City House

It has been over a month since the dogs and I have packed up the car and headed down the Interstate to the City House. The weatherman has given a good report so the driving should be uneventful.....If you don't count that shootout on the Interstate yesterday by Seattle, between two cars, yes, while driving in traffic!!! I won't go into anymore details as I am trying to put it out of my mind.




As promised, I have a report on Beth's version of the Scone recipe from the Blog Share last Wednesday.  Oh, My!....




Never, oh never, have I had scones like this!  I am used to having the hard-ish ones that look like they 'should' be good but really do fall short of what my eyes told my brain.

These, I will make again.  They are super tender but don't crumble and fall apart and make me think that someone should demand that the 'other' scones get a new name to go by, as the two are in no way related!

Please do not be deceived by the messy look of my example here.  I goofed up by taking the blackberries out of the freezer too soon.  I'm sure they would have held their shape better if still frozen.

My lack of experience in the baking realm didn't matter, with a great recipe and Beth's detailed instructions, even I turned out a product to be proud of.   Thanks Beth!    Here's the recipe.


I must be off my friends, I still have things to pack and makeup to put on, which for some reason takes longer and longer as the years go by...hmmm?

Have a happy Monday and I will try to come by your places after I get settled in this evening.  xo

Hi Sherri - I will be in Seattle on August 6th for the whole day (I have a long layover). If you are still in town, maybe we can meet for coffee or something?
