Hello again everyone
I may have submitted this recipe a few years ago, but since St. Patrick's Day is approaching I thought some of you might like it. These are easy to make and really good.

Irish Soda Bread Scones Recipe

2 cups flour
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking soda
6 tbsp unsalted butter chilled
1 tbsp caraway seeds
Ĺ cup raisins
2/3 cup buttermilk

Sift flour, sugar, salt, soda; add butter with a pastry blender for about a minute or until like coarse meal, then mix in raisins and caraway. Make a well in center and add buttermilk. Dough should not be dry.

Knead slightly until just holds its shape. Handle it very little.

Shape into an 8Ē disk. Cut in half, then cut in quarters. Dip tops in buttermilk then place on cookie sheet lined with parchment. Might sprinkle with a little sugar also before baking. 375įF for about 20 to 25 mins. Turn half way thru baking.

I have spent the last week looking for a part time job. None so far but am hopeful that something will come along soon. I am not one that likes to stay home for long periods of time. I enjoy being around people each day.

Green Daiquiri Punch Recipe

2 Cans Frozen Limeade Concentrate (thawed)
2 Cups Gatorade (lemon-lime flavor)
1 Cup Rum (I use Malibu because it has that extra tropical kick but you can use any light rum)
2 Cans Lemon-Lime Pop (Squirt is better than Sprite in my opinion, just sayin)

Mix Limeade, Gatorade and Rum in large pitcher. Put in fridge to chill for at least an hour. Right before serving, add pop and mix well. If youíre one of those with a fancy punch bowl thingy, pour in there or pour straight from pitcher over ice into glass! Add that little green cherry because itís just so darn cute and enjoy this Green Daiquiri Punch Recipe RESPONSIBLY!

I keep my cat's toys in a drawer and when they want one they let me know. Today Little One came to me and wanted me to open the drawer and choose a toy. I opened the drawer and instead of grabbing the toy he wanted he tapped the furry mouse toy. The only problem was it was the live mouse I had been looking for two days. It was hiding among all the toys. I did the only thing I could which was to scream and jump up on the couch. Little One, my former best black and white cat, grabbed the mouse and took it to the garage. He killed the mouse and I got rid of it. After looking closely at the mouse it was a very small field mouse. It sure looked bigger to me when it was alive. Anyway, Little One is back to being my best black and white cat again. Ditto was totally unconcerned about the whole mouse thing and slept through it all.

Cream Scone Recipe

2 c. flour
1 T. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
4 T. sugar
6 T. butter
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 c. cream, milk or half-and-half

In a mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. With a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a separate bowl, combine eggs and cream until well blended. Stir cream mixture into dry ingredients until they are moistened. Divide the dough into 2 8-inch rounds on a greased baking sheet. Cut the dough with a sharp knife into 8 wedges. Brush the top with milk and sprinkle on sugar. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes or until the scones are golden brown.

Today, as I was watching out of the my window, two little children were riding down the street on their new bicycles with training wheels. They appeared to be twins about 4 years old. It was the first time either had been on their bicycles with training wheels. It was easy to see the differences in their personalities. The boy got on his bike and told his mother he didn't need any help. He started down the sidewalk and went as fast as he could go. The girl wanted her mother to stay beside her as long as she could. Soon both were riding with ease on their bicycles. A little bit later the little boy fell off his bike. His sister stopped and carefully helped him up and and then got on her bike and started riding again. A few minutes later the little girl fell off her bike. The little boy didn't stop to help her up, he just went past her as fast as he could. It was interesting to see them interacted with each other.
