R ~ Rooster

    We got new neighbors. They came complete with a noisy rooster.
    Waking up at two in the morning to a noisily crowing rooster is not my idea of a good time.  
    This particular rooster doesn't seem to get adequate rest. He crows at every opportunity he has.
    Lying in bed awake in the middle of the night, listening to him crowing away has me menu planning for the neighbor lady. I won't do it, but the thought of mailing recipes to her is a delightful little distraction as the crowing continues.
        Recipes would include:
        Rooster Pot Pie
        Rooster Noodle Soup
        Crispy Fried Rooster
        Rooster and Dumplings
        Sesame Crusted Rooster
        Rooster Tenders
    And the list could go on for a while.
    I've tried praying blessings on the neighbors and their rooster. But mostly he's just super annoying.


  1. Rooster pot pie, your recipe list is fun, though the rooster crowing could drive a person around the bend!

  2. It sounds to me like they need to close this rooster up in a dark hen house at night. I know that sometimes roosters will crow when people turn on their outside lights at night. Crispy Fried Rooster sounds good to me!

  3. How can they not hear their rooster carrying on at all hours? Back before the days when everybody had caller ID, my parents had neighbors who kept their dog outside all night. It only took two nights of Daddy calling them up at 2 AM, or thereabouts, and saying "Your dog is barking" for the poor puppy to be brought inside at bedtime.

  4. Oh my goodness. I'm so sorry but glad you still have somewhat of a sense of humor about the whole thing. You'd think the crowing would bother them too.

  5. Haha! I have a friend State-side who keeps chickens. In her municipality, though, roosters are outlawed because of the noise. Where I live in Vietnam, roosters are common. I even woke to one when we lived in the metropolis of DaNang! They no longer wake me up, but my new house has our bedroom in the middle, so the battling crows of roosters from somewhere behind us and a block beyond our front door don't penetrate to my bedroom.

  6. your list of recipes has me laughing out loud!
