Basic Scones


Here are my basic scones for January's Daring Baker's challenge. I really enjoy scones, and make them fairly often (at least, in comparison to how often I consume other breads, which isn't that frequently). I find that quick breads don't hurt my stomach as much, for whatever reason. Also, I really like anything that tastes primarily of butter. Especially with butter on top.

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup, with Pear

butternut squash soup
This soup does not contain bananas, but (quite against my will) my house does.

This is my favourite soup. It might be your favourite soup, too. It's also really easy if you already have a batch of home-made chicken stock in your house and you haven't contracted a fear of your immersion blender as a result of a horrible exhaustion-plus-stupidity-plus-walnut-pesto accident that landed you in the emergency room with the end of an immersion blender attached to the end of your arm.

Christmas Lamb 2011

lamb recipe
I didn't make dessert for Christmas dinner. It was just Jake and I, so I wanted to keep things simple. Thus, I replaced the normal Christmas elaborations in favour of eating POUNDS AND POUNDS OF LAMB.
