Tea Time Treats - Perfect Pudding

Tea Time Treats is a monthly challenge run by Karen from lavender and lovage and Kate from What Kate Baked.  This month's challenge is being hosted by Kate and the topic is 'Perfect Puddings'.

In our house there is one very clear winner when it comes to puddings - the crumble.  Its delicious buttery golden topping can cover a variety of flavours, and is often the way of choice for using up garden fruit.  In fact due to an unfortunate childhood encounter with a bug ridden berry, it is not easy to get Arthur to eat garden fruit.  However it is always easy to get him to eat crumble!   We like it with custard, with cream, with ice cream, with tinned milk, cold or hot the crumble is a winner.

So when challenged to make the perfect pudding crumble had to be it.  Having finally been able to get out in the garden at the weekend, the snow and frost having past, I noticed a lovely clump of young rhubarb just ripe for the picking so the flavour was chosen.

Vintage Mystery 2013 challenge: Scattagories

Next Thursday (7 March) is World Book Day and in the run up to this I have been looking for some reading challenges to participate in.

One I have decided on is Vintage Mystery Reading Challenge 2013: Scattergories hosted by Bev at My Reader's Block. The challenge is to read at least eight vintage (pre 1960) mystery books fitting into a list of categories.  You can find the full list of categories and sign up post here.

I'm not sure which categories I will go for yet, I need to do a bit of research, but will keep you updated and hopefully post some reviews of the books I choose.

Update!  I have done my research!  My first foray into Vintage Mystery
