Shopping Around the World

Welcome my friends to a new year of adventure and great food!

July we are highlighting great sandwiches of any kind.  In the summer months, it is way too hot to bake or cook on the oven.  For that reason, we are doing sandwiches that require little to no cooking.

For this month, I’m letting my mom take it away


What you will need:  Dinner rolls (we got the new Sara Lee Artesano which comes 12 rolls to the package for $3.69 – you will need six rolls); Ham of your choice (you could use any kind of deli meat – this is our favorite – don’t tell Bacon.  The package costs $4.07, you will need a third of it); and shredded cheese (a block of cheese cost us $1.99 – use whatever type.  We use medium cheddar and about a quarter of the block).  Total price $3.71

 

How to prepare:  Turn your over on just long enough to get a little hot.  Cut the tops off of he dinner rolls trying to keep them all together.  Put the shredded cheddar cheese on the bottom dinner rolls.  Then top with slices of ham and more shredded cheddar cheese.  Place the top back on the dinner rolls and put on a baking sheet.  Put in the oven just long enough to get the cheese to melt.  Take out and cut into little sliders for dinner.  Trust me, they go FAST!

Travels in the South

Living in the south, there are lots of comfort foods. But sometimes on a cold and rainy day, you want something that soothes your soul. Mom’s choice for that is grits with cheddar cheese and crumbled up turkey sausage. It’s hot, gooey and delicious. I hear your naysayers turning your nose up at grits. But let me tell you something. When done right like this, grits can be delicious! 😋

Travels in the South

Sometimes you just need a little comfort food.  You know something warm to your belly and tasty… don’t forget tasty.  A couple of weeks ago, mom was craving some comfort food just like this.  So her and daddy went to a local pub that has what mom calls the *best* grilled cheese sandwich evah.  Why do you ask is it the best?  This is what it has on it:  American cheese, cheddar cheese and pimento cheese… and mom added gulps bacon to it with a side of crispy french fries.  Hey I can overlook the bacon when it brings a smile to mom’s face like this lunch did.  Have you ever had something so cheesy and good?

Travels in the South

They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I agree.  Mom has fixed me omelettes for breakfast and dinner.  However, I’ve never had an omelette like this one before.  It seems mom likes something called a Colorado Omelette.  It has all kinds of wonderful yummy stuff in it – some things I can’t mention because well I’m an oinker and it wouldn’t be good for me so I’m letting mom take it from here.

For obvious reasons – this omelette is loaded.  Loaded with goodness that is.  It has bacon, sausage, shredded beef, ham, onions, green peppers, mushrooms and cheddar cheese.  And let’s not forget to top off that deliciously wonderful omelette with salsa.  Yum.  Have you ever had an omelette topped with salsa?  It just brings so much more to the table.

Travels in the South

Go ahead – check this dog out – snorts with piggy laughter.  Do you remember the Courthouse Tavern that mom/dad went to a couple of weeks ago?  You can check that posting out here.  Well, Houdini had a spa appointment this past Saturday in that same area.  So since they were in the same area, guess what mom/dad decided to do.  Yep – visit the restaurant once again.

This time, dad again went for a hamburger.  Shaking my head –  he’s so predictable.  But mom, she wanted something different.  She went for what they call a Jazzy Junkyard dog.  All beef (thank goodness-snorts) with a side of steak fries.  Now those fries are just the way mom likes – not soggy but crispy and wonderful.  And on her dog, she added cheddar, some kind of meat she told me I’d probably be better not knowing and fresh jalapenos.  You want a bite, don’t you?

.

Mom said the hot dog was awesome but she didn’t care much for the bun.  The bun was toasted and although that gives a great flavor, the bun was kind of stiff and hard which is not good.  So if she orders it again, she will ask them not to grill the bun.

Wonder Woman What?!

There I was this morning looking at the news on my i-Pad.  You know minding my own piggy business in a world all to myself.  That’s when a friend of mine on Facebook showed on her page a picture of some wondrous food.  I mean BIG time knock you on your piggy tail awesome food.  I’m talking my daddy would absolutely LOSE his mind with this hamburger – see below.  Was I joking?

So, I did what any decent pigson would do.  I finished reading the article and then tapped down the hall to dad’s room.  Of course I would say run but then we would all know I was lying.  This pig doesn’t run.  It’s bad on my knees.  Oh my bad – I don’t have knees – snorts with piggy laughter.  Trust me, once dad saw the article he quickly forgave me for the slight hoof mark I left on his ankle – only slight.

This monster of a burger is courtesy of a restaurant in Tampa, Florida called Datz and is called the Amazon Warrior Burger.  It was created for the new movie Wonder Woman that is now currently showing in theatres.   It was only available for one day – bummer.  It would have been an awesome trip.  So what makes this burger warrior material?  You tell me – here are the ingredients:

The bun is sourdough and decorated with white cheddar and American cheese starts.  The bun has also been dyed red, gold and blue.  There are two beef patties broked up – wait for it – by a slice of pineapple!

So, what do you think my friends.  Are you game for a warrior burger?  Licks my piggy lips now.

Shopping Around the World

My friend Fozzie and I have scheduled a group posting today of Shopping Around the World.   We thought it would be interesting to see the differences between different countries all over.Here are our prices for the following from our area – Georgia USA.

 Items to price this month:

  • Milk.  Mom usually buys 1/2 gallon store brand which lately has been on sale for $1.00
  • Tomatoes.  Mom loves Roma tomatoes.  They are small but meaty.  She bought some for the dinner at $1.29 a pound – that was about 4 tomatoes.
  • Canned Product.  Black beans.  How could you possibly go wrong with black beans – especially when you can buy store brand for a $1.00 a can.  Mom bought two cans for the meal.
  • Homemade Dish.  Jalapeno Cornbread with Black Beans 🙂 yum – see below
  • Random Item of your choice.  Jalapeno.  Mom bought one very large one and it only cost $0.69 the day she was at the market.

 Okay my friends.  Mommy went easy – really easy on this month’s Shopping Around the World – go mom!  She was able to combine all of her prices and items into the Homemade Dish – which is one of our favorites here at the Hotel Thompson.

Jalapeno Cornbread made with with a diced up Jalapeno (according to taste how much you throw in), cup of milk, 1 egg, 2 tablespoons of melted butter, 1 cup of cornmeal and shredded cheddar cheese.  We have a small iron skillet that will serve four slices of cornbread.  Mix ingredients, except for shredded cheddar cheese, and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  When done turn over skillet onto a plate and top with shredded cheddar cheese.

Black Beans with tomatoes, diced Jalapeno’s and diced red onions. So easy here – snorts.  Open store bought black beans and heat over the stove on medium heat.  Add a little chicken broth (or whatever broth you have on hand), diced Jalapenos (to taste for heat) and diced tomatoes.  When bubbles, turn down to low and stir.

When bread is ready, spoon black beans into bowl and top with more diced tomatoes.  Mom even added some cilantro into the mix this date.  A meal made for a king and queen.  Filling and hot for a cold rainy night that we seem to be having a LOT of lately.  Happy eats my friends.

Oh… and this entire meal when you break it down ends up to be around less than $6.00 for two people.

I hope you had fun my friends with this month’s edition of Shopping Around the World.  Hope to see you shopping soon!
