Dinner challenges

I've mentioned before that Rocky makes us laugh out loud almost every day. He's recently become more insistent about climbing up on the couch while we eat dinner and trying to steal food off of Thomas's plate.

On Friday, he was gobbling up food remnants when he mistook decoration on the plate (a fish fin) as a piece of cheese. He excitedly tried to lap it up and, when that failed, tried again. Of course Thomas and I laughed about this, so Rocky kept it up for our enjoyment. I hope to get this on video if he keeps doing it!

Last night, we were eating bean burritos, and Rocky wouldn't take no for an answer. He climbed on the couch, up Thomas's arm, and finally onto Thomas's plate. He finally got what he wanted:Because Thomas gave in, it's likely this behavior will continue.

Ooh, what ingredients do you use in your burritos? They look good! I have three variations: (1) pinto beans, spinach, and cherry tomatoes; (2) black beans, corn, bell peppers, and seitan; and (3) black beans, zucchini, summer squash, and corn. I'm always looking for new variations.

Well when a bird wants Mexican food they'll do just about anything!

Elizabeth -- my burritos are BORING in comparison to yours! This is our quick no time to cook meal, so they're usually just black beans, cheese, sour cream, onions, and sriracha sauce.

I'm hoping to be more inventive now that summer's here -- your combinations sound absoultely delicious!

Sharon -- too funny! Rocky does love to eat.
