Cheese Scones

Warning: you may find this blog post a little cheesey!

Cheese scones are simply the best! Delicious straight from the oven, layered with butter, these humble scones are truly comforting.

Today I am in need of some comfort, as during the week I sprained one of my glute muscles.  I am treating the pain with anti-inflammatories, panadol, and rest.  I am also adding a touch of doing some of the things that make me happy.

Inspired by a book I recently read, and my daughters, I am continuing to follow my passion of food. The book called The Secret by Rhonda Byrne, was recommended to me by a couple of people.  It’s a self-help book, and friends that know me well, know how much I love self-help!.  I’m not sure if that means I love helping myself or whether it’s my inquistive nature to learn more about human behaviour.

Put simply, The Secret is about the Law of Attraction. It’s about concentrating on what you really want and visualising the end result! If you believe in yourself (and the book) you can do anything you really really want to do.

And today, it just so happened that I really wanted to make really good cheese scones!  I have frequented a couple of local cafes, which make delicious cheese scones and have often thought I must make them myself one day.  Today my scones hit the mark! Light, tasty and truly delicious.

I’m hoping you will try making these are they are so easy!
