demanded Tom on his return from school yesterday,
'What delicious icy treats have you prepared for us on this hot, hot day?'
Startled by this uncharacteristic mode of speech all I could do was stammer
'erm, ice cubes?'
Today I set about providing some delicious icy treats that would please everybody.
No money was to be spent.
I had grapes, tinned peaches and oranges.
Frozen grapes are a fabulous healthy snack on a hot day.
They must be eaten frozen though, don't defrost them or you will end up with mushy blobs.
I simply spread my grapes on a baking tray and froze for a couple of hours.
These are peach and orange lollies made by blending a 400g tin of peaches plus their juice with the juice of three oranges.
