Heeey everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!! I sure did! We relaxed, had family time, and went to church. My cat even had some relaxation time with dad:
TWO remotes! 😀
Before I forget to mention it, I got an awesome workout in on Friday! A few weeks ago, I cam across this circuit, and let me say, it doesn’t look that hard, but by the fourth time you are doing pushups, it IS!!!! 😀
Today’s a busy day for my mom, so I thought I’d tackle breakfast. I made my first-ever scones!!!! They were actually pretty easy to throw together, and everyone seemed to like them! I confess that I haven’t actually eaten one yet, but will for a post-workout treat! 😀 Anyway, here’s the recipe that I used:
Banana Scones (adapted from Food.com)
- 2 cups flour
- 3 T brown sugar (packed)
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 6 T butter
- 8 T milk (I ended up adding a little more)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2/3 cup diced banana
Preheat oven to 400°F Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Cut butter into a few chunks and rub it into the flour mixture with your fingertips.
Mix milk and vanilla in a small glass. Add the banana chunks and continue to stir, adding more milk if necessary, until dough comes together.
Pat dough into a disk about 1 inch thick. Cut into eight sections with a knife and place each on baking sheet.
Bake at 400F for 17-20 minutes, until light gold. I also made some homemade coffee creamer! My mom loves it, and since this is both her birthday and her wedding anniversary month, I thought I’d make her a special treat! It was actually super easy! All I did was combine 1/2 C milk, 1/4 to 1/3 C sweetened condensed milk (I didn’t measure exactly :P) and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract! Then, I shook everything up and voila we have vanilla coffee creamer!
That’s about it for me today…. What does your week look like?
