Here's our breakfast:
Here's the original recipe for the scones I found. I totally revamped the recipe, so here's what I made:
First heat the oven to 420 degrees. Add the first 1/2 of the ingredients in a large bowl, and mix well. I sometimes add a Tablespoon of Chia Seeds, which are not mentioned in the recipe. Add the wet ingredients in a small bowl, and mix well. Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Pour it out onto a baking stone, or a sprayed pan (it will be sticky). Form it in a flat circle. Cut it into 4 to 6 pieces. It does tend to puff up a bit. The pieces you cut may need to be cut again in 1/2 once it's baked. Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes clean.
*Note you can replace the dried cranberries with other dried fruit to give it a different flavor. Seeds, almond slivers, or chopped walnuts can be added. I've used different extracts in this recipe. They've all tasted good.
The boys asked for seconds. Daddy who doesn't like when I experiment liked it to.
Then Mica got a chance to Skype. I've never Skyped before. One of his best friends moved 2 hours away. Luckily I'm friends with his mom on Facebook, so we made arrangements for them to Skype. It was funny because they kept getting toys from their rooms to show each other.
Hopefully we can get our new floor partly put down today. We tore up one floor before our vacation and two floors after that. We went through 90s, 70s and got down to scraping up paper/glue. One more reason to pause our project is that we had to send in samples to be tested for asbestos. It's something we didn't think of. Anyhow it does have 2% in it. We just proceeded to scrape the glue tape up and left the 50s floor that has the asbestos in it. Scraping has taken FOREVER, and it's hard work. Then there was some type of cement on the sides. Daddy had to get that up to. This project has turned out more than we expected. I guess every home project is like that.
Needless to say I'm so happy this project is moving. My allergies have been so bad, and I imagine that scraping glue/paper up hasn't helped them!
Now we finally have two chalk lines down and the big square tiles are upstairs. I think the boys think this is our new floor. LOL Isaak said, "Mom I liked our floor better before." They think it's pretty interesting that our table is in the living room.
Tonight it's firework time. We bought $50 worth, which isn't a lot, but it's some. Our neighbors in the back always have a big show anyhow.
What are you doing today? Anything special?
