Here Today, Scone Tomorrow

Raspberries were on sale ($2.99/package,) the forecast was for light rain, and it was a non-golf day. Whaddya expect? Scone morning everyone!

Dropped berry scones make a delicious, easy, breakfast in 30 minutes. This recipe makes 6 large free-formed scones. I formed these by hand shaping them into hamburger-like 3” diameter patties.

I froze half of them for a future breakfast. Scones can be frozen for up to 3 months, then thawed on the counter for an hour before reheating in the oven. Even easier is to microwave them, still frozen, in 30 second bursts, being careful not to overheat them.

Valentines Day Flower Bouquet

I decided to make a bouquet of Flowers for my Jersey Girl for Valentines Day last spring. (I really don’t need a reason to give Fran flowers, but this was a good excuse to practice, practice, practice)

I made a variety of flowers based on a picture I found online. This took some time and the little white flowers and red berries tried my patience. But it was worth it. I don’t think I have made any this nice since last spring.
