Where there's a will...there's a way! :o)

On Saturday when I went into Lisa's freezer to get some ice I saw a package of these little gems and my tast buds starting popping!
One of my favourite Saturday morning treats is to make up a package of Pilbury's cinnammon buns and sit back with a cup of hot coffee and enjoy. Mmmm! When I saw these were orange flavour my thoughts immediately turned to, 'How can I take a package of these home with me?'

Fast forward to Saturday afternoon when it was time to head to the grocery store. I borrowed Lisa's car (more about that in the next post) and headed to the store. I found all the ingredients for my appetizers and then looked for my next item, 'Rhodes Orange Rolls.' Sure enough they were right there in the frozen food area and before I could help myself (ya if I was even trying!) a package had hopped into my cart and I was heading to the checkout before you could say, 'warm yummy orange rolls covered with icing!'

Lisa made a package of these for b'fast Sunday morning and I knew they were worth the effort to carry them home.

Monday morning arrived and as I was packing my suitcase it was time to pack the rolls. Thinking of what frozen buns could do when left in a warm area, I bravely double bagged them and placed them in my suitcase. Visions of the old story of the lady driving down the highway and having a package of the rolls explode in her car drifted through my mind but to have these at home I was willing to take the risk. After all, it's pretty cold in the belly of the plane so at least at that point they'd be at the right temp. I hoped! Little did I know that I'd land in the middle of a heat wave in Toronto to temps above 80o! Still...I knew it would be worth it.

I arrived home in the early evening and began to unpack my suitcase. Hmmm...maybe packing frozen food in my suitcase is the secret to getting me to unpack in a timely manner? (Ok...there was See's Chocolates to unpack too which I had to get at!)

With little concern I opened the packaging and was happy to find that other than a little shifting, my orange rolls were in perfect shape and guess what...the oven was already preheated and just waiting for those yummies!

They travelled across 2 countries but as you can see here, these delightful little morsels were well worth the effort they took to bring home! Too bad we don't have 'smellavision' on blogs but take it from me, these treats are yumm-mmy!


  1. Those look good! I think I need to run to the store to get some!!!


  2. It truly is amazing what we Canadians will do for food not available up here!

  3. I can't believe the rolls made it home alright! Too funny. You just crack me up my friend. Can't wait to see you again. Your post brought all the good memories rushing back.

  4. I can't believe those made it all the way to Canada in such great shape! I am so going to buy some of these for the weekend!
