plain scone

Saying good bye to friends is very difficult and heart-breaking specially when you're close to them.  But, in this world, nothing is permanent, the only permanent thing is change. And the only thing to do in order to survive is adopt to the change.  We'll see them again in some other place, in some other time, in better circumstances.

Last September 11 I went to the flat of ate Rachelle Orozco Rosario for some cooking and baking session. They've already been preparing and packing things as they will soon be leaving Qatar for good. Her cousin Kuya Jong (Joemar Navarro) taught us two recipes:  1.Siopao Chicken asado and 2.Scone.

What is a scone? Scones are considered the easiest English teatime treat. According to wikipedia, a  scone is a single-serving cake or quick bread. They are usually made of wheat, barley or oatmeal, with baking powder as a leavening agent, and are baked on sheet pans. They are often lightly sweetened and are occasionally glazed. The scone is a basic component of the cream tea or Devonshire tea. It differs from a teacake and other sweet buns, which are made with yeast. A scone is in some senses a type of pastry since it is made with essentially the same ingredients as shortcrust, though with different proportions of fat to flour.

If you want to enjoy a sweet treat that is not a cake, if you want a bread but do not have time to wait, scone is the answer to that.  You can have them plain or just add chocolate chips for variety.

Anyway, last September  17, we drove our friends off to the airport.  It has always been difficult for me to see friends leave.  With a heavy heart, I wish you all a wonderful and healthy life.  Thank you for the friendship.  Until we meet again Ate Rach and Roy.  We'll be missing Patrick the most :-)
