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!

Shopping Around the World

This month we are highlighting easy dinner ideas for the summer months. Summer months are way too hot to be cooking in the kitchen making the house even hotter.

During these months, mom likes to go for ‘light’ foods that really don’t require a lot of cooking.  When mom/dad went to Chicago in May, my Aunt Tina got this salad in the picture below at Richard Walker’s Pancake House.  Mom was so amazed about the beauty of it and knew that she could do the same when she got home and she did!  So although this picture is not one of hers, she replicated it perfectly and has many times in the past couple of weeks.  It’s very feeling and I know that first hoof because mom has fixed me some too.  I’m a lucky pig, right?  So without further ado, mom will give you the breakdown below.  Enjoy my friends… I know I do!

Grilled or shredded chicken.  I buy a rotisserie chicken at our local Sam’s Warehouse on Sundays.  It costs $5.00 and I break it up into three different meals for two people each.  Part of the shredded chicken goes into this this salad.  Breaking it into three different meals makes it cost $1.67 for two people on this salad.

A head of lettuce costs $0.99 and again breaks it up into three different meals.  That makes this part $0.33 for two people on this salad.

Shredded cheese.  I buy medium block cheese and got a block on special for $0.99 a block.  It’s really hard to ‘cost’ how much it would be for this salad.  I use it on a lot of different things and shred some for this salad.  I’m going to assume I cut the cheese block up into four sections.  With that being said, this part in the salad would be $0.25 for two people.

Boiled egg.  A dozen eggs cost me $1.29.  If I know we will be doing several salads in the week, I will go ahead and boil 6 of them at a time.  That way I’m ahead of the game.  Two eggs (for two people) for this salad cost $0.11,

Avocado.  I love slice avocado but the hub doesn’t.  I buy one avocado and split it into two meals.  Avocados were on sale for $1.00 so the salad part is $0.50.

Tomatoes.  I bought six medium sized Roma tomatoes at the market for $1.39 – that’s $0.24 per tomato and we use one per meal for two people.

Broccoli – a head of broccoli was $1.59.  Again, we break it up into many different snacks/meals.  It probably ranged $0.40 per meal for two people.

Dressing for the salad – the hub uses 1000 Island and I use Italian.  We pay $1.50 per bottle and it breaks down to about $0.25 per salad for two people.

Now the fun part – putting the salad together.  The only thing I didn’t put in the salad was shredded carrots.  Jim is not a huge fan so we left them out.  To build the ‘salad’, we put shredded lettuce on the bottom.  And when you do this, I make sure all of it is ‘bite sized’.  I hate it when you order a salad in a restaurant and you have to use a knife to cut it up because everything is cut too big.  Don’t you?  After the lettuce, I then place the items above on top like the picture. I add the salad dressing and then toss to get everything coated with the dressing.  Then it’s time to jump into that delicious salad and enjoy.  Final cost $3.64 for two people.

Watch Out Ax Body Spray

  My mom and dad have got to quit going out and shopping.  Earlier today, they came home laughing.  Why you ask?  They showed me this picture – Bacon Body Spray.  ALL I have to say is, “What the piggy are people thinking?”

Bacon Body Spray – really?  No mom and dad didn’t buy this product.  I kind of wished they had though.  Exactly what does Bacon Body Spray smell like?  I don’t smell.  Really I don’t.  I’m very clean.  So how would people really know what Bacon Body Spray should smell like?  Can you tell me that my friends?

Has someone ever made a spray out of you?
