Hiding Out



After a summer/fall drought, you sure don't ever want to wish away rain...but a couple days off would be nice.  What a slop fest!

Did it hit 60 today? Your scones looked beautiful and what are you making next?

Jo said...

Aw, show us your scones too! Our kitties have sheepskin donuts like those in your photos. Have a great weekend. Jo

The fur kids know what to do on a rainy day - sleep! Yes, inquiring minds want to see the scones and a recipe would be nice too. We are supposed to have rain in the coming week with temps in the 40s and 50s - strange weather for January.

Our rainy days will be next week, nevertheless, my pets have already started their 20/24 sleep cycle. And gosh, I baked scones yesterday too (but the family has gobbled most of them up).

We had a drought too here in the Northeast but I'm hoping it's over. It seemed to rain or snow continually since Christmas Eve. Caught a break this week though. Love scones too!

Here in Oregon where I am, we've had record breaking snow and cold temps. Ill-equipped, the entire Portland metro area and it's surrounding suburbs came to a standstill. Now comes the rain, the thaw, and the threat of flooding. It sure has been an interesting winter so far.

I think sweet Comby (xoxo!) has the right idea; hunker down in a donut and sleep until the rain passes...

I always detest mud season, whenever it comes.

Sourdough waffles and they were great :-D.

As anyone who's ever been to our farm knows, I am not a cook/baker. However, in an effort to be able to make sourdough pancakes for the Iditarod/Iknitarod this winter I got a sourdough starter...which requires weekly maintenance...which has led to me learning how to make pizza crust, simple breads and now scones :-). Amazing! Anyway, I just used the Christmas Scones recipe from King Arthur Flour http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/christmas-scones-recipe They were very tasty :-D.

In response to thecrazysheeplady - Hey, I have fond memories of a pimento cheese sandwich. Truly, I'm not kidding!

A good part of my house flooded on Tuesday night - due to uphill neighbors not maintaining the drains in their yard + the amount of rain we've been having. I'm sleeping on the couch in the family room while the bedrooms are ripped up. Good thing = no fiber was harmed during the flood :-)
