Okay, well it appears that I’m still not very well and now on top of that I am slightly hating being female right now! (I won’t go in to that haha) I spent the morning in bed, drifting in and out of sleep and trying not to jolt my back. I did get up to have lunch as I got pretty hungry, I also did some washing up and put the washing up on the line so that I didn’t feel like the morning was a complete write-off. This afternoon was a little better because I actually managed to stay up out of bed and even on my feet for a while as I was… baking!
Baking what, you ask? A lovely big cheese scone round.
Of course I was wearing my spotty apron and my cozy winter slippers! I realise it just looks like a big dough slab when it is in the oven but the smell coming from the kitchen was incredible so I knew it was going to be a success ;-)
Sliced in half and slathered with butter, so delicious. This is definitely the kind of baking I adore in the colder months of autumn and winter, it’s a lovely hearty bake and it feels a little bit like a warm hug :-)
Sorry this post is so short, I thought I’d share the wonder of the scone and say hello. If anyone is interested in making their own cheese scone round the recipe is by the amazing Mary Berry and the cookbook I found it in can be bought here.
How has your day been? Have you got any fun things to tell me to cheer me up?
