Recognize the name?
Well, if you haven’t heard of Turd Ferguson, the name originally came from Saturday Night Live’s “Celebrity Jeopardy.” Norm MacDonald played Burt Reynolds, who changed his name to “Turd Ferguson” during the game because he thought “it [was] a funny name.” Indeed, it is a funny name. 😆
Well, I have my very own Turd Ferguson in my life:
Now, don’t get me wrong, Murphy is a really good dog. Mal and I say this all of the time, and I don’t know how we got so lucky wit him. But, like every dog, Murphy can be really annoying. And, like most pugs, he can also be really stubborn. So, when he’s being annoying/stubborn, we call him “Turd” because he’s basically being, um, a turd.
When his inner Sock Monster comes out.
Or when his peanut butter addiction takes over and he chews the dishtowels in the kitchen.
Or when he puts up a fight after a bath.
Or when he pouts because he doesn’t want to walk anymore. Poor baby.
I love my dog more than anything in the whole world, but sometimes, he can be a big, fat turd.
So, that’s where Murphy got his nickname. It’s usually “Turd” for short, but sometimes, we call him “Turd Ferg.” He doesn’t seem to mind. 😉
I tried something new for breakfast this morning: The Fitnessista’s Perfect Protein Pancakes! 😀
I made some changes to the recipe because I didn’t have all of the ingredients that it called for. I used chocolate protein powder instead of vanilla and substituted oat flour for the Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-free Baking Mix. I also doubled the recipe to make breakfast for my hubby. But, other than that, I followed the recipe! 😉
As you know, I love pancakes, especially the kind that Mal makes for me. But, even after eating 4 or 5 or 6, I’m hungry again about an hour later. As Gina says: “Pancakes are like the sexy boyfriend with a lame-o personality- delicious, but lacking staying power.” Exactly. I love that Gina added some serious protein to this pancake recipe. These pancakes are hearty, delicious, and very filling– pretty much perfect in my book! 😀
I added mashed banana and hippy butter to my Perfect Protein Pancakes this morning.
And, of course, I had some iced coffee. I LOVE the Birthday Cake flavor!!!
Check out the mess behind my breakfast! I usually push random crap stuff out of the way to take photos of my meals. Do other bloggers do this or am I just a lazy slob?
Did you notice my turtle plate this morning? I know you guys have seen these Thomas Paul Sea Life Plates on my blog a million times by now. They’re fun (and dishwasher safe), so I rock them almost everyday.
