When do you daydream.. and if a writer is that where your stories or poems begin? In Robbie Cheadle series on creating young bookworms she shares the benefit to children of daydreaming. Hosted by Kaye Lynne Booth.
When I was a little girl, I loved to day dream. I was one of those kids the teacher is always calling back from dream world. The recall to reality was always a little negative in my recollection. “Stop daydreaming, and concentrate on your maths/history/geography – fill in the blank.”
As I’ve grown older, I’ve realised the benefits of day dreaming and mental downtime.

We eat a great many vegetables and I love roasting them and making a pasta sauce.. this recipe from Dorothy of New Vintage Kitchen looks perfect for a sharing platter or adapted to add to both rice and pasta
Pick a rainbow of autumn vegetables, top a bed of wilted greens, and enhance with a simple Maple, Miso, and Mustard Sauce.
It is the perfect time of year to think about a big platter of roasted vegetables, especially the delicious roots of the season. I feel truly blessed to live in a beautiful and bountiful area in a state that supports local, sustainable agriculture. Within 15 minutes of my house, I have many farm stands waiting for me, and most of them are organic; so much to choose from: beets, carrots, and potatoes of many colors, squashes that span the rainbow, winter radishes in pink, black, and purple, onions, turnips, rutabagas, Brussels sprouts, celeriac, celery, and fat heads of garlic. Every platter of delicious can be different.
