Scones disaster

Well, I tried. Somehow fruit scones always come out like biscuits when I make them. Cheese scones work but not fruit ones. Of course I didn’t have self raising flour so I used plain flour and baking powder – obviously not enough baking powder. I want tall, fat soft scones – any advice? Luckily I only made six and as my nutritionist said we shouldn’t be eating flour anyway they won’t last long.

A life without flour or sugar seems to me like a life not worth living, especially as I don’t have a food processor. Tomorrow is the day for oldies to use the supermarket between 9am and 10am. I’m out of tomatoes and we do like a salad lunch.

I have done two lots of washing today and written part of a continuous story that our writing group have started. I haven’t been out of the house but may take the dog to the end of the road for my exercise allowance. Not sure this picture fits this post.Diesel at xmas
