Sous Chef Offering Kitchen Assistance

With rainy, cold weather outside, and dinner being prepared inside, Cheoah offered her services as Sous Chef to assist with the meal.

I can assist with the shredding of that chicken.

We had a steady rain all day yesterday. With the extreme drought and wildfires, we are so thankful for the rain and do not wish to complain. However, Hu-Dad said he kept tripping over dogs all day long because no one wanted to be outside.

Not a trip hazard.

As evening arrived, the rain halted and everyone went outside . . . except for Cheesewhiz who insisted on helping prepare the human dinner. Hu-Dad muttered his thanks to her many times.

I am the cutest Sous Chef anywhere.

Hu-Dad prepared a timelapse of one of the recent storms and posted it on his photography website. If you watch it really carefully, you can see a few of us make special guest appearances in his video.

    Did you get to help shred the chicken? That sounds like a GREAT job!

    In the old days the king of the castle, and seriously, I’m NOT inferring that that king is YOU hu-dad… but the king had a food taster just in case there was any funny business going on. I applaud CheeseWhiz for stepping up for the job!!!!

      Yes Cheoah the official taster is willing to take one for the team!

    Mom ‘n Ebby agree that: maybe Cheoah is traveling undercover as a food inspector, making sure everything is safe to eat. Chicken, especially, requires “close” inspection.

View from the Ranch

The view from the ranch, our neighbors, is awesome, especially as the leaves begin changes and the cold weather rolls in to our mountain.
