Sometimes I think I’m a mental adolescent. I scare myself. Case in point: last week while channel surfing, I stopped on Boomerang Cartoon Network and wound up watching like 3 episodes of The Huckleberry Hound Show (can you say crazy?).
It brought back fond memories of my childhood and Saturday mornings filled with hours of cartoon watching. I loved Magilla Gorilla, Mr. Jinks with Pixie and Dixie (they were the absolute cutest mice on the planet) and Hokey Wolf.
Somehow the sweet little blue dog and his southern drawl on my tv screen also made me think of one of my favorite kids meals – Grilled Cheese. Mmmmm. Buttery crusty bread filled with ooey gooey orangey cheese. I’m still hankering for one and am currently recipe searching for a delicious adult version I can make in my own kitchen. I'll keep you posted.
Yes folks, even cartoons can make me think of food. It’s disturbing.
P.S. - You can watch Huckleberry in action here.
