A Favorite Snack Food

21 Aug


It’s that time of the year again when the cherries are in full flourish. Mom buys them at the market because they are suppose to be good for arthritis. She says it works so during this time of the year, we always have some in the cold box.

Mom made the mistake of giving me one last year and now I’ve been hooked ever since. Thank goodness I don’t have to fight dad for these – he doesn’t care much for them.

Mom takes the stem and seed off for me and gives me the actual cherry. I could snarf down eat the entire bag if she could get the seeds out quick enough.

A little funny about cherries though. Don’t eat too many of them.

One time I ate so many of them that when I went wee wee, it was red. I thought dad was going to have to call rescue until mom remembered the cherries I ate. That was a close call. Snorts

    It’s one of my favorites too. I’ll have to see if eating a lot does the same to me.

      Snorts – it did me. I ate a lot. Me and mom snarfed them down until we couldn’t hold anymore. That’s a lot for this pot belly piggy. Cause you know, I can put the food away – 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

      Snorts. I imagine she was like my mommy and went over the edge. She thought something majorly was wrong with me. That threw her over into panic mode. I was feeling fine so I knew I was okay. But for a moment, I thought mommy was going in CSI – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

      That is so cool. We are in Summer now. I can’t say that it’s much of a Summer but in theory it’s Summer. It has rained almost every day. That’s why I’ve only went outside once. It’s just too wet. Mommy says that if it continues, she’s going to have to put waders or floaties on Albert when she drives to work – Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

        I agree. With the summer being so rainy, I think we are going to be in for a rough winter. Well, that’s what mommy says 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

    *snort, giggle* thanks for the heads up on the side effects of cherries. Is there a food you don’t eat?

    • PigLove

      08/21/2013 at 9:05 am

      kumquats. eeww – yucky – spit – gross – nasty.
      Us piggies are suppose to like them. Mommy has a friend that has a piggy rescue. Her pigs absolutely LOVE them. You eat the entire thing – rind and all. It’s suppose to have a natural sweet/sour taste to it. The first time I tried one, one of y ears went one way and the other ear went the opposite way. I had to literally pick mommy up from the floor from laughing so hard. Silly mom.
      So, other than that. Nope, not much I won’t try…. or haven’t tried. XOXO – Bacon

        I’ve never had a kumquat before. They look funny. Are there foods you would like to try?

      • PigLove

        08/21/2013 at 9:18 am

        Don’t try them – snorts. Daddy hates them too. Mommy tried and she was like okay. It started at the market. The owner knew I was at the house and had mom/dad try one and then bring some home for me. I was not impressed at all.
        New foods, hhhmm? I’m not sure. I like to try everything. In fact, I tried my first taco the other night – snorts. I’m going to have to post the video. I like all kinds of food – me and my belly are always game! XOXO – Bacon

        snorts. Now, I’ve never had that 🙂 But you know once, mommy brought some leftover crab home for the purr thing Mouse Girl. Mouse Girl gave me a bite. It was pretty darn delicious too. XOXO – Bacon

    That must have been very alarming! Red is definitely not a color one wants to see “at the back”
    Enjoy your cherries and I hope they get rid of “Arthur Ritis” for your Mom!

    • PigLove

      08/21/2013 at 9:07 am

      They do wonders for mom during Summer. She eats them almost everyday… and I beg off of her every day 🙂
      And no, I don’t want to ever see that color coming out of my captains quarters again – ever! XOXO – Bacon

    I think my mom is a piggy too. She always eats the whole bag. My dad is no piggy he is a Kamikaze-guy. He ate a truckload of cherries and washed it down with icecold diet coke. Wow that was a thunderstorm in his tummy!

    • PigLove

      08/21/2013 at 9:08 am

      Snorts – oh yes. I can almost hear the tummy from all of the way over here! So funny. XOXO – Bacon

    Red wee wee, oooh! Did you know that you can eat a cherry whole, Bacon? Mamma accidentally dropped one and I ate it all up, I didn’t even know (or care!) there was a big pit. Your Mom is just too thoughtful 🙂

    • PigLove

      08/21/2013 at 9:10 am

      Seed and all!? WOW – I am so impressed. Mommy pits all of mine. You know how my mommy is – she over worries. She’s afraid of seeds herself so I think that over lapses into my life. Do you know she believes if she swallows the seed, that fruit will grow in her tummy. Silly mommy! That’s just ridiculous. XOXO – Bacon

    Wow, really? We had no idea it helped with arthritis. I’ve never had cherries before though, when it’s season here I’d better ask my hooman for some!

    • PigLove

      08/21/2013 at 9:14 am

      Yep, mommy is a firm believer in cherries in the summer. Cherries have powerful antioxidants that help reduce inflammation. They had stop the production of certain inflammatory chemicals. XOXO – Bacon

      Aren’t they just delish? So juicy and so good. I hate it when the season is over! They are right up there with my favorite – strawberries. XOXO – Bacon

    Cherries are really, really good Bacon. I can see why you love them. Be careful though! 😉

    • PigLove

      08/21/2013 at 2:35 pm

      I most certainly will my friend. I have to admit it scared this little piggy just a tad. No more overdoing on the cherries. XOXO – Bacon

    I didn’t know that about the cherries making your wee pink BOL

    • PigLove

      08/21/2013 at 4:25 pm

      It did mine. Mommy totally freaked. I ate almost the entire bag that mommy had. She couldn’t pit them fast enough for me. I can’t help it. I’m a pig. I wanted them ALL – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Yet another food for me to add to the list of things I must try, and thanks much for the heads up on the wee wee color effect. Last time I ate watermelon, I had so much that there were bits of pink in my poo. Daddy totally freaked at first. Is that too much information?

    • PigLove

      08/21/2013 at 11:13 pm

      Of course not my friend. Nothing is ever too much information when friends are concerned. XOXO – Bacon

    Poor Bacon, what do you do in winter when all your fave summer fruits are hiding??? (Can your mom defrost you some great frozen treats?)

    • PigLove

      08/22/2013 at 7:35 am

      Never fear – there are still good treats in the winter 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

    Hmmm I’ve never tried cherries but if they make your wee couloful they must be fun! I love kidney beans… Have you tried them? Bisous Bailey

      hhhmm no I haven’t. Am I missing out on something yummy? Must write them down on mom’s list for groceries 🙂 Thanks my friend. XOXO – Bacon
