How could I forget Scones?

When I blogged about my FABULOUS weekend with my new girlfriends, who are indeed ROCKET SCIENTISTS, I forgot to tell you about the SCONES.  One dear friend brought scones, ready for the oven.  That meant they would be fresh baked.  They would be hot.  Served with clotted cream and lemon curd.  Washed down with mimosas.  Could life get any better?  I don't bake.  Really!  I don't even bake cookies every Christmas.  It's just not my thing.  I'm a fairly good cook, but baking has always eluded me.  There is just something about paying attention to the oven.  I get distracted.  I forget.  I burn.  My new ROCKET SCIENTIST friend, Wendy, says I can do this.  And, she's a ROCKET SCIENTIST, so she knows a lot of stuff.  If she says I can do it, I believe her.  She is going to send me the recipe.  Hopefully she will look at this blog and see how I've been bragging about her and remember to send me the recipe.
Hi Wendy!!!

Another of the ROCKET SCIENTISTS, Deb, bakes bread.  She said I could do it.  Wendy bakes bread, too.  I LOVE bread.  Really, who doesn't?  I am really beginning to re-think this notion of baking.  I've been encouraged and I like the end product.  Seems like a win win situation to me.  I'm really seriously considering becoming a woman that bakes.  I'll let you know.

On a similar subject, I've been considering posting cooking recipes now and again.  I like to cook.  I don't have lots of time, but I like it.  I like using fresh ingredients from local farms.  I'm thinking about this.  Do you think you would like to see some recipes and maybe even a picture?  My last blog featured pictures I took with my iPhone.  I don't have a cool camera, but I have a cool phone.  I wish I would have taken a picture of the SCONES, but I was hungry.  Next time.

  4. yumm...i love scones...and bread...we determine the restaurants we go to by the bread they, all for should help my diet tremendously...smiles.

  5. my gracious! I love scones. LOVE THEM. I am not much of a cook either. It's such a pain. I am a champion at eating though. It's a difficult tension I live in. :) Sounds like we are in the same boat!

  6. by all means, happygirl, bake and cook away. I'll be drooling, I mean waiting.
