Warm, fresh scones. When I think of scones, I remember being 5 going to IKEA. Don’t you just love that store? There is always something fabulous to be found! Especially in the kids section. Don’t lie. I know you’ve looked at all those adorable little beds and nightlights and chairs and whatnot. (If not, what are you waiting for?) Back to the scones, we were at the IKEA cafe/food place, and I simply could not decide. What on earth was that white thing studded with berries that was shaped like a triangle? Mom quickly informed me that that was a scone, and they are delicious, so I should try one. Being a good little girl, I looked for a minute more, then listened to my mom. I think she even got one too. Man, was this good. As I write this, I swear I can still smell that little scone. Just the perfect blend of flavours, so delicate, yet sturdy enough for a 5 year old.
So while all of you in the States are enjoying your Thanksgiving, I’m going to be at school, dreaming of not those scones, but these ones. Pure cinnamony goodness. Warm, fresh and well, yummy!
