Shopping around the World

Today, we are joining Bacon and The Canadian Cats in Shopping Around the World Hop!
This month's recipe and shopping spree is about FISH!
We shopped at 3 stores for our dinner:
Tony's Fish Market, Oregon City, Or.
Spicer Brother's Produce, Oregon City, Or.
Fred Meyer (Kroger), Oregon City, Or.
We will be making Fettuccine with Smoked Salmon.
Fettuccine is on sale today....Score!
.88 cents
Going for the premium stuff!
We need a 1/2 pound, $6.50
Yeah, the low calorie cream cheese is on sale!

Never tried this before, but the recipe calls for 1 cup......
Any suggestions for the remaining 3 cups?

We just need 2 tablespoons of fresh Dill.
We bought the whole plant, so we can grow more for later!
Also, the clerk sold the plant for 1/2 price because it looked scraggly, but our green paws can fix that!
Reg. price $2.99,  Scraggly price $1.49

1. Cook the fettuccine according to package directions, drain and place in serving bowl.

2. In medium saucepan, combine the clam-tomato juice, broth or wine, and bring to boil. Add the onion, reduce the heat and simmer until soft about 3 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, cream cheese, peppercorns and salt, cook stirring constantly, until well blended, about 2 minutes.

3. Sprinkle the flaked salmon over the fettuccine, add the sauce and toss to coat. Sprinkle with the dill and serve.

This meal cost us $4.18 per serving to make. We also have left over ingredients such as Clamato, 1/2 box of fettuccine,  1/2 can of broth, cream cheese and one thriving Dill plant!


  1. You guys are super shoppers! That salmon looks sooooooo yummy!

  2. Oh my stars!! Does that salmon look scrumptious or what? Mom is trying to get our printer to work so she can copy the recipe and try this fine recipe. It is definitely a Sunday meal. It looks beautiful too.


  3. That looks very yummy! Ghostwriter loves salmon (and so do I!) but not Dad. He's not a fish guy. He'll eat a tuna sandwich, though. Go figure!

  4. that is heavenly food... I come over... please hold my plate warm for some minutes ;o)

  5. That looks yummy, but we suspect that clamato sauce might be hard to find in Scotland.
    Toodle pip!

  6. yummmmmmmmmmm! We love your new blog header and background☺

  7. What time is dinner? Can we join you? Looks yummy!!!

  8. Sounds delicious! We love fish, and pasta and SHE loves all that saucy stuff. How great to find the ingredients on sale.

  9. Even though Lady doesn't fish (and the Man is allergic so he can't cook it for her and make her learn to like it) that looks very yummy!

  10. That looks delish! You did a great job shopping and making the meal.

  11. Mom is not a fan of salmon but it does look delish
