Thankful Thursday March 26, 2015 and Gluten Free Lemon Scones



Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life.
 He who comes to me will never go hungry,
 and 
he who believes in me will never be thirsty.
John 6:35 Niv



Greetings Sweet Friends,

So what is going on in your corner 
of the world??

Yesterday our world was all about lil darling,  she 
wasn't feeling great,  but was sooo good,  she has
 the croup, but think she must be about over it 
already as she didn't really cough that much and
 we didn't have to give her tylenol but once, and
 not really sure she really needed it then, but it
 was more of a precaution. So we were very happy
she is feeling quite a bit better, but not quite up
to par just yet. The only time she did cough was
 if I took her outside, think cause it was pretty 
warm out,  so only did it twice, then realized
 maybe this was not a good thing to do right now,  
but she just loves to swing so much........it's 
hard to keep her away from it. lol

Thought I would show you some pictures of when I
made the gluten free scones a few weeks ago.
I told you about it the day I made them, that it was
my first time to have scones, so wasn't really sure
what they were suppose to taste like, but I just
expected them to taste a bit more lemony, since
they had so much lemon zest, and the batter
smelled so lemony too.  Hubby found some lemon
scones at our Publix grocery store yesterday, and 
they were good and tasted about the same as these,
 so guess they were fine for how a scone is suppose
to be............but you will see I found a lovely
helpmate for them........as you read on......


Well, with that said.......
 on with Thankful Thursday.....

I am thankful.....




#1
for a safe and uneventful trip back from 
Asheville last weekend, and also that we
made good time,  knocked over and hour
off our typical 10 hr. drive somehow, and
we had lots of rain too.





#2
that my Sweet SIL Susan  was still able to take
care of our sweet kitty Molly, cause I was thinking
 we might need to board her this time, but Susan 
has made such a miraculous recovery she wanted
 to do it............and we always can rest easy
cause we know Molly is in good hands with her.





#3
that we are all unpacked and everything put
away and back to our normal schedule.
Always something to be said for normal routine,
as much fun as vacation or changes are.




Tried these toppings......
 and they were okay!





#4
for a few fun things I picked up while we were away,
 some pretty appetizer/bread and butter plates, a new 
cream pitcher for my collection, a Life Beautiful
 magazine, (thought they were no longer in business, 
so was happy to see they are) , some Easter Tree
 ornaments, bunnies  and a squirrel that look like
 they are covered in moss, and a lovely robins egg
blue colored candle called Beach blossom that
has the loveliest aroma............

As the Julia Andrews song goes.........
and These are a few of my favorite things!!   lol





#5
that I was asked by another blogger to do a
post for her blog in June. 
 What a fun and sweet surprise, and I was
just tickled pink that she asked.
Thanks Kris!





#6
that Dee and Jerry might have an offer
on their townhome now have a contract
on their townhome.


#7
for campfire burgers......I made them this week,  and 
they are delicious.  You get a large pc. of  heavy duty
aluminum foil, then season your burger with granulated
 garlic, lawry's seasoned salt, and pepper, then lay your
 burger on the foil, then add some onion slices on top,
then add slices of potatoes, carrots, and bell peppers,
as much or as little as you like. 
Then fold the foil up to make a packet, put on a 
cookie sheet, and put in a 350 degree oven for 1 hr.
After 1 hr. take it out, and open to let the steam out,
 then eat it right out of the packet if you desire,
 then wad it up and throw it away.

easy clean up!  Love it.....
You can do the same with chicken.
  Both are delicious.




This is the lovely helpmate.
It is really Delicious and really
makes a lemon scone for sure!





#8
for the really fun, refreshing, relaxing time we had
with  Dee, Jerry and Rosie last week, Know I have
said it before but just have to say it again, as the
 times linger in my mind.........


#9
for how good it was to see Scott, Megan and the 
baby upon return..........
such a wonderful thing to have family
you enjoy so much....



with posterized affect


#10
for "Cutest blog on the Block" where I
get almost all of my blog backgrounds.
They have so many cute backgrounds,
and I have sure appreciated being able
to use them over these last almost
6 years. Love my new one for Easter.


#11 
that Dee and Jerry decided on another
house that can be amazing if they do
some work on it, as it is a much better
choice monetarily, the really amazing
 one we saw is way overpriced they
 found out,  so they are making a wise
 choice and letting it go..............
Think once this one has some updates
they are gonna really be glad this was
their choice, will just take a lil time to 
get there is all, but they are shakers
and movers, so it want be too long.






Lemon Scones + Lemon Curd =
Yummy to the Tummy!!



 With Extruded Affect for Fun..........lol


#12
that I took down the last of the wintry things 
in the living room today, now just have to add
 a few Easter touches tomorrow. So glad I did
 the family, dining room and kitchen before we
 went away,  since Easter is so early this year.
Didn't move a lot around just took the dark 
things out and put in Easter pcs.for the time
 being,  will change things up a bit more after
 Easter is over so that it looks more like Spring
than Easter...............


Well, that's the run down on
 Cozy Place Blessings.......
and Scone making!!  lol


So glad you came by,  always
 good to hear from you.

Have a Wonderful Weekend,





Love, Hugs and
Lemon Scone and Curd
Blessings,
Nellie

Nellie my love, I just adore your posts. You really are me in another life. Lemon scones and gluten free...yes please! My lil' darlin' said to me this week 'Nanna you are my BEST friend'. That's what life's about, right? Five Star Frugal opens on Mondays now, so you still have time to post your joy for last week, or save it for this week. You are in my thoughts often...Mimi xxx

#1. I was praying for your safe return! Praise our LORD!
#2. I love Molly as if she were my own. I spent time with her outside, petting on her, talking to her, even a hug or two. I know she is so happy you are home!
#3. I am definitely a "creature of habit!"
#4. Have you ever thought of opening a bakery!!! I picked up some Peeps and Robin's Eggs today!
#5. Oh, wow! Let me know so I can visit!
#6. Yea! The LORD is moving them forward!
#7. I need to try this. I have done it with veggies, but never thought to add meat!
#8. Joyful times are meant to be remembered in detail, praise the LORD! I do, when I've been with you and the family!
#9. I'm so glad gave family units to love!
#10. It looks great. Thank you for directing me to them!
#11. I am so glad to hear that! It makes your house personal when you add your own touches!
#12. Spring has done that for outside. The Ospreys have their nests with the babies calling out! The Sandhill Cranes are gathering around with their young! I haven't seen any bunnies as yet.
I love you all, Susan

Well hello! Sounds like things are going well and for all of your family. I am no where ready to blog yet, or even read many, but thought since I had the computer in my lap looking up some business things, I would just peek in. We got our house 3 weeks ago. We got our things 9 days ago. We are painting, cleaning, unpacking, dealing with pool people, alarm people, bank people, furniture people...we may be a bit old for this much work, but we are loving having a house with palm trees! We also love a normal routine, but we don't see one coming anytime soon!
