Yum Yum Saturday

Greetings fellow foodies! This is The Daily Bone Yum Yum Saturday Edition and I'm your hungry doggie host Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

We had a wonderful dinner last Sunday with lots of delicious food! Pork shoulder roast with Jamaican jerk seasoning, mashed sweet potatoes, green beans, black beans, and rice. 

Let's get a closer look at that pork roast: 


Ghostwriter took an entire jar of Tropical Pepper Company Island Jerk Seasoning, slathered it over the roast, and let it marinate for a few days in the fridge. Then she slow roasted it at 250º uncovered, for almost 8 hours! The spice mix got all blackened, but the meat was melt-in-your-mouth tender. 

Look at this feast! 

The rest of the week was kind of ho hum. 

Spaghetti with sausage and green beans. 

Meatloaf, baked potato, and green beans. Yes, we had green beans almost every day. Ghostwriter loves green beans. Dad made sandwiches with the leftover pork roast and barbecue sauce for himself when ghostwriter was working, but he didn't take any pictures. Below is some extra delicious teriyaki salmon, Nishiki rice, and steamed vegetables. 

And now, here are this week's food and doggie comics:

Dog Eat Doug

Red and Rover

(I always get the last bite from ghostwriter's plate.) 

Here's a picture of our angel Joey dog, to whom we dedicate our Saturday Yum Yum posts, doing some professional food watching last year: 

Barbecued ribs, corn bread, and salad. Heavenly!

Hope you have a good and delicious week.

  8. I had some really lovely pork neck last night. But they ruined it a bit by not having enough real vegetables (mushrooms are NOT, I repeat NOT a vegetable). Fortunately the desert was panna cotta which I loooove!

  14. My peeps also love green beans. They also seem to have them every day. That roast looks pawsome and I hope you got some! Hugs!

  15. Hmmm, your ho humm food looks purrty delish to me, you know! The peeps here had 'zoodles' one night, with raw tomato sauce, and on top of that was a grilled chicken breast. They had an orange for dessert...and a side salad first.

    Actually it was yummy they said.
    Today pawppy had yogurt, smoothies with kefir and mashed fruit...and cold coffee...he was not allowed hot food or solid chewy food...he had to have a big bad molar pulled out. Maybe by the third he can eat soft regular that is boring:)
    I got to lick the cups with the yogurt and kefir...Yummy!!

    I love green beans too...and so does petcretary.

    This week or maybe a bit later depending on her schedule, petcretary is going to slow cook a beef roast in IPA beer...with mushroom sauce on the side. Maybe a sweet potato also.
