snow day

In march of all times. This place never ceases to amaze me with its weather capabilities.
We got four raised beds completed thursday with the arrival of the dirt. Then the rain began. And it rained and rained and rained. Then the rain turned to snow. So I made scones.
Which look more hearty and rustic than high quality but oh, did these ever taste good. These are the Orange Scones from Vegan with a Vengeance, though I subbed lemon for the orange in all places for lack of one. I expect the orange variety will be yum as well.

I also subbed whole wheat flour for the AP flour called for. I have ceased to buy any flour that isn't Bob's Red Mill and until we get a flour mill and start grinding our own (someday, when I have some semblance of spare time again) I don't think I will buy any other. The whole wheat flour is awesome for the hearty bread I make as well as for the baked goods we use it for. Sift it well and it should be good to you.

P.S. the corn meal makes an awesome cornbread as well. Future post!
