Show n Tell: Childhood Favorite Treat

Hi Folks: Sherri-Ellen here with Bacon’s Show & Tell. As a child I was NOT allowed sugar or candy or sweets because of my Hyperactivity! Plus I had serious food allergies so could not eat alot of foods either. Before you all pull out your hankies & tissues, little by little I was able to eat a few more things like Ice Cream & a bit of home baking. We used to have a bakery where I lived called Hunt’s Bakery & they used to come around with a horse & wagon…for real! I am THAT old! The ONLY dessert I liked was something called ORANGE TWISTS ….excuse me, I just have to wipe the drool off my chin……hahahaha!!! And this is why:Orange Twist Donuts 2MMMMMM don’t they look divine????? The funny thing is I am allergic to all citrus fruits & yet I could eat an Orange Twist with those hard chewie bits of orange & NOT have a reaction….sometime during the 70’s Hunt’s Bakery closed down but Tim Horton’s; the Canadian institution of Coffee used to make & sell Orange Twists:Orange-Twist-DonutsThen they stopped making them & now I had been in Orange Twist withdrawals for 3 years.   Last year they DID bake Orange Twist Timbits that were so yummy!!!Orange Timbits“MMMMMMM doughnuts” as Homer Simpson would say!  Then Tim Horton’s stopped making the Ornage Timbits &  now I am back in Orange Twist withdrawal….anyone know where I can get a fix I mean donuts???? Now I am hungry! DRAT!!!! Thank you Bacon for hosting another fun blog!

On a serious note we want to ask everyone who knows & loves Speedy the Cheeky House Bunny to please say prayers & send healing white light & positive vibrations to him across the Great Pond. He is not 100% & we want him back binkying & flomping & enjoying Life to the max! Here is a badge for all to display & pass on:purrsforspeedy 2014We continue to purr & pray for Speedy to fully recover from his tummy trouble!!!  Wishing everyone a delicious Tasty Tuesday!

Sherri-Ellen over & out…going out to hunt for Orange Twists  ;)

Doesn’t Isabella look great? She has put on weight & is very happy & bouncy & waiting for her spay surgery next week. She is a unique little kitty girl. Before I left I had a chat with another kitty named Gibby. He is a mature boy & very laid back & docile. Another cat found wandering & unclaimed & yes he is neutered!, There is something so endearing about Gibby:

Fankz fer hangin out with me n givin me treatz; now can ya find me a new home?
