The news started popping up on some of my favorite blogs:
And what was the cause of all their excitement?
It was International Scone Week!
Each of the bloggers shared a recipe or two (or three) of their favorite scones:
- Tandy, at Lavender and Lime, actually shared three recipes: Pistachio, Traditional, and Buttermilk
- Robbie shared her recipe for a Bacon and Avocado Scone
- Carol at Retired! shared a recipe for a Banana Scones with Coffee Drizzle Scone
Scones are one of my favorite treats; I remember my mom used to make traditional Irish soda bread/scones with raisins and caraway seeds. (I’m not really what the difference is between Irish soda bread and scones, but it doesn’t matter to me – it’s delicious either way.)
So you can imagine my excitement when I learned there was a whole week devoted to scones.
Now I am not the baking type, but I do know a place that sells great vegan scones – a Farmers’ Market not too far from us.
So I picked up one earlier this week, and it lived up to my lofty expectations. The scone and a cup of Dunkin’ coffee, and I was in heaven.
When I mentioned to another blogging friend, Carolyn, that it was International Scone Week, she said she would give up her scone so I could have a second one, and that is what I did today.
And while I was trying to learn more about International Scone Week (I only found lots of recipes), I did learn that there is also an International Scone Day – May 30.
But there’s no need for the Farmers’ Market to worry – I am sure I will be back often between now and then…
And all of this is just further evidence of why I love the WordPress blogging community 🙂
