We will always have Scones.

I was not planning on making scones. I was planning on making an oatmeal breakfast bar.

When I was leaving the house this morning I thought to myself that I should double-check that I had all the ingredients. Bah! I assured myself that was unnecessary.

Well no I did not have that container of steel-cut oats I was sure was in the pantry. GRRRRRR.


Not a problem. I am adaptable. I scrolled through my Pinterest board and found 2 other recipes to try. Twice I get all the ingredients out except for the one missing ingredient.


I sense a pattern here.


More scrolling and more productivity. I cleaned out the cabinet of quite a few expired items. Cornmeal that was best used by 2016!!! Bye-bye!


By this time it was 9:30 pm. I googled ingredients that I had, Blueberries, Oranges, and Oatmeal (I had the old-fashioned and quick-cooking, just not the steel-cut). Guess what recipe popped up. Scones. Seriously. I do love scones but I thought just for one Friday night we could go a different route.

Scones it was. I found this recipe on Food.com. Blueberry Oat Scones. It got 6 stars in the rating so I give it a try.


Winner!! Another Scone recipe to be saved.
