It’s Time for Bacon and Fozziemum’s
SHOP TIL YOU DROP!
This month’s challenge was to make our FAVE sandwich (or as we call it here at my house SAMMICH!) and give the ingredients, recipe and costs of stuff!
We are a big sammmich family. My Mom and Dad have a regular-sized dinner every other day and on the between days they have sammmich night! They make lots of different sammiches but their big favorite is a BLT. I’m a fan of that too because when Mom makes, them I get some of the “B”! Since that’s a pretty easy and common sammich, I decided to combine TWO of their favorite easy to make sammiches in one post today so I’ll tell you about BLTs and “Loaded Tuna”………they are the biggies here.
The Pawsome BLT
Ingredients:Bacon (uh huh) – currently $2.97 for 12 oz. (Harris Teeter Brand) on sale!
Bread (yep gotta have that for a sammich) – currently $3.79 (Pepperidge Farm White Bread)
Mayo – always on hand in our refrig! Hellman’s 8 oz. $2.99
Tomatoes – $.37 each (Romas)
Lettuce – Romaine – package of 3 $1.99
Do I have to tell you how to make a BLT? Heck no – so I’ll just say this is a BIGGIE around my house………….
The Loaded Chicken Salad
Bread (of course!) – same as above
Swanson Canned White Meat Chicken – $3.49 12.5 oz.
Onion – chopped – Mom uses sweet onions and when she can get them, Vidalia onions!
Sweet pickle – chopped – Vlasic Sweet, 16 oz. $3.59
Mayo – as I said above – always on hand in our refrig!
Celery – chopped – for that extra crunch! $1.99 a bunch
AND the TOP SECRET (no longer) INGREDIENT???????? Curry powder! (1 oz. McCormick Curry $4.99) That’s right – curry – adds some zip to the chicken salad and my parents love curry – obviously this is an optional item and only weirdos like my parents would put curry powder (preferably madras which is the hot stuff) in their chicken salad but I’m told (cuz I haven’t had it) it’s delish.
So there you have it – another monthly adventure in food brought to you by Bacon and Fozziemum…………..you should share your recipes and prices every month when Bacon does his SHOP TIL YOU DROP post – it’s a monthly favorite for us – amazing what things cost around the world AND you can collect some swell recipes too!
Happy Shopping (and eating!)
