This Sunday, I was supposed to go to the Wiwe Fox Tewwiew get togethew in Wivewside Pawk...
I wasn't suwe I could go ,cause i was sick the night befowe, but Sunday I woke up all bettew and full of enewgy anxious to go..so we took the subway up to 103rd stweet and walked to the wun...imagine my disappointment, when I saw that the only wiwe thewe was Gypsy, who had owganised it...
I decided to make the best of things and intwoduced myself to all the othew kinds of doggies thewe and played like a maniac in my usual style.
Gypsy wasn't intewested in playing at all.
Finally one othew cutie wiwe ,named Jeeves, fwom the uppew East side showed up..he was a dawling and played weally well.
I had a tewwific time despite being disappointed in not seeing hundweds of wiwes..I guess no one weads the invitations.
hewe is a video of the mowning

Aftew all the play I was hungwy, and since I was feeling fine today..Mommi gave me some of the leftovew soup to wawm me up

5 Potatoes (peel, cut into dice and cook in salted water till ¾ done, drain and save)
1 onion diced (small)
½ green pepper (roughly chopped up)
I tomato (peeled and chopped)

Please realize this is all approximate. I cook Hungarian things without measuring. I just know when it’s right, and tastes like my mothers’

Hi Asta,

I'm sorry I couldn't make it to the get together. I've been a bit under the weather too (throwing up, ya know.) Sorry I missed you and Jeeves & Gypsy. :-( I'm glad you all had a good time though! My vet said I could have oatmeal tonight for dinner (hmmm, that soup looks better!)

Daniella said...

Sorry it was a wee wire get together, but it still looked like fun. Mom met Jeeves once and loves that boy. He is a big smiler.
Soup sounds delish...Mom wants to know if you can get beef sausage as she's guessing that had pork and Mom don't eat no swine. Silly Mommy, I eat Pigs ears, and I love swine. Dad does too. Heh heh


PS Glad you feel better.

Gus said...

glad you are feeling better. Sorry the get together didn't work out...but you met some nice doggies, huh?

muzzer says...What, no wine in the soup? Maybe sub some for the water and hold the sour cream until it at the table, or not? what does your mommi think?



Duke said...

We loved the photo album, Asta! It sure looked like a fun time to us! Thank you for posting your recipe! We're going to get mom to make that!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Noah the Airedale said...

Oh well, hopefully next time there's a WFT get together more will show up. At least you got to meet some other doggies.

Wow, thanks so much for the soup recipe. We're going to ask D to make it while we're in Beechworth. If we have trouble getting that sausage is there a different type we can use??

Hugs and tail wags
Noah, Willow, Tess and Lucy

What a terrific slide show!! I loved seeing all those foxies together. We are so darn cute.

The soup recipe looks wonderful, but my mom usually doesn't make anything that has more than four ingredients. As soon as she read, "5 potatoes peel, cut into dice and cook until 3/4 done", I knew that we'd never see that soup. It was nice of you to share the recipe with us though.

My mom does make something that she calls "Pizza Soup". It has six ingredients. She really splurges sometimes. Here it is, if your are interested. It doesn't get any easier than this.

1 can Cream of Chicken soup
1 can Tomato Rice soup

Add 3 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard

Let come to a boil. Serve.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

Imagine meeting another Asta, cause that's my name too ? My son Cedric moved to New York last April, but I guess he didn't know about the get-together or he woulda been there. When you see my Dewey tell him to behave. He is in so much hot water right now, he doesn't need anymore or he'll drown.

Wow, what a nice slideshow and such a great day to meet other wires, the best of the best......

The weather here is turning stormy and it may be coming your way. Make sure the 4 wanderers hanging out of that Austin Healey put the roof up.

Daisy said...

Asta, I am very happy that you got all better in time to attend the event. It looks like you had a great time. I think you were the most beautiful doggie there, too!

The WriggleButts said...

That's kind of like me making cabbage rolls. Recipes? My Baba would probably think it a waste of paper to write down what should be in your blood. Of course, my Baba thinks we are all born with cabbage roll expertise. Mine are never even remotely as good as hers.

Stanley said...

Sweetpea Asta!

At least you know how to make the most out of ANY situation, and, you know how to have FUN, girlie! Good thing you showed up.

Gypsey looks like a sweetie, even though she didn't want to play. Looks to me like she's more of a networker type terrier. And Mr. Jeeves was very cool ~ giving love and showing interest to everydog.

At least you got to spend some good time with your mommi & daddi, and you got some great soup at the end of the day!

Thank your mommi for the recipe. If my girl EVER cooks again, she might try it!

Goober love,

Luckie Girl said...

Hey Asta,
I hope you have recovered from your cold. It sucks to be sick. That hungarian soup makes me hungry! Yummy!!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta
I am so happy to know that you felt better to go to the get together! Looks like you had fun anyway!
Tell your mom thanks for sharing her recipe! Sure the soup looks delicious!
Have a good night

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Oh the soup looks really yummy. I wonder if I can drink some too. I hope you're feeling better now Asta, keep warm

Joe Stains said...

We are glad you are feeling better but that sure stinks that no other wires showed up! Thanks for the recipe, my Mom loves to cook and really loves sweet and hot paprika, that is what she put in her beef stew! She will give this a try!

Anonymous said...

awww what a disappointment not to get to play with hundreds of wires! maybe the weather was just too cold. but it still looks like you had fun :) Jeeves is a handsome little guy. and he has good manners too? he's a keeper! :)

thank you for posting the recipe, asta :) when HM tries it out i will make sure i get some :)


Anonymous said...

thank you for the tip on the paprika stains, asta, HM didn't think of that! :) even pumpkin stains my hair! :p


Huskee and Hershey said...

The soup looks yum yum... I only hope my mom is a better cook, but well, can't complain too much myself cos she is a pretty good 'tummy-rubber'.. hee...
Looks like you had fun on your day out!

Boo Casanova said...

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Hey Asta, I think that soup looks yummy but J1 doesn't do soup (some strange thing she has against hot liquids. Don't ask!). What a shame about the lack of other WFTs at your get together. If I organised something similar where I live there would be about 3 of us I think. J x

What a lovely trio you made. The soup does indeed sound yummy. Ma and pa seem to enjoy cooking, so I may get to try some yet.
