I buy baked goods with some regularity if I’m not feeling too austere because I love baked goods and breakfast goodies in particular. Yesterday while at the store I compared prices and realized that buying and baking the scones was cheaper and as it is finally cool here in the mornings (still far too hot all day) I bought some to bake this morning. Somehow however I feel like a poser making scones from a cardboard tube when I don’t just buying them outright.
I like baking. I like baking scones amongst other things. I don’t like cleaning up after baking I admit and I sometimes begrudge the amount of time it takes – usually after the fact. I will proudly present muffins to my husband only to have him say, “It’s eleven o’clock at night. It’s a bit late for muffins don’t you think?” My pride then falters a bit as I realize my evening has vanished and although I do have muffins to show for it I had other things planned as well.
