What a grand Teaser we had this week right?  Right?  I think so too!   Before we get to it, I want to thank my fabulous GUEST TEASER, Miss Jackie and my pal Flynn from TwoDevonCats Blog for sending in the amazing photo which Flynn’s Mom took on a cruise!   This photo was actually taken with a long lens from the cruise ship…….BUT FIRST – here’s the photo one more time:

Oh what fun we had with the guesses……”golf ball factory”, “ping pong ball factory” and “egg in a bird nest” were my three faves!  Tee Hee   Where was it actually taken?   North Cape (Nordkapp), Norway at the visitor center – it’s the observation deck there on the island.   Here are two photos Miss Jackie sent me to show you for the Tell All:

A great photo of the Visitor Center

YOUR FAVORITE TEASE, Sammy

 

Telling All, Shopping and Dominating

60

 

HA!   That’s some title for my blog today isn’t it?   Wanna know why?   Well, it’s because today is a TRIPLE FUN day.   First, it’s Bacon and Fozziemum’s monthly Shopping Around the World blog hop day, and secondly, Summer is celebrating World Cat Domination Day and of course what would Wednesday be without my Teaser Tell All!   Triple fun today like I said yes?

Let’s start off with shopping shall we?

SHOPPINGAROUNDTHEWORLD

Our assignment this month was to price FIVE items from two different stores  to do a price comparison – and using those five items (at least  that many items but could be more) make a meal.   Recipe optional!    Mom decided to go to  two of the four grocery stores in our town – Harris Teeter and Giant to price her items.   What do these items make in the way of a recipe?   One of my Dad’s FAVES – hamburger stroganoff!   Ready?

Harris Teeter (HT)  Giant (G)

1 lb. hamburger

SHOPPING1

HT = $4.99 (80% Angus Lean Ground Chuck)

G= $5.99 (90% Lean Ground Chuck)

Sour Cream

SHOPPING2

HT = 8 0z. $1.79

G = 8 oz. $1.69

Can of Cream of Mushroom Soup

SHOPPING5

HT= 10.5 oz. $.97

G = 10.5 oz. $.97

Flat Noodles

SHOPPING4

HT = Muellers Hearty Extra Wide 8 0z.  $1.79

G = Muellers Hearty Extra Wide 8 oz. $1.79

Onions

SHOPPING3

HT = One Vidalia onion $.37

G = One Vidalia onion $.37

SO – the prices were very comparable………they would need to be – these stores are a block away from each other and competition is fierce.   Anyway, these ingredients plus a few other “accompaniments” make excellent (and easy peasy) HAMBURGER STROGANOFF!

Brown the burger with some chopped onions (as much as you like) and if you want to add a clove of crushed garlic that makes it even better (optional!).   Meanwhile, boil the noodles and drain.   Add one can of Cream of Mushroom Soup to the cooked hamburger…….then as much sour cream as you want to add (Mom adds about half a container) – mix well and add a tiny bit of milk to make it the consistency you like.  We like ours kind of “thick” (sticks to the noodles better!!).    Serve the “stroganoff” over the noodles and VOILA – excellent dinner.   Add salt and pepper to taste!

That was fun this month – well, it’s ALWAYS fun now isn’t it?  You should pawticipate if you don’t already…………you can see the other posts by visiting BACON HERE !!

NEXT ITEM OF BUSINESS TODAY WILL BE THE TEASER TELL ALL!!!!!

Yesterday’s photo was a Guest Teaser…………..and I honestly thought there was a good chance that NOBODY would guess it but I was OH SO WRONG!    First things first – here’s the photo:

TeaserJune23-2015

Who was my Guest Teaser?  Why it was my buddy Flynn’s Mom Miss Jackie!   She sent me this photo which had NOT been published on her blog and which she’d looked at closely for “hints” so we thought it was going to fool everyone – especially with a Burger King right there!   Thank you Miss Jackie and Flynn………..this is for you!

Thanks Jackie and Flynn!

Thanks Jackie and Flynn!

The photo was taken on the street in STAVENGER, NORWAY………………Burger Kings are everywhere apparently!

Who was my FIRST COMMENTER?  Well, it just happened to be the same friend who was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER……………..I absolutely cannot believe that this blogger has such an uncanny  ability to know where photos were taken – ones that aren’t on the internet to google and find – just knowing some landmarks or having traveled (or read up ahead of Teaser Tuesday) and he is the AMAZING EASY!   These awards are BOTH for you my geography whiz kid buddy!

Others who guessed it right?  Yes there were some………and you all get this:

TEASERBADGE2015-2

Then of course we have the friends who absolutely are GREEEN with envy………..or are using these to paper the walls of their homes from top to bottom  as GREEEEEN wallpaper!   This is for all of you!

TEASERBADGE2015-3

WOW……………. amazing huh?   Keep on trying everyone – one of these days Easy will be out on a walk when the Teaser goes live and won’t be first.   HAHAHAHAHA

WORLD CAT DOMINATION DAY

This day was started by Angel Sparkle – Summer’s sister, at Sparkle Cat.   We’re celebrating the fact that we rule our homes – something those of us who have been around a while know to be TOTALLY true!    Summer is having a special celebration of the day on HER blog so be sure to visit.   It began on Sparkle’s birthday so that makes it SUPER special for Summer to be hosting the event!   If you click the badge below, you’ll visit Sparkle’s special blog for today…………..

CatWorldDomination2015-250

CATS RULE………we know this!   All I have to do to remind Mom of that is hop up on her lap and keep her occupied while I snore and snooze away and keep her TRAPPED there even though the phone may ring, or someone may knock on the front door, or heaven forbid, she has to visit the bathroom (tee hee) – because she will NOT disturb me.   She will sit there until she explodes before she’ll push me off her lap………now if that isn’t domination I don’t know what is!    HAHAHAHA

Sleeping.........AGAIN!

So – enjoy  today – it’s a BUSY one isn’t it?

HUGS,

SAMMY

A little P.S.   I’m following a new blog with two ADORABLE little girl kitties – you might enjoy visiting them too??!  Their blog yesterday  had a link to that video that’s been “seen around the world” with the kitty who ACCIDENTALLY had a ride in an ultralite airplane in France!!!!
