Last weekend as my mom, sister and I were browsing the teas and food options during our fancy tea at the Ritz, my sister and mom both mentioned their excitement about the scones on the menu.
I remember telling them that I’m not a huge fan of scones. When someone says the word “scone,” my mind immediately pictures a dry muffin wannabe. Scones, to me, always seem a bit bland.
Imagine my surprise last Saturday when I bit into the freshly baked cranberry scone, and was overcome by the deliciously moist, buttery flavor explosion that was goin’ on in my mouth.
I then clarified my statement… I don’t like scones, but I do like good scones. 😀
The Best Scone Mix
A little more than a month ago, I made a batch of scones that I also enjoyed.
After my friend Merri gave me a box of Stonewall Kitchen scone mix telling me that her boss said it was “the best scone mix ever,” I made the scones and fell in love. Her boss is a smart man because the scones were delicious!
(I think Sadie agreed. 😉 )
When I previously made the scones, I made 2/3 of the recipe, and reserved a third of it for another time.
Well, today was “another time!”
Fresh off the delicious scones from last week’s tea at the Ritz, I was cravin’ good scones and used the remaining Stonewall Kitchen scone mix to prepare a small batch.
I enjoyed my scone with a smear of blueberry jelly.
These scones were buttery and moist and perfectly delicious.
Apparently I do like scones… they just have to be good. 😉
Wedding Invitation Status
Our wedding invitations will be printed and ready for pick up tomorrow!
Ryan and I flip-flopped on different invitation styles quite a few times before finally working together to create an invitation we both like last night.
Initially we were going to order invitations, but honestly I couldn’t get past the cost of wedding invitations! They’re outrageous. According to the Bridal Association of America, the average couple spends $659 on wedding invitations. Nooo thank you.
Ryan and I were very pleased with our Save the Dates, which we created ourselves for under $100, so we’re going the do-it-yourself route again for our invites. I’m hoping they look classy and romantic. Stay tuned for the final product. 😀
Question of the Evening
Have you ever proclaimed you didn’t like a certain type of food only to find that you actually do like it… if it’s actually prepared well?
