Scones!



Tonight the Young Women I work with came to my house to learn how to bake. I decided on a simple recipe, but one I had never tried before.  I didn't want to be poking around and cautiously checking to make sure "nothing was ruined" which is a lot easier to do when you're making something for the first time.  (I am horrible about things like that.)  So I chose homemade scones from Ourbestbites.com.  The ladies did an excellent job - and I had my first homemade scone.  I will definitely make these again. Anybody have any absolute-must-add-ins for scones?  These were super basic, but still divine.


BDEM:  Today I introduced my dad to Skype.  Oh the joy of teaching oldies about the internet.  I kid - but I couldn't help but giggle a bit as he discovered face to face chat.  He even referred to it as "The Skype" one time and that just sent me over the edge! He has been vacationing in Argentina for a month, so it was nice to see his face and hear his voice again.  Thanks for taking all that time to see the kids and talk to us. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

Water:  50 oz and counting....

"The Skype" cracked me up! Just like it cracks me up when I hear old people say, "The BYU." Awesome.

dried apricots and dried cranberries are both excellent in scones. you can also sprinkle sanding sugar over the top of them before you bake them and it's really good. i LOVE scones. one of my favorite weekend breakfasts (perfection if you eat them with a big old mug of creamy hot chocolate).

Ok so I got a bit confused. In the future, I think I'll just call it "El Skype". It will remind me of our first "chat" from BA to the Orem.
But it truly was a treat to see you and Rob, with the kids jumping up and down, crawling all over you and making faces into the camera!
