I was browsing recipes and food blogs this morning, and I came across this great blog www.onceamonthmom.com Its great! I found a recipe for these scones and figured I still needed to make the family breakfast so lets whip them up!.
This recipe is so quick and easy anyone can make them... and oh so yummy! I set out to work at 8 am... I was finished preparing, taking pics, and baking by 8:45am. That's the way Sunday breakfast should be!
So it's Sunday so as always my lovely husband (he really is!) is sleeping in. I try to give him to at least 9am.... the kids and I are usually always up by 6.... 7 on a good day. I woke him up at 9 with a hot cup of coffee in his STEVE mug (that's his name if you haven't guessed.) And a fresh from the oven scone with whipped maple butter.... Does he know how lucky he is???? I'd kill for 9 am wake up time... let alone someone bringing me hot coffee with scones!
