Shopping Around the World

We are thrilled to be participating in our first shopping around the world, brought to you by Bacon and Fozzie.  This months theme was 5 ingredients for a Thanksgiving Dinner. While we Canadian dogs celebrated in October, we thought we could still share the prices of some of our favourite Thanksgiving food.

The conversion of the Canadian Dollar (as of Monday this week):

$1 Canadian Dollar = .75 cents US (this makes us cry a little that it is so low!)  or $1.04 Australian Dollar  or .70 Euro or .49 British Pound

another conversion - 1 KG = 2.2 Pounds

First we have the best part - the Turkey - unfortunately Lady won't let us catch one, so we have to buy one. Turkey was $3.28 a kg.

What turkey is complete without the stuffing. Cause the Lady can't eat gluten a loaf of her gluten free bread is $6.49. Highway robbery is you ask her.

Next up is the sweet potatoes. These are a new favourite in our house. They will set you back $1.29 a kg.

What meal isn't complete with something green. The beans were $6.15 a kg.

We are not pumpkin pie eaters in our house, we are apple pie ones. Macintosh apples were $4.99 a lb. Don't ask why they were sold by the pound in Canada. It is one of those mysteries, especially since they were products of Canada.

Thanks for shopping with us in rural Quebec, Canada. 

We hope all our American pals enjoy their Thanksgiving!

    Aroo to you,

  3. Lee your place muist be like the pawradise... the food runs around on meadows and you only have to grab it... pawsome! I like that the sweet potatoes have a super price! Ours are probably made of gold, they are eggs-tremely eggs-pensive this time :o)

  8. Lady is right about that bread! Highway robbery indeed..........the rest of the meal passes our inspection though (tee hee).....thanks for the Thanksgiving wishes......we're THANKFUL for your friendship!

    Love, Sammy

  9. That bread is expensive!! What happened to cheap bread? Ugh

  10. You have Turkeys in your yard ?! Cool!

  11. The Australian dollar is about $US0.71. Are you having a second Thanksgiving?

  12. Interesting to see the differences in food prices.

    I love that you had turkeys in your back yard. We get tree rats and an occasional cat, but nothing else nearly as cool as that.

    I like this meme - as Sprinkles says, it can at one and the same time cause one to think "oh I'm paying through the nose for that!" or "Crikey, lucky I can get that for $000!"

    Sorry been MIA - no internet for a week... eek!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  14. Thanks! I almost got us a free turkey on my way home from work today....those guys are everywhere and this one decided at the last minute to cross the road! Luckily I have good brakes in my car. :)

  15. How interesting to compare prices! How about the price of an RV, did you get that BOL?

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  16. The price of food is getting outrageous here too!

  17. Sounds like the makings for a wonderful Thanksgiving Day meal, in October or in November:) Mom and Dad are originally from New England and love Macintosh apples - but they just don't taste the same here in the Midwest.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family for the past October and for next year, and what the heck, just celebrate tomorrow too.

    Woos - Ciara and Lightning and Mom too

  18. I agree, gluten free is stupidly expensive!

  19. We are big apple eaters too, and lucky they are grown locally so they don't cost as much!
    Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo

  20. That seems like a really expensive apple! Hope that is a tasty pie :D
    Happy Turkey Day!

  21. I am sure that was one great tasting pie. Hope you enjoy your day
