Baked Apple Roses, Books and Reading

07 Oct

Yesterday I saw a recipe for Baked Apple Roses which caught my fancy so today I made some and they are truly delicious, especially served warm with a dollop of Cornish Ice-cream! They were made by TipHero but I cannot find a link to the video.

I love Julia Donaldson’s books (The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom and many others) discovered when reading them aloud to our Grandchildren. I love her philosophy here too. How true – and I remember doing this as a child. In fact, I still do it. I can’t imagine how many books I have inside me!

Then this came my way today.

A child who reads ....

Both of these made me think about my reading as a child. I loved The Scarlet Pimpernel stories, Pippi Longstocking and my shelf-full of Puffin books which I only passed on to daughter No2 a few years ago. I wonder what your childhood favourites were?
