Hello there, my lovely bloggy friends!
Guess what I did??? I actually braved the perils of the kitchen, and did some baking!!! I know you probably don’t believe me – as you know me so well – so I took some photos to prove it.
Simon was out all afternoon, at a ‘magic lecture’. I imagined him sitting in the Great Hall at Hogwarts, while Dumbledore imparted all his wisdom on witches and wizards from all corners of the globe. It WASN’T like that, though, Simon assured me! He said, “It was just a load of magic geeks, sitting in the basement of a magic shop!” How disappointing!!!
Anyway, the upshot was that I was Home Alone! I had been catching up on my blog-reading, and was drooling over Jooles’ scones, at the Sew Sweet Violet blog. I decided to give her recipe a try.....
I left out the sultanas, as I’m not a big fan. But, other than that, I followed the recipe to the word.....
And my scones actually turned out LOOKING and TASTING like actual scones! Success!!! The ones I enjoyed most, of course, were the ones I sneaked (with a cuppa from my favourite mug) straight from the oven, while they were still hot! Mmmmmmm!!!
Thank you, Jooles, for sharing your recipe! ♥
Oh, by the way, Jooles is currently running a FABULOUS giveaway over at Sew Sweet Violet. To celebrate her 1st blogging birthday, she's giving all her followers the chance to win either some gorgeous pocket bunting, or a super-cute patchwork needle case. So, pop over and take a look.....
Wishing you all a lovely weekend!
