I hope all of my friends and blog visitors enjoyed a restful and satisfying Thanksgiving yesterday. It was a good day to not only enjoy lots of yummy foods shared with those we love, but to reflect upon everything we should be thankful for. My day started out like any other however the smells soon began wafting through the house! It didn't take long for that to get my attention. Although I'm not of the hunting dog group who are notoriously good at sniffing, I'm no slouch when it comes to FOOD! I followed my snooter and it became apparent Mom needed help.....she needed a Thanksgiving dinner inspector. Me being the helpful kind of guy that I am stepped right up to the challenge:
"Yep - it's coming along nicely Mom"I let Meeka help out when I needed a rest:
"Ummm...Mom - I'd say it's time to baste"
Once again we prove that the humans really can't function well without us. As the day wore on we anxiously awaited our Thanksgiving day feast. We knew what was coming.....our most favorite Merrick entree, Thanksgiving Day Dinner.
Oh boy! That sure is worth the wait!! We like to be sure we get every last morsel. Something this good requires a dish flip. Meeka set the stage and positioned his dish just right:
After inspecting the bottom for any residue from the stacked dish syndrome, we all move on to each other's dish just to double check nothing was overlooked:
"Nope - nothing here"
Sometimes a little digging doesn't hurt:
No dish was left unturned and we all settled in for a nice nap, waking up just in time for dessert - a nice little hunk of the turkey I inspected. What a great day! Now on to the next holiday. I seem to recall this one involves cookies....Woo!
