Oh what a GREAT Teaser we had this week!!!!
Before I get down to business, I think I’ll go ahead and tell you WHO our fabulous Guest Teaser was and give them their BADGE OF THANKS for helping make our Teasers so much fun every week! This photo was sent to us by our friend Sarge (the Pawlice Commissioner of Blogville). Thanks Commish! This is for you…….
Let’s show you the photo once more before I tell you where Sarge’s family took this photo……………….OKEE DOKEE??????? Mr. Silver Briefcase – please pop that photo up on the screen for our visitors will ya ?
Neato photo isn’t it? It was taken at Little Round Top, Gettysburg PA, USA. On July 2, 1863, the second day of the Battle of Gettysburg, Union forces seized this high ground and held it throughout the remainder of the battle. This photo was taken from inside the monument looking out over the site. Here are two other shots Sarge sent in so you can see more………….
WAY cool photos and now for the NEWS you’re waiting to hear……………………..first of all, who commented first yesterday? Some of you who follow comments know that my buds from Facebook Oliver and Calvin were FIRST! This is for you guys:
My FIRST RIGHT GUESSER was my buddy and pal who is becoming a force of nature in the Tuesday Teaser Department (watch out Easy) is Raz from Friends Furever ! This is for you my friend:
If anyone else guessed Gettysburg, then you get a RIGHT GUESSER badge! WOOT!
AND, of course, those of you who were wrong – or had no clue on today’s Teaser, you have the right to add to your collection of GREENIES!
Now that wasn’t very painful was it? Certainly not for Raz – but maybe just a TWINGE from everyone else? Never fear -there’s always NEXT Tuesday……..and I just KNOW you’ll be here straining your eyes and using google search like mad so you can be FIRST……..yep – I know my audience by now don’t I ?? HAHAHA
NOW, for PART TWO of today’s blog post………..why PART TWO? Well, because it’s Bacon’s SHOPPING AROUND THE WORLD DAY! And you know I try to post for that occasion even though it means “double blog” stuff on Wednesdays once a month. Oh well………….this month’s challenge by Bacon is to post a recipe and ingredients for “ANYTHING WITH PASTA” !! Well, we do love our pasta around here (not me of course but my Mom and Dad are pasta-holics for sure). What I’m going to do is an old favorite which I think we MIGHT have actually blogged about on a previous “SHOPPING” but so what – some things should be repeated right? This is one of Mom’s favorite QUICKIE recipes and my Dad insists she make it A LOT. I’m OK with it because I always get a tiny bit of cooked hamburger!!
MOM’S HAMBURGER STROGANOFF
1 lb. hamburger (1 lb. Lean Ground Beef – $5.99)
Sour Cream (amount depends on your taste!) (16 oz. $1.29)
Flat Pasta Noodles (1 bag egg noodles $1.95)
1 Can Cream of Mushroom Soup ($.97)
2 cloves garlic chopped (or more if you’re a garlic-a-holic) (50 cents a clove!)
Brown the burger with the garlic…………….drain……….add cream of mushroom soup and as much sour cream as you like. I probably put about half a container in – we LOVE sour cream and it mixes well with the soup…….also, you MIGHT need to add a little bit of milk to thin the “sauce” down to make it the consistency you like!!
Cook the noodles………………….add salt and pepper to taste for the sauce………and MAN OH MAN IS THIS DELICIOUS AND INEXPENSIVE!
There you have it!
A double blog – TWICE as much
Sammy as you thought you’d get!
