Cronut Burger anyone?

Not sure what it is, here is a photo:
It's the newest food item at the CNE this year.  It's also being blamed for an outbreak of suspected food poisoning.  You can read more about that here.

Personally I would give it a miss as the whole idea of having  a croissant-doughnut hybrid pastry with a burger in the middle of it doesn't excite me.

They call this week's "Home of the Week," quirky, have to agree with that.  At $1.1 million I'll pass, but did have a couple of questions/observations.  What is "that" hanging behind the toilet in the master bedroom?  With a room that size (master bedroom) why push the bed against the wall like that?  Isn't ivy clinging to your house walls bad for the mortar?  As I said I'll pass.

This week's "Cottage of the Week," is a glorified shed, but at least it's more like a cottage than an over the top mansion; which is reflected in the price at only $110,000.  It would be perfect for a couple as long as you can climb the stairs/ladder (not sure which) to go to bed in the loft.  Again I'll pass, not too keen on staying in mosquito infested woods like that.

The "Condo of the Week," isn't bad at $520,000 and is very centrally located.  I am not a fan of concrete walls though, they seem so cold to me.  Also the second bedroom has no window, it will be like sleeping in a box.  Overall this place is okay, don't hate it but don't really like it either.

To me a cronut should not be mixed up with something savoury like a burger.

Cronuts are gaining popularity in Ireland but I have yet to taste one.

I actually quite like the cottage but I am a big fan of the small house movement so that's probably why.
Thanks for another great set of choices :)

It doesn't look that appetizing to me.

Can't check out the houses because the laptop freezes on that page,but I'm intrigued as to what's behind the toilet!

I will pass, on the cronut burger, thank you very much.
A FB friend is visiting Halifax and posted a photo of chocolate covered bacon which is being sold there. That does not appeal to me either.
Have a great weekend.
