What's in the basket?


Have you ever wondered what Red Riding Hood was carrying in her basket? In Jacob and Wilhelm's story, she was carrying a piece of cake and a bottle of wine to Grandma. Over the years, Red Riding Hood has brought Grandma a pot of butter, custard pie, cheesecakes, fresh eggs, blackberry-wine, and fresh baked cookies. If we were telling the story today, what do you think Red Riding Hood will be carrying to Grandma's house?
