Image: Scone with Clotted Cream and Fresh Strawberries

Scone-(5945)

We had a couple of scones lately for tea. I’m loving this British afternoon tea tradition! Everything looked so pretty so I asked J to take some snaps. This is one of them, which I plan to turn into a large poster and hang it in the kitchen space. I wish I could say that I don’t eat these often. But lately I couldn’t resist. I know I know…I shouldn’t and I am following your advice – for the time being that is. Scones go with almost everything – my favourites are either with a teaspoon of vanilla extract in some whipped double cream and layered with strawberries (see photo) or if I could choose a dessert before I die it would have to be a scone with clotted cream and golden syrup. If you have not tried this before, please do. Just once.

A month ago we had a tennis fiesta in Wimbledon and very recently we had brilliant Olympic tennis, also in Wimbledon. Need another excuse? Nope!
