Food Report

Good day friends, fans, and family. This is The Daily Bone and I’m your culinary doggie host Joseph (Joey dog) Stephens, Doggie Chief Inspector, comestibles division, and founder of 
the Yum Yum Coalition.

My bombastic associate Chester L. W. Stephens is busy taking a beauty nap. 

I noticed I haven’t done my food report in quite a while, so without further ado, we’ll take a look at what’s cooking today as well as the last few days.

Friday’s supper (above) was teriyaki salmon, nishiki rice, and steamed vegetables. High in vitamins and omega 3 fatty acids. Delicious!

I don’t know why my humans get Chinese take-out food (above: fresh spring rolls, steamed rice, shrimp toast, and cashew chicken) when they are perfectly capable of doing their own stir fry (below.) This has thinly sliced chicken that was marinated in soy sauce, garlic and ginger, stir-fried with onions, sweet red peppers, mushrooms, pea pods, and baby broccoli, plus udon noodles, all finished with oyster sauce. Yum!

Speaking of home cooking, we saw this little spider and tried to tell him he had made a poor real-estate choice. Unfortunately, he didn’t listen. We have not seen him since.

My good friend Charlie from Australia has mentioned seeing this strange robot-looking unit in our back yard and wondered what it was. This is our old propane gas grill named Barbie Cue, and she’s been with us for many years and has cooked us countless wonderful meals.

As you can see, Barb has been dormant for several months, but has been looking quite fashionable in her matching hat and ear muffs, with icicle jewelry hanging from her face. However, as soon as it gets warmer she will be back in business. Ooooooooo, yummy … steak, hamburgers, hot dogs, bratwurst, chicken with barbeque sauce, spare ribs, shrimp … spring can’t come soon enough for me!

That reminds me of a story. One spring a couple of starlings decided that the inside of Barb’s head would make an excellent nesting site. They packed her full of all kinds of leaves and sticks, grass and trash. It’s a good thing my humans looked inside there before turning Barb on, or else the starlings would have found out the hard way that they had central heating! Ka-boooooom! We have since put metal mesh inside the ear openings of Barb’s head so that the birdies can no longer get inside there.


Today we're having something nice and simple: home made ham and pea soup. Thick and hearty on a cold winter day. Yum. 

As much as we love to sample human food, we doggies fill up on our delicious yum yum crunchy meatballs healthy weight maintenance doggie food. (As you can see, my colleague has been really packing away the kibble: on his butt!)

And that’s my food report for today. Bone appetite!

    1. Joey dog here. Dad did make meatloaf and baked potatoes for supper yesterday. But Mom had to work overtime and didn't get home till almost 6PM. By then she was so tired she forgot to take a picture. But it was delicious! I think there are still leftovers …

  9. All of that food is making us feel weak and dizzy! We need our breakfast, mom! Barbie Cue is quite the fashion queen! We loved her story ☺

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

    1. Seriously, you wouldn't believe the amount of stuff those starlings crammed in there! They hit our next door neighbor's gas grill last spring, and we told her we'd seen starlings bringing nesting material into the vent holes on the side of it. But when she looked in, she saw there were already eggs in there and she didn't want to disturb them. No cook-outs for her till the birdies fledged!

  10. We are drooling all over the keyboard. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  11. OH MY.... you certainly do have some DELICIOUS meals at your house... we are sort of Jelly over it. Esp. the SAMMIN.. WE LOVE sammin !!!

  12. We have a Barbie Cue too only we call it our grill organ. I think because it looks like an organ. Our organ tried to slip away in the storm last week but it only made it to our lawn. Now mom and dad have put a rope in it LOL.

  13. Chester your Mom and Dad's Stir fry looks better than the take-away! You made our Mom LOL with the kibble remark about Joey dog MOL MOL! Happy Moanday!!!!

  14. If those foods are always like that, we are moving in
