    Egg and cream in scones! what sacrilege! Scones are for when you dont have nuthing in the cupboard but flour, milk and butter ( which dont count)… now with an egg and some cream what a feast you could have WITH your scone! Love the blog, am a Scifi fan but dont know what BSG is so enlighten me. Old friend just moved to Halifax dont tell me its colder than there…we basking (or could be baking) in eternal sunshine down here
