Oranges are so a-peeling!

This week True Colours Thursday is all about Orange!

I love oranges. Big juicy Jaffa’s, little tidley mandarins. Gorgeous. I adore crepe suzettes because of the orange sauce and duck l’orange is just yummy. There’s nothing like a glass of Grand Marnier orange liqueur, and I quite like Orangeboom Dutch beer even though it doesn’t taste of oranges.

And how about those Terry’s Chocolate Oranges? Whack and unwrap! As for Jaffa Cakes – I’m dribbling at the thought of them.

Orang-utans are kind of orange. Well, I suppose they would be. So are carrots.

I went to a fancy dress party as a carrot once. I already had some orange jeans, and I got an orange shirt from a charity shop. I then decided to dye my hair orange and tie some green ribbons in it to look like leaves! Someone asked me if I had matching collar and cuffs and everyone laughed. I didn’t see what was funny because I was wearing short sleeves and had no cuffs.


Anyhow,I thought the dye I used would wash out but it didn’t and I was known as ginger nut for weeks afterwards!

That reminds me of the time my friend Keith dressed up as the Incredible Hulk for a New Years Eve bash. He used green food dye on his face and hands and arms and legs. But the next morning it wouldn’t wash off and he had to take time off work until he looked less like a lettuce! He was not so much Incredible Hulk – more like Incredible Sulk!!


So, next week our colour is silver. Why don’t you join in?

What fun reading about you and your friend's forays into the veg world--with results that prove the adage that no good deed goes unpunished! Jaffa oranges-yum!
I'll be back next week.

Sorry to rain on your parade Rosey but that is a picture of mandarines on a tree not oranges. The chocolate is yummy, can I have some?

A very cleverly collected list, Rosie- and this looks like fun, I'll have to give it a try.

And what is it about those chocolate orange segments that makes us love them? I've never understood, but I do enjoy them.
