Sunday Breakfast

Imagine being in a house with the smell of freshly-baked scones and bacon wafting through the air…

I, of course, did not have to imagine it – it was my house! Victor has been plotting a frittata for breakfast all week. It started with me cutting up some peppers and having him ask me to save some. It kinda grew from there.

Red and green peppers, asparagus, kalamata olives, bacon, potatoes, garlic, ricotta cheese… Just little bits of this-n-that that were in the ‘fridge. The perfect assortment of flavors.

We were fresh out of bread for toast – I’m going to be baking that later on today – so Victor threw together some cherry scones to go along with the frittata.

It’s rough living in our house.

Cherry Scones

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup dried cherries
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 egg

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Mix dry ingredients. Cut in butter. Stir in raisins. Mix sour cream and egg and stir into flour mixture.

Place on a lightly floured surface and pat into an 8″ circle about 3/4-inch thick. Sprinkle a bit of sugar.

Cut into 8 wedges and place on a parchment-lined sheet pan. Bake about 15 minutes or until nicely browned.

A great way to start the day. It’s the perfect sustenance to get us through comfy-chair shopping, today.

Yeah… we need to go shopping. Our leather La-Z-Boy has seen better days. Springs have sprung and it’s finally beyond repair – or comfortable sitting. I love the look of the chair, so here’s hoping we can find something similar.

It’s a sad state of affairs when we would rather leave the house to go furniture shopping than watch the Super Bowl.
