Shopping Around the World


Here it is just about the end of October and time for another Shopping Around the World.  Bacon of Piglove started Shopping Around the World so we will loop back to him.  Mom said I could help with this edition of SATW.  So I’m here to explain what mom has accomplished.

First she went shopping with dad.  I had to stay home because I would have sung, in a high pitched voice, all the way to Superstore, run and hid in Superstore and then sung, in a high pitched voice, all the way home.  Mom thought we all should be spared this thrill.

Mom decided to make Stuffed Mushrooms as her appetizer for this SATW so I won’t tell you everything else she bought.  She tends to get very creative ideas at the grocery store and insists on trying new items..  Meanwhile dad has disowned her and walked away as she’s talking to no one in particular how delicious this food would be.  Sorry, getting off the subject here.

Here are the ingredients purchased from The Real Canadian Superstore:

1 Red Pepper…….$1.90……  used 1/3rd of pepper

Italian Seasoning…140 grams bottle…….  $5.49……used 1 tablespoon

Mushrooms…………….20……$5.20….used all of them

Philadelphia Creamed Cheese..80z bar…..$4.37………used it all

Green Onions…………………………$0.77….used 1 onion

Shredded Parmesan Cheese……140 grams…..$5.98…..used 1 tablespoon

Bread Crumbs……$2.40 for 24 oz…….used 3 tablespoons

This recipe mom says is fairly easy.  The ingredients are not cheap but a treat occasionally.

To start off….wash your mushrooms.  We have 20 big mushrooms.  Remove the stems and set them aside for another dish.  Warm your parmesan cheese….woops, I mean warm your creamed cheese to room temperature.  Use a medium sized bowl for the ingredients.  Put parmesan cheese, 1 finely chopped green onion and 1/3rd finely chopped red pepper into a bowl.

Make those onion and red peppers small then you won’t have to precook them.

Now, into this mess add a tablespoon of Shredded Parmesan Cheese and depending how thick the mess is, add breadcrumbs.  Mom added a tablespoon of butter and found it too runny so added 2 tablespoon of herbed bread crumbs.  Add your Italian Seasoning…..a tablespoon of the Italian Seasoning.  Your mess should be thick, like I mean real thick so it sticks to the spoon and you have to scrape the mixture off the spoon to get it in the mushroom.  A big glob is the technical term.

Now fill those mushroom caps.

These wee guys are all ready to go into the oven at 400F for 15 minutes or until heated all the way through.

Done!!  These caps are delicious and a real treat.

Bony Pet Eats!

    My Mom and Dad LOVE stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer….in fact they probably could have them as an entire MEAL because they STUFF themselves with these whenever they are around them! This is a good/easy recipe too. Thanks to your Mom for the info…….and for the record, my Mom can go to the store for ONE THING and come home with BAGS full of stuff. Your Mom is not the only one with this problem!

    Hugs, Sammy

      Mom and dad DID have some mushrooms for supper and a few Spring Rolls from Costco. A very easy supper for them. Tomorrow mom makes her first chicken pie. She has used a stewing fowl…that bird has been cooked and is waiting in the fridge.

    TW loves stuffed ‘shrooms but has never made them herself. The price of cream cheese is so expensive. TW buys it on sale or at the big box store where she can get two 16-oz tubs for under $7. Good job by your Mom. BTW, if she buys the Italian flavored bread crumbs, she might not need the seasoning.

      Isn’t creamed cheese a disgusting price….I could get 2 Yeow! little fishes for that. @ 16oz tubs for $7…wow..that is excellent. Can we freeze creamed cheese? I don’t think mom and dad could eat all that in 6 months even. Mom bought Wal-mart’s Aurora Italian Style Bread Crumbs but she wanted more Italian flavouring. Go figure.

    Granny’s mouth is still watering after the visit to Bacon. We have no idea where we can find mushrooms so big as yours, but we’ll go and searching for it for sure, or use 40 of smaller ones 😀 Pawkisses for a Happy Meal 🙂 ❤



We love mewing with you my friend so pull up a cushion and let's chatter like the squirrels.
