Tonight, I came home from work and got back to work. I started by trying to figure out what I could make for supper. I was starving. It had been a long day with only porridge, soup, and an apple. I needed more sustenance. So, I got back to work in the kitchen and found that the only meat that wasn’t quite out of date was in fact the chicken pieces. Firstly, I made the taco seasoning and then I seasoned the chicken with it and let it all marinate while I prepared everything else. While that marinated, I began to make salsa. The salsa could then get added on to the chicken tacos to make them even tastier.
And while the salsa was refrigerating, I began to make the scones. I tried a slightly different recipe tonight. Instead of working the flour, baking soda, and butter together by hand, I used the food processor like Mary Berry suggests in her Devonshire scones recipe. And, I even remembered to put the sugar in before the milk and eggs. Once again, the scones didn’t quite rise the way I hoped, but it was much better than last time. They still are a bit flat but the middles at least has a little rise to them. So, not perfect, but it is getting better. More importantly, I came home and just began working on the food and even did a little baking. Yes, it took a long time, but we had an amazing supper because of it. I’m a little proud of myself today.
