We're having wintery weather with cold winds and freezing temperatures. Not totally unknown for this time of year but rain is more what we usually get. I have been feeling a little under the weather. Today I was resting and reading a cookbook ( I tend to read them as one would read a novel), and I came upon a recipe for low-fat scones. Now DH and I love our scones, and I'm always on the look-out for lower calorie recipes, so I made my way to the kitchen and mixed up a rather wet dough ( among other ingredients it called for a grated apple). I had a hard time patting it out and may have overworked the dough. The scones are edible but not great. I think I'll stick to my old recipe. In fact, that is often how it is when I venture away from the tried-and-true. I'm not an adventurous food-maker. I do it because I like to eat and I like to know what I'm eating. Nevertheless, DH and I will eat the scones... split, toasted, and with lots of jam!
