    Jolly Olde Thursday #491

    Wow, It's time to sit down and watch some Olympics!

    (Didn't they just have the winter games last week?)

    I think tea, scones and some Guiness is apropo.......

    What does kidney pie taste like?

    DONE!

    I've had Haggis, but not kidney pie! Definitely tea and scones, are in order!

    Richard, thanks for opening up the bar. I just love the Olympics and I can hardly wait for the Opening Ceremonies to begin. Let's all hope for a wonderful series of events and that all goes well.

    Richard, could you hold this place on the sofa in front of the tv for me - I'm going to get some tea and scones to enjoy while I watch the ceremonies. Can I get you anything?

    I was going to let you sit on my lap, but I jump up and down way too much.

    Yes, you can sit down and let me get you something. Scones and Earl Grey?

    Done!


    (The opening soccer games have been pretty good so far!)

    Happy,

    There you go, get all international on us!

    Thanks and Done!

    Karen,

    Chai and blueberry or cherry scones?

    DONE!

    Funny scone story?

    We used to do a breakfast every so often in our office. People would volunteer to bring stuff in and one rather 'frugal' gal always made scones.

    Until I had a proper scone - this gal damaged my primary scone experience - I was under the impression that they were something like hardtack.

    At the end of the meal people we'd package up the the leftovers and put them into the fridge.

    Every two weeks the fridge would get cleaned out.

    Those scones were just as pliable two weeks later as the day she brought them in!

    Yikes, what the heck did she do to them? Leave out the cream and leavening and over bake? I am glad you have since experienced the real things!

    I dunno, but those were the nastiest baked goods I ever had.

    I thought if there ever was a fire in the building, I could have used them to break the plate glass windows to escape.

    Blueberry cake in the oven - okay, cake(s) as I went to make one for my brudder-in-law's 40th birthday party, and realized my 11x13 pans are all in storage, so one 9-inch square one, and a spare 4 inch shallow one are now baking! The whole place smells yummy! Anyone want some ... ?

    I'll set out the plates, fork napkins and finest china for some tea!

    Great bicycle races and the gal that won her 5th straight medal in shooting!
