SHOPPINGAROUNDTHEWORLD

Time to Shop for FOOD!

That’s right – it’s that day of the month for the Shopping Around the World post – a chance for us to share what stuff costs in our area of the universe…..a fun exercise hosted by our buds Fozziemum AND Bacon!

This month’s recipe is for a salad – any salad – and salads are PURRRRFECT meals in the summer when you don’t want some big old heavy meal in your tummy.    I’m not much of a salad guy but my parents enjoy a nice COOOOOL salad in summer.

One of Mom’s faves is a nice SIMPLE  shrimp salad………………….and when I say simple, I mean SIMPLE!

SHRIMPSALAD

Ingredients:

Package of cooked shrimp – 12 oz. $8.99 (remove shell from tails of course!)

One head romaine lettuce – torn into bite size pieces – $1.99

One chopped red bell pepper – $2.49 Each (yes that’s a lot for ONE bell pepper!!!!)

One stalk chopped celery – one bunch of celery $1.99

One chopped cucumber – $.50 each

Mayonnaise to hold it all together!  – 8 oz. jar Hellmann’s Mayo – $2.99

 

Yeah it’s pretty basic but it’s also pretty good (so says Mom)……………..it all gets mixed together in a bowl (except for the lettuce) and Mom adds just enough mayo to coat everything then dumps it on top of the lettuce……….the above recipe is enough for Mom and Dad.   I get a can of Fancy Feast Tuna BUT I also get THREE (yes THREE) of those delightful shrimp Mom has in the salad BEFORE they get mayonnaise on them…….I like mine PLAIN please!

Now we’re gonna visit

everyone else to see what

THEY’RE making in the kitchen today!
