Can you pop over for a scone and a cup of tea?

This has been a busy week.

I enjoyed taking the Christmas decorations down and the fun of my January rearrange of the furniture. It is adorable in our vintage Chicago apartment right now.

We got Christy off to England and Jenny is back in her home ... after some wonderful family times together. (The house is quieter and cleaner.) And Dave is back to work and busy after two weeks vacation.

Later this morning, we are beginning a nine week Bible study at church, that I have been heading up. Our on.line registration last Sunday was 75 people. As of just a few minutes ago ... we are at 185. YIKES. 

And I am second guessing myself ... did I plan enough food? Rumor has it that another 20 can show up that did not register. 

I do not want to run out of these ...

These are delicious with apricots, but when I am making them for a crowd, I use dried cranberries ... no chopping.

And I am glad to be done with this ...


I am pretty sure there will not be a crumb left today, but stop by sometime and I will whip up a batch.

This is not the first time these delicious scones have been mentioned in my blog. Funeral Potatoes and White Chocolate Apricot Scones would make it into my top five favorite posts. You will find the recipe here.

Quote of the day:
me: (to my husband who really hates a messy kitchen) Babe, I am about to begin the 200 scones. I thought I should warn you that it is going to get messy in here.

Dave: As long as you bake 202 scones,  I will be okay.

  2. I like the "extra two scones" bribe!! What a task you took on. I once made 50 biscuits and thought I'd done well. They look delicious. Our tree will come down this weekend.

    Best,
    Bonnie

  6. Girl, tea and scones are my love language! *hee hee*

    What an awesome turn out for your Bible study. How blessed those ladies are to have you bake scones for them! It reminds me of The Mitford Series books by Jan Karon (have you read them?) where Cynthia (Father Tim's wife) hosts an annual tea for ladies from one end of the parish to the other.

    By the way, love your hubby's sense of humor!

  12. smart man -smile- and they do sound delicious! what's the Bible study, Glenda?

  13. So THAT'S why he made 200 scones. I've been making a Quaker Oatmeal scone recipe from my first Bible Study group, circa 1981, that still gets rave reviews every time. (first ingredient--1 cube of butter...I think that explains it.) My favorite to add is dried cherries. :-)

  16. You are very ambitious Glenda! If I could, I'd be # 186 on your list :) Not just for the scones, though they do sound/look amazing! Can't wait to hear how your study goes, I'll send prayers from the South!
    btw, my sister just moved to Chicago so I think I'll be making a few trips that way in the future :)

  24. The scones look amazing but more than the scones, I wish I could take your Bible Study and soak up your wisdom.
