The Annual Pig Roast

Tomorrow is Marlowe's annual pig roast that mom and dad attend and we both got to help mom prepare a salad that she will take with her tomorrow! No, we don't get to go! Bummer!


Mom had to run to the bank this morning and she took us for a ride!

The cashier sent cookies out the drive-in window that looked like Fig Newtons! She assured us that they were dog cookies and boy were they ever yummy! She even sent out a napkin so mom could wipe our faces! The heck with wiping our faces! I love to eat napkins - but this didn't happen! Rats!

Back at home mom got started on the salad. It's called Ramen Noodle Cole Slaw Salad. She diced the cabbage and chopped the walnuts!


She added the slivered almonds and the chives right out of our garden. Next were the broken Ramen noodles - not the beef packets yet - just the noodles today!

She stirred it all around and voila!

It sits overnight in the frig and tomorrow we mix the oil and the vinegar and the beef packets together and pour it over the cabbage and toss it! Pretty simple! We can't wait to taste it!

We sure wish we could go to this pig roast too! We hear the whole pawty is all about eating and socializing and listening to live music! We can do that!

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

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Oh my GOSH! My Nana makes that same salad and it is YUMMMY!

Oh, we add sesame seeds.

And napkins are tasty, and kleenex and papertowels, and...okay I will stop there.

You know, if you can't go to the pig roast, you'll just have to host your own. I'll ask Mommy to make a dessert and I'll bring that.

Gus said...

Oh my, that looks like a yummy salad....could you put the measurements up? Or send to muzzer. I might get a bite of that cabbage.

That salad looks deelish! Your mom has got the coolest recipes!

PS: Thank you for saying my head shape is lucious!

Fenway said...

oooweeee...my mama has a friend that makes the Ramen salad and Ms. Alpha is NUTS over it. Yum

And we have SO much in common. The drive thru bank teller gives me biscuits, too. That's the only time I'm ever allowed to eat store bought snacks. Mom calls 'em doggie junk food....but let's be honest. Sometimes junk food hits the spot!

Let's pray our respective banks stay in business so that we keep gettin' fed!

mmm.... Salad.
Aren't drive-thru's the best? the bank, and the pharmacy, and the coffee place to give me doughnuts, the parking attendants, everyone knows to have dog cookies.

Petra said...

This salad is one of Motch's favorites, and it must taste extra good with the chives from your garden.

That Fig Newton treat looked heavenly. Just heavenly!

Enjoy your weekend!

ooohh-PIG. We love those ears-but a whole pig! wow. maybe they will bring you some!!!
Mom has a stoopid question. I, Sunny am sure I know the answer. She says, do you cook the noodles first? (I say yes) But she is not much of a cook. Specially now. She says cooking for one is a pain. (Uh, Mom we would eat it too-duh)

We dun have drive in banks here and our cashiers surely dun pass out cookies. You guys are so lucky!

Why do the pig roast even not allow dogs? I am sure the hooman needed someone to share all the food and calories.

Sunny,Scooter,Jamie said...

pee ess I read the recipie again. I have changed my mind. Since it sits overnight in the vinegar, you do NOT cook the noodles do you.

Hi Maggie and Mitch
Yeah, the salmon treats make my breath smell glorious....mum said she is getting me mint flavored bones now....Now I get more snackies.
I am sorry you cannot go and listen to music and eat that wonderful salad...Do you think they will share or bring you home a doggie bag. Isn't the bank great!
They give mums money and us treats

You two would be the life of the party. I can't imagine why you have to be left home. What is a pig roast without M+M's. That salad looks yummy.

Saint Lover said...

I sure wish you guys could go too. I would love to hear about how good that pig smells cooking. Hope your mommy and daddy have fun.

The Army of Four said...

Our mom makes a similar salad, too! We should all post our mom's cabbage salad recipes - wouldn't that be fun? The best part about ours is that she toasts the ramen and always ends up dropping some of it on the floor. And THEN it's fair game!
Play bows,

Lady Kaos said...

Wow, that sounds like the bestest party ever!!!!!! I hope since you can't go, they'll bring you home some of that wonderful food.
Your bank is PAWESOME!!

What a shame you don't get to go to the party! Maybe they will bring you home a doggy bag though?
That salad looks delicious, but being british we are not sure what Ramen Noodles are or if we even have them here?? Mum will have to research that!

Have a great weekend,

love, licks and tailwags

Maggie and Mitch,

I think that it is cruelty to animals that you are not allowed at the pig roast party. But maybe an entire roasted pig would just be too much of a good thing. Hope they bring home a doggie bag.

Your friend,
Niamh

Kirby said...

Bank treats...Yummers! I love what I get at the bank, so I'm sure you loved it too!! It's too bad you can't go to the pig roast, perhaps you Mom and Dad could bring a piggy bag home for you. He he!

Your pal,

Hi Maggie & Mitch,

I am feeling so much better, thank you! The pig roast sounds like so much good foodies to eat. I am feeling better and I love pork. Mommy was able to get me to eat pork yesterday, she makes the yummiest pork tenderloin, she poors Dale's seasoning over it and wraps it in bacon and bakes it for a few hours and it just melts in your mouth..droolicious!
Kisses,
Sami

Woof Maggie and Mitch

What a bummer, no pig roast. Is there a way to sneak in? Can you hide in the back of the car? If you do, send us some, it sounds really yummy.

Joe Stains said...

Do the noodles soften? That looks like such a good idea, and very easy!!

Southbay Girl said...

M&M, Your mom is pretty talented to make a salad that takes two days to make! It sounds yummy-well for me it does but my mommy doesn't eat meat-is there a vegetarian version for her??

Sorry you can't go to the party tomorrow...but I bet you guys get something! Hey the cookies were pretty special! I'm going to have to tell mom to take me to the bank-but we don't have drive-thru's here!!

Hi, Maggie and Mitch -

The bank where Mama and Papa go also gives me (Hershey) treats - but not salmon ones. Papa likes taking me to the bank with him.

We like the expressions on your face when you get to sample something. Mama laughs because that happens to us when we get tio try something delicious. Have a good weekend.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

Kess And Her Mama said...

Wow. Fusion salad! Cool. My mum loves Japanese ramen. Thks for sharing the recipe.
P.S. Unfortunately, I didn't get any mooncake this time coz mum says it's too sweet for doggies...Sigh!

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

That salad looks very yummy! It's too bad you two don't get to go to the pig roast. Piggies are very tasty...as are napkins! We hope they bring some piggy home for you!

Mm Mm! A pig roast -- I love it when Dennis makes his BBQ 'cause he gives us freebies before he puts the sauce on. Ohhhh man! Wish I could be there!

Check out my blog to see what we've been up to and if you can recognize the Airedales at the agility trials we were at on Thursday.

How fun - I used to be a bank teller, and I often worked in the drive through. I would buy my own doggie treats to send out to all the dog-clients that would drive through. I even had some regulars. I also had clients that I knew had doggies at home, so I would always give them a bone to take home to their pals. I'm glad you have a nice teller over there who loves the doggies as much as I did.
