The stare down


This weekend I decided to make shish kabobs.

So I got out the 1970s skewers that my mom gave me...


and as I was loading the meat and vegetables on...


I suddenly felt like I was being watched.





I'm guessing they wanted some.

What do you think?

  10. Hi Rue, glad to see you're back blogging! I enjoyed your blog before, your beautiful home, and sweet spirit! I have decided to give it another shot too! Not sure if you remember me, I was one the old RMS crew, who blogged under Scooterblu's Whimsy for years, then Ramblings of a Southern Girl. I'm back under RofaSG, but with a slightly new direction. Wow, there is so much too learn and update, alot has changed in blogging in just a year! I did enjoy browsing over your new blog. I adore your home, especially the kitchen, and your two little companions are precious! Take care, I'll be back! :) ~Rhonda

  11. Because I know that you love such things! I wonder if your skewers are in fact something that are similar to skewers, but were used in Victorian times to decorate joints of roasted meat and so. I just wondered because they are so wonderfully decorative. I might be totally wrong and I hope that you will forgive me for the intrusion about them! Might be worth looking into though! xx

    Be a sweetie,

  13. What sweethearts! And good company! I get flustered with too many people in the kitchen while I'm trying to cook, but dogs are different, I miss them when they're not in there to step over. At least yours watch you from your breakfast nook!

    And yes, those vintage skewers are fabulous!

    1. Accckkk! Please ignore any and all misplaced modifiers. Your pups are cute, but they don't look delicious. They may, however, be beautifully presented.

  20. Well, that looks about right. I think I would be right there with them, staring you down. How'd those kabobs taste? Mouthwatering delicious I bet.

  21. Thank you for today's giggle. They do look like you are just waiting to drop something!

  22. Ha! Know the feeling well! We also had shush kabobs for the fourth! Loved them! Too funny with the dogs!

  23. Who could resist those puppy eyes?! Not moi. I'm afraid I would have given them their fill and gone hungry. Not that that would be a bad thing. I could afford a few pangs of hunger now and then. :/

  24. I think you were being watched! If I was standing there I'd be watching too and hoping you'd share some with me. I haven't made kabobs in such a long time and now I want some. I haven't even turned on my grill this summer because it doesn't seem like summer., more like a monsoon with no sun.

  25. Awwww...so cute. I always call what little Layla does during my cooking as "The Kitchen Dance". She never gets stepped on in spite of me whirling and twirling.

    Boy...those kebobs look great!

  28. I want some! LOL doesn't matter what I'm doing, if in the kitchen, I've got an extra pair of eyes with me. No telling hoe many times I've tripped over Autumn. Nicholas is usually hiding under the sofa.
