I was enchanted by Cinderella when I watched it as a little girl. I can’t remember if I first saw it in the theatre or on TV, but I do remember daydreaming about acting in it … as the Fairy Godmother. I don’t know why I didn’t aspire to be Cinderella, but I spent the next few months waving an imaginary wand and singing “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo”.
Maybe it was the magic. I couldn’t resist the allure of transforming mice into horses, and a pumpkin into a coach. And now that I’m an adult? Transforming pumpkin into this perfect fall loaf is all the magic I need.
