The other week, Andrea brought home a packet of Scone Mix and said we were going to Do Cooking again!!! I like cooking!! I like eating what we cooked better though!!
First, we emptied the Scone Mix into a Big Bowl..... just like making bread!
Then we had to add a bit of milk. Hmm, this is easy.....
Then we had to mix it all together until it looked like this!! That was messy...
Then we decided to add some sultanas and raisins because Andrea says Scones taste better with them in. We had to mix it all together again....
after that, we were supposed to roll out the mix and cut out the scones with a round cutter thingy. We didn't have a round cutter thingy, but since the packet said that it was enough mix to make eight scones, we just divided it all up into eight round-ish thingies!! Then we put them in the oven and cooked them!!!
They came out looking like this!!!
We had one for pudding after our dinner!! We cut it in half, and spread some butter and jam on each half and ate it all up!! Andrea says that in Quaint English Tea Rooms, you can have Scones with Jam and thick cream on top!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want to go to a Quaint English Tea Room!!!! Please please please! Can we??!

A few weeks ago, Andrea was walking up the road and she found this book on the pavement!! Somebody had either dropped it or lost it or something, so she picked it and brought it home to read to me and Tango at bedtimes. It's a really good book too, an adventure story that starts on a pirate ship in the China seas and then goes on a big trek through Mongolia and Tibet! It's really exciting!
And then a few days after she found that book, she went for another walk and found a box on somebody's wall with a sign saying "Help yourself" and a whole pile of books inside!! She picked these three...
...and we just finished reading them last night!!! Shipping News is set in Newfoundland and about a single Dad who works in Journalism, Time for a change is about a family where they think Dad had an affair but he didn't, and No Angel was our favourite!! It's about a family of book publishers set from 1900 up to the 1920s flapper age, how things are never how they appear and it has some REALLY good twists at the end!!! At least twice, we all shouted "OOOOOOHHHHH!!!!!" out of surprise!!
We have these listed on our bookcrossing shelf (I think if you scroll all the way down the bottom, you'll find our bookcrossing link) so if anyone would like to read one, please leave a comment here!
