Shopping Around the World

Today we're pawticipating in Shopping Around the World sponsored by Bacon from Pig Love.

Here are the details from Bacon's blog:

Me and my pal Fozzie started Shopping Around the World in April 2014.  This has become a huge hit and we all want to know if we are paying more or less than everyone else – snorts.  Our next scheduled Shopping Around the World will be – Wednesday, September 30th.
Do a posting on your blog linked back to mine.  That way we can keep track of all of the different prices.  It should be interesting to see the differences between.  Mark your calendar so you can do a posting with us.
Items to price this month:
FIVE items of your CHOICE – Something that you go to when making the family dinner.  Perhaps this is one of your family’s favorite?  A quick meal?  A snack?  List your FIVE items and discuss what the meal is.  Having pictures will also be fantastic to share.
Our recipe is easy peasy baked real live dead shrimp served over zucchini noodles (Zoodles)

1 stick of butter, melted
1 lemon, sliced
1 T Italian seasoning (I use Trader Joes 21 seasoning salute)
1 pound(real live dead) shrimp, peeled and deveined

 Line a cookie sheet with foil for easy cleanup.  Pour melted butter onto pan, place sliced lemons on the butter, and place shrimp on top of the lemon slices.  Sprinkle with seasoning and bake at 350° for 15 minutes. (I find it usually takes more like 20-25 minutes)

Zucchini Noodles

2 small to medium zucchini
spiral or julienne slicer
Cut noodles using your preferred tool.  I use this spiral slicer, but I've also used a Titan Peeler.  The spiral slicer is much easier!
After cutting, let noodles sit in colander for 30 minutes.  A bit of moisture will drain.  After 30 minutes, give them a squeeze with your hands to remove more water. place zoodles in a large pan. I use a deep skillet..  Toss with a bit of butter, a teaspoon or so will do.    Heat over medium, tossing often, just until the zoodles brown a bit.
Shrimp   $12.95 (large, peeled and deveined)
Lemon 3/$1.00
Butter $4.95/lb
Seasoning  $3.95 for a 2.2 ounce use about 1 tablespoon
Zucchini   $1.69/lb

We can't wait to see everyone else's Shopping Around the World posts!

Please keep our Daddy in your purrs and prayers today as he starts week 1 of his 3rd round of Chemo.
