It's a great pumpkin scone, Charlie Brown!
I'm so glad that it's Friday and that I don't have to work tomorrow. It's been a long week. I wasn't moving that well this morning, so instead of making my tea at home and taking it in my travel mug, I stopped at Starbucks. Anticipating that it would be a crazy day, I went for the big cup. =) The holiday cups are out, and those always seem so cheery.
Figuring everyone at work would also need a pick-me-up to get through the day, I made them some breakfast. I don't think I've brought this group scones before. King Arthur is one of my main sources for scone recipes, and they were featuring pumpkin scones this morning. I had canned pumpkin and cinnamon chips in the pantry, so I was all set. I'm definitely becoming a fan of freezing the scones before baking. The scones end up having a great texture--there were lots of raves at work. (Plus it works out--I can mix and shape the scones, throw them in the freezer, and shower while they chill and the oven preheats.) I had one person comment that she wanted to know what my pantry looks like, that I can whip up something like this on a moment's notice. =)
The only downside to the scones is that the nurse at Gillian's school was rather disturbed this morning. It seems that G picked up a stomach bug, and the nurse isn't used to the results from a student eating something orange for breakfast... So wish me luck for the weekend. I really hope no one else comes down with it and that our plans aren't derailed any more than they already have been. G is already on the mend and asking to eat something besides saltines because she's starving. Keeping my fingers crossed.
