Shopping Around The World and Friendly Fill-Ins

Our Pal Angel Sammy is hosting this month's Shopping Around the World!

Yes indeed it’s that time of the month again (no not THAT time but THIS time) and we’re going to ask you to do the usual thing – do your post and link back to ME (yep – ME this month) so we can not only see what your recipe is but hopefully see some photos of it AND see what the prices of the ingredients were.    After all, that’s the most fun (other than eating of course) – seeing what the prices around the world are for the ingredients!   It’s amazing to me what WE pay compared to YOU all.
So what are we gonna do for “Shopping” this month?    How about we focus on something just a bit different – let’s all do a recipe for a MAIN COURSE that has NO MEAT, CHICKEN, or FISH in it…….   Surely you have something you make that is a veggie type dish as a main course?   Lots of peeps these days are changing eating habits so there are a lot of great recipes that have no meat, chicken or fish in them but are delish main courses.    SO, let’s see what you can come up with.    Then post on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24th, and link your post on that day to ME!
If you don’t HAVE a recipe like that, find one you like and share it with US.   WE CAN DO THIS!    Just remember provide recipe, a photo if possible, AND prices for ingredients.    Oh boy – I can’t WAIT to see what you post!!!

For our Meatless Main Course we're sharing the recipe for Mom's Summer Vegetable Torta (silly name since you can make it ANY time of year!)

Since we've already shared the price of eggs, cream, cheese and all, we're going to concentrate on the veggies!
Onions - 99 cents a pound

Mushrooms -  $2.37 for 8 ounces

Zucchini - we use both zucchini and yellow squash - $1.99/lb

Red Peppers -  $3.99/lb.

Jar of Marinated Red Peppers  $2.00 for 4 oz jar

Thanks to Angel Sammy and his little brofur Teddy for hosting this month.   I hope you try Mom's Torta....it's really good!

Mom is hogging the answers answering for us this week.

1. I wish ___Hats___ would come back in style. I love big floppy hats!!!
2. I always have __my St. Jude novena booklet____ in my purse.  It's the first thing I move when I change purses.
3. I think that I   should get more sleep!  
4.  Rudeness         is a pet peeve of mine.  Nobody has to be bubbly  and cheerful all the time, but some people are rude ALL the time.   

Today's Flashback Friday photo is of Angel Clifford....He sure had the cutest smile!!!

Poetic Thankful Thursday - "K"

Today is Poetic Thursday hosted by our pal Sammy at One Spoiled Cat.

Today's letter is "K"

Our poem is titled -

We know it's strange how we spelled KOOL
But we thought today we would break the rule.
We love our Mom and Dad and friends
For them we would go to the earth's ends
We think our toys are pretty KOOL
and we'll never act like a silly mule.
For Sammys' teasers we go to school
Because the Teasers are really KOOL.
Raz, at night, on Mom will drool....
she doesn't think THAT is KOOL.
We hope you liked our KOOL poem
Did you write on of your own?

Today is also Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

Allie is THANKFUL that she gets some quiet time in the Winter House...

Telling Tuesday #chewyinfluencer


dig dig....cover.....scratch......

Oh hi.....(photo blurred to protect privacy)

As you know, we're part of the #chewyinfluencer team and we are lucky enough to get fabulous products every month to try out and give our honest review.  We're always SOOOO excited when the Chewy box arrives - it's always filled with wonderful treats or food.   Um............not so much this time.   Guess what Mom got for us to review?  LITTER!   MOM!  We want treats........Huh?   oh okay.....we'll let you take over our post.

Mom Sharon here!  In spite of the fact that the Furkids were looking for tasty noms or treats, I elected to review Frisco Multi-Cat Clumping Litter this month.   I am not happy with the way our current litter tracks all over the laundry room and how much dust it produces.  When we were given the opportunity to review this litter, I jumped at the chance.  I am lucky that the Furkids are not super fussy about litter.....I can change and they will use it without any problem.  I took one litter box and thoroughly cleaned out our regular litter and filled it with the Frisco Multi-cat litter.  Right away Raz went in and used it (everyone loves a fresh box!).  

From the Chewy site:

Frisco Multi-Cat Clumping Cat Litter is made of all-natural clay that forms hard clumps for easy scooping. The granules create a powerful bond to lock in moisture and prevent any liquid from getting to the bottom of the litter box. This litter is especially formulated to neutralize odors quickly and is low-tracking, so there’s less mess and no scattered litter trails. It’s hypo-allergenic to common allergens such as dust, plant proteins and fragrances. Frisco Multi-Cat is a heavy-duty litter that’s ideal for sifting and mechanical boxes and is highly effective in multiple cat households.

Key Benefits

  • A proprietary de-dusting system is used to reduce dust, but since this is a natural product, some dust may still be present.
  • Specifically formulated to neutralize odors immediately, including ammonia odors, and is low-tracking to minimize messes in multiple-cat households
  • Hypo-allergenic: contains no plant protein, dyes, perfumes or added fragrances
  • All-natural clay forms hard clumps for easy scooping and removal, ideal for sifting and mechanical boxes as well as multi-cat households
  • Excellent odor control with a unique deodorizing system
The Furkids have been using the litter for a little over a week now. The clumps are solid and easily disposed of and there is no "gluey" ick at the bottom of the box.  We have vented litter boxes (there are fans in the hoods that vent outside) so we don't usually have an odor problem in the room but I can often  smell odor when scooping.....that didn't happen with the Frisco litter.  Also, the tracking was minimal.   Pretty much the only time there was litter on the floor was when Raz  someone decided they needed to dig to China.  As they say in the description, there is a little dust but nothing like our regular litter.  I give this product 5 stars!  Don't worry....the Furkids put their paws down on photos from INSIDE the box!!

Click HERE to buy the Frisco Multi-Cat Clumping litter from Chewy.   Hurry - it's on SALE!

As part of the #ChewyInfluencer team we were not compensated for this review but we did receive the product free of charge for our fair and honest review.
