Grandma’s Kitchen: Vanilla Memories

Today I completed Block 2 of the Grandma’s Kitchen – named Sticky Buns by its designer Pat Sloan.  However my grandma’s never gave me sticky buns so I have called mine Vanilla memories. It wasn’t breakfast, but it was an early morning snack as we sat there. As a 3 or 4 year old I remember sitting on Nana C’s verandah on luggage waiting to catch a  steam train up to the farm in Fielding from where she lived in Te Moana Rd, Waikanae, .

Sitting beside me was my uncle, older than me by two years. We were sucking on vanilla milk ice blocks. I loved them and always remember that wonderful vanilla taste. No vanilla has ever tasted better.
