Scones are the muffin’s sophisticated brother-in law. They look rustic (rustic=acceptably messy, homemade but still presentable) and when you enjoy them with tea, you feel official.
Fun fact: Scones are actually pronounced scones in England, according to my friend. If she’s wrong, contact me and I’ll give you her email so you can yell at her.
I can’t believe I haven’t written about oatmeal yet! It’s a staple in my life! It’s the breakfast I eat most often. Even if I don’t want to eat it and my mom made it, I’m gonna have to eat it anyway. She always tells me I need to eat something that “sticks to my ribs”.
My favorite flavor of oatmeal is Maple Brown Sugar, but this is much better than those prepacked to-go oatmeal packs. Why you ask?
Because it is.
Well spring break is over. Back to five hours of sleep and rushed mornings. One valuable thing school has taught me is how to get ready in under 30 minutes. I usually sleep through four alarms. Currently, the only alarm that works is my mom yelling at me.
I don’t really have the time to make a fresh breakfast in the mornings, so on Sundays, I usually make muffins and put them in the fridge. Then in the mornings, I take one or two and pop them in the microwave to warm them up and grab them along with my cup of tea. I usually grab a banana as well, because without it my stomach seems to grumble the loudest in the quietest parts of class.
For my first recipe, I wanted to start off with something everybody loves, and more importantly, something that’s hard for me to mess up. And you’re talking to a girl that falls walking up the stairs.
