I loaded up this page to write up the post, then went to my google photos account to download my pictures, because my computer is refusing to recognize that I’ve plugged in my phone tonight. Then Google photos asked me if I wanted it to show me memories from this week in past years, and I clicked on it, and that was a mistake, because now I’m looking at pictures of Grandpa, who passed away two years ago last Thursday.
Um. Scones. I made them. They were, in fact, quick and easy. I skipped the dried fruit (cranberries or blueberries) because I was feeling lazy and didn’t have any on hand. There were 8 of them. Sometime between Friday’s lunch and Monday morning’s breakfast, they all disappeared. I can’t fathom where they might have gone. Jay managed to get one of them before they all disappeared. He said they were biscuit-like. I guess that’s good?
Buttered scones for tea. Or maybe just buttered scones for breakfast, lunch, and snacks. I guess mid-afternoon snack could otherwise be known as “tea”. Yup, I’m a lumberjack, and I’m ok.

Cute photo of your grandfather. Bet you miss him terribly. Great to know these scones are good without the dried fruit. I’m going to try them with a vanilla bean and vanilla powdered sugar glaze to see if they rival the original Starbucks. Funny, the Monty Python reference. Love that song!
Good to know they’re tasty even without the fruit – if you get a chance, stop by and see mine. http://www.butteryum.org/roses-alpha-bakers/2015/8/31/tbb-flaky-cream-cheese-sconesuit.
I thought they were a bit biscuity too, which was a good thing. Sorry about your grandpa, i love the ice cream cone shot you shared.
