Packaged Mixes

58.  The other evening I was so hungry for an egg frittata with zucchini and onions.  I had some frozen sausages and a package mix for scones.  Usually I like to make scones from scratch, but how nice to make dinner in about 45 minutes!  So, I cut up a zucchini and chopped a small onion to sauté and then added beaten eggs and cheddar cheese over the veggies.  I finish it off 
under the broiler to brown the top.

While that was cooking, I whipped together this scone mix.
  I am always a little leery of package mixes...they always have a certain taste =-(
 The recipe called for water but I used milk instead for flavor.
  I dropped them on
 parchment paper and they turned out beautiful.  But what about the taste?
...I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised.  They tasted beautiful without any butter or jam...but butter and mixed berry jam made them especially yummy.

And this is who came to the table for scones..even though he
wasn't invited!  
The brand name is "Sticky Fingers Bakeries"
You have to check out their site and see all the delightful flavors
of scones and other wonderful Gourmet Specialties!

"Oh, God above, if heaven has a taste it must be
an egg with butter and salt,
and after the egg is there anything in the world
lovelier than fresh warm bread 
and a mug of sweet golden tea?"
 ~ Frank McCourt

Hi Lilly, so glad I came,
Clicked the link of your blog name,
Its sort of fun - just like a game,
Every click brings you more fame.
And now I am here to bring you a rhyme,
I hope it rolls from the lips like a chime,
I pray you will like it - BIG TIME,
I hope you will find it pretty sublime,
For rhyme envy's not pretty,
So I've wrote YOUR OWN ditty,
Something unique and so witty,
Out of friendship not pity,
Now its time to wrap up my sweet lttle ode,
And now you've been bestowed,
I think I'll 'get on the road'
For my calendar is overflowed.

Thanks for your visit to my blog - yours is lovely TOO!

Your scones sound NUMMY! :)

♥ Barb
