In Purrsuit of Flavours…Cinco de Mayo Theme

Let’s get out in the garden and see what mom and dad have accomplished.                                                 

Look, dad was hard at work separating the quack grass from the soil.

The soil is lovely and black. Needs manure mom. I think cattle manure would be best cause it has to produce cukes and peppers. So it needs some pretty skookum proteins.

You’re getting there, mom. Yeah, there is quite a bit more to be done.

Everyone is happily working here, Tyebe so let’s go inside and play in the box Mrs. Amazon sent us.

Have we got all the fixin’s for our drink for In Purrsuit of Flavours, Tyebe Mom picked up our supplies when she went grocery shopping.  Good, let’s get at it.

 Easy Blog and us are hosting In Purrsuit of Flavours. I wonder what Phenny and Nelly are cooking for Cinco de Mayo Day?

Wordless Wednesday or Wordy Wednesday at Comedy Plus is joining the fun here at ground 0.  Simply click on their name or badge and stop by,                                                        Now first of all our drink is called Mexican Meezer. It’s non-alcoholic but is great with some vodka or gin.  Tyebe will be the tester for this drink.  How does the mixture I did for you taste?  Yuck!!  Let’s leave the garlic out completely, Shoko.  It really has a bitter after-taste.  Ok, Tybes.  We have basic ingredients here of cranberry ginger ale, ginger beer, lemon from the plastic lemon, and lime from the plastic lime.

You drank all that cranberry ginger ale testing our Mexican Meezer?  The bottle’s much easier to move now,  It was pretty skookum at 2 litres.  I really needed to go tinkles a lot.

Measurements:

paw……….. ounce
whisker….. squirt
claw………. 1 leaf

Mexican Meezer

3 paws cranberry ginger ale
2 paws ginger beer
2 whiskers lemon juice
3 whiskers lime juice

Served in a wine glass with a blackberry on each side of the glass to resemble ears. Several claws of catnip on the side of the wine glass. If, your Mexican Meezer has too much of a bite to it, then try cutting back on the ginger beer.  Maybe try cutting back a 1/4 of a paw to start.

Shopping Around The World

ng-cartHere it is November already.  Piglove and Fozziemum started Shopping Around the World for us to compare prices in different countries.  Mom sits and is shocked by the cheap price of milk products in other countries.  Canada has a board that regulates the price of milk products so our prices are high my friends.  Now the Americans are celebrating their Thanksgiving shortly so we were asked to do a sidedish or dessert….something that would go with a turkey.  Well, we had our turkey in October but we could have this dish any day.

We did our shopping at The Great Canadian Superstore.

1 bulb of fresh garlic:……$0.50  using 1 clove $0.08

Philidelphia cream cheese: $2.98 using 1/4 of pkge. $0.74

3 old potatoes:     $2.30

Sprig of parsley:  $1.28 a bundle using 1 sprig..$0.10

dried rosemary:   free….grown in the garden

Total cost for this dish is $3.22

Rosemary Garlic Mashed Taters

First you peel those 3 potatoes and then boil them in a pot on the stove….not too high a temp or the water will boil all over like mom’s did.  Right, you wash the taters off first before boiling….seems like a waste of time to me cause any cwap is going to boil off anyway.  While the taters are doing their thing, wash off the sprig of parsley and the rosemary.  Grind the rosemary on a mortar with your wee pestle.  Shred the garlic clove and set everything aside. Have a bit of refreshment…you’re probably thirsty by now.  The taters are done.  Drain them and put into a big good sized bowl  now either use your potato masher on those suckers or haul out your old mix master and make those taters talk.  Put in the Philly cheese and rosemary….keep mixing.  When the taters are so soft they look like pillows, dump them in a bowl and stick a sprig of parsley in them.  Salt, pepper and butter are optional although I think butter is a must.                                                            garlicrosemary potatoesThey look nice mom.  Or:
