Strawberry Barley Scones

Sorry to have disappeared for a bit. Last week I got a migraine that lasted almost three days before it started turning into a regular headache. Then the next few days were spent catching up on housework, laundry etc. Over the weekend we had to take our computer back to Denver to have a part replaced, so it has been a busy, and definitely not normal week. This week is off to a much better start. Yesterday we made these Strawberry Barley Scones from the book Good to the Grain. She does a great job of describing the unique flavours of the different kinds of flours out there, and I am really excited to make more from this book. These scones were really, really good. Since we first got married, every Valentines Day Hubby and I have always cooked together after the kids have gone to bed. It started out as a way to celebrate without spending a lot of money on eating out when we didn’t have any extra cash and it has remained our tradition whether times were lean or not. I love to cook with him and it’s nice to make a meal without any distractions. Last night we made this Sausage and Kale Soup. Absolutely delicious and another plus is that it made a rather large pot, so I don’t have to double the recipe to feed all of us. I wasn’t able to take any photos, but trust me, if you like delicious, hearty soups, try it. Well, the wind has been atrocious around here, but we have had a few warmer days, perhaps spring is on it’s way. Hope everyone has a fantastic day.

    Sorry your week was not a good one last week Jennifer. Migraines are the worst. Glad this week has got off to a good start for you. Those scones look absolutely delicious.

    Mr H and I don’t usually go out on Valentines day. We hate the thought that it is expected that you go out and spend a fortune on an overpriced meal for an evening!

    We like to cook together too when the kids go to bed and had a lovely meal (despite me feeling under the weather!).

    The weather here is very grotty too. Let’s hope Spring shows itself soon!!!!!

    Take care

    Hi chickadee! Spring is coming! When I was 5 years old I wrote in my handwriting book, a little poem. It said
    ‘Spring is coming.
    Spring is coming.
    Birdies build your nests!’

    And that’s still how I feel.

    Against all the migraines in the world,
    Loads of love, Amanda xxx

    So sorry about your migraine–hope you’re feeling 100% better now 🙂 Those scones should certainly help! They look wonderful. I’ve heard so much about the book but have been a bit nervous about ordering it as I don’t have much experience with whole wheat flours.

    Kristina,
    This is the first time I’ve used anything other than white or whole wheat and I was pleasantly surprised, you should go for it.

    That looks a great book – I will have to add it to my wish list as I have no book buying money left at the moment! The scones look delicious and healthy – which can’t be bad! Glad you are feeling a bit better, take care and don’t do too much (well you know as little as poss!) Em xx

    Migraines are the worst; especially when you have children as life doesn’t exactly stop:)

    Can’t wait to see more of your treats from that book.
