Barb over at Bella Vista is hosting a Rooster Party, and I've been invited. She's expecting a huge crowd, so be sure to go by and see what's been living in everybody's barnyard. The rumor is that she'll be serving chicken fingers and deviled eggs.
At my house, pigs definitely rule the roost, but I do have a fair amount of roosters as well. In fact, I have so many pigs and roosters that my boys once counted all of them, which led LBeau to declare "no more farm animals." I just ignored him.
So without further ado, or make that cock-a-doodle-doo, here's what I've brought to the party.
2. My sister-in-law Susie gave me this bulletin board that hangs on the end of one of my kitchen cabinets. Unfortunately, because of the shape of the bulletin board and the size of my cabinet, the poor roosters have to lie on their sides. I use it to keep track of party and wedding invitations and birth announcements. At Christmas time, it holds all of the photo cards we receive.
5. & 6. This colorful fellow is a pitcher, and sitting behind him is a deviled egg plate. No self-respecting Southern girl would be without at least one deviled egg plate. I keep these displayed in my cabinets behind glass doors. They're just too cute to hide away.
By my count that makes an even dozen. Too bad these roosters aren't hens, and then maybe I could get some fresh eggs out of the deal.
