Have a wonderful Wheelie Wednesday

Mitch and Sarah are leaving today. We hate to see them go, but know they must go back to California to jobs and to our nephew dog, Odie.

When Mitch was little, he and our sister, Kat and Mom and Dad lived in the Philippines. Our Dad was a Marine and he felt very fortunate to take his family to live there. While they were there, Mitch developed a love for Filipino food and our huMom had their housegirl teach her how to make some of his favorite dishes.

Yesterday we got to help Mom make Filipino food. We chopped, we diced, we fried, we stir fried, we steamed, but best of all we tasted!! But we were so busy doing all of that we didn't take any pictures. We helped Mom make Siu Bao - little meat filled dough purses that she steamed, lumpia - it's like an egg roll, but no sprouts - just a meat/veggie filling. We also made Pancit Canton - a noodle, vegetable and meat dish and fried rice with vegetables. Mom also made her special garlic sauce to dip the lumpia. We got to taste the carrots, the Siu Bao filling and some of the lumpia wrappers. Our peeps really know how to drag in the good food!!

Today Mom and Dad are taking Mitch and Sarah back to the airport - the one with the "No Scottie" sign out front. Before they go, they are going by Grannys to have chicken and dumplings. Guess what we get to do - stay home!

Have a Happy Wheelie Wendesday,
XOXO

The Phillipino food sounds yummy but the Chicken N Dumplins sounds out of this world! Thanks for stopping by to see us. WE live in Augusta Co. (very broad I know...) close to the border of Highland Co. I've only lived in VA. for 3 yrs so I'm not sure where your Co. is? Give those crazy Scots a hug for me and the pack!

Yummmmm. You are making us drool, and we've already eaten breakfast. We're sure it wasn't as good as the food you had over the past few days. (Tell Mitch and Sarah to come back soon!)

Still hungry, now that our appetites have been whetted,
Jake and Fergi :))

That sign is profiling and you should dress up as another breed and demand to be let in. =)
