Pop quiz: How awesome am I? Very awesome. But why? Is it:
a) because I have conquered the scones! And now have six beautiful, perfectly not-sweet-but-not-bitter little diamonds of joy in an air-tight container in my kitchen! Three with blueberries! Wait, two because I ate one.
b) because I have also conquered Rarebit Risotto, a recipe I memorized/stole out of ‘s Moosewood Simple Suppers cookbook? Beer and broth and yumminess. And cheese! And risotto for at least two other meals.
c) because I did these things at the same time?
c.5) because I have also been doing laundry?
d) because I am now sitting outside — outside! it’s so gorgeous — on my very own patio thing in my very own chair (finally out of the car) watching the sun start to sink and it’s so, so nice out.
The lesson here is that I am very awesome. I’m sure many of you are awesome, too, but today, I win. The scone thing alone makes me kind of queen of my own world. I now have to eat them all so I can make more, and this time, I can experiment further. Cinnamon scones! Cranberry scones! Maple scones with nuts! I know at some point they stop being scones and start being cookies in diamond shapes, but… they are so beautiful and I am so happy!
