I have a sweet recipe to share if you want to show those around you some love...
and a very funny story behind these scones. Two years ago, I was racing to head out of town with my mom. It was our second year in a row going to Miraval, and I was feeling like Supermom. The morning of our flight I woke up early and baked a batch of scones for my younger son's class... realizing too late that I had used salt instead of sugar in the first batch. But did I throw them away? No. I still wanted to be Supermom (and make my flight), so I cut a sliver off each one, trying to figure out which had come from the doozy first batch and which were from the normal second batch and I sent them in to school.
To say they were a failure would be an understatement. In fact, I am pretty sure the teacher told me they were like salt licks. Hey, you win some you lose some. As long as you try. Speaking of... all of you busy moms try awfully hard 365 days a year. How about today you find a little time to show yourself some love? A walk with a friend, a virtual or real coffee date, maybe something as decadent as a facial or a massage? I kind of got a jump-start on that today, and I plan to continue it tomorrow... what you doing to take good care and love your (awesome, Supermom) self today?
