Happy Friday!

We made it through another week!

Who else thought this week would never end?  I for one didn’t think it would.  Mommy has been dragging all week saying she was tired.  I can’t have that.  I need mommy fully rested so she can have snuggle time with me.  Is that so wrong?  🙂

August is here and hopefully all of this heat will be coming to an end soon.  Mommy says if we can make it through August, then it’s down hill from there.  I hope so because this little oinker is not very fond of the heat.  Once it goes away, I may try to venture outside again.  Right now – eeww – it’s too hot for anything but staying inside near the air conditioning.

Do you have any great plans this weekend?  Mine is to help mommy clean house tomorrow and then hopefully we can have our snuggle time.  I hope cleaning goes fast!  She’s giving us all our honey do lists.  I got my room again and laundry.  That means I have to pull all of my dirty ‘stuff’ to the laundry room.  I would complain but the rent is free here 🙂  Plus, I get perks… who doesn’t like perks, right?

Everyone have a great weekend and do something fun.  XOXO – Bacon

Shopping Around the World

Thanks to everyone for participating in mine and Fozzie‘s Shopping Around the World.  It’s so awesome to see the various prices, recipes and pictures of food from around the world!

This month was a free for all.  Five items of your choice for any meal or dessert or appetizer – it’s your choice.  

Knowing this, my mom went all out – snorts.  I am going to tell you about the hottest thing that mom has eaten lately.  She gets this salad every.chance.she.can.  Notice I said “get” and not “fix” – snorts with piggy laughter.  Okay, this month mommy is cheating by not fixing this delectable, gorgeous salad.  She has been on this DIEt thing lately – not only to lose weight but to get a few of her numbers down in her bloodwork.

Well, my daddy is a meat eater – go figure huh?  There is a local steakhouse that he absolutely loves to go to and will jump at the chance anytime he can.  But here’s the great spot, mom loves this Strawberry Pecan salad they have and she says it’s a meal for her.  What daddy does is order his steak and upgrades his salad to this masterpiece for like less than $2.50 – can you believe that?!  That way, daddy gets his Flintstone steak and mom gets her beautiful salad.

And on this beautiful salad is red onions, grapes, strawberries, pecans, oranges and lettuce.  It is topped with a strawberry vinaigrette. Can you taste it?  I told mommy that this little oinker wouldn’t even mind this salad for dinner.  What about you?

Shopping Around the World

This month items to price were:

FIVE Ingredient Salads.  There you go.  Cold salads, pasta salads, seafood salads, chicken salads, hot salads – any salad of your choosing – five ingredients.  List the ingredients, prices and how you make your five ingredient salad.  We have enjoyed seeing everyone’s homemade dish over the past couple of months.  IF you can attach a picture to your FIVE Ingredient Salad that would be awesome!

  This was a challenge.  I like a lot in my salad – variety keeps me interested in eating the things *I should*.  It’s always an endless battle.  And I’m really trying to fix salads more often these days.  Me and the hub unit have come across the perfect FIVE ingredient salad for us which consists of the following:

(1) A bag of mixed lettuce ($3.00 a bag); (2) A 1/2 pound of ham ($6.00 sliced at the deli); (3) Shredded cheese ($2.50 for the block); (4) pecans ($8.00 a bag); (5) Thousand Island dressing ($2.49 bottle).

We go for the mixed bag of mixed lettuce because it has everything in it – but it’s one item, right?  Between me and the hub, the one bag can last two nights.  So for this meal it cost $1.50 for the salad mix.

We like to add a little meat to the salad for a chef salad.  We get the ham from the deli and ask them to shave it thin.  We get 1/2 pound and we can eat on this all week – it doesn’t take much to put in the salad – just some for taste.  So I’m estimating for the salad portion for the both of us $2.00.

We buy the blocked cheese when it is on sale and I shred it myself.  One block can do salads all week so for the both of us on cheese $0.50.

Now pecans are expensive around here – and we are in the south!  I like to buy a big bag of them at $8.00 – they freeze very well.  I will take some out, chopped them and toast them in the oven.  Then I put them on our salad for crunch.  Kind of like having croutons but way better.  The one bag lasts us for about 2 weeks so averaging it out it costs about $1.00 for the both of us.

Then the dressing – you have to have dressing and we both love Thousand Island.  The one bottle lasts us all week – it’s a small bottle 😦  That averages out to $0.50 for the both of us.

So what is the bottom line for this salad for the both of us together?  $5.50 for dinner.  And we change it up from time to time.  Salads are so versatile and we love them.  What about you?
