SHOPPING Reminder!

Standard

Getting Ready To Shop?

This is just a bit of a reminder that we (One Spoiled Cat) are going to be hosting Bacon’s SHOPPING AROUND THE WORLD again this month……………Shopping Day will be Friday, September 29th this month AND what we’re going to be sharing recipes/prices for is one of our most-est favorite-est things (at least it’s certainly our humans’ most faves) – do you remember what it is????

DESSERTS!

Yep!   That’s right – on the 29th you will write your Shopping Around The World Post and give everyone a recipe for a delightful dessert you know and love and that the rest of us can try out!    Part of the deal is giving not just the RECIPE and instructions, but also to tell us what PRICE you paid for all the ingredients.   That way we can either GIGGLE or CRY at the difference in prices where all of us live in the world and do our shopping!    It’s fun to see!   Trust me.

So, make sure and remind your humans because the 29th will be here before you know.   REMEMBER TO  LINK YOUR SHOPPING BLOG POST TO OUR PAL BACON AT PIGLOVE because he loves to read recipes – AND after all, he’s the KING OF SHOPPING anyway – we’re just substitutes!    Next month it will be back in his capable hooves.

Desserts – far as the eye can see!   Speaking of SEEING – SEE you on the 29th.

HELP!!!!!!! I can’t get UP!!!!

Love, Teddy

Shopping Around The World!

Standard

Hello!   Two posts from me in one day?  Well, stranger things have happened!    I wanted to pawticipate in my Cousin Bacon and Fozziemum’s “Shopping Around The World” blog hop because I do think it’s interesting to see how DIFFERENT prices of the same stuff can be in different parts of the world.

For my part, this is what the shopping list (popcorn, beer/wine, chocolates/ice cream and random item of my choice) came to when Mom checked the items out in our stores here in Warrenton, Virginia!

1.  POPCORN – my Mom and Dad don’t have it that often but when they do, it’s microwave popcorn…..I like to steal a piece of it from Mom’s bowl and push it all over the living room until it starts falling apart.  I don’t EAT it – I just play with it!

BACONSHOPPINGPOPCORNGood old Orville Redenbacher………………….a three-pack for $3.49

2.  BEER/WINE – well of course I don’t “indulge” but my Mom and Dad have been known to have a brewski (Dad) or glass of wine (Mom) once in a while.  My Dad is the KING OF BREWSKIS though and his favorite is often on sale so Mom gets it for him as a treat (I prefer kitty treats myself)!   My Dad had Warsteiner for the first time when he and Mom were on a river cruise in Germany…….it was on tap on the boat – the bottled stuff is good but not QUITE as good as on tap!

BACONSHOPPING2Dad’s Favorite – Six-pack $8.99

3.  CHOCOLATES – oh dearie me – now this is one of those things that sends my Mom into orbit because she is a self-professed chocoholic.  She loves the stuff……maybe more than she should.  Santa Paws brings her a BIG box of Godiva chocolates every year (or else Mom will write him a nasty letter).   If not Godiva, she likes Ghirardelli!

BACONCHOCOLATE  Watch out candy aisle……my Mom coming through!!!!     $2.69 for 3.50 oz. bar

4.  ICE CREAM – this is another thing that we don’t often have in our house.  WHAT????  NO ICE CREAM????  I know…sinful isn’t it?  And I’m sure “the kitty/me” would enjoy a lick or two or three of ice cream once in a while but do we have it here?  Rarely!   If we DO, it’s gotta be Breyers Cherry Vanilla though!

BACONICECREAM$5.99

5.  RANDOM ITEM – our “random” is one of those things Mom keeps two or three of in our basement freezer for those nights when she just plain does NOT feel like making dinner.  Where would the world be without frozen pizza?  I don’t know and I don’t WANNA know!   Thanks DiGiorno for feeding my parents from time to time!

BACONPIZZA$5.99  (say…….if this is the same price as the ice cream – I vote for the ICE CREAM instead of the PIZZA!!!!!)

So that’s my shopping list for this time around………………..

Hugs,

Sam (who prefers yogurt)
