Feeeed me Seymour!

Momma, does it bite?

This time of year we have 'European artichokes'. They're huge and practically a meal in itself . 
Momma and daddy love them. Funny though, when they eat them, they can go toot for toot with Betty.

No way, no one can out toot me.

Hi Stella! That artichoke is huge! Do you eat it? Please eat it before it eats you.

Grapes make Mom toot and I'm sure she could give Betty a run for her money. Her toots even make me leave the room!

yum!!! we have been eating those too. i have found that steaming them in the microwave is so much easier and faster that we can enjoy them more often. and i keep forgetting to mention, i love all the kids in their new shades! so cute.

Can your momma do a blog lesson on how to cook them??? I always see them and want so badly to do something with them, but I have no clue how to prepare them.

Dip-Dip and The Bridge said...

Stella, you are just so HUGABLE!
That artichoke is a whopper, don't eat it all at once and erm maybe it's best if Betty sticks to kibble.

Artichoke Fartichoke is what we say. The choke part is right. We like to save ours for bedtime and give mom the ol' dutch oven. She gags and we think it is hilarious. Go Betty! You are our hero.

Between the humans and Betty, you might need to get a carbon monoxide detector. Your house could blow up.


Lola said...

You eat those? Are you sure it's not the other way around. That looks dangerous to me.

wags, Lola

pee s: OMD! My catpcha word is "pressie"! Is that not one of the most favorite words in a dog's vocabulary. I wonder if it's like an omen or something...
