Shopping Around The World

Standard

NO!  This is NOT the Teaser post – – – it’s coming – – – soon!

It’s Shopping Around The World with Bacon

It’s that time of the month…………..where we share recipes for something YUMMY and talk about how much it cost to MAKE the recipe so we can compare prices!   We also get some pretty fantabulous new recipes to try out from all over the world so it’s tons of fun.

This month’s “project” was to find something yummy that our humans make for these hot summer days……something maybe to take the edge off the heat or some “light” eating maybe.   Well my Mom says nothing speaks “light” eating like a cool salad and one of her most favorites is an ENDIVE SALAD.

Endive Salad with Blue Cheese and Walnuts
Serves 2 to 3 as an appetizer

1/2 cup walnuts (or pecans)    (Price for 2-1/4 oz. package $3.99)
2 tablespoons olive oil (we have on hand ALWAYS)
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar  (Price for 12 oz. bottle $2.99)
salt, freshly ground pepper to taste  (we have on hand ALWAYS)
2 [or 3] largish heads Belgian endive   (Price for ONE endive seventy-five cents)
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese  (Price for 4 oz. package $3.99)

There are a billion recipes out there for all kinds of combinations – you can add apples, or pears, or pomegranates or all manner of fruit……………..but the one above is my Mom’s favorite.

After you arrange your endive on the plate, sprinkle the blue cheese (or gorgonzola if you prefer) on top, add chopped nuts, then combine the oliver oil, balsamic and pepper together and drizzle over top.  EASY PEASY but yummy.

That’s Mom’s favorite summer meal………….she makes quite a LARGE portion for herself but so what – it’s SUMMER!   HAVE FUN right?

 

My favorite Summer Salad is eating grass but sometimes that’s hard to find outside in our yard……………we have a huge yard but our grass is sad.   We’re working on it though – then I can have an endless all you can eat salad for myself!

We linked up to our SHOPPING host using his blog badge above – to visit Bacon, pop on over by clicking the badge!

Pre-Teaser Monday

Standard

Good Morning!

Yep – it sure is.   Time to prepare for tomorrow’s BIG TEST – will you know it or not?   Time will tell………………….first off let me say we have a GUEST TEASER tomorrow.   A photo from someone who enjoys trying to come up with a stumper for this class as much as WE do.    When you get here tomorrow, remember, first thing is to COMMENT!    If you’re first to comment you get a badge – simple as that!

THEN, we will show you the photo and you’ll have a chance to study it and figure out what town/city/village AND what state (if USA) or country (if not in the USA) the picture was taken in!   Got it?   Easy?  Well, maybe not…….after all, last week we fooled everyone!    Let’s see what happens this week shall we?

We’re ALL gonna study Professor Sammy – HONEST!

I thought you might appreciate hearing from Suzie today just to get you primed and ready for tomorrow…………of course sometimes she gets people TOO primed but let’s see what kind of mood she is in today!

Study buddies workin’ hard
Learning stuff, not playing cards!
Reading books not playing games…..
We wanna WIN
Not hang our heads in shame!
Up all night we’re learning quicker
Staying away from Daddy’s liquor!
Tuesday morning bright and early
In a good mood and NEVER surly
Just be here in time for class
Or Professor Sammy might kick your……cheeseburger.
HAHAHAHAHA

Thank you Suzie…………….sort of.

Now, remember please that we will have our TEASER TUESDAY post go live tomorrow morning at some time that you do not know ahead of time so BE ALERT……………….

Yep – like that!!!!!

We want you to be ready to win a badge for FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, RIGHT GUESSER or even the old GREENIE but whatever you do be here OK?    OK!   Miss Dingleberry might have some kind of special treat for after class/recess time – you never know.

Until tomorrow……………Prof Angel Sammy and Assistant Prof Ted!!

 

 

Sunday Selfie

Standard

Spacey Sunday Selfie!

That’s me – Mom and Dad both think sometimes I just HAD to have been brought here from some other planet – like a little alien – because I really do act so silly sometimes but I just like to hear them laugh………nothing wrong with that right?   Anyway, I was acting silly again with my red kitty cube and Mom got this shot of me so if she’s thinking I may be an alien, I might as well look like I’m in outer space.    This was a Lunapic filter – “Spacey”………you know how Mom and I like Lunapic!

We are joining up with the Kitties Blue at The Cat On My Head for their wonderful Sunday Selfie Blog Hop – if you’d like to join in the fun, click on their badge and use the Linky tool and show off your own selfie – AND visit everyone else who has done one as well!

Happy Sunday!  Love, Teddy

 

Bacon !!

Standard

Greetings Residents of the Kingdom of Baconia!

It’s Saturday and you know what THAT means…………….we will honor the nectar of the gods – well, not nectar because that’s a drink – it’s more a FOOD of the gods…..yeah – that’s what it is a FOOD!

Bacon!

Piles of it………….everywhere – as far as the eye can see………….and that’s what we celebrate here on Saturdays so are you ready?   Are you?

It makes EVERYONE happy right?????

I thought we’d start with dessert!

Yep – I love dessert so this is what I’ll look like in a few months…….

Oh why not!   We deserve something other than orange juice for breakfast once in a while right?

Bacon peanut brittle

Chocolate bacon baklava!

 

Then for our main course – MORE DESSERTS!!!!!!!!!!

Don’t be afraid – I haven’t gone off my nut – I’m just thinking once in a great while we should go nuts here in Baconia and fill up on SWEETS!   Spoil ourselves!

After all, I AM the KING………..and I get to do what I wanna do!    Eat up!

Not in MY Kingdom!!!!!!  Enjoy your bacon feast and I’ll see you next Saturday my friends!

Remember, Angel Sammy is watching you – he would want you to fight for your right to BACON!

Friendly Fill-Ins on Friday

Standard

Happy Friday!

It’s time to do some “filling in” on the Friendly Fill-Ins Hop

This is a fun hop co-hosted by McGuffy’s Reader and 15andMeowing and we join up every Friday to share fun facts about ourselves or our humans………it’s fun!  You should try it – and if you’d like to just click on the badge below and use the Linky tool there to “hook up” and do some filling in with us.

 

This week’s sentences are below and my Mom’s fill-ins are in RED (yes I thought I’d give her a break and let HER fill-in today – aren’t I just plain SWEET????).

1. As a child, my favorite playground activity was swinging on the swings – I loved it – it was like flying.

2. For breakfast, I have my own homemade biscotti and coffee.

3. An instrument I would like to play is the piano – I took lessons for three years when I was little but lost interest – I sometimes still dream that I’m in a recital and am very nervous.

4. I always try to smile, because smiles are infectious – when someone sees MY smile – they almost ALWAYS smile back.
OK Mom thanks a bunch.    When I saw the sentences I knew I wouldn’t be able to answer them – especially since I never played on a playground as a child !!  Tee Hee
Tomorrow is going to be another Bacon Caturday……….will you be here to enjoy some bacon fun with me?   I hope so – you’re welcome to stop by you know.  Everyone is invited.

In the past week I have been one lucky little guy – why?   Well because I’ve won TWO totally cool things from other blogs I follow!     One totally cool thing was a Drinkwell Fountain from my buddies at The Island Cats!

The other cool thing is a book about cats which I won from Cat Chat with Caren and Cody………….Am I lucky or what?

Thank You Both!   I am so excited!!!!!!

Love, Teddy
