Swallows and Amazons

I am reading this (British) childhood classic for the first time. A little summertime regression, perhaps, but so what. Some of the middle class references grate -- Nurse, for instance, is always being given Baby -- but it does make me yearn to sail to a deserted island and cook scrambled eggs over a fire. With mugs of tea, of course.

  1. ooooo sounds great! I miss scrambled eggs, we dont do ANYTHING with eggs in our home! And I miss them dearly.

    BTW, Noel (sis in law) made a cake for Katherine substituting 1/3 cup of pumpkin per egg in the recipe....OMG the most delicious cake I have EVER had. (pumpkin did not have spices in it so it did not taste like a pumpkin pie
