Scones and getting stuff done

So I have a habit a bad one, well actually a bad two (well actually a lot but I am only talking about two today).

1. I tend not to start stuff and to procrastinate on things rather than getting into them


2. I tend to get 95% of things done and not finish the last 5%.

The thought occurred to me as I was making my first ever batch of scones. I have always been daunted for some reason by scones. Perhaps it was the fact that the CWA always used to make the best scones at all the local shows I used to attend as a kid. Somehow I built them up in my mind as being difficult when in fact I have discovered they are very easy …

I have also noticed this has hit me with this blog. I have some ideas for a post and then seem to manage to put myself off writing it. To hard other things to do (what other things? Even I don’t know). Or I get started and get to within the last little bit and then manage to find reasons for not finalizing it.

So basically it is time for me to hard the …. up and get on with it. On that note the recipe for scones is as below.

Speak to you all a little more often I hope.

Basic Cheese Scones.

  • 2 cups of self-raising flour
  • Tablespoon of butter
  • ½ tablespoon of sugar
  • ½ cup of tasty cheese grated.
  • ¼ cup of parmesan grated.
  • Pinch of salt
  • 300ml of milk
  • 1 egg

Sift flour, sugar and salt together. Pinch in cheeses and butter till the flour mix resembles coarse bread crumbs. Add lightly whisked eggs and milk and combine. Turn out on floured surface and knead quickly (apparently too much kneading makes them tough). Roll dough to 1 inch thick and cut using a cutter. Place on greased tray in an pre heated oven at 220 degrees Celsius for 10 -12 minutes.
