1. An addiction to caffeine. When its 35 degrees outside and your professor has no understanding of the phrase “I’m cold”- you turn to warm drinks. Like tea. And cappuccinos. It got to a point where I was downing two teas and a double capp a day. Whatever, I’m warm-blooded.
2. A love of scones. And ‘biscuits’. Not cookies. Biscuits. Tea -n- Scones = one of the best combos out there. A warm fragrant drink with a comforting and justsweetenough scone is perfect on a cold day. Or any day for that matter.
My mom also likes scones. Not because she lived like the Brits for a few months but because there used to be a cute little tea shop in our downtown that served handmade scones everyday. They were amazing. But they closed. Damn recession!
Yesterday was my mom’s birthday. So I made her scones for breakfast. I think I might have to try another recipe though because these didn’t turn out like the dense crumbly ones I’m used to. Or maybe I should take the time to measure everything out. I was kind of in a rush and may have eyeballed a few measurements. My bad.
But I saved them! And they did taste pretty good- when they first came out of the oven anyway. The next day they resembled a dry cake. Not so great. I still need to give it another go. These didn’t do scones their justice. I’m sorry scones. I’ll try harder next time.
