Shopping Around the World With Shoko

Another month and another Shopping and Cooking Around the World with our host Bacon of Piglove.                                                 

We are supposed to show you what our ‘go to’ meal is. You know, when you come home pooped and don’t feel like making a big meal that everyone devours in 5 minutes. Mom has a few of those type of meals but dad’s favourite is Pizza with extras.

Mom got the 2 pizzas at Real Canadian Superstore for $2.98 each – $5.96

1 can sliced black olives = $1.18

100 mg. of Black Forest Ham = $3.67                                                    

100 mg. of pizza pepperoni = $1.92                                                

There….. all your ingredients cost $12.73.  That’s for 2 pizzas with enough leftovers to make another meal.                                                      INSTRUCTIONS:  Place the black olive slices on the pizza first.  Put on as many as you like.  Then place the ham all over the black olives and finally, your pepperoni spread out to cover the ham.  Follow the directions on the outside of the pizza cartons for cooking.  You’re finished.                                                     

I am sorry, everyone seemed to jump in and take their pizza…..photos be damned!

Kali Hits The Road

I’ve had quite the day my buds.  First thing this morning after breakfast, mom and dad brought me to my carrier.  Oh Lordy, no….I feel spectacular….I don’t want to go to the vets.  Well, my pleas landed on deaf ears and off we went to the *shudder* vets.  The vet was that Dr. Bowman again…Dr. Kalyn is so much friendlier.  Dr. Bowman is just a young whipper snapper…I trust someone a little older with some experience under their pelt.                                               dr. BowmanDr. Bowman gave me the usual exam…tree trunk up my butt, mining light to see inside my ears and I got thrown placed on a scale..  I gained almost a whole pound.  Mom was so happy.  My food allergy has been kicking up so I have scratched a patch of fur from my neck but there are no marks there.  As mom was paying for this insult, dad whisked me to the car.  When mom returned we were rolling on all fours.

 

I headed straight for the food when we got home….I have to work at keeping that pound on my bod…I like to see mom smile and laugh.   After dining on the ham mom rolls up for me…I call them ham rollups.  I know she sticks my arthritis meds in it but I do love ham and most times I can barely taste the meds. MOL

As I was cleaning the ham off my face, mom decided to put me in the stroller.  Now, this stroller has been in the house for some time and I’ve looked it up and down, stepped in it and it doesn’t seem to do anything  so I was happy to get in the stroller but I started to pace.                                                             akarelMom stuck her scarf beside me and I relaxed with her smell so close to me.

Since I seemed relaxed mom decided we needed a walk outside in the fresh air.  I was a little unsure of this idea but I didn’t say anything, just gave mom my, “Really!” look, with huge blue eyes.  She got the message, stroked my furs and chattered away to me as she usually does and I laid down.

aklzmwalkMOL…and we were off in a cloud of horse buns!  Mom walked us to a busy street just as a fire engine was roaring by with siren blaring.   Good grief that was louder than Cow Kitty during a nip attack!

We walked up near the park and fancy that, the city had put a bench out for mom to sit on since she walked Shoko up here.  Someone must have seen her chugging along  and thought she needed some place to sit.  MOL                                                                   akfwkThe smells were awesome.  I loved it and wished we lived closer to the bush.

akswkBefore long it was time to head home.  I finally did it!  I went out for a ride in the stroller.  Shoko can’t tease me anymore about being a fraidy cat. MOL

Have a relaxing evening buds.                                                             Kali and Shoks
