Currant Caraway Scones for Breakfast

Well, good grief.  We have been so sick at our house!  Everyone, I'm sorry to say, and even as I type this, the baby has a stuffy nose and Ben has a sore throat and fever.  But that is manageable compared to the stomach flu that went round and round for two weeks, starting when my husband went down with the real-deal influenza.

So you can understand why I've been so silent here, just keeping up with the dailies which included lots of laundry and lots of special diets for the sickies.

I do have a backlog of photos, so let's see if I can kick out more posts soon (oh, and my laptop died and now I have a new one, so I had to struggle through that thicket, too).

Let's start with simple and quick:  these are "currant" (raisin) scones with caraway seed, split open with slices of mellow pear and nutty-sweet Irish cheddar (Dubliner), drizzled with honey.  Can I get an amen?  Yes, a wonderful breakfast with thanks to Martha Stewart for the idea.

That sounds very nice, Margo. So, the nice Irish cheese tastes nutty and Sweet? I almost bought some yesterday. Hmm.

Hope you'll all be yourselves soon. :)

Yes, Amen! For the Downton Abbey series finale I made chocolate-chip & crystallized ginger scones, topped with a bit of brushed-on buttermilk and Himalayan salt, which I enjoyed with a dollop of Greek yogurt. And then I froze the rest! So delicious. Scones are a favorite treat. These were special edition--I'm usually more in the dried fruit camp.

Hope you are ALL on the mend asap!

Oh dear, hope you're all feeling better soon.

And currant scones with cheese, pear and honey for breakfast sounds like a very good idea :)

Your breakfast looks wonderful.

Ugh, Margo, so sorry about all the sickness. It's amazing how Mom/Wife keeps going, right? Wish you were here, it's so lovely outside. Spring has come early this year. Love to all.
