the magic porridge pot
daftbird
For a start I'm envious of anyone that can have oats as i can't have gluten.

Porridge in goldilocks,porridge in this one -what's with that?

A little girl is crying in the  woods because she's hungry.An old woman appears and gives her a pot that will cook porridge for her whenever she asks it to-so she tells it to and it does.LIKE THAT'D HAPPEN.Next thing she's pictured eating it with a spoon-well where did the spoon come from???The old bat didn't give it to her and WHAT? she just HAPPENED to be carrying a spoon with her in the woods??Is she in fact some kind of junkie-which would also explain her lack of funds???We'll never know.So one day the girl takes a walk in the woods again-what the hell does she do there?-and her mother decides to have a feed,only trouble is she can't remember the words to make it stop cooking again-she's probably menopausal and had a job to remember her own name.The end result is that the house,street and town were soon filled with porridge.The residents feared that the whole world would be filled with the stuff.Girl returns nonchalantly from her walk , speaks the words "stop,little pot,stop!" and saves the day.Methinks the author was perhaps smoking a bit too much of something.

Overall-enjoyable ladybird book.Highly recommended to 5 year olds everywhere.

Mood - hungry now
Music - i'm so hungry,so hungry,so v.v.hungry
Edited - Never

Oh this is the same story as Strega Nona - only of course being Italian Strega Nona's magic pot makes spaghetti rather than porridge.  Then Big Anthony tries to use the pot while Strega Nona is away but he doesn't know how to make it stop (I think you're supposed to blow it a kiss - slightly odd) and so the whole town fills with spaghetti.
Just like in your porridge story Strega Nona returns and stops the pot. But the ending is that Big Anthony has to eat all the spaghetti to clean up the town! Hooray!
