Shopping Around The World in June

Hot weather, walks on me’s leash and a cool supper is me’s idea of living life to the max.  Treats too of course. On with why I’s here imposing on your life.  It’s the end of the month and that’s time for Shopping Around the World with Bacon.                                                                       

June’s dish is something easy for the summer months. Easy Peasy is mom’s middle name. Her first name is Geezy. mol *hic*

Shoko, do you’s want to help me’s? No, you will do great. You’re growing up Tyebe so it’s time you introduced others to the thrill of mom’s meals. mol *gag me with a paw*

Our dish for today will be Greek Pasta Salad. It is basically a greek salad with pasta in it.                                                                    Yep, everything smells fresh, mom. We’re ready to go.

Yes sir, bow ties are al dente.


1 and 1/2cups pasta (rotini, bow ties, penne)                                                            


1/4 to 1/2 of a Long English Cucumber or a small English cucumber.                                                                              
Mom got a small long English cucumber from the greenhouse so no charge.
4 small tomatoes (Roma) or any kind. We are using Roma tomatoes as they were on sale.

These red guys were $2.97 for 4.

1/4 to1/2 of a green and red bell pepper.

 The green pepper were sitting in the greenhouse and the red one mom bought at Real Canadian Superstore for $2.97.  I’s thought the red pepper was more colourful than the green so me’s only showing the red.

Kalamata Olives, you’s choose the amount you want.                                                                 
$5.50 for a 100 ml. jar

1/2 cup of feta cheese, cubed

$7.48 for 100 grams.

1/4 cup of red onion or more if you’s really like onion.

$1.20 each

Newman’s Own Greek with Feta Salad Dressing

$3.38 for 350 ml.


  1.  Cook pasta al dente according to package directions.  Rinse under cold water.

  2.  Combine all chopped ingredients in a large bowl.  Add dressing and toss.

  3. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.  Here is our Greek Pasta Salad all ready to refrigerate for 2 hours.                                                             

Enjoy me’s friends. Tyebe signing off till next time.

      I must ask what stupid thing did your mom do? Our mom is doing stupid things all the time. It’s nice to know we aren’t the only ones with a clueless mom. hehe

      Mom and dad really liked it, Scout Charles. Course, we’re Canucks and our tastes run to the cool. mol *hic* Sisfur Shokos is catching bugs outside. She did say that her, Pete H and Teddy are having brunch by the campfire at scouts on Sunday. The brunch is called, “You want me to eat what.” It should be fun.
