My Favorite Scones

Posted by Anne Yorks on Tuesday, April 6, 2010

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter (that is, if you celebrate Easter. If not, then Happy Spring to you!) 

My family had an awesome day, mainly because we started the day with a great church service and one of these...



We had lemon scones and cappuccino.This is my favorite scone recipe. I found it in the Family Fun Magazine a few years ago. Click here to view and print the recipe from their site. You won't be disappointed and it's so easy to make! Do you like this picture? Topher took it with his cell phone! Crazy!

Church was great. My daughter was so well-behaved that I got to enjoy the entire service without interruption. Our Pastor is doing a series on the miracles and Sunday's sermon focused on the miracle of the resurrection. You can probably listen to it by clicking here. Our church puts all the sermons on our church site, www.livepraylove.com, as a podcast.

The rest of our Easter day was relaxing, tasty, and so much fun. We had egg hunts, balloon rocket blast offs, and a great brunch. 

***One more thing before I get back to work. 

Do you have any leftover Peeps? Consider toasting them over the fire. We had a little Peep Roast with Topher's parents and it was, as Topher put it, "almost a gourmet experience".

Here's a great picture of my Father-in-Law (aka the nicest guy I know other than Toph) roasting an entire row of Peeps. 



He toasted them to perfection. The outside was a little caramelized and crunchy and the inside was soft, warm and delicious. We enjoyed these after our dinner of bunny-shaped pizza! This was Toph's Mom's creation and my little girl loved decorating the pizza.

Sorry this is a quick post. I have to work on taxes again today. Yucky. I do have tons of cookie pictures and projects to share with you. I can't wait! Coming soon...

Have a sweet day,
Anne

    I may have told you about one of my rescue steoirs Jewell, a beautiful large white snow dog of some sort. In Dallas, we lived near a big urban lake park in a neighborhood of large treed lots the perfect place for jerks to dump their animals. Jewell was found by one of my neighbors, but they didn’t have the yard to keep her. I not only had the fenced yard, but also a separate kennel-type yard. Anyhow, Jewell was a real sweetheart. She got along with all my dogs and went on walks with us. A family with two boys and a little girl at the far end of the neighborhood fell in love with her and adopted her. We got her all settled in, or so we thought. In the middle of the night I was awakened by someone licking my face. It was Jewell. She had broken out of her new home trotted across the neighborhood, broke INTO our yard, crawled through the doggie door and announced that she was back! She eventually did settle in to her new home and was a wonderful dog to the family, but they had to beef up their fence and then let her sleep in the house with them to keep her from coming back to my house!
