Hi everyone. Before we get started, we want to send our deepest sympathies to our friends at Critters in the Cottage who had to say goodbye to their sweet girl, Mitalee.
I am skipping the book blog hop this week, instead we are participating in Bacon’s Shopping Around the World. This month participants were asked for a recipe of what they cook when it is too hot to cook.
This time I sent Jinx for the groceries and he did a great job. Notice our shopping cart is now blue instead of pink. I had used the pink one for a photo shoot before I gave it to my great- niece for Easter and now there is no getting it back for a photo shoot. She uses it every day. I bought this one for $9.99 and use it to store kitty toys in and when my great-niece visits, she can play with it. The truth is I am 48 years old and bought myself a toy shopping cart 🙂
When it is hot, I make spaghetti and meatballs using sauce from a jar and frozen meatballs. That way I can microwave the meatballs and sauce and only have to cook the pasta.
I buy a bag of Perfect brand meatballs ( all beef)- on sale for $6.99
jar of Ragu- on sale for $2.50
Box of Ronzoni pasta ( I like to use penne) – $1.00
Plus there are plenty of meatballs and sauce that I can make meatball grinders another night. And I use the leftover noodles to make macaroni salad. 🙂
We are also joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays because Jinx with a shopping cart is pretty awwww worthy.
Phoebe and I were impressed that so many of you knew the butterfly was a Common Buckeye. We entered anyone that answered any kind of Buckeye into a drawing -and the winner is—– Lone Star Cats ! Congratulations! I will send that out this week, I just want to crochet some toys to go with it.
