I love scones and this recipe was pretty good. I think it might be improved upon a little bit and I may play with it again in the future to see if I can get a more "layered" scone effect. However, these are delightful just the way they are. They have a lovely light lemon flavor that paired with a tart lemon glaze is a real taste treat! Perfect with a cup of tea or some coffee.
I have to thank my blogging friend Theresa from Sleeping Kitten, Dancing Dog who sent me a lovely birthday gift certificate as well as a donation to my friend Karin's homeless project. Karin and I had a wonderful time going to the mall to spend the gift certificate and ended up spending most of the afternoon together browsing, eating frozen yogurt and just shooting the breeze. It was a great escape for both of us! Thanks, Theresa and Joe!
This weekend is the ramp up to Independence Day on Monday. I doubt we'll be doing much since Michael is working but I did order some peanuts from Nutsonline.com and will be boiling some for the holiday. Yum!
Happy Independence Day! I wish each of you a wonderful holiday filled with lots of fun, great American classic food, friends and family.
