Laissez les Bons Temps Roulez, pooches!!!
After more than a week of inactivity in our den we finally restarted our Mardi Gras celebration today. It was still quite cold outside, much too cold for an excursion, but my manservant suggested the perfect solution after he returned from picking up Starlight from her visit to her groomers for a new furdoo. We were game and hopped into the Hybridmobile and headed to the seafood market where we loaded up on crabs, shrimp, okra, crabmeat, and all of the other fixin’s for seafood gumbo! Woo hoo!!
Pooches, we spent quite the afternoon in the kitchen chopping and dicing and stirring and tasting the preparation for a HUGE bowl of seafood gumbo. Starlight was a bit skittish when the whole crabs were brought out. She looked at the large claws with a bit of reservation but they were soon taking a hot bath in the pot with all of the other ingredients.
After a few hours of preparation, the gumbo was left to simmer on the firebox while Starlight and I ventured outdoors for a bit of fresh air before our evening meal. Starlight was quite proud of her new furdoo so I made sure to “ooh” and “ah” at her before we headed indoors for the Mardi Gras feast!
Pooches, two weeks to go! Laissez les Bons Temps Rouler!!!
