George the big Oxford ram is currently in residence in his bachelor quarters living a celibate existence while his woolly harem are (we hope) preparing for the imminent ( we hope even more) arrival of their adorable little offspring. An overload of cuteness photos promised as soon as four little cloven hooves touch the ground.
Today I realized that maybe I had been thinking American too long ! Foolishly using a British recipe to make British scones my Anglo American brain registered that preheating the oven to only 180 degrees was strange...but never one to question authority (well, not often) I popped the dough into the barely warm, waiting oven and expectantly anticipated my golden brown, vanilla and raisin masterpieces to appear. Not. Twenty minutes later, I still had soggy raisin and vanilla dough sadly still looking like soggy vanilla and raisin dough on the baking sheet. No one told me that British recipes use Celsius not Fahrenheit....well, not recently ! British Scones (2nd effort, I'm not one to give up easily) made using an American recipe, look JUST like Mum's. Happy ( and still snuffling).
Enjoy the photos..a beautiful day on the ranch today...
Take care, keep safe and well. M xx
