New Food-Maker

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  So, yeah, there's a new food-maker in town.  Oh, I don't mean person-wise, it's still Mom. I mean machine-wise!  Check it out -- this is the first thing that it made:

Smoked and grilled burger with smoked onions!
Homegrown tomato courtesy of my favorite neighbor, Tao.

Doesn't that look great?!? Ah. I know what you're wondering.  The answer is no. No, I did not get to help. Why not? This is where I was:

"How am I supposed to help from in here?"

Seriously. Dad got to go out and help, but me? NO. Something about "NoNoMaggieHotHotHOT" or something equally trivial. Bummed me right out. Do people say that any more? Cam didn't get to help either - that's her   napping  standing guard duty behind me. Anyway ...

It's a super-duper wood pellet grill and Mom and Dad are all kinds of excited about it.  They even bought a pizza oven attachment that goes inside of it, so Mom can make wood-fired pizzas.  Today, an accessory for that came in the mail; I felt obligated to check it out.

"Check it out, Mags!  What do you think?"
"This is ... very appealing."

Ha!  Get it?  "Appealing"?!?  And it's a pizza peel?!?

"Oh, Mags.  Groannnn!"
"Hey.  Somebody had to say it!"

Anyway, pizza is next on the smoking agenda.  I can't wait!

Oh.  As per the second photo, the pellet grill gets to live by the back door, under the covered deck, but when Mom fires it up, it will go on the outer deck.  Mom and Dad don't want a visit from the Fire Department!  And the puppy food container really has extra wood pellets in it, not kibble.  Unfortunately.

I'll let you know if Mom makes anything really cool with it --- like treats for me and Cam!!!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  2. It's always fun for our people to get new stuff. We hope yours enjoy the new grill.

  3. Hamburgers and then pizza made right outside your back door! OMD, you girls are sooooooooo lucky! I hope you get to sample everything!

  4. OH, that is going to be so cool. The three grands that are usually here have a nice smoker too. Their Dad just loves to smoke brisket and ribs and all sorts of good stuff. We have to tell hm about that pizza thingie. Bet they would love that too. Mom got stuck on the tomato - she has a few on her one plant on the deck, but that looks like an awesome one.
