Here it is another Shopping Around the World hosted by Piglove and Fozziemum. This week we can make anything our little pea pickin’ hearts desire.
Kali stood up and said she wanted to be the celebrity chef from Fort Meezer, for this dish.
Hello my friends. My dish today will be Greek Potatoes
Let’s hear it for Greek Potatoes…..*smashes plate by throwing it at the wall.* “OPA!!” hehe Do you know where the Greek custom of smashing glasses and plates stems from? MOL…Stems…glasses…MOL Opa!! *smash*Me-wow
Greek tradition has it that this practice started when a rich family invited a much poorer family to dinner and to make them feel better invited them to break the plates. They were proving that friendship is everything. And there’s no better way of proving that than dining with friends over Greek food.
Without further Αντίο ( adieu in Greek) our main course for the day:
2 tablespoons & 2 teaspoons olive oil Terra Delyssay 750ml…..$7.99 3/4 cup water …free 1 clove garlic, finely chopped Elephant Garlic….$4.48 Lb. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice we use Real Lemon as it’s not as strong as the fresh lemon 950 ml $2.77 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme out of garden 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary out of garden 1 cube chicken bouillon 60 grams $2.99 3 old potatoes, peeled and quartered 0.87 LB. salt and pepper to taste

Here we go with another episode of Bacon’s Shopping Around the World.
We were suppose to list 5 items that we use to make up a meal or snack.
All items were priced at Save-On Foods except the feta cheese which was bought from The Real Canadian Superstore.
These are my five items.
Cucumber, long English…..$1.29
Tomatoes, vine ripened $2.00 for 6
Green Onions bunch $0.29
Feta Cheese 400gram tub (14.1 ounces) $7.48
To make up 5 ingredients we’ll thrown some herb…lemon thyme to be exact, on top of the cuke, tomato and green onion mixture. The herb cost us nothing as we grew it.
Our snack or appetizer costs about $0.60 a plate. It’s one dish that has both hubby and I happily eating veggies again after canning and freezing so many veggies we don’t want to see any veggies for a month!
