A Giant Win and a Yummy Dindin

Dad's NY Giants won in overtime yesterday and he was very happy! Mom loves to make longer cooking meals on football Sunday and yesterday's dindin was corned beef and cabbage!


Mitch and I helped mom as she added stuff to the pot! We both had to sample a carrot to make sure it was fresh and acceptable!




The cabbage was added next and we needed to make sure that the leaves were firm and crisp and not wilty!



Mom wouldn't share any raw potatoes with us but those went into the pot too along with the big hunk of corned beef, which was very good after it had boiled FOREVER!!!! The house smell soooooooooo good!

Guess what we had for dessert, which is a rare treat around here! APPLE CRUMB PIE!!!!!!!!!! OMG, it was so good and we each got a sampling of it!


We had a VERY good Sunday! How was yours?

So until next time....................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Woof Maggie and Mitch

Oh, that corned beef and cabbage sure looks yummy. Bet it was delicious. Our Mom was glad that the Giants won too. She really likes the Manning Brothers because Peyton went to the University of Tennessee and we are huge Volunteer fans(even though they are doing horribly this year). She likes Eli as well and was very happy when they beat the Patriots in the best Super Bowl ever(she hates the Patriots but don't tell Agatha and Archie).

Oh my, that looks so yummy! I'm going to have to motivate Mom to do some slow cooking now that fall is beginning. Your delish looking corned beef and cabbage has made me so hungry! I'm going to have to hunt down some extra kibble or something! Happy Monday!

Your pal,

APPLE CRUMB PIE?!?! That sounds delish! I've had a sweet tooth lately for some reason. Would your mom share her recipe?
Our mom loves slow cooking things, too. So do we - it makes the house smells incredible!

OMDOGNESS!!! We are drooling from here. Mommy didn't cook..... we had to suffer through with our dog food. We had new BABIES here and the Arizona Room aka Dog Room is in the "RE-MODELING" Zone right now.... a tad confusing around here. Maybe I'll slip out the front door as the construction workers come and go.... and come visit!!! Woohoo....

Toffee said...

OMD what a yummy meal you had! Mom was particularly interested in your dessert...we know what you mean about slow cooking meals on football sunday - mom made chili - we only got to lick the dinner bowls though.

congrats to your NY Football Giants...lets just say that our dad was less than thrilled with the Pats game ; )

We are feeling very MAD about the Bears this season! They need a better playbook. That is what Man-Dad says. Maybe they just need BOOKER to wear a BEARS collar. Hey, it worked for the CUBBIES!!!!!!

YUMMO!!! You've got a fantastic personal chef, and it's so good of you to provide sampling services!

Mango said...

Go easy on the cabbage. It causes gas leaks. The stew looks great, though. And apple crumb pie, too. Sounds like a good weekend.
