Last night’s dinner?

Uh..no. These are the pickles that I posted the recipe for a few days ago. Been taking care of my mom the past few days and haven’t been able to find time to post.

Last night we actually had a nice pot roast and yorkshire pudding. It was weird. This is totally winter food but it was exactly what we wanted. We didn’t eat until the bobo was asleep and True Blood was on. Yummy beef and good looking vampires. What a combo.

Tonight’s dinner

It’s leftover potroast today but I’m making a nice loaf of Irish Scones to go with it. I got this recipe about twenty years ago while watching “The Victory Garden” on PBS. This recipe has never let me down and paired with a bowl of soup it just can’t be beat. You can add a handful of shredded sharp cheese or chopped herbs if you like. If you add raisins it is called spotted dog.

Mix in a medium bowl; 4 cups of flour, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. baking soda.

Add 1 1/2 cup buttermilk (I never have this so I just take milk and sour it with a splash of vinegar). Barely mix it and form into a large round loaf. It should be about four inches tall. Place on a cookie sheet. Score the top with an x and place in a 350 degree oven until when tapped on the bottom it sounds hollow (likely 15 minutes). You can also brush the top with egg and dip the top into grated cheese.

If there are any leftovers this is really nice when you toast it.
