VeganMofo day #10 - Scones slathered in kiwi jam ectoplasm

Day # 10 in Vmofoville and I have to say I was getting a bit tired and afraid that I wasn't going to figure out what to make next. Not that I don't have a huge shelf filled with cookbooks that are underutilized - Hey, I know I'm not the only one in that situation.

Then for some reason I got energized. I'm sure it wasn't from picking up dog poo outside. Was it these super delicious easy to make Classic Currant Scones from The Joy of Vegan Baking? I totally think so. It made around 10 decently sized scones. I used the rest of the Trader Joe's dried fruit mix (cran, blueberry, golden raisin) instead of currants. The goo you see next to the scone is kiwi jam that I made from a VT recipe last month. I like the jam even w/ the issues I had w/ the recipe (totally my fault).



I think dinner will be tacos again because the avocado is ripe and I love tacos.

I also had a long chat w/ my mother on the phone today. She gave me some ideas of what to do to fix my bread making issues. I guess I will give it one more try. sigh. I also got some info on some of my lineage. I'm so clueless w/ all that.

The scones look great. I'm always skeptical about scones because the ones I've had have always seemed like dried out muffins. I guess I should really give them a shot.
Then I should call my mom..and send her some scones...
