Taters and Cheese: Shopping Round the World

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Are ya’ll at home like us, or are ya’ out shoppin’ with all the other mad hatters? MOL  Wouldn’t do us any good to have lots of green papers to spend today cuz we’re getting’ a really late start.

 

Dezi lays atop the liberty cat tree while Raena stands sniffing at the shelf

 

 

          That’s wha’ch’a get when you keep mommy up till 6 a.m., Raena. A late start. 

 

Me?!!! you make it sound like it’s all mine’s fault mommy didn’t go to bed till 6 this meownin’. I’s thinkin’ your just as much to blame as me. After all, you had the exploration zoomies too.

 

          Wha…uh…hmmmmm  Me doesn’t ‘member any such thing.

Well sissy, ‘member it or not, you was havin’ just as much fun as me. Anyways, do you ‘member Phenny woofin’ ‘bout this Shoppin’ ‘Round the World posty with him and Bacon? You meowed that we were gonna purrticipate this month cuz it was featurin’ an ingredient mommy’s had intimate knowledge of this past year. I’s never purrticipated in a shoppin’ posty befur; what do we do?

 

          Yeah Raena, me ‘members. We quit postin’ cuz mommy couldn’t affurd to shop. But this past year she’s ‘bought more taters than purrobably the whole blogosphere. So, to purrticipate, we link up like ya’ just did and then we post a tater recipe and list the purrices of the items we used.

 

 8 pound bag of jumbo potatoes

 

 

 

I’s see. Well, fanky fanks to some furiends, mommy went shoppin’ just the other day to pick up some goodies fur Fanky Fanksgivin’. Among the groceries she brought home was a bag of big ole bakin’ taters. And, this month’s topic just happens to be Taters. Mommy got that big ole 8 pound bag of jumbo taters on sale fur the holidays at $1.99 + tax. That’s the cheapest she’s seen taters in the last couple of years. Most of this last year she’s had to pay $4.99 a bag plus tax.

 

          Sure ‘nuff Raena. Mommy likes to keep butter on hand in case we need medicine or somethin’. The last pound of butter mommy bought was $4.57 + tax. So, we’re gonna meow ‘bout a delishus baked cheesy tater and cheese fries. Here’s the recipe along with ingredients and costs.

Mommy does luvs her cheese doesn’t she sissy? And butter. Mommy luvs butter like any good Southern Belle. I’s luvs cheese too, but mommy won’t let me have very much. She says it stops things from working right and means I’s have to have extra butter spoons. Anyways, either of these dishes can make a meal. Mommy says ya’ get a starchy vegetable, a little protein and dairy.

 

          That’s true Raena, but me would rather have some meat. Me wants me’s protein from a nice juicy rabbit, not some cheesy tater.

Mmmmmm Rabbit. I’s with you sissy. Well, we better go now. We’ve still got lots of extra luvvin’ to take advantage of. Mommy says we’ll be takin’ Monday off. Seems last year the innernets was so busy and slow, we could hardly get anythin’ done.

 

          Yeah Raena, Cyber Monday is a big shoppin’ day. All those who didn’t shop today or didn’t get everythin’ they wanted today, will be trollin’ the net fur deals a purrlenty. We can’t wait to see all the tater recipes today. Maybe mommy can get a few new ideas.

Maybe sissy, but I’s thinkin’ mommy’s purretty tired of taters right now. Anyways, let’s go play. Maybe we can even go fur a stroll later.

 

Till the next time……………………………………………Be Blest!!!

Dezi: Vibrant Blue

About Deziz World

My name is Deztinee. I am a Ragdoll. I was born 11/1/2009. I am a service cat along with my sisfur RaenaBelle, also a Ragdoll, for our disabled human mommy. My sisfur Raena was born 4/21/2016. In March of 2016, mommy and I had to say goodbye to my mentor Alexandra (Lexi), a black tabby born 4/29/1999. This blog is about our daily life from the kitty's point of view. We were both rescued from bad situations and our mommy raised us and trained us to be service cats. I want this blog to be interactive and get to know all of you, so comment and visit often.

    • We all like taters and cheese too. Mommy used to keep cheese in da house all da time. But now she doesn’t get enuff food stamps to buy a pound and won’t spend what she does get on a small size. She says it’s stupid to charge so much. Mommy likes mac and cheese too, but, the cheese thing ya’ know. MOL Anyways, enjoy your tater. Big hugs

      Luvs ya’

  4. YUMMY! Too bad we don’t gobble up any taters these days…might have to have a day of eating all the wrong things, MOL! And then have a miserable few days to remind us why those things don’t come to our den anymore:)
    It bothered petcretary to know your noms are so expensive and then even taxed! OMC:(
    Sometimes butter …the real deal is $2.69 a pound here, though if you get organic it might be 4.99. No idea what taters cost here these days, but 1.99 is a great deal to be sure!

    We hope your Thanksgiving was filled with much love and togetherness and we know you will always count your blessings, no matter what else. Because God is good and gives us all we stand in need of.
    Petcretary worked and she considers it a blessing to herself to help others who need it…we don’t mind sharing her:))

    • Organic??? OMC we don’t even know what that might cost. We’re not even sure stores ’round here carry it. MOL It bothers mommy that things are so ‘spensive too, but nopawdy cares what she thinks. MOL Big hugs
