It’s Sunday and it’s the day of the week to post a Selfie. This, however, is not just ANY Sunday. Day before yesterday a lot of us lost one of our bestest friends – Raz from Friends Furever went to join his family and friends at the Rainbow Bridge. Raz had been not himself for quite a while and he fought a good fight to stay with his sisters and his Mom. He was such a good guy. Anyway, in honor of our friend – Angel Raz – we have a heartfelt message for him from Teddy. We already miss him like crazy. We know his Mom is terribly sad as are Raz’s sisters Noelle and Reesie. If you’d like to visit their blog and leave a message for his family, just click HERE.
Love Never Dies……….Hugs, Teddy
Happy Friday. Time to fill in the blanks with our co-hosts! If you’d like to fill in the blanks along with us and don’t have the sentences – click their badge above – the sentences are there. THEN you can go back after you’re finished and link up so everyone can see your words.
Here are the four sentences with blanks that we got from our co-hosts for this week! Mom and I shared filling in duty this week – Mom’s words are in TEAL and my words are in ORANGE. (TEDDY-ORANGE MOM-TEAL)
1. I am looking forward to _First Day Of Summer on the 21st of this month.
2. I am in need of yummy seafood in Maine when we go for vacation in October!
3. The big green chair in the guest room is my go-to for a really nice nap.
4. When the weather is nice, I don’t have to ASK to go outside – my Mom and Dad go out a LOT anyway so I tag along!.
Thanks to our co-hosts for this super duper fun weekly fill-in-the-blanks fun. You should join us if you don’t already!!
Mom and ME – the Dynamic Duo
Friends, Mom and I are praying for our dear friend Raz from Friends Furever – he’s not doing very well and needs our prayers – you can leave a message for him on his blog HERE.
Thank you…..the power of prayer can do wondrous things……….
Happy Monday. You know what Monday means – SPARKS! “SPARKS” was started by Annie McGuffy of McGuffy’s Reader but ended when she stopped blogging some time ago. It was meant to be a way to start out each week with with a meaningful thought – something that spoke to each of us and hopefully everyone else who read it. Although Annie isn’t currently blogging, a lot of us who enjoyed her SPARKS decided to keep posting SPARKS of our own.
I found two SPARKS to share today………they both say what I want to say on this day of remembering.
Remember……………and NEVER forget
Happy Sunday. You know what Sunday means – Hopping with The Cat On My Head for Sunday Selfies. Since tomorrow is Memorial Day and because Mom didn’t take a new photo of me this week – Mom and I decided we should let her Dad – my Grandpa – be the star of our Selfie today.
My Grandpa is no longer with us – and in fact I never got to meet him – nor did Angel Sammy. Grandpa went to the Human Bridge on October 23, 1992. His grave is at Arlington Cemetery. Many of you have seen photos of him before – with my Mom mostly – OR you’ve seen his high school graduation photo which my Mom has. Since it’s Memorial Day, we’re going to have Grandpa be the star of our show.

We also aren’t doing an artsy version of Grandpa. We just want to remember him this Memorial Day weekend…………………..Mom misses you Grandpa and I’m sorry I never got to meet you.
Hugs, Teddy and Mom
Bacon Day with King Teddy and our Guest Chef Raz
Yes indeed – one of my “frequent Guest Chefs” Raz is helping out today to make a recipe that he and his Mom sent to me so we can make it together, and share the recipe with lucky YOU!!! This just sounded so yummy we HAD to make it for you so you can enjoy it with your own family.
Bacon, Onion and Tomato Pie
A real Southern favorite!!!!
5 large tomatoes, peeled and sliced
4 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
1 sweet onion, sliced or chopped
1 1/2 c sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 c Ritz crackers, crushed
2 green onions (scallions), sliced
Tomatoes put off a lot of liquid naturally. If you want to avoid that, you can seed the tomatoes. Or, slice the tomatoes, place them on a paper towel with a little salt, and let the salt draw out some of the liquid.
Prick the pie shell with a fork. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Fry bacon. Cook till tender. Drain and set aside. Peel and slice tomatoes to fill the bottom of the pie shell. Sprinkle with chopped onion, salt, and pepper. Layer more tomatoes; salt and pepper (again).
Mix mayo, bacon, cheese, and milk. Spoon on top and pat down to cover tomatoes. Mix the crushed Ritz crackers and butter. Then spread on top of the pie.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle scallions on top.
Here’s what you wind up with – Incredibly delish dish!
A big THANK YOU to Guest Chef Raz and his Mom for the recipe and the assistance in the Castle Kitchen.
Happy Saturday – your King
