Shopping Around The World!!




Yes I know you’re not used to ME hosting “Shopping Around The World” rather than our buddy and pal Bacon BUTT I’m helping him and his Mom out this month – fun huh????   


Yes indeed it’s that time of the month again (no not THAT time but THIS time) and we’re going to ask you to do the usual thing – do your post and link back to ME (yep – ME this month) so we can not only see what your recipe is but hopefully see some photos of it AND see what the prices of the ingredients were.    After all, that’s the most fun (other than eating of course) – seeing what the prices around the world are for the ingredients!   It’s amazing to me what WE pay compared to YOU all.

So what are we gonna do for “Shopping” this month?    How about we focus on something just a bit different – let’s all do a recipe for a MAIN COURSE that has NO MEAT, CHICKEN, or FISH in it…….   Surely you have something you make that is a veggie type dish as a main course?   Lots of peeps these days are changing eating habits so there are a lot of great recipes that have no meat, chicken or fish in them but are delish main courses.    SO, let’s see what you can come up with.    Then post on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24th, and link your post on that day to ME!

If you don’t HAVE a recipe like that, find one you like and share it with US.   WE CAN DO THIS!    Just remember provide recipe, a photo if possible, AND prices for ingredients.    Oh boy – I can’t WAIT to see what you post!!!


Look familiar?????  Tee Hee


Happy Cooking!  See you on Feb. 24th! 

Love, Angel Chef Sam

  2. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh yes indeedy we have a tried and true vegetarian bean soup that mom has been making for at least 30 years. She found the recipe in Woman’s Day Mag. She used to make it every year for the annual NCSU departmental student’s ‘food from your country” event at Christmas. Hugs Madi your bfff


  3. Yes, of course I can do a veggie recipe. As long as I can use dairy and/or eggs all is well. Just when you ask me to go vegan I’m on strike. One of my most beloved dishes is vegetarian, no meat (chicken is meat, too), no fish – just four kinds of vegetables, a little flour, a little butter, a little milk and loads of cheese … Looking forward to it, that is my dinner on the 23rd planned (Well, to post it up on the 24th I have to buy the ingredients before and get cooking before …).


      • Veggies are great. I prefer to have veggie dishes where vegetables stand for themselves – and not “in place” of meat. I hate the idea of imitating meat dishes with vegetables (particularly tofu wiener) – if I want veggie, I want veggie, not the imitation of something else. If I want meat, I will have meat. So you can look forward to a dish with three vegetables and a cheese bechamel sauce. Gratiné. The magic word as my sister claims.


  4. We will be looking forward to everyone’s posts for this! The mom lady here is a vegetarian, so veggie main dishes are always something she is interested in hearing about!


  5. Mommy is making Egg and Dairy Free cookies for the Valentine Bake sale at work on Tuesday…purhaps she will let yous knows how that goes. Wes eats totally vegan one night a week at our house. Well Mommy and our roommate does. Mes is a CARNIVORE!!!


    • Nellie I was a major carnivore too – we can’t help it after all – we are jungle cats!!! Eating vegan is a whole lot more healthy for our humans though…..I’m sure your Mommy can find a totally fab recipe for this month’s “shopping” project!!!!

  6. We’re we ever confused. But we got it now Sammy. Sometimes we can be a little slow on da uptake. MOL We can’t wait to see what everypawdy’s payin’.

Big hugs to all. and we’re glad your pawrents are gettin’ their bacon. Big hugs fur all and stay warm and toasty.

    • Hi Dezi and Raena! Your Mommy doesn’t have to actually buy stuff for a recipe – just go online and most local grocery stores have websites where they show the prices of stuff. That’s what we do. Our grocery store tells us what everything costs on that day – so we copy that info into our post and Mom uses one of her favorite recipes to look stuff up online. EASY PEASY. So even if you don’t have money to buy the stuff it’s usually easy to find out how much stuff costs then use it for your recipe.

      Love and Hugs, Angel Sam

  7. We will try to remember to do this. Mom has been trying to make more vegetarian dishes most are epic fails but a few have been successful. We will try to give you one of the successful ones.


  8. Awesome cousin. Again, thank you so much for hosting this month. My mom/dad are like yours – meat eaters. Snorts with piggy laughter. However, dad worked out a great post for this month for your blog hop. It should be interesting and slightly humorous coming from the daddy as you can imagine. Can’t wait for the big day. Thanks buddy! XOXO – Bacon


  9. Hidey Ho Angel Chef Sammy we are ready ready ready for the 24th.
    Mom and I had a photo session in the bedroom. No she doesn’t cook in that but I was not in the mood to move to the kitchen. MOLMOL Our dish is cooking now in the crock pot. She will take the last photos of it when she dishes it up tonight.
    Hugs my Friend
    Madi your bfff


  10. Hmmm, too bad wes did not take pictures…
    For a work bake sale on Valentines Day, Mommy made NO Sugar, NO Dairy and NO Egg cookies with NO Sugar Carob chips! The veggans at work bought every single one of them and has asked when Mommy will makes more. Wes could has posted that recipe! Maybe next time.
    Can’t wait to see if I know where in the world yous will bes tomorrow Sammy!
    Your Nellie Bellie


    • Hi Dearest Nellie! Gosh those cookies sound REALLY yummy! Maybe your Mom has some other recipes she can think of to share for Bacon’s Shopping Day???? The Teaser is going to be popping up SOOOOON……I can’t wait to see how everyone does!

      Love and Angel Hugs, Sammy
