Christian is checking to make sure his yummydoodle is okay. I'm sure it is. Probably very tasty, too. . . .


  1. The meatloaf recipe sounds delicious :D I really need to get ingredients for every recipe on this blog and just have a recipe cook week :D

    Derrick and Christian both look yummy. I'd try both of them if I had the chance yes :D

  2. This is a Tasty Meat Treat Tuesday for sure.
    And Cheryl you picked the perfect complimenting Hunkness.
    Derrick just wants us to join him. You can bring the puppy. Poor Christian is feeling a bit inferior. "My Meat isn't that BIG.
    How does he get that thing to bend that way"? "It's ok, you're still real cute". Thunderliciousness is such a gift for this Tuesday. WOOHOO

  3. Good morning ladies! Is everyone hungry now?

  4. Hungry yes! *evil grin* For food, not so much....

    Recipe looks good Donna-and Derrick is the perfect visual side dish!

    I have to go check out the puppy now! I can't believe I missed seeing him last night.

  5. If your Facebook page is anything like mine, Lisa, you'll have to look hard to find that puppy! But don't worry, I'm blogging about him here tomorrow.
    In the meantime, enjoy the Derrick and Christian Meatloaf!

  6. You got a PUPPY? Ooh, I can't wait to see! LMAO at Donna's Thunderlicious recipe. I want mine served by the Big Pickle guy, though!

  7. LOL! Don't we all!
    Yes, I got a puppy! There's a picture on Facebook, but I'm posting more of him tomorrow!

  8. Big Pickle and a Big Juicy Meatloaf. That's a yummylicious Combination. With Two Round Spuds.
