We ate flies!

This sweet bread is called "Ears"

But if you look it in this way... looks like a fly!
The first time my mom saw one of these (when she was a little girl) she said it was a fly... since then... the ears are called flies in my house!
Sometimes, my mom puts one of those in her lunchbox and eats it at work. Can you imagine the face of her co-workers when she tells them she is eating a fly??


My new dress for Mother's Day!

I hope you all had a pawesome day!

The sweet bread looks very yummy, and what a very nice dress you have. =) Mom smelled funny today and with further sniffing I realized she had been holding a mini you!! I think this whole getting a puppy thing might actually be serious!!

When my mom was a pup she used to go hiking and camping with her mom and dad. Whenever they went, they always bought a certain kind of cookie to eat as snacks along the trail. For some reason they got nicknamed "fly cookies."

They haven't been able to find them in a store for ages, and they've forgotten the real name of the cookies so they don't even know how to find a recipe!

Aren't humans ridiculous?!?


PS - Yellow is such a nice color on you, Lorenza!

Brind'Amour said...

MMMMMMmmmmm, flies, ears, it's all the same -- it's all food! Yummmmm....

I love your new dress Lorenza! *wink*

Lucia said...

Ciao dolce Lorenza!

Mmmmmmm ... that's the most delicious-looking fly I've ever seen! I'll bet it tasted just scrumptious, too!

Tanti baci!

hi Lorenza, that looks like a delicious 'fly'. did your mom share with you? we're glad it's not the buzzing kind of fly. our mom doesn't like those at all.


Bijou said...

Hi Lorenza,

That fly looks very yummy. I wish I could try one.

Your new dress is mom's favorite color. Very joyful!

Stella said...

Lorenza! Here in Minniesoda, we have sweet bread shaped like "ears" but they call them Elephant Ears! So crispy and yummy. I only had a bite of one once, but I could eat a whole lot of them if someone would give me some!

Your dress is beautiful and a perfect color for you!

Hi Lorenza,

The picture looks good enough to eat, but it doesn't smell. I like flies. But your flies look better.

Simba and Jazzi said...

Another new dress?! In our house ginger bread men are called run runs. Because when our human brother was little Mummy use to pretend the gingerbread man was running away and she's say, run, run as fast as you can and our brother would say, run run, run run.
