Shopping and Cooking Around the World

 

Bacon, of Piglove,  is having his Shopping Around the World blog hop today and we thought we would honour him by cooking a snack with no meat.  Teddy of Two Spoiled Cats is the guest host for this month so we applaud Teddy for taking on the duty.  *apaws* *apaws*  We decided this was a great idea.                                                  Our snack is a warm and a fun food….no cares, no worries.  The only things that lost their lives ….oh, oh!  What Shoks?  What did YOU do wrong?  This snack has meat….bacon to be exact.  How could you Shoko…..poor Bacon…you’re cooking him!  The poor guy.  I feel terrible Kali.  You should…maybe we can get around it.  We’ll call it, um, nocab.  Gotcha!

Today we are making CHEESE AND NOCAB-STUFFED PEPPERS  This is a snack you can make and cook in 30 seconds…I mean minutes, 30 minutes.  Mom can make it up quickly cause dad keeps eating them.  So she’s getting lots of practice.

INGREDIENTS

10 jalapeno or banana peppers…$0.27 each fresh
2 slices of nocab….$5.28…500 grams No Name
3 tablespoons cream cheese…$2,88 No Name
2 tablespoons of fresh mint…$1.98 President’s Choice

DIRECTIONS

Seed peppers. Cook nocab slices until crispy. Finely chop or rip them up. Stir cream cheese with chopped mint. Stuff peppers with cream cheese mixture and top with nocab pieces. Broil on a baking sheet for 2 to 3 minutes.

                                                  You could have softened the cream cheese Shoko, crap!  My paws are getting cramps and I broke a nail.

 

This is it for the recipe.  You will notice mom has more than 3 tablespoons of cream cheese…this is because she’s cheating and adding more cream cheese with green onions and nocab…a little summer savoury for additional flavour.  I urge you to first try the recipe and then experiment.

The peppers are from our garden and so different sizes.

Hope you enjoy our snacks.

Have a memorable day…meow it up!                                                     

Skimming Through The Everglades

 

walkmiamiMom and dad had allotted  3 days to see all the sights in Florida.  They had spent most of their holidays living it up in Georgia.  One day had gone and so it meant our travellers had two days to see what they could.                                                                            shokszmcropMom and dad quickly got outta Miami and headed for anywhere else!  They drove past the airport a couple of times and both admired the size of the airport.   At this point dad decided to use the GPS as they  wanted to see something different.  Makes sense…go for it dad.  So he asked mom where she wanted to go.  Mom decided she wanted to go on an air boat ride through the Everglades and look at the wildlife.  Dad thought this was a cool idea so off they flitted in their rented Fiat.                                                              a4smExcitement went through the car at the unique sign.  They hadn’t seen a sign like this before.  No crocs though…except for mom…MOL  They must be getting close…

There it is!!  Gator Park.    Kinda touristy.  Off they went to act like the tourists they were.                                                                  a3zmThey both got t-shirts that had an alligator on the front and said, “Bite Me.”

There’s the air boat they rode in.

airboatWhoa, this is some kind of boat!!  Bet its fast.

a3smOh my!!  Hope there aren’t any snakes….I hate snakes!  Slimy, cold thingies.

allie2smMom is sorry for the blurriness of the picture but she got excited and didn’t take time to focus properly.  At least she’s honest about her screw ups.                                                            aaa2These are Mr. Google’s water lilies.  Mom could not get a picture close enough to show the detail in the lilies.  These water lilies only open half way…they never completely open and only grow in the deepest part of the water.

azmBig bugg…guy!  Apparently these brutes live for 30 to 50 years.

Mom said she really liked this waterfall and after the boat ride was very relaxing.                                                                         alsm       You looked way better before the air boat ride mom and dad!  Holy cwap, this seeing different locations looks hazardous to one’s health.

Here mom have a mint julep, it will eliminate the vapours you seem to have…..very badly.                                                           aaaThere you have it.  Day two in Florida is coming to a close.  They have one more day…what will they do?  We’ll see next installment my friends.                                                         Kali and Shoks
