Friendly Fill-ins and Shopping Around the World

We're pawticipating in Friendly Fill-ins sponsored by Four Legged Furballs and 15 and Meowing.

Mom is answering for us today. 

1. Fireworks start way too early and go on too long.  We worry about the poor animals that get scared like our woofies used to.______.
2. My favorite 4th of July picnic food is _See below!!___ _.
3. I begin every day with  giving Bill's photo a kiss and asking him to help me get through the day.__.
4. Ice Cream in the Summer__ is the best thing since sliced bread.

Today is also Shopping Around the World with our pal Bacon from PigLove

From Bacon:
Shopping around the World will be hosted on Friday, June 29th.  This month we will be highlighting easy dinner ideas for the summer months.  Summer brings heat and who wants to be in the kitchen cooking, right?  So this month, let's concentrate on what you prepare for dinner in the summer months.
Post your meals and prices on Friday, June 29th and link back to my blog so everyone has a way to your blog to check out your menu's.
Hope to see you here!
Our Summer meal is usually something cooked on the grill but Mom loves "FAUX" potato salad made with cauliflower instead of potatoes.  Dad was a great griller and Mom is still learning about using our grill which is the Big Green Egg.  She's never used a grill that was real charcoal before (NO lighter fluid!!) 

Not Mom's photo.

  • 6 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 hard boiled eggs, chopped (reserve one for garnish)
Cook cauliflower until crisp-tender.   Make sure you drain it well or your salad will be watery.  Mom pats it with paper towels.  
Mix mayonnaise, mustard, salt, and pepper in a large bowl.  Add cauliflower.  Stir in chipped eggs.  Some people like to add a little pickle relish.  Mom doesn't. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. 
Cauliflower  $2.70 (on sale right now)

Mayonnaise $4.59/15 ounce jar (Mom only buys it when it's BOGO)

Prepared Mustard $1.99/12 ounce jar

Eggs  $2.89/dozen
What's your favorite Summer meal?

That "salad" looks yummy! Every year without fail ... some yahoo is setting off fireworks from 4pm on the 4th to 2 or 3am the next morning in our courtyard. Bear always gets all skittish - one year, he hadn't laid down or taken a nap by 1am so I turned on my music list and pumped up the volume. I had a sleeping kitten in about five minutes :)

#3 is purrfect. What a wonderful thing to do everyday. The salad sounds interesting and very easy. Mau is sending his beloved Allie a bazillion smooches and love to last a lifetime.
