Oh, friends. I am exhausted. I am exhausted, and the floor in my living room is covered in scattered toys (many of which are painfully prickly to a bare foot) and beneath the toys, I am sure, despite my best efforts, is a fine layer of pee.
Shanah tovah, friends! We kicked off the new year by making not one, but two, of Smitten Kitchen's apple and honey challah (one to keep, the second for P1 to take to daycare to share with her friends and teachers. She was super resistant to the sharing bit until she saw how much challah we got to keep at home - these make big loaves). It was ambitious, but reminded me of just how awesome fresh homemade challah is.
These scones are a perfect grab and go breakfast for a busy weekday morning (aka, back to school time! Or pretty much every day around here). They're healthy and yummy and easy to whip up - I find myself baking a batch almost every other week. I make them so often that now I just keep most of the ingredients on hand (it's mostly pantry staples anyway).
Happy Labor Day, y'all! Grateful for this extra day off, even as we spend it cooped up inside, potty training a toddler who keeps expressing sadness at losing her diapers. Sigh. Hopefully your plans involved more fun and fewer arguments. If you're still trying to think of what to bring to your potluck/BBQ/picnic, I've rounded up some of our favorites from the archives and around the web. And if you have any potty training tips, please share them in the comments below!
