Shopping Around The World for Sandwiches

 

Bacon of Piglove is hosting Shopping Around The World today.  Sandwiches are what he wants recipes for this month.                                                

I’m not keen on a sandwich, myself.  The bread makes my ankles swell.  Very unattractive!                                                   
However, mom loves sandwiches so I will don my hat and bib…I mean apron and we will begin the sandwich.

Looks like my apron’s in the wash…I will have to be ever so careful or I’ll be bathing all evening.

The sandwich we are making is a Toasted Mushroom and Bacon Sandwich

INGREDIENTS:
Mushrooms: two                                                 $0.23 each.
Bacon: two strips                                                         
$3.98 for 500 grams or 1 pound
Mayo: spread evenly on one side of bread                                             $4.27 for 890 ml (31 ounces)
Salt and Pepper: sitting in your cupboard with the butter

Bread                                                          
$1.97 for 675 grams (1.4 pounds)

These ingredients are to build one sandwich.                                                         

First, you must fry your bacon so it is nice and crispy. After frying the bacon, cut your mushrooms into slices and fry them.
Meanwhile get the old toaster out and toast 2 pieces of bread. When the toaster pops with your bread nice and golden brown, butter one side of each piece of bread. Then put your mayo on one side of the buttered bread. Your two mushrooms go on next and finally the 2 pieces of bacon broken in half.

Your sandwich is ready.                                                      

Enjoy!

 

Sparks of….Uniqueness

Annie from McGuffy’s Reader is starting the week with a positive thought called Sparks.                                                    

We have a magnificent thought for all those that think they are different and don’t fit in.

Surprise people…just be you and relish in your uniqueness.

It’s not straw hat weather around here but I want to wear my straw hat and be me.

Have a positive week friends.

The Kentucky Derby was held today.  I had bet on Classic Empire and Kali McCracken.  Well, neither of us won but we had a great time at Cat Scouts.  We of course were accompanied by our boyfriends.horses

 

                                                                           

 Kali watched to see if any horses were passing.  Yep, most of them passed her horse…McCracken.

                                                                 We had a delicious dinner in this spectacular dining room.

Toodles my friends and have a great day.

A Visit with a New and Different Dentist

SHOKO….. BLACK
KALI….. ORANGE
COW KITTY…..GREEN

It’s time for us to get mom up and active, Kali.  I’ll go yell on the stairs and you can start talking in your loud manner.  I’m not LOUD like some ole fishwife…..I’m emphatic.  With a tad of urgency in my voice.  You mean more like a scream…MOL  It’ll get her up and rootin’ around for our brekky.  Why’s she so tired Shoko?  She has had a toothache for a few days so went to the dentist.  Her regular dentist was on her week off but her husband, Dr. Lopez was on, so she made an appointment with him.                                                       aacounter-shokoOff she toddled to meet him and find out what gives with this tooth.  Was he nice Shoko?  Her regular dentist is so nice.  Mom likes her, as far as she likes any dentist.                                                                  aakalibaskJust listen Kali.  Mom went into his office and had the x-rays taken and then the nurse introduced Dr. Lopez.  Mom was speechless.  This doesn’t happen often friends.  He looked a little like, “Sam I Am” from Dr, Seuss.

He shook mom’s hand instead of raising his hat.  Every word he said, he expressed with his hands,  He had on white gloves…..ok, they were medical gloves but the image was the same.                                        aack2What?  He turned out to be Sam I Am.  What a dentist he would make!  No, no….he behaved like Sam I Am, Cow Kitty.  Do you know mom’s tooth didn’t hurt anymore!  Turned out it was her sinus’ acting up and they made her tooth pound. He prescribed antibiotics. When he told mom she shouldn’t have a prescribed anti-biotic without taking food with it, he wagged his finger back and forth just like Sam I Am.

When mom left the dentist, she felt good to have met Sam I Am’s human twin.

One of our favourite Dr. Seuss quotes:
So be sure when you step, Step with care and great tact. And remember that life’s A Great Balancing Act.                                                                                      sistersinarmswinter
