my peops say these are the best scones ever

i think i've only ever made scones from a box. but today being father's day, i wanted to surprise dan with something special for breakfast. dan is the kind of guy who will eat a giant chocolate chip cookie for breakfast, if he has access to one. so i thought i'd make chocolate chip scones, because, scones seem more appropriate for breakfast than cookies don't they?

oh they were good. i used this recipe: english royalty chocolate chip scones. the mix was still quite powdery after only three tablespoons of orange juice, so i ended up using five tablespoons oj and two tablespoons of half & half. i formed a thick circle of dough on the cookie sheet and cut it into 8 pieces. i pulled it out of the oven just in time for an airy, light, delectable scone. this was dan's first breakfast.

then i made the kale & cheddar frittata found on ornagette, a very fine second breakfast.

i think i enjoyed dan's breakfast in bed as much as he did!
