Let’s Do Some Filling In!!
Today is Friday which means BLOG HOP time with our co-hosts Ellen of 15andMeowing and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader with their “fill in the sentence” Hop. What a great way to get to know your friends right? At my house though sometimes Mom fills in the sentences, sometimes I do, and sometimes we BOTH do…………today Mom said I could do it ALL BY MYSELF!
If you’d like to join in the fun – click the badge above and go to Annie’s blog – use the LINKY tool she provides and WHAM BAM HOWDY SAM you’re part of the Hop……………My fill-ins are in RED today.
1.The flu shot is one shot that I do NOT have to have since I’m a CAT – besides I get plenty of other shots because I AM a cat so it balances out!.
2. I think everyone should take their pet for a walk at least once daily.
3. I (almost) always wait for a passer by to ask them to put me on the bathroom counter for a sink drink, because I won’t go up on the counter myself.
4. I (almost) never eat wet cat food because apparently wherever I lived my first year of life didn’t feed it to me so I only like kibble stuff.
About #4 above – my Mom has tried every possible type of wet food that there is and I absolutely won’t go beyond one or two licks of ANY OF IT. Wherever I was before I was adopted they apparently only gave me water from a faucet and only gave me kibble to eat. Mom has tried now for a year to get me to change those habits but I’m being ONE STUBBORN GUY!
No that’s not a photo of me – I’m much cuter (!) – but I am very stubborn. BUT – so is my Mom so I’m sure the “FOOD WARS” will continue. She would rather I eat raw or wet and knowing her, this is a battle that could go on for a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOG time!
Happy Friday everybody! Tomorrow I’ll be cooking up some kind of bacon THING in my Castle Kitchen at Castle Baconia………..so I hope to see you then!
Now – let’s SHOP for Bacon’s Shopping Around The World Hop!
Even though tomorrow is my bacon day – TODAY is SHOPPING AROUND THE WORLD with our friend Bacon so you won’t have to wait until tomorrow to get a recipe from me!!
Each month Bacon gives us a chance to share a recipe for something different – this month happens that he chose SANDWICHES as the subject of our recipe/information exchange and I am the KING of SAMMMICHES. Of course I HAD to use bacon in my recipe contribution this month – but at least it’s a little bit different from the usual…………may I present:
Teddy’s Bacon, Cheese and Jalapeno Grilled Sandwich
Now the idea is that we share a recipe, give ingredients AND the costs of said ingredients so all of us will know what each other pays for the same stuff – wherever we might live! That makes it more fun……!
8 slices of bacon (Harris Teeter Smoked Bacon, 16 0z. $4.49)
1/2 jalapeño chile, finely chopped ($.29 each)
1/4 cup butter, softened (we had already)
8 slices country-style bread (Harris Teeter “Old Fashioned” bread – $.99)
12 oz sharp Cheddar cheese, sliced (Cabot EXTRA sharp cheddar cheese 8 oz. $3.99)
This recipe is for making FOUR sandwiches but obviously you just “tailor” it to your needs – I personally could eat all four of these myself without sharing. HAHAHAHAHA
To make the sandwiches all you do is cook bacon over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove from skillet to paper towel. Add chile to bacon drippings in skillet; cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes. Place chile on paper towel. Then just spread butter on both sides of each slice of bread. Top each of 4 bread slices with layer of cheese, chopped chile, 2 slices of bacon and another layer of cheese. Cover each with second slice of bread. To finish the sandwiches up, heat 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook sandwiches until bread is browned and cheese begins to melt. Turn sandwiches; cook until cheese is completely melted.
Talk about yummy – I take care of eating some extra bacon while Mom and Dad eat the sandwiches and sometimes have a cup of tomato soup with them………….everyone wins!!!!
Thanks Bacon for letting us all share prices, ingredients and recipes every month. I can’t wait to see what our project is next month!
Lotsa Love, Teddy
Gettin’ Ready for Tomorrow!!!!
