Teaser Tell All Time……….

Standard

Hello Teaser fans……………………..using an older graphic for fun this morning for the Tell All………………..yesterday’s Teaser was a goodie wasn’t it?    There were a LOT of guesses – a LOT – but only one of them was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER and we’ll tell you WHO in a few minutes.

FIRST UP though is the FIRST COMMENTER!

Oh I’m dancing because I was super early to class yesterday and commented – was it ME ME ME ?

No – sorry about that…………..good dancing though.    It wasn’t you I’m afraid, it was……………..

Miss Sharon of Friends Furever!!

HIP HIP HOORAY FOR Miss SHARON!

Here’s your reward for being an early bird:

I was the very first to comment on the Teaser of November 12, 2019!

DARN – that’s what I get for sleeping in yesterday!

Then we waited and waited – so many GREAT guesses were coming in – we had some that were VERY CLOSE, but in the end there was one that got the right city and so our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER was…………………….

Miss Janet of The Cat on My Head !

WOOO HOOOO MISS JANET AND THE KITTIES BLUE!

This badge is for you Miss Janet…………….concatulations:

I was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the tough Teaser post of November 12, 2019! WOOT!

It was a very tough Teaser we thought…………..and who was the person who sent us the fabulous photo????????

Our GUEST TEASER was from Jackie of Two Devon Cats and this is a photo of ski jumps in Tromso, Norway.   We know it looks like the ski jumps are such that if you went down them you’d land on a roof but it’s of course an optical illusion – we are looking WAY beyond those buildings to the ski slopes!   This really was difficult to figure out !!   Thank you Miss Jackie for the photo………

My fabulous photo was featured on the Tuesday Teaser of November 12, 2019!

Did you also guess correctly?   As of when Mom and I worked on this post, only Miss Janet had guessed right but if you guessed right too – please take one of these badges for yourself!

I guessed RIGHT on the Teaser of November 12, 2019, but I wasn’t the first one…..darn…..

If you were way off base or couldn’t figure it out PERIOD, you still get a GREENIE………….a special FALL one too!

I was WRONG with my guess on the Teaser of November 12, 2019. At least I tried…..sniff sniff.

GREENIE FOR ME!

ME TOOOOOOOOO!

Let’s see what the Cheer Team has to say about the results of this week’s Teaser!

Here we are all cute and fluffy
Having hot flashes or is it just stuffy?
Winners we had them though it was touch and go
Then Janet of Cat on my Head stole the show!
She was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER and got it right
As for FIRST COMMENTER we had a crowd in sight!
But Sharon of Friends Furever pushed to the front of the line
She got the badge for commenting and now she feels fine!
This was a tough Teaser so you all did well
Now let’s hope there’s yummy food at lunch so we’ll all feel swell!

GO TEAM!

Well Sarge nice to see you – I didn’t hear the sound of ripping gym pants so I guess you went with SPANDEX??

We’ll have to see if the school can pick up the tab for some cold weather gear for Security.    Thanks Captain Clowie!

SPARKS and Reminder

Standard

It’s Monday again and time for us to SPARK together!    What exactly IS this Monday SPARK thing we do?   Well, most of you know that Annie of McGuffy’s Reader – who started SPARKS – was hacked and has been on an extended break from blogging although her idea to spread some inspiration on Monday of every week goes on.   Many of us who participated in her SPARKS Blog Hop and found value in sharing a thought on Monday continue doing that to hopefully give each other a “Monday boost” – perhaps something to think about to inspire us in the week ahead OR help us deal with something that’s on our mind.    Why not join us by sharing something that SPARKS you?   It might just start a spark in us too.

I’ve got a very simple SPARK today……………but even though it’s simple that doesn’t mean it isn’t important.

This really hits home with me.   When I was a little girl there were always things that were to be “kept for a special occasion”……….that included everything from the best china, linen, silverware, clothing, special snacks, drinks, ON AND ON AND ON.    I kind of knew it was just my way of Mom saying “not now”……….but that’s part of the reason I love this particular SPARK because saving all those things is silly – every day we’re alive is a special occasion – especially if you’ve ever gone through anything “dramatic” in your life………..traumatic OR dramatic in fact.   So don’t save things for special occasions – let every single day be a special occasion.    Lesson learned!

Today is also Veterans Day.    My Dad was a Veteran………….he was a very proud Air Force officer who served his country and was actually SAD to retire!   He loved military life and we all loved it too because we got to see the world with him.    Happy Veteran’s to everyone who has served their country in any capacity.

I miss you Dad…..and was always proud of you.

Happy Monday………Hugs, Pam

 

Teddy says “don’t forget tomorrow is TEASER TUESDAY……the post will be live at a special surprise time” and we have a great photo for you to guess from a Guest Teaser!!”   

 

Sunday Selfie Hopping!

Standard

Happy Sunday!    You know what that means – Blog Hop with The Cat On My Head.    Our pals the Kitties Blue would love it if you would join us by posting a selfie by simply clicking the badge above and linking up with the rest of us.    I’m a long-time Hopper and you should join us because it’s a BIG CROWD that does.

Mom just happened to capture my photo yesterday while I was lounging in the upstairs hallway outside my Dad’s office door.    I had just managed to wake up from a lovely long nap when there Mom was sneaking up on me with that danged camera of hers.    Well, I thought I’d cooperate – I didn’t look at the camera so no laser eyes – I just looked away a bit and she said something like “OH TEDDY YOU ARE SO ADORABLE” or something like that so that means she was happy with the photo.

Here it is before she started messing with it:

THEN of course she just HAD to mess around with Lunapic and artify me up a bit……………………

This is AFTER she used the STORYTIME art effect from Lunapic…….and in spite of my complaining I actually quite like the way this turned out…..weird rug effects and just check out my STRIPES AND SPOTS will you????????????????    SO, she did a puzzle of this one……..if you’re so inclined, you can drive yourself nuts trying to put me back together again!

Just Click this tiny version of ME and you’ll be able to do the jigsaw puzzle

Hopefully I can keep Mom out of trouble with that camera of hers the rest of the day so I can GO BACK TO SLEEP!

Happy Sunday……………..Hugs, Teddy

Bakin’ With Bacon and the King

Standard

Greetings Bacon Lovers!    I’ve got another TREAT for you today!

I know Thanksgiving is coming very soon and while this isn’t something you would have for your WHOLE meal, it’s still something that would make a very tasty appetizer for holiday time – whether Thanksgiving or Christmas.  Just a snack – or maybe even something to put on a brunch buffet if you have company!    It sure is good – The ROYAL Mom and Dad can testify to that.

Shrimp-Pineapple-Bacon Party Pizza

Ingredients

  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 pound uncooked shrimp (31-40 per pound), peeled and deveined
  • 1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened pineapple tidbits, drained and juice reserved
  • 6 thick-sliced bacon strips, apple- or maple-smoked is best
  • 1 small green pepper, diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce (optional – in fact I didn’t use it but it’s in the recipe and if I’d had it I would have used it – hoisin is delicious)
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) spreadable chive and onion cream cheese (it was in the cheese department in all four of our grocery stores so pretty “common” to find!)
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, plus more for topping

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400°. On a lightly floured surface, unfold pastry sheet; cut in half. Roll each half into a 10×6-in. rectangle. Place on a baking sheet. Fold under 1/4-in. of edges to form a rim. Prick center of pastry with a fork. Repeat with remaining pastry sheet. Bake until crust is golden, about 12 minutes. While pastry is baking, marinate shrimp in juice from pineapple tidbits.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook bacon, stirring occasionally, over medium-low heat until crisp, about 12 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Reserve 1-1/2 tablespoons drippings.
  • Heat 1 teaspoon of drippings in skillet over medium-high heat; cook pepper until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Remove from skillet. Drain shrimp; add to skillet with remaining bacon drippings. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook and stir until shrimp turn pink, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in hoisin sauce.
  • Spread cream cheese over puff pastries. Scatter shrimp evenly over cream cheese. Sprinkle bacon and green pepper over shrimp. Using paper towels, squeeze pineapple tidbits dry; scatter over pizza. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake until crust is browned and cheese has melted, about 10 minutes. Let stand briefly before cutting each pastry into 6 rectangles. If desired, top with addition Parmesan cheese.

KITCHEN SPY GUY:     “If I’m real quiet, perhaps The King of Bacon won’t notice me hiding in the back of the kitchen watching him make this – sure sounds delish and I want to make it myself!!!!!!”

Oh little kitty – don’t eat that leaf – I’ve got something way better with shrimpies and bacon in it!

Give this one a whirl everyone – it’s really delicious.   Would I kid you?  Nope!

YES!

It’s good to be King – especially around the holidays!   Join me next week for another winner…..
