Carnaval, Scrambled Dogs and Friends

Dear Family and Friends,

Today was Carnaval (Fat Tuesday).  Last week Chuck and I decided to invite a few friends over and do the
"scrambled dog" thing again.  We've served scrambled dogs in the past.  Our friends either love us or they like the dogs because they always come back for more.  Scrambled dogs served in the past.

I grew up in Columbus, Georgia and "scrambled dogs" are a staple there.  I don't know of any other city they are served in, but I am working on introducing them to Ecuador.  Wouldn't that be a hoot, scrambled dogs served in only two cities of the world, Columbus, Georgia and Cuenca, Ecuador?

This time I didn't forget to take pictures of our friends.

If you know anything about Cuenca, you know that the Kookaburra Cafe is one of the favorite ex-pat hang outs. Tourists know if they go there for breakfast or lunch they will meet up with Cuenca ex-pats.  Well my friends, here are the famous Chris and Jenny Bluefields, the owners of Kookaburra Cafe.  You probably can guess by the name of their cafe that they are from Australia.

As the afternoon wore on, it began to rain and then hail.  Some of the folks moved inside to the dining table.

Besides scrambled dogs, we had a wonderful green salad provided by Bea and Bob, a delightful spicy lentil curry dish provided by Jason and Donna and Rich and Nancy brought the most delicious chocolate cake.

Thank you friends for sharing this day with us.

  1. Thank you for inviting us! I loved the fact that when we left, there was no hail, and the roads were already starting to dry! The food was delicious! Thanks for all your hard work!

  2. Karen, we had a great time. Friends are a wonderful treasure.

  3. Ashleigh, scrambled dogs are yummy! But as so many yummy things, they are not exactly healthy!!

  4. My philosophy is this...may I stay just healthy enough to enjoy my life to the fullest which definitely includes wonderful things like scrambled dogs!
