Mmmm, mmm, good...!

I've never really been much of a pastry person; I'm more of a salt than sweets kind of girl.
(If you've read my blog regularly or know me in "real life" then you know -- I'm all about peanut butter, cheese and Doritos.)

And yet, I've discovered a new love.
Let me be the first to say that I have discovered an appreciation for scones!
Oh. My.

The day before yesterday, before heading home - I had a headache and I hadn't eaten all day so I figured I'd stop at this little Irish bakery a few doors down from the new store. I saw they had scones and so I asked what kind; they had somewhere in the neighborhood of 12 different types! I wasn't sure what to try, but I went with a pineapple coconut one and let me tell you, it was amazing.

I know picking up a scone eating habit could be a problem -- unless of course I run them off (which, I am running a 5k this weekend - can't wait!) but there are worse problems to have. I think I'll try to keep my indulgences to once a week.

(Except for this week. I'm meeting my sister tomorrow a.m. for a quick cup of coffee and I may just have to try a different variety of scone while we're there. Maybe the orange and chocolate chip one...?)

I get a catalog from King Arthur Flour... it's a baking catalog. And, omg, they have all kinds of scone mixes and even scone pans!

Nichole! I miss you. Tell me you have time to make scones?!

Jenn, mmmm pumpkin sounds delish. I swear I'll get to call one of these a.m. Drives. This week is off kilter a bit.

Scones are superb! Nice heavy sort of baked good, grand with some butter or jam. Love them.

Yes, I'm totally digging them. I had the orange/chocolate chip one and truthfully - didn't love it. Definitely sticking to the pineapple/coconut. It was to die for.
