The Cupcake Lady - SCONES
This morning we had the pleasure of having the Country doctor and the Country lady popping in for a cuppa, they were in town and they were on their way back home to the country.
I only had a short time to prepare something and who doesn't love a good old scone and a cuppa. I know we did and I hope you do too.
