So, I found out yesterday that the shape of my scones are wrong. My friend, author Gini Koch, happens to be a connoisseur of the scone and tells me that they're round like a cookie. You just drop the dough on a cookie sheet and let it puff up and bake in more interesting shapes then making a big blob like a giant cookie and then slicing it like a pizza. I couldn't have been more shocked to find out she knew how to bake something (She isn't what we'd call someone who likes to cook or bake, but I love her anyway).
And here's a shameless book plug for her. "Touched by an Alien" is an awesome book and "Alien Tango", which releases on December 7th, is even BETTER! It's all about the 'Gators, baby! So get them and read them. *shameless book plug is now over* (Thanks for the scone advice, oh awesome one!)
Now I can't wait to make scones again, which is why they're in my Christmas Baking line-up. Because, yes I am sick, and have already planned out what I'm baking this year. I'm as bad as 3ft when it comes to Christmas excitement.
I'm pleased to report that I did do crunches and push ups yesterday. I was going to break out my Wii but by the time I got 3ft and Mr. Grumpybutt settled down and in bed, I was so exhausted after another early morning, I just sank into the couch and there I stayed until my husband woke me up to go to bed.
Today, the Wii will be used. I promise.
