skʊn - #728

Mrs jb's been baking scones.

"skʊn" as in "on"

Not ˈ"ōn as in "disown".

The Americans call them biscuits, which is quite strange.

They have them with gravy, which is even strangerer.

We have ours with Tayberry Preserve from the Hi-Rise Bread Company in Cambridge, MA (or Mrs Frank the Potter's homemade strawberry jam) with whipped cream on a Nigel Lambert plate with tea from a Pascal Balay tea bowl.

Very nice, too.

Sounds divine. Only in the South do they have biscuits wiyh gravy. Jam and Preserves in the rest of the country.

Hey, Welcome Back!! It's been way too long, and of course, you returned with food!

Since tomorrow is my birthday, I'll consider your return a gift. 9/11 is a lousy day for my natal day, but I'll just make it a birthday week.

Well you can just "hush up" about gravy and biscuits! IT's mighty fine but we are also "cultured" enuff to appreciate biscuits/scones with whatever. I LURV a scone and believe it or not, we have bakeries down here that can bake a mighty fine theah!
