Yesterday started out with a large breakfast for the bipeds. Eggs, sausage, and hashbrowns. Later in the day Mom made a double-layer chocolate cake for her Dad's birthday. There was no dinner cooked at home yesterday because they ate with Nana and Pap. But today, Mom more than made up for not having cooked dinner last night.
This morning at about 7:30, the little biped came into Mom and Dad's bedroom (ours too) and announced: "It's time to get up... it sure is." Lately, sayings like "it sure is," "I sure did," and "you sure can" have been some of her favorites. So Mom and Dad got up to start the day.
Next, Mom made some scrambled eggs, then they ate and got ready to head out for the grocery store. Normally on a Sunday, it would be a trip to church, but Mom and Dad chose not to go today and to get some other things done instead. A couple hours later they returned with more groceries than they've bought in one trip for a long time. Of course there was no dog food in all of this. They haven't bought dog food for us at the grocery store since the pet food recalls; now we get gourmet dog foods like Canidae(or if you are Khyra, Khanidae) and Eagle Pack Holistic.
Before they went to the grocery store, a female duck jumped out of the bushes in front of the house and flew away. We saw it all from the window. How excited were we?!?!? Sky especially likes duck because that's what is in his Eagle Pack. We tried to get Dad to go out and shoot it so that Mom could put it in the freezer until July when the raspberries are ready. Roasted duck breast with raspberry sauce sounds so goooood! Unfortunately, despite several trips out with the camera, Dad couldn't shoot even a picture of her. Good thing since it turns out she's nesting right in front of our window.
This is what she looked like!
When they arrived home, Mom immediately began cooking. Stromboli with mushrooms, chicken cacciatore with peppers and onions, and turkey meatloaf. The plan was to prepare a few large meals at once and freeze them into several portions each. This way there would be more time during the week for family time and dog walking. While she was doing this, Dad cooked lunch for him and the little biped. He decided to get some scrapple at the grocery store. I've included a link to tell you what this is if you're not from Pennsylvania. He didn't know if the little biped would like it, but it turned out that she loved it. Dad serves it on toast with maple syrup. Finally, Mom made some blueberry bread today.Well, time to go... Dama and Paw-paw are here for dinner. Oh, I'm sure you could tell....we didn't have a doggy transport this weekend.
Woo woo, Kelsey Ann
