I made some chocolate-chip scones and raspberry-cardamon-oatmeal muffins last weekend for a brunch date. Fruit and almonds were on the side along with coffee and juice. The scones were plain, I just added chocolate chips to the dough and cinnamon-sugar on top. For the muffins I used plain white flour, but I decreased it by 1/2 cup and added 1/2 cups oats, about a cup of frozen raspberries, and about 1/4 teaspoon cardamon. Not too much of that spice— I love it, but the kids don't. Well, they do, but only in small amounts. These muffins were a winner for sure. I was going in to use whole wheat flour for both of these baked items, but got all crazy and went for the white flour because it was a brunch date. I'm living on the edge.
Two things made me laugh out loud over on the Rumpus this week-
I read a lot of Pema (too much?) and I thought this was so dang funny.
The Ted Wilson column makes me laugh really hard every time I read it. I usually read it out loud and never know when I will crack up and lose it and have to stop reading but I always do.
