Remember that movie?
One of my all time favorites ever in my life?
One True Thing?
It was quite a bit about the seasons..and seeing Renée plant bulbs for her mom? Bawled my eyes out and still do.
I fell in love w/ Renée Z..
It's fallish in the trees..and in the amount of light we have..
but the light is astonishingly precious and glowing..
it's a glorious light like Quinachrodone Gold:)Quinn Burnt orange..
Quinn Sienna..Green Gold..Anthraquinoid Red (my new fave)..
We started putting some gardens to bed..they just looked so forlorn all crisp..we did get some rain..but I am happy what's done is done.
Our oven functions all seasons..
I went to the mall for 1 hour during my daughter's lunch break..she treated me to a Starbucks Moccachino..and she bought a lemon blueberry scone..
I had my proverbial bite..
the next day I was craving them..and went ahead for lemon/sultanas..
and then I thought..no lemon..
so I used a recipe I know we like..we have maybe 5 keepers..but I had sour cream..so thought of these.
I changed it up though..
I have a crush on Mary Berry..so instead of reg flour I used self rising..and added that vanilla bourbon sugar..very little..and added raw sugar crystals on top..MMMMM..
You pre-heat your oven to 400..
In a medium bowl mix your dry ings..with your fingers mix in the butter that you have coarsely grated..add the raisns..then add a mix that you have made with the egg and sour cream..with a fork..it will come together..
put the mix on a lightly floured surface..shape into a 7 inch round 3/4 inch thick.. and cut into 8 triangles..
place the triangles on your baking sheet that has parchment paper..you can brush the tops w/ cream or milk and add the raw sugar cristals..
Bake for ap.15 minutes..I place mine on the lowest shelf..and check..they may need a minute or two more..I also leave them uncovered for the whole first day and night.I don't like moist scones.
A scone for me=love..a treat..
The other thing I made because I wanted to..because Jacques sent me the recipe..;) was a beef and mushroom pie.I used this recipe and their crust too for this..even though I have THE recipe for pie crust etc..I now have THE recipe for savory..
and you do too now:)
Here is the link for the pie..and the link for the pastry is there also..
My notes for the pie..
I didn't do the flour and water thickener..I used Wondra.
I used a bouquet garni..
you can also use a processor.
the crust was perfect ...the filling too..the only problem w/ this is that he eats it..and this makes 4 meals..for him..so next time I will make smaller pies and freeze some.
I bought disposable aluminium tins..I only have the heart shaped pie glass dish that is a good size,all my others are so big.
All comfort foods.
Perfect perfect for this beautiful amazing landscape at the moment.
It's just out of this world.
And then this weekend..♥
Max is the local team♥
I only see #3..always.
My son-in-law is assistant coach..you could not ask for a gentler giant for the kids..Justin their friend coaches soccer..same thing:)
Did anyone say #3?:)
Oh he glows:)
He's got his own glow:)And I love that his cleats are orange..I can spot him from afar.
This is when I would love a full frame w/ a great sport/zoom lens.
