Once again, it's time for our pal Bacon's Shopping Around the world!   From Bacon's blog Pig Love:

– My Apologies for the Late Notice My Friends – 

I’m so sorry my friends for the late notice.  I’ve been so busy trying to keep mom current on so many things that I almost forgot about my shopping post.  I do know that this is short notice so I’m going to make it really easy for you.  This month post anything that you want to share that you cook, prepare, fix or throw together at your crib.  It can beanything.  Just remember pictures and prices.  Again I’m so sorry for the late notice.

Come join the fun of Shopping Around the World – mark your calendars – Wednesday, June 29th, 2016.

We didn't include the price of the garlic, tarragon and shallot since we had them on hand.  We also had PLENTY of white wine on hand (Flat Raz is in detox so we didn't have to worry about him)

Dad had his dinner with carby sides - a potato and corn.   Mom had sugar snap peas.


Mom seems to be following in Flat Raz's pawsteps.....she had wine!  

We hope you enjoyed our recipe....we can't wait to see everyone else posts!
