Friday Shopping and Filling-In!

63

Another TWO Posts In One Day! 

Today, we will do our Shopping Around the World post first.

As you all know, Shopping Around The World was started by Bacon from Pig Love and Fozziemum and lately Bacon has had several blog buddies “Guest Host” this monthly event – we did it last month and this month is Da Phenny’s turn!     This month he chose desserts or sweet treats/comfort treats as the item we should share a recipe for – – something we LOVE to have in our tummy.   We are to share the recipe but more importantly, we tell what the ingredients cost – because it’s amazing to see the difference in prices “around the world” !!

My Mom remembered earlier this week that one of her absolutely ALL TIME favorite comfort foods was a dessert and one of the few that does NOT involve chocolate.    Her Mom used to make this ALL THE TIME and she made it years ago but had forgotten about it.    What are we talking about???

Banana Pudding with Vanilla Wafers

There are a million recipes for this delightful treat and many ingredients are optional for sure……….but one thing they almost ALL have in common is banana pudding mix, bananas and vanilla wafers!

The recipe my Mom makes could NOT be easier……………you can dress the top of this up with whipped cream but my Mom just puts a layer of wafers on top.   Prices in our store in RED.

Ingredients:

1 or 2 packages of banana instant pudding mix (you don’t have to use instant but it sure is EASY!) – one or two means whether you want a LARGE dessert or small!   Mom uses TWO packages.   ($1.19/box)

Milk ($1.49 for 2%, 64 oz.)

Fresh bananas ($.49/lb.)

Box of  Vanilla Wafers  ($2.99 a box)

Make the pudding according to the directions – my Mom usually puts SLIGHTLY less milk in than it calls for on the box…….makes it a bit thicker.    While it’s setting up, Mom puts a payer of vanilla wafers on the bottom of the container she’s going to fill with the mixture………..then whacks up 2 or 3 (or however many you want) bananas – thinnish slices and mixes them into the pudding mixture before she dumps the whole thing into the container with the wafers on bottom.    After you put the mixture in, add more bananas to the top or add more wafers to the top – or put whipped cream on top or WHATEVER you want to do to the top is good!

HOW EASY CAN IT GET right?   Pop it in the refrigerator and it is a banana-lovers’ dream.

NOW – shall we Fill-In sentences???

This is another weekly blog hop which we LOVE to do.   We love reading everyone else’s answers too – really find out some interesting stuff about our friends this way!!  Tee Hee   This Hop is co-hosted by our friends Miss Ellen at 15andMeowing and Miss Annie at McGuffy’sReader.   Click the badge above to go to McGuffy’s where you will find a LINKY TOOL and you can add a link to your blog where you can share YOUR fill-ins for the below sentences!    Miss Annie does two and Miss Ellen does two…………This week Teddy gets to fill in and his contributions to the sentences are in GREEN!

1. The first thing I think about in the morning is waking Mom up without waking Dad up so we can have quiet time together (and she can feed me!).
2. The last thing I think about before sleep is finding my white mousie because I always bring it to bed with me.
3. I am looking forward to Cat Scouts this weekend – we’re having a Derby Race with cars we’ve made out of cardboard boxes!  

4. I am so pleased that Angel Sammy is teaching me what I need to know to have a safe and happy life in my forever home.

Now that was FUN!    Another double post – we did one yesterday too………What’s on tap for tomorrow?    Well you know by now that it’s BACON SATURDAY and Teddy will again be the STAR – now that he’s taken over as KING OF BACONIA it will be HIS post tomorrow.    Of course I’ll help him if he needs me (wink).

The Ginger Boys………………

Love, Angel Sammy and Teddy too

 

Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday!

It’s Double Bubble Day!

Well actually I mean TWO posts for the price of one day…….

FIRST:

Today is Thankful Thursday over at Brian’s and if you click the above badge, you will go to his blog and if you’d like to tell the world what you are THANKFUL for, use the linky tool and join in the blog hop!    I’m THANKFUL that my brother Angel Sammy is still guiding me from the Rainbow Bridge – I’m sure it’s why I’m never getting in trouble – after all, I’m a kitten and kittens usually get in trouble right?  Not me – I’ve got AN ANGEL ON MY SHOULDER!

It’s also my brother Angel Sammy’s THOROUGHLY POETIC THURSDAY today:

Thanks Teddy! 

Today we celebrate the letter “P”

“Paws”

By Angel Sammy Kimmell, 3/30/17

A kitty’s paws can say so much

A claw in anger or a loving touch

Our paws don’t just move us from here to there

They can tell a human how much we care

We touch your leg when we’re at your feet

A reminder that we’re THERE and ready for treats!

We need our paws to climb a tree

Must keep an eye on the neighbors dog you see!

We need our paws to play with our toys

If we give them a poke they might make a noise!

Some cats have special paws like ME

We are equipped POLYDACTYLY !

There you have it everybody…………..our Thursday “Double Bubble” post!     If you have written a poem for “P” like my brother Angel Sammy, you can either write your poem in OUR comments here on OUR blog or you can give us your blog link where we can read your poem there…………either way – why not write a poem today for fun?

Tomorrow is Shopping Around The World being guest hosted by our buddy Da Phenny.    Remember to post your recipe for a dessert or special yummy treat and link to Da Phenny’s blog and also to Bacon (our usual host for “Shopping”)  !    Tomorrow is also Friendly Fill-In Friday at McGuffy’s Reader and 15and Meowing – lots of fun with this hop as we learn more about each other!

Big Teddy Hugs,

and one from Angel Sammy too!

The Scoop on the Teaser!

First of all thanks for helping us celebrate the 200th Teaser yesterday………it was great – we had lots of people stopping by just to wish us at least 200 more Teasers but also to PAR-TAY with us a bit and have a guess at the photo this week!

We tried to use a photo yesterday that would be TOUGH…………….we really did!    We had a Guest Teaser post and when we saw this photo we thought “that’s the one!”  – as it turned out, it was guessed correctly fairly quickly!   Oh well – maybe next week???

Here’s the photo from yesterday:

This is a rather interesting aerial view of the town of Brasov which is in the Transylvania region of Romania!   Just look at all those tiled roofs……and so many winding streets and courtyards.   We owe this photo to our friend Gracie of “Goodness Gracie” and SHE got it from a friend in Indianapolis, Indiana who has been here.   THANK YOU EVERYONE!   Here’s your badge of thanks!

For Gracie and her Friend for the Teaser of 3/28/17

I bet you wanna know WHO won all the special badges yesterday right?    Well, first of all we had a THREE WAY TIE for “FIRST COMMENTER” (that happens sometimes – we have lots of fast fingers trying to compete for first and as long as they all arrive in the first minute – they all win!).   Who:

Miss Csilla, Da Phenny, and Oliver and Calvin!

 

Next we have our “FIRST RIGHT GUESSER”……………………..and she was one of our FIRST COMMENTERS……………..Miss Csilla!

And we had SEVERAL others who guessed right too – all of YOU get this:

By now you know that even if you guess WRONG, you’re still a WINNER – and for all the WRONGIES, we have a GREENIE!

YAY!

Thanks for helping us celebrate
If you’re ready to guess – you’re WAY TOO LATE!
Miss Csilla won – she’s knows her stuff
Now don’t be jealous, don’t get in a huff!
Next week you might be first you see…..
Then maybe you’ll get a big KISS from me!
(OR NOT)

So we bring our 200th celebration of Teaser-hood to a close………………thanks everybody for making Tuesdays around here so much fun.    We will continue as long as you’re enjoying it – and as long as we have photos to share of course!

Tomorrow is Thankful Thursday at Brian’s and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday HERE.    Our letter to celebrate this week for a poem is the letter “P”.    Why not write a poem about something starting with “P” and join us????   It’s fun……….honest it is……….and you can spread your wings and try something NEW if you haven’t written a poem before………….

Class Dismissed until NEXT Week!

Teddy and I hope to see you NEXT week!!

 

Hugs, from Angel Prof Sam and Assistant Prof Ted

Teaser Tuesday #200

Welcome Class to Teaser #200!

Celebrating 200 Teasers and counting…..

Two hundred times we’ve had photos for you to guess and today we’ll celebrate that BUT FIRST – have you commented on this post yet?  You need to, because if you are the FIRST TO COMMENT, you will get this:

All the badges for today’s Teaser will have that “sticker” on them signifying that YOU won something for the 200th Teaser!   Anyway, hurry up and comment on this post then come back for the rest of class, the photos and the celebration……go ahead – we’ll wait for you…….

ALRIGHT TIME’S UP – GET BACK IN THE CLASSROOM – HOP TO IT!!

Today’s Teaser Photo is a GUEST TEASER as I told you yesterday.    I’m hoping it’s TOUGH……..Why?  Well it seems like for #200 we should be giving you a GOOD challenge right?   So I think maybe this is one but I’ve said that before and someone has guessed it in the first two minutes of class.   We’ll just hope for the best today right class?

“YES PROFESSOR SAMMY”

SuzieQ told me that she has BIG PLANS for today’s cheer so while part of me says “uhoh” the other part of me says “what the heck” so let’s bring on Suzie!

I’ve got my cheering posse’
We yell but we’re never bossy
Two hundred teasers is tons!
I’m tired of shakin’ my buns!
But I admit it’s quite a feat
Now tell me that I’m SWEET!
Ra Ra for the Prof and Ted
Now let’s hear from the girl in red!

Concats on all these Teasers
They’ve all been real crowd pleasers
This class is full of cuties
Some real good lookin’ patooties!
I’m available for a date
I’ll give students a special rate!

Whoa now ladies – let’s keep these cheers “appropriate” for my class please!!!

Let’s hear it for the TEAM
Now everybody SCREAM!
PROF SAM AND TED ARE COOL
They teach the golden rule
The rule says you have to play “nice”
And be good as sugar and spice
If we’re good we’ll get some cookies!
We’re not a bunch of rookies!

And our last cheerleader for today’s class:

I’m just too tired to jump
I’m just a ginger lump
Suzie made us TIRED
But we didn’t want to be FIRED
So now I’m just plain pooped
This knocked me for a loop!
Mind if I sit down – by Bobby the CLASS CLOWN!

Well Suzie thank you for bringing in the entire Cheering Squad…………I think that last young lady needs a NAP.

What say we get the Teaser posted now?    We’ve had some fun but it’s time to BUCKLE DOWN and get the Teaser rolling……………………let’s bring in our Silver Briefcase Guy then after that, we’ll have REFRESHMENTS to celebrate Ok?

Congratulations on 200 Teasers Professor – here’s the 200th one now!!

REMEMBER:  In order to be RIGHT with your guess today you must tell us in what CITY/VILLAGE/TOWN and in what STATE (if USA) or COUNTRY (if not USA) this photo was taken!  

If you are the FIRST to correctly guess where this photo was taken you will win this:

If you are RIGHT but not FIRST you get this:

AND, if you are WRONG with your guess, you get a GREENIE:

As you can see, all the badges for today have a special sticker on them because this is our 200th TEASER!

Now – shall we have some refreshments?    Who wants to stand up and tell us what kind of cookies you brought today?

My Mom made some “school” cookies Professor Sam!

My Mom made “bacon chocolate chip cookies” because I know you and Assistant Prof Teddy like those!

My Mom made “Teddy Bear Almond” cookies just for YOU Assistant Prof Teddy!

AND we have fruit smoothies and hot chocolate to go with it!   Everyone you may leave your desks and enjoy the snacks!

GOOD LUCK WITH THE TEASER CLASS!  

Thanks for making the last 199 Teasers fun – let’s go for 200 OK???

 

Pre-200th Teaser Monday

42

What?????    200 Teasers???  

Yeah…that’s right!

Can you believe it?   Tomorrow we will be posting our #200 Teaser…………200 fun photos that you’ve had to try and figure out – that’s a lot of figuring isn’t it?    Well class, we will have to sort of celebrate tomorrow right?

YES Professor Sammy – we should celebrate – I’ll get Mom to bake some cookies!

Me too Professor Sam – I’ll get my Mom to make some cookies too!

Well that’s nice class……………we’ll have cookies and hot chocolate after class is over tomorrow – how’s that???

Bobby make sure your Mom doesn’t put any WACKY WEED in those cookies! We will NOT tolerate that! Got it?

Oh SARGE – I’m sure Bobby’s mother would never do anything like that – in fact I’m disappointed you would even bring up a subject like that in class!   Anyway, where was I……oh yes.   We’ll have a little celebration but we will STILL have class so that means we will STILL have a photo that you will need to examine and study and figure out.    Also, please remember that whoever arrives here in class FIRST tomorrow and leaves a COMMENT on the Teaser blog will win a SPECIAL “First Commenter” badge!    In fact, all the badges will have “200th Teaser” on them so you know you will want one of those right?   Better be ON THE BALL tomorrow then.

It will be a GUEST TEASER photo…………………………………………

What?  You’re sad that it’s a GUEST Teaser?  They’re the MOST fun!!!!!  C’mon – get in the spirit!

Suzie – we need you to cheer everyone up………

C’mon class, let’s be HAPPY
200 Teasers is really quite snappy!
The Prof has worked hard to give you some FUN
Just think about all those badges that have been won!
It’s been way cool visiting all the places
Seeing the sights and
happy faces
So get a GRIP and give me a giggle…..
No tears or frowns like
a SOUR pickle!

Thanks SuzieQ!   That’s the spirit!

So remember, tomorrow’s post will pop up at some surprise time……………………….not at the usual time for the blog posts – a SURPRISE time.    Be alert………..be ready………….most of all BE AWAKE!

Don’t let us down class! 

You’re right Teddy – we want everyone to be tuned in tomorrow!  

See you in the morning……CLASS DISMISSED

One of my many “Nellie badges”…..thank you sweet Nellie!
