We're so excited.....For the VERY FIRST time we're pawticipating in Shopping Around the World hosted by PigLove.
Here are the rules as posted on PigLove's blog:
Thanks to everyone for another great edition of Shopping Around the World. It’s so awesome to see the various prices around the world!
Me and my pal Fozzie started Shopping Around the World and it has become a huge hit. We all want to know if we are paying more or less than everyone else – snorts. We are going to do it again this month on Wednesday, May 27th.
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. This month we are focusing on items that we *have* to have in our lives.
Items to price this month:
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!
SO.....Here we go.....
Our salad is one of Mom's favorites....it's called a BLT salad and is easy peasy to make and delicious. She can throw this together in a couple of minutes.
1. BACON!! 1 lb nice and crisp and chopped into good sized pieces - 2. Iceberg Lettuce - chopped 3. Shredded Cheddar 4. Mayonnaise 5. Grape or cherry tomatoes halved
Mix together and enjoy! This is one of those salads where you kind of use your own judgement on amounts. We like lots of cheese and bacon! Prices:
Smithfield Hickory Smoked Bacon $7.19 BUTTTT it was BOGO and Mom had $1.00 off so we got TWO pounds for $6.19!!!
Iceberg Lettuce $1.79
3. Shredded Cheddar - 8oz - Regular $4.49 but it too was BOGO so it came to $2.25
4. Mayonnaise -2/3 cup or to taste - guess what? Yep....ANOTHER BOGO. $5.77 so one container was $2.89
