Belated Roald Dahl Day

September 13 was Roald Dahl day.   I've always loved Dahl's creative and clever stories.   Plus, this famous quote pretty much sums up my attitude towards life:

This year my favorite ice cream shop, Ample Hills creamery, came up with an awesome way to celebrate Roald Dahl: ice cream inspired by one of his most beloved characters, the cider loving,  Fantastic Mr. Fox!

Of course I ordered some, Ample Hills ships all over the country, but sadly it didn't arrive until September 14.   

The ice cream is delicious and now I can celebrate Dahl all month!   It seems Spot wants to try some but I may want to keep  it all to myself.


  1. Dahl wouldn't have let a little date bother him in celebrating, so enjoy. The Witches is our favourite. SHE even had sixth grade boys asking to stay inside at recess to hear more rather than go outside to play football!

  2. Cider ice cream sounds intriguing! We're not very experimental with flavours in the UK but we're getting there!

  3. Cool way to celebrate a great man.
    Belated Happy Roald Dahl Day!

  4. I've always loved Roald Dahl too, and that quote is very true indeed. xxx

  5. Happy belated Roald Dahl day! That ice cream sounds delicious!

  6. Great way to celebrate Roald Dahl! That ice cream looks so yummy :-)

  7. That Roald Dahl quote is so inspiring ♥

  8. That quote is endlessly wise and inspiring. In a lot of ways, it was advice/a reminder that I felt like I really needed at the moment, too. Thank you so much for sharing it, sweet Kate.

    xoxo ♥ Jessica

  9. Fantastic quote at the beginning, very inspiring and that ice cream looks delicious. What a great way to celebrate a great man! xx
