Good Eats....

Woo Woo every pup and Girl Girl....

Yesterday totally rocked. In honor of Zim's Zim-aversary, mom grilled PORK TENDERLOIN! Oh my dogness, it smelled so good and that was before she put it on the grill.

So, once mom got it on the grill, she came back inside to where I was laying and put something in my lap. Here I am checking it out. Can you guess what it is?

Oh Dave... I am sure the words running through your head are "WATERMELON???" Oh sweet freckled nose, unfortunately it is not. But, I give you points for thinking that it may be. Oh, if you guessed Zucchini, then you would be correct!!! Humm, I have never seen one of these before. See, a police friend of mom and dad's grows these in his backyard! Wow. So, I diligently watched mom as she sliced it into these circle pieces. She made this butter, olive oil, and orange zest mixture to put on them once she placed them on the grill. Oh, friends, the smells that was floating through the air from the grill was amazing. So, once everything was done, the yumminess was brought back inside. Here I am sampling the first bite of Zucchini....

Humm.. YUMMY! I have never had this before, but I like it. Oh, now, Tia can have a taste....

Oh yes, she enjoyed it too. After some tastes of pork, Tia settled in for a nice after dinner nap.

And I? Well, I found a most unconventional place to nap. I have never napped here before. I really tried to get the humans to go to bed around 7:30 last night because I heard thunder. I sat on the stairs and hung my head through the banister for almost 30 minutes. Since they never came to escort me to the bedroom, I decided to lay in the foyer area by the stairs.

Oh, there was talk last night of painting the foyer area that I am laying in. Mom wants to paint the area below the chair railing. I am super excited because: Paint + Siberian = FUN & MESSY!!! Could you imagine if she let me put my paws in it and we use my prints to decorate the walls? I think that is an EXCELLENT idea, don't you. Now, how do I convince mom to do that??? Anyone have any brilliant ideas on how to execute that plan?

Toodles and Hugs! Also, thanks for heading over to wish the most handsome Zim a great day. He had a hard life in the beginning, and now he has the BEST family ever!

Melissa said...

Ooooooo ooo you could also dip your nose in it and put painted snart on the wall too! That would go perfect with the paw prints!

Mmmm, that dinner sounds great. Here in the Uk we call that veg courgette and I like them a lot.

To decorate my hallway I just shake after coming in from swimming in the muddy river, very modern art!

Woo, Sitka! I DID think it was a watermelon at first! Guess what's in our magic cold box? Zukes and YELLOW SQUASH! I hope we get to taste them! Can Mom have the recipe for how your mom grilled the zuke? that sauce sounds really yummy!
Make sure you stop by our blog today!
PS: Zimmie says thank roo for all the Zimaversary wishes; he had a GREAT day!

Suki said...

I think your paw prints all over the place would be BOOTIFUL! You should definitely do it, although I don't have any ideas on how to convince your hoomans to let you.

Tia liked zuchini? Wow, my cats are super picky. They don't even eat their own canned food, but they like mine for some reason!

That sounds like a good supper! If your mom lets you help pick out paint colors, you'll have to make sure they are coordinating colors for the paw prints that you'll leave on the floor!!

That zucchini recipe made mom drool!
We think Dave should come over to be the color consultant and then you & Tia should be the designers and painters. You moms can just sit back and relax. Misty can join you and clean up the messes.

Does that zucchini sound good. Mom better add those things to the grocery list for tomorrow. Even Tia ate some. She's something else.
I like your painting idea. Paw Prints are a must and the husky fur adds texture. You have to let us know the colors.

Turbo the Sibe said...

I've always wanted to help paint!

That sounded so delicious !!

Girl Girl Hamster said...

The Daily Echo said...

Oh Sitka you must find a way to convince your Mom that you're a good painter! Remind her that you ARE a working dog after all. I don't know why they just don't let us do all the home destruction stuff.

MaPaw said...

That is one crazy zucchini! I find it best to surprise Mama and Papa with my decorating ideas. Even the best decription does not have the same effect as seeing the final product.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Sitka.
Pork and zucchini! Sounds delicious! There is a receipe here in Mexico that includes both ingredients and its really yummy!
Let us know if you convince your mom with your idea of painting!
Have a good night

Luckie Girl said...

Hey Sitka,
You must have had a long day to want to sleep at 7.30. Seriously, I sleep around midnight and wake up like 6am when my Mom comes into the kitchen. Am I getting not enuff rest or sumthing?

Bogart said...

Mmmmm... gotta get the humans to make some of that for me, sounds yummy!!!


Marvin The Dog said...

well, I don't like courgettes (sorry that is what z.....chini is over here) in fact I do not like any veg at all, but it all looked grand.

I am a meat and gravy man!

love and droooooling licks, Marv xxxx
