Its been a busy couple of weeks-I’ve been trying to organize and clean our house and there will be the much anticipated ‘decorating’ with Fall-themed items. (Yes, I am turning into a WASP-Y house wife, so sue me!) I love this time of year; The weather is perfect-not too hot and its not -40 yet! (Woo!) I’ve also been cooking some comfort foods and after reading all the comments admiring the scones from Point Ellice House, I decided to make my own:
Scones are a big deal in my mother’s Scottish family-My mom isn’t big on cooking or baking, but her grandmother was and used to make the most amazing scones. For my first attempt, I made basic ones with raisins and sprinkled sugar on top. I think they turned out o.k. Their supposed to be shaped like triangles, but many of them turned out more like mutated circles. (I think next time, I’ll make them in dinosaur shapes, just for fun. LOL)
I also made a half whole wheat crust pizza and added the chopped up the hot banana pepper in the pot in our backyard to it.
Its nice to know that a few things other than weeds are growing in our backyard. As for the last food item, I made chocolate cupcakes with chocolate buttercream icing and sprinkles. Their for a work BBQ today.
Don’t worry, these aren’t all that I made, there is another bigger container with eight more cupcakes. If you’re feeling like chocolate, the recipe is here.
Last weekend, hubby and I went to Bruce Pitt for awhile. The bugs were awful, so we didn’t stay long, but on our way back, I spotted this dumbass and his douchemobile:
Yep, nothing says “winner” like a cheesy paint job and creepy spider on the side of your car. Why are there so many guys like this anyway? Don’t they get tired of trying so hard? As you can see, another hobby of mine is taking pictures of weird/ugly/neat cars and equally quirky licence plates. So, I’ll be posting more in the future. 🙂
