Sunday lunch surprise

It's not often we have anything leftover after Sunday lunch but this weekend the Girl Of The House (GOTH) and her boyfriend managed to find time to come round for a proper roast dinner cooked by the Lady Of The House (LOTH).
The Boy Of The House (BOTH) helped with the preparations (podding peas, peeling potatoes and making the stuffing). The Man Of The House (MOTH) managed to stir himself to carve the joint at the appointed time.
Monkey the Greyhound played his part by venturing into the kitchen and staying there while the LOTH and BOTH were preparing the repast.
This was new and something he had never done before as he likes to remain on his day bed in the front room away from anything as common as work.
We thought it was only fair that as Monkey had made the effort to watch the preparations Monkey got to join in by finishing off the leftovers.
It didn't take him long to get through the garlic and rosemary lamb, roast potatoes, stuffing, peas and carrots. He seemed a bit miffed that there wasn't a Yorkshire pudding going spare but that didn't stop him devouring the lot in a trice.

Sunday lunch . . .

don't mind if I do.
Is that it?
PS. He stayed in the front room while I cleaned the cooker and got today's dinner ready.
Maybe the LOTH is right when she says Monkey is a fan of The Archers!

Soon, he'll be preparing the Sunday meal by himself! ;)

Monkey says he licked his own plate clean Sue . . . and he would have licked the rest if we'd let him.

Well, Monkey made sure you didn't need to wash his bowl up.
He'll be expecting a Sunday lunch every week now you know :-)
