Shopping Around The World…March Edition

This month Phenny from Easy Blog  is offering Shopping Around The World for Bacon of Piglove blog.  Aside from putting down the prices we are suppose to make up a delicious sweet and tasty dessert.                                                                       

We decided to do one of our more challenging pies with our friends. We are not a dessert family unless we buy it. Then look out we can gobble down sweets like your average turkey.  Our pie is Key Lime Pie and it is delicious.

All items purchased at The Real Canadian Superstore.

You will need a graham cracker pie crust.

A 9 inch graham cracker pie crust is $3.48                                                                                

A box of Key Lime Pudding

A 25 gram box  $3.97                                                                               

Two eggs

a dozen large eggs $2.25 so 2 eggs will be $0.40                                                                

Can of Whipping Cream…light  hehe

225 grams $3.52                                                                                 

There….you are armed and dangerous.  I’m just supervising mom to see how she messes up. MOL

INSTRUCTIONS:

1/ First we take the pie shell and brush the two egg whites that have been whisked together on the inside of the crust.   Then put the crust into a preheated oven at 350F for five minutes

.

2/  Take the Key Lime pudding and mix according to the recipe.  You will be using your left over yolks here.  Follow the recipe on the package of pudding.  After making the pudding wait for a few minutes to see if it is thickening.

3/  Meanwhile your pie crust is ready and you should cool it off while your pudding is thickening.

4/  Pour your key lime pudding into the graham cracker pie crust when both are cool.                                                                                
5/ Refrigerate the pie and filling for 2 hours.                                                                     Ta Da…done.  Enjoy!

A nice decoration on the Key Lime Pie is a sprig of nip or a small duck that quacks out the virtues of sweets.

May your pie not have a fur coat but
if it does braid the fur and chow down.                                                                       

 

Snow, Snow Everywhere

 

Did it snow yesterday?  Holy Cow Kitty, did it snow!  I would just walk out the door and want right back in.  I’m getting annoyed at Cow Kitty cause he comes over and digs a hole in the snow and poohs on our back lawn.  This is gross!  Come spring there will be Cow Kitty deposits all over the lawn.

snowfallingzmKali and I thought this picture would be better than watching Cow Kitty go to the bathroom.  This picture doesn’t really show the volume of snow Shoks.  Find another.  You’re right Kali. the snow builds up on the fence and falls off.

This one gives you the idea of the volume after the snowfall.  This is the view from our dining room window.  It looks cold around here. MOL                                                   snowzm

I did say I would show you our new lawn ornament.  Dad out did himself.  We have Candy Cane lights around the railing but *sigh* they are dying and there are no more to be found in this town.  So dad has stretched them out….ya, it looks silly but what’s a dad to do?

Ta Da….here is the front lawn with our new sleigh!                                                                    decorationszmI know we need lots more decorations but they are costly and we don’t live far from Da (real) Hood.  The roughest part of town.  Every morning mom checks to make sure the sleigh is still in position.  Maybe the residents of Da Hood will respect each other during this special season and leave our sleigh be.

Kali has adopted her place  ‘neth the Christmas Tree….new word!  You heard it here first!

DSC_0814hehe…notice Kali is lying on one of her Christmas presents….she’s claimed it and I’m not allowed on it…..we’ll see about that Kali.

I was laying on the back of the Love Seat watching Kali get comfy when dad clicked me before I had a chance to close my eyes.                                                             shokszmcrophaha….what a scary look I have!  I’d scare the spots off Cow Kitty. MOL  In my defence I was taken off guard and my look is more…”What do you want and get outta my face.”  A true *Cat From Hell pose.*

Now one of our poses will be on The Cat On my Head’s Selfie Sunday but Kali and I must discuss who gets the honours this week.

Tomorrow you will see the winner.donechrispmouse

I WON!  My picture is in The Cat On My Head’s Sunday Selfie.  Simply click here and be whisked off to view all the other Anipals and me too.
