I is for….. International Scone Week!
I was going to do a deeply serious post
‘No! no, not another one’
begged the iMac
and for once I listened. So you have been spared my learned treatise on etymology and the roots of words like inspiration = in + breathe and another one that took my fancy last night : integrity – from the word ‘integer’ meaning ‘untouched, undivided, a complete entity’ . I can hear the yawns, bad idea wasn’t it?
…but it will be much more fun to make Scones along with the Inspirational and Imaginative iScone Team!
Come on, join in…. round scones, square scones, wedge shaped scones, savoury, sweet, citrussy, chocolatey, gluten free scones, small scones, tall scones, leaning tower of Pisa scones, hockey pucks, scones for Poodles… no excuses.
Make the scones, fill the kettle, dust the teapot off, invite a mate around… or eat them all yourself, either way just do it!
The perfect accompaniment to #OperationCupofTea if you are a Twitter fan too.
In praise of the Scone
I care not for a scone when tis hard
I care not for a scone when tis old
But fresh from the oven and filled to the top
With fruity delights and a generous blop
Of cream or creme fraiche – add your own special tweak
Pour out the tea for it’s our special Scone Week!
My scones were made with home made ricotta, following Brydie’s expert guidance here, and my own yoghurt. I used very little sweet butter and sugar and still the scones were light and delicious. Go on treat yourself. I’ll post the recipe on a second post in case anyone wants it.
Any other Alphabetters in August fancy joining in?
