Perdita longs for warmer climes

 Perdita is always cold here in Canada, especially at this time of year.  It is particularly bad at the moment because the Argentinian Girls have been hearing about the warm temperatures in their natal lands…33 degrees C in the Sierras of Cordoba yesterday!

Last June the Quimper Hitty’s human recieved a visit and a box of treats from one of her Argentinian friends...The treats were immediately hidden to protect them from marauding teenagers..

Alfajores!

They are the very best kind of Argentinian treat – two delicious cookies, stuck together with Dulce de Leche, and dredged in icing sugar…

Gracia, Perdita and Eugenia (and the humans belatedly) thank their friend Lucrecia for the delicious and thoughtful gift, which makes us all think of the beautiful hills, the spicy air and our dear friends in Córdoba!

  1. what a nice posting.. Lovely to see the girls enjoying a little slice of home. This entry makes me think of those
    tastes and foods that just mean HOME… Thank you for the memories.

    • Esos son los alfajores superiores y mejores – asi dicen toda la familia Quimper Hitty. Gracias me gustaria mucho mas alfajores havanna, no puedo hacerlros tan rico… Si teinen suerte, los Quimper Hittys peuden comer un pedacito!

    • Hittys are generally sociable and unassuming dolls, if they take after the original Hitty from the book. the Quimper Hittys have nevertheless developed their own personalities…They all have fun here! I am glad you enjoyed their fun today!

  2. My email doesn’t always deliver notifications of the happenings in the Quimper Hitty cupboard, so when I discover an adventure that I had missed out on, I am always delighted! What fun that their lost and found treat was also a lost and found treat for me! Sweet delights 🙂
