends here in blogville.  Have you ever wondered what my life is like here at the Hotel Thompson?  My favorite movie?  Am I messy?  Am I a good pet?  My favorite food?  What I do during the day?  How I get along with the purr things and daddy?

Today is your day.  I’m an open book.  Go ahead.  Ask me anything.  I will tell you what you want to know.  Go ahead.  Don’t think your question is minor.  Ask away.  In between naps, I will answer them all.

Oh, and I know you’re probably wondering what I got in my “little” stocking – snorts.  Santa was super nice this year.  He filled it with egg plant, carrots, squash, watermelon, apples, celery, animal crackers and my favorites – Gold Fish!  mmm – I must have done something right this year! But one thing I didn’t get was Miss Piggy 😦 Perhaps one day. Until then, I can still dream!
