On Facebook over the past few weeks, my newsfeed has been flooded with lists of what is making people happy each day. As I haven’t yet jumped on board over on Facebook, I’ve decided to put together my own list of what has been making me happy this week.
My little Tiger – Just one look at this photo and you can see why this picture makes me smile every time I look at it. It’s one of my favourite pictures of our Big Boy… so cheeky!
Friendship – I’m incredibly lucky to have found a wonderful new friend. It’s amazing the beautiful friendships you can discover in the most unsuspecting places.
Rainbows – One of the boys “Sleepy Songs” is Over the Rainbow so you can imagine how excited we all were when we spied a real rainbow last week!
Scones – I’ve been experimenting with these little gems this week. trying a few different flavours and combinations. What I also love about them is they are a great recipe to make when I have a cranky Toddler to entertain. I’ve tried a few different scone recipes over the years, and this is my favourite no fail scone recipe.
No Fail Scone Recipe
- 4 cups of self raising flour
- pinch of salt
- ¼ cup of butter - chilled and cubed.
- 2 ⅓ cups of milk
- Preheat oven to 230 degrees, and line a baking tray with baking paper.
- Sift the flour and salt together in a large bowl.
- Rub the cubed butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles breadcrumbs.
- Slowly add approximately 2 cups of milk whilst gently mixing in with butter knife. If your mixture is still a little dry, add a bit more milk.
- Once dough is starting to come together, pour onto floured bench. Using your hands, gently bring the dough together and flatten slightly.
- Cut out your scones using a round cutter, and place close together on the tray.
- Brush a little milk over the top of scones before placing in the oven for 13 minutes.
- To test is scone is cooked, it will make a hollow sound when the bottom is tapped.
