Hi Threeb.  Just checking in to see if you ventured out to the grocery store so that you could do some baking.

Well, yes, I DID go to the store, as a matter of fact ... but the hubby distracted me from my original quest. However, I think I'll go ahead and make some scones per the recipe I received a while back from our expert little scone-makers here on the forum. The jam is ready and waiting!  :-H

Hi threeb... :-*

did you manage to get some cream?
Whipped thick double cream might suffice....

Yes, dear! Except it didn't come from Devonshire, as the original recipe called for, but it will have to do for now!  :angel:

Ok, well done...
When the scones are made, leave them to cool while you make the tea....then split the scones in half.....spread each half with a thick layer of cream, then dollop girt big spoonfuls of the jam on top. Pour the tea, and eat away....
I am sooo jealous....

With your cooking talents, just go out and make some quick!

Your guests would enjoy them, too!

By the way, how's that going? Are you having fun (I hope)???  :angel:

It's too late now i fear...at 1/4 to 1...
It's going good...
We had a very wet day, but got out this morning and went to see Hairspray this afternoon, had supper and chatted...
Our meal last night was lovely.
Hopefully we will get out tomorrow too..weather permitting...

Hairspray -- Was it the play or the movie?

I saw the older version of Hairspray with Divine and Rikki Lake -- that was such a hoot! John Waters was the director -- Mr. Weirder than Andy Warhol! But I heard that John Travolta was really quite amazing, too, in the new movie version, as a woman!

Very aromatic and delightful -- better than the dinner (shrimp alfredo w/pasta)!

This rain is really starting to get ON MY NERVES! (sorry - I suffer from bad weather affective disorder, otherwise called SAD)

Sorry to hear that it's still raining where you are.  It's really sunny here today.  I've heard that if you turn lots of lights on in your house it can help with SAD.  It's worth a try, at any rate.

Your dinner sounds like it was amazing.  I'll have to try the recipe sometime...All of this talk about food is making me hungry.  I'm off to lunch now.  Be back soon.
