Bloc de Foie Gras de Canard

Dad has been in Maine for the last few days and mom has been eating the craziest dindins as usual when he's gone!
One night she decided to have Sally's very generous gift to us - bloc de foie gras de canard!We have never had this before but a lot of you told us that it was like a liver pate and seeing as mom loves Liverwurst ( yes, she and gram are both weird like that) she knew that she would love it!
And guess what? We loved it too!Mitch has never gotten to snag food out of mom's mouth before but she let him give it a whirl! You did great, Mitch! Nice reward, huh?!
Mom gave Mitch a second chance at it. The first time it was celery and the second time, it was toast!Dindin was great, Sally! Thank you very, very much!

And for dessert~ Mitch's favorite!
Thanks for the apple slices, mom!
Before we go, we have to tell you about an awesome video we saw at Bug and Bandit's blog. You might want to grab a tissue first!

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

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Sally said...

Oh, that's what I call an nice mommy. Mine would never share that yummi with me. But dad ;-)

Nice woooh

Unknown said...

umm ahem.. I'll say it. I think mom was missing dad a bit! Mitch you are quite a talent on snagging food -without begging too?!!

Rocky Creek Scotties and Rocky Creek Ramblings said...

Looks like a great din-din. Our Mom would never trust us to take food from her mouth - she's afraid she'd loose her nose or something.

I can do that trick! But Teka goes straight for the nose, so she doesn't get to try anymore.

We are so happy to hear the good news about the easing back of the kidney disease. It must be all the TLC you get too - besides the foodies.
Take care and look after youselves.

Chef said...

Half way through the post I was thinking, "if only Mitch could get some of that stuff on an apple." Then what do ya know? He got his apple for dessert. Mitch, you must have really enjoyed that meal! I'm just drooooling.

We've seen that video before. It's a heartbreaker until you see that all that sweet girl needed was some love. It was a tail-wagging ending which made us go from very sad to very happy.

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Ha, our Dad is away too and our Mom is the same way - she always tries different things then. We all love liverwurst or livergreat as we call it, so maybe we'd like that fancy foie gras de canard. Sounds intriguing.

We are off to check out that video.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

We had to come back to tell you we watched that video, we cried, and we smiled. How very sad to be so terrified but how wonderful that there is someone there who cared enough to give a much needed hug.

Sue said...

Our Mom eats all her favorites when Dad's out of town, too. She doesn't share very well, though. Dad is much better at sharing food.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Mmmm lots of yummy food...

Mitch loves apples? I didn't know that. Hmm, I love carrots and I overheard M say she's going to be giving us green beans next. I prefer the pate...

Ahh yes, I understand, it sucks to prepare dinner and have it alone.

Goodness, foie gras is darn classy stuff! You lucky fellas!

Ben said...

Allow me to speak to the wonders of Liverwurst and the brilliant taste buds of your Mom and Gram.
Last year when I was sick - on the bad days, the real bad days - the only thing I would eat was LIVERWURST. Momma says liverwurst saved my life - somedays it was the only way she got me to take my pills.
Thanks for stoppin by my blog and so very happy to hear bout your love of the liverwurst.

TwoSpecialWires said...

We've been reading ... just not writing! A big CONGRATULATIONS on your amazingly good lab results, Maggie! Goes to show what's possible! We're so happy for all of you! And what a great way to achieve it ... with the pawsome foods you're getting to eat! Sounds like it's a win win situation!

We know you've done it, but be sure and thank your moma for all that special cooking and food preparation. Mmm mmm. You've made us hungry. And we know just where the apple are. (If we had liverwurst, we'd ask for that, but apples run a close second.)

Even I can't do liverwurst, but more power to you! :)

Puggle Preston said...

oh...if I knew your daddy were in Maine, I would have looked harder for him when I was there on Saturday!
I thought I was lucky when mom gave me a bite of her lobster roll. You guys got to try foie gras?! No other dogs can top that!


Tosca the Lakeland Terrier said...

You really know how to live with all those nommy foodables.

Hey! We saw that movie. It had a happy ending, so that is good, but it was kind of scary.


Taffy said...

Sorry it has taken me so long to get over and visit you two....It is all Mom's fault! Of course, she hasn't been online much since she has not been feeling too good (slowly getting better).
Wow! You guys sure eat well....can I come over and visit? You guys are my first Airedale furiends ;o)
