scones versus bread

[drat – am i the only one that just hates it when the cursor shows in the title box and i start typing away only to see everything pop down here?]


Although I’m still wishing I were somewhere else, totally at my leisure to ignore the world, or not, it’s too much fun reading everyone’s blogs, and perhaps I’d better make some sort of effort toward contributing. Herewith, mine humble offering . . .

    Scones and the cutting table…….very interesting, and the pics are making me a little peckish. It was an early start today, so even though it’s just after 8am it’s 3 hours since I ate breakfast πŸ˜‹

    Scones. And bread. And cheese. (Is that a legal answer?) I do believe that rainbow is a sign of sewing things to come. I recognize that shape on your cutting table! πŸ˜€

    I’ve never had much success making scones, though to be fair I’ve not tried much! I do like eating them though with jam and cream, there is sometimes a discussion over here on whether the Devon way or the Cornish way is right, one is jam on top of cream, the other is cream on top of jam, I prefer the latter πŸ™‚

      Hope I’m not putting my foot in it with this post! 😲
      I’m pleading ignorance, as this is the land of much puffy sliced white bread & sweet dessert scones loaded with icing sugar & nary a bit of cream or jam in sight.
      I’ve eaten plain scones made by a British cook, and they were absolutely heavenly. So much so I don’t remember what I put on them, nor the order.
      I can tell you cream over here ain’t what cream is over there, and suspect the same with jams. So sad! πŸ˜‚

    Being English I can’t possibly choose between scones and bread because they would be totally different things. Scones, preferably warm, must be slathered with a mixture of butter, thick cream, preferably Cornish, and a big dollop of strawberry jam all downed with a huge pot of tea. Cheese scones are also popular but are not generally eaten with meals – well, not by me anyway πŸ˜‰

      Curious about scones at meals… but not that I think about it that’s what I remember from my reading – always with tea, but not much else… whereas here they’re often served with anything.
      Hope I’m not walking into trouble with that – not generally, folks, just in my humble & stunted experience!
