Waiting for a Baby

Posted by on Aug 22, 2014 in Breakfast and Brunch | 1 comment

My brother, Bill, and Cynthia are here to stay until their new baby grandson is born.

This morning while they were still sleeping I made scones to greet them.

What do you eat for breakfast when you are "on baby watch"?

Delicate and soft to the touch--just like a newborn.
