Week 21 Thursday (6/5/14)

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location:                    Sweet Cinnamon Scones
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 147 calories per serving, if 38 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

You can see the cinnamon chips!
(I found them at Walmart near the chocolate chips)

         I am turning into a scone freak thanks to Ree!  These are totally different than the last type, but I still love them. The last scones had a frosting so I automatically thought that they had to be better than these but I love these for different reasons. These scones are so amazing with a hot cup of tea. I think the best part about them is how the bold cinnamon taste compliments the tea. They are so darn good!  Another plus is the low calorie count because I made them smaller. This size is satisfying and perfect for a mid morning snack.

I LOVE orange flowers and this one is a garden showstopper. This is generally called a Butterfly Plant.         
         The botanical name is: asclepias tuberasa
         They attract butterflies
         The grow about 24 – 36 inches tall
         You should plant them about 12 – 18 inches apart
         They will spread throughout you garden after about year three
         They love full sun – the hotter the better
         The blooms appear from June – July – mine have lasted into August                           
               in some years
         They like dry fertile soil
         The first year they grow slowly but after that year they grow and spread and
               are awesome.                                  
Irksome Ideas and Images

         After I put my previous two shelties to sleep, I became involved with the Humane Society of the United States. I have a real problem with puppy mills. No animal should be locked in a small cage for its entire life and bred every year until the mothers are a mess. Those poor animals live an awful life and suffer each and every day. I donate money each month to help with the cause of saving abused and neglected animals.
         Remember our four footed friends.
