I took some fun pictures of the yard yesterday, once the sun came out and made everything all sparkly. Lookit!
That's my rosemary. Do you think it will make it till spring?
That's the basil. I already know it's long dead.
Remember my gnarly tomato plants from summer? Yeah. That's them.

Hey! There's my friend Herb! It's actually the Hunny's friend Herb. Chocolate mint my mom gave him for his June birthday.
To really make the day grand, I hunted down a recipe for a treat my mom made often when I was growing up. It was always my favorite. Anyone out there ever make Welsh cakes? Because these were very yummy, but they fell apart. Not that anyone seemed to mind.
Here they are after being patted out and cut:
I substituted a third of the shortening with real butter, nice and cold from the fridge. Here they are in the pan:

I also used raisins and dried cranberries instead of currants. I didn't have currants. Here they are right before one is popped into my mouth:
They were incredibly yummy. Wanna see the recipe? I found it at Cooks dot com:
Essentially they're griddle cooked scones, instead of baked. Mmm. Perfect on a cold day home from school! Try them! You'll like them.
Until I write again ...
